comment State Machines: State Object versus sequential check: what are the pro/cons?
@NoobSaibot Yes, but you could argue that about anything. The if-else could suffer from poor branch prediction, the state pattern as described above may suffer from the vtable lookup overhead. Both are unlikely unless you have a ton of states. So the real answer to your question is "it depends".
