I happen to be a person who has grown up on video games. I would say I'm an extreme veteran gamer.
(30 years experience.... still haven't grown up by choice!!!)
I find it pretty easy to grab the controller of any console & fairly seemlessly adapt to any game. Here's the thing..... While I have played for most of my life, especially in the earlier years of my gaming youth, there wasn't a lot of people like me that could play well so I guess I've always been used to the less coordinated than average gamer. Gaming is a lot bigger now than it was back then so there's plenty of competition.
I can understand your frustrations because I have also been in similar situations, but I think we, as the gaming community, should whole heartedly support all gamers whether they're pro's or shmoe's; because the more people that are playing, the more support the console & game developers get, so the harder they'll work on breaking the limits of gaming developement!
Not everyone is good at everything my young friends. Have some patience with your clutsy gaming friends & do what you can to help when ever you can!
Without them, we might not be enjoying gaming as we know it today, & you probably wouldn't be as good as you all think you are! :D
I haven't played World At War yet but I have to agree with the postings above me. You should start with COD4. There are more people that have that game so the chance of getting into some good online play is statistically higher. I would also assume that the weapons are better because the developers of this series pride themselves in creating a "frame of time" type of realism & COD4 is modern & the COD WaW would have older weapons because its time frame is based during WWII. (Personally, I like the newer guns!)
As far as the headset goes, I suggest getting one no matter which game you choose. It adds a certain flare to any online play!
You all may think I'm crazy but the first time I thought "Whoa!" was when I played Jet Moto 2....... & in a close second was Virtual fighter.
At the time, they'd come a long way from C-Vision, Atari, & Odessy, which are the consoles I started with close to 30 years ago.
Few of my Tech sigs, what ya think?
I like the second one a little more. Decent CG on both though. Excelent job!
