I’m sorry, but I played my first COD (Black Ops) about a year ago since I got it for free, with almost no prior experience with shooters. I was the lowest scoring member of the team almost every match, with a kill to death count of something like 3 to 6 on average. And this persisted for like… I dunno, a long damn time over a course of weeks, covering at least 40 hours minimum of gameplay. And I came out of that experience, with an average ratio of like… 5 to 4. In other words, I still sucked.
Actually that wasn’t even the point I was trying to make. Man I’m tired. Basically, when I first started playing I played through most of story mode thinking it’ll get me more acquainted with the actual shooter gameplay. I killed practically nobody in a few online matches that followed and died a lot, so I went to practice how to aim better, went to learn the characteristics of the guns available to me, and then went back to online and continued to suck for some time.
Point being, this is no different than getting demolished online or by a CPU, going to training mode and getting more familiar with your character, and then going back online to get crushed.
If people have this magic formula for what constitutes “immediate fun” when you don’t know how to play something that does possess some level of depth, you better spell it out here. Because I’m not seeing it.
