It appears that I suck

...And I used to be great.  Well, good.  Well, better anyway.
Yesm, that's right, I entered into the online world of COD4 a couple of days ago.  Looking forward to this, I thought.  I did well in the game, I've got good reactions, I even more my share of races in Motorstorm online, so I can't be that bad.
Apparently I was wrong.  On a regular basis - ooh, about every 30 seconds of game play - I get my backside handed to me by, I can only imagine, a twelve year old with 170,000 playing hours behind him and a rating of 'double general super sniper grenade launch specialist' or somewhat.
Depressing is not the word.  Not so much that I'm not as good as I'd hoped.  More that it's a fantastic game and would be great if I stood even the merest chance of getting more than 2 kills a game. 
It's official.  I'm old.  Someone collect my PS3.  Plusnet, shut down my broadband and pass me my knitting.

Hi cyoung,
It may be possible that a change to a superior XBOX360 may help your gaming talents.
I'm sure ASBO DOG will back me up on this one Grin
But don't worry too much - I'm sure you'd hand me my posterior on a plate if you ever caught me playing any FPS' Smiley

Whilst it is true that the XBOX is king of consoles (tm), for games like COD4 a PC is far superior.

Ow, who do I sue? I laughed so hard at Chris' comments that I fell of my chair and hurt myself.  Crazy
King of consoles? Only in the minds of MS fanbois.

I don't actually mean that at all, by the way - it's just a poke at the one-upmanship. Personally as long as you're playing computer games and enjoying them then you win as far as I'm concerned.
Sorry for OT Tongue

I think it's a mis-spelling of the french for 'raspberry'

Re: It appears that I suck

Ignoring the half-assed attempt to turn my own self-confessed untrue joke against me (Tongue) I'm intrigued by the addition of the Atari Jaguar to that list... the controller was ugly and impossible to use, it wasn't true 64 bit, it wasn't as powerful as the middle of the road PCs that were out at the time, there weren't any good games out for it and it was far too expensive for what it was.
Oh, and also... how cheap do you need to be to use a telephone number pad for the extra buttons on your console controller? In what universe was that ever going to be a good idea?
Dammit, atari, you got so much right in your past, how could you ruin yourselves like that?

Re: It appears that I suck

If God played consoles he would pick the PS3 therefore vis-a-vis xbox sucks. Fact. Cheesy
Oh and yes I've had games of COD where it feels like I'm firing with a water pistol compared other peoples pocket cannons. Last time I checked 5 - 10 shots from a gun would take any man down except maybe bruce willis and 50 pence

This can't be a fact, as in order to prove it you would need to prove the existence of God. Since proving that God exists immediately proves, by God's own arguments, that God does not in fact exist, there is no way that that statement can possibly be true.
QED.
