I have to say, I avoided first person shooters on console for as long as I could. However, my girl is a HALO junkie. I played CounterStrike years and years ago on PC and could hold my own fairly well. Put a controller in my hands instead of a mouse and keyboard, I'm about as dangerous as a wet kitten. I finally started playing the game with her and have been improving. I have to say that once you unlock most of the weapons and other combat goodies, it's a very good time. I don't ever come out on top but I do manage to piss people off with my unorthodox playing style. That being, "run into combat, throw all grenades, punch as many mofo's as possible, die". Apparently there are some people who don't so much "enjoy" the game as they "live" the game. Ah well.
