Sometimes, one game’s mechanics can help overcome other game’s mechanics.
I’ve noticed I got a good hang of Enemy Territory Wolfenstein, after trying it out for a bit. A few years back, when I was still into TF2, I couldn’t keep up with the pace of W:ET, everything happened too fast.
However, the drawback of playing too much DB made any slower shooter too slow for me to play. I keep thinking “Why aren’t the moving faster?! What a slow paced game!”.
Even though I can keep up with DB’s pacing, I still suck at playing old school arena shooters in PvP. Too much advanced movement and item pickup strategy…
