This game has ruined first person shooters for me...

In a good way.

Seriously though, I used to play everything from Quake 1, 2, 3 to Unreal Tournament, Half-Life and all of their respective mods.
Ever since this game came out though I have not touched any of those games. Well, yesterday I decided to play a quick game of Quake 3 Urban Terror.

Needless to say it did not go well. After falling to my death several dozen time because I forgot I could not jump from rooftop to rooftop, I though I finally had readjusted.

I didn't.
I think the crowning moment was when a guy came around the corner, pointed an M-4 point blank in my face, and I instinctively responded by trying to Force pull the gun from his hands...

The guy who shot me: "Dude what are you doing, don't just stand there."

Me: "Err..my mouse screwed up..."

its forums like this one that ruin the game. i dont recall any of the quakes having forums for everyone and their mom to come whine about being killed a certain way. in other previous FPS, people took their asskickings like men. sure they whined a little, but nothing like it is on jk2.

its hard for me to consider jk2 a first person "shooter". since i mainly use the saber and the force to kill my foes.

im stuck between a rock and a hard place. i hate the patch, but i dont want another one. id rather things stay the way they are than to risk more bad changes.

I was playing laser quest (not a video game, you actually run around with a little laser and a sensor vest...not too sure how many people know about laser quest) and I tried to force grip a guy. How embarrassing

I was playing SOF2 myself and I expected Mullins to block their bullets. That didn't turn out so well.

Then of course in GTA3, the guy runs so damn slow and only jumps half a foot.

Y'know, I never had much of a problem with the patch. Mainly because I haven't played this game at all during it's pre-patched eras. And I kinda installed the update when I was trying to get the damn thing to run on this comp, so my game has *never* been opened running a pre-patched version. But coming from a guy who started out on the patch, I can't see what all the bitching and moaning is about. This game is fun. Sure, there's a bit of saber-spamming with certain moves (*cough*heavywhores*cough*backstab*cough*DFA*cough *hack*). But I've already found counters for most of the moves being bitched, and I'm confident that in time I'll know a few good counters for ALL the damned spams. I have no problem with the game whatsoever.

But, enough of that. Focusing at the topic at hand, I'll have to agree. I can't play my other shooters anymore either lol. My first instincts are always things like "yeah...just wait till I bitch this guy with my saber! ...oh, damn..."
