I’d bought a Playstation (PS2, I think, or maybe the first version) for my kid when he was little, but I never played it.
I used to play on my computer (Mac) with keyboard and mouse too, so I’m doing the reverse, moving to controllers. I like my new setup with the PS4 though, attached to a projector and speakers, laying back and looking at the huge 86" screen on my wall, and not having to sit at a desk or on a chair for hours to play. I feel more immersed in the games.
But yes I smiled when you mentioned the ‘aiming’ because I’m in the same boat now with that (and camera movements too). I wish there was some sort of ‘training room’ to practice whichever game I’m in without getting shot in the back. Moving the thumb sticks just to look around and move the camera views takes some getting used to, too. I think it’s the sensitivity because I end up overshooting my targets when aiming and turning as well.
After about a week of no change, I woke up one day and my character moved exactly like I wanted it to.
Ha, I hope that eventually happens to me. I’ll keep at it though.
