I think I'm a conscientious objector

"Whatever the mode, things happen fast in Call of Duty. When a match starts, the first engagements tend to happen within five seconds. One-on-one battles last the time it takes for one player to get off around three accurate shots against an opponent Ė this is milliseconds. Itís a frenetic experience...

I mean, Iím 46, so Iím well past the prime for online shooters. Professional gamers who compete for millions of dollars in world CoD tournaments tend to hit their peak in their late teens and theyíre out of it by 25...

Oh God, maybe I should just take up cycling."

Sometimes it is worth reading a wee bit beyond the title of the thread before responding.
