I have been playing Halo since the first incarnation, but never played online (Xbox Live) until Halo 3. When I started playing online almost 2 years ago (during the Halo 3 Alpha), I realized how bad I am compared to other players out there. Once it went live, I realized that I TOTALLY SUCKED compared to other people out there. Since then, I have played enough that I have gotten better at sniping, throwing grenades and using my battle rifle. However, I am still trying to figure out how to constantly jump and still shoot accurately, jump and snipe accurately and shoot / snipe accurately while being shot at.
For those of you out there who also play Halo 3 online and are willing to share some tips and tricks with me (and a few other close friends), please feel free to comment with those on my blog. :-)
To continue this thread, I finally caved in and bought my son Call of Duty 4 and he is now playing that game online. He let me play a few times for a few minutes, but I REALLY REALLY SUCKED at that game. I have a very hard time seeing the opponent, let alone shoot them. If it took me 2 years to just get semi decent at Halo 3, how long will it take me to get semi decent at COD4? Once again, any tips and tricks?
Or, is it true that I'm just too old to really learn and should just accept that I'm as good as I'll get? That happens to be my son's opinion. How does everyone else "deal" with this scenario?

TRY USEING A UAV JAMMER OF COD4 THEN ENERMYS CANT SEE U ON THE MAP WHEN THEY GOT A UAV ALSO USE A SILENCER TO TOTALY PUT YOR SELF IN STEALTH MODE, OK?
MY 2ND TIP IS IF YOUR A BAD SHOOTER (AIMIMG .ECT) TRY USEING A RED DOT SCOPE OF COD4 IT MAKES THE EASYER FOR BEGINNERS ALSO I SURGEST USEING A G36c OR A M4 Carbine WITH RED DOT SIGHTS THEY`VE GOT THE BEST AIM ALSO THE G36c HAS GREAT DANGE WHILST THE M4 Carbine DOESNT.
3RD TIP IS TRY OUT GROUND WAR THERES MORE PLAYERS AND ALSO IT A GOOD CHOISE FOR NEW PLAYERS GROUND WAR CONSIST
OR DOMINNATION AND TEAM DEATH MATCH, DOMINE NATION GIVES U LESS XP BUT ITS STILL GOOD.
P.S : I OWN A PLAYSTAION3 SO I HOPE THESE TIP ARNT DIFFERENT FOR XBOX 360, O AND HAPPY GAMEING. MY ONLINE NAME OF PS3 IS LEATHLEY. =]
O I ALMOST FORGOT THE M4 CARBINE IS UNLOCKED AT LEVEL 10 AND THE G36c at level 37.
Just like COD4 Nut said, it will get much easier after you upgrade some of the weapons. I'm like you an aging GEN X guy. I just figure that I don't have the time to be as good as the younger guys anymore so I accept it but it is still easy to have fun.
It took me a few months to get decent at COD4. The biggest tip is concentrate on your aiming and you will be fine. The really good players seem to never miss.
I'm a former Army guy too so just like a real M16...accuracy is key :)
