you're simplifying it a bit. if you're just pubbing cs you don't need half those "requirements," just like if you play quake or ut competitively you need much more than just quick reaction time and a sturdy keyboard.Originally posted by: JAG87
the reason cs is such a good game (and im talking about 1.6, not source) is because it requires pretty much every skill in gaming.
it requires stealth
it requires reaction time
it requires good aim
it requires recoil control
it requires good vision (some models are hard to spot in certain maps)
ir requires good hearing
it requires hand-eye syncronization
it requires team work
it requires good communication
What is required to be good at unreal or quake? quick reaction time, and a sturdy keyboard, thats it.
I dont think any other game will ever match cs 1.6, in fact I think I will still be playing it 10 years from now, and it will still have the most online players.
if you want to actually be good at quake, you need aim, reaction time, knowing the maps inside and out, knowing item spawn timers, know where your opponent is going to spawn, etc. at the highest level, quake isn't just running around shooting each other. there is a ton of strategy involved.
