    so i got my dad playing this.....

    yeah man i can't believe i actually got my dad to try this game out. he's 50 years old and has NEVER played a first person shooter. it took him about an hour to get the hang of the controls and learn you have to use R3 to look and L3 to move and use them together at the same time lol

    but he LOVES the game....he won't get off my ps3 now and is officially addicted. i know most of you out there won't care less about my words but i thought it was a funny little story and wanted to share it

    You're how old and your dad's 50? I guarantee you I'm at least 10 years younger than you, and my dad's 50 as well. He's decent in fighting games though, but I know he can't handle an FPS.

    Maybe my cousins outta bring Bioshock 2 at our house and let my dad play it

    i'm 28 and yeah this is his very first attempt at a FPS. he gets excited and starts pushing every button when a lot of splicers come at him but he's playing on easy so he doesn't die easy at all lol i'm just surprised he even likes it cause he mostly plays sports and racing games....but i've got him hooked now lol

    My mom loves games like Tetris, Dr.Mario, Suduko, Mahjong etc.. but my dad never played any games. The only game I ever saw him play was Kirby's Avalanche back in the 90's. Pretty cool that your dad is getting into games, johnny... but what took him so long?

    My mom used to love Tetris (still does but doesn't get a chance to play it) My dad tried to game once and that was on X-men for the NES. He was Colossus and was annoyed because Colossus was getting hurt by stuff. I remember him saying "This is so unreal Colossus should just smash through the walls"

    Oh dad, if you only knew how shitty that game really is you wouldn't be complaining about such a stupid thing

    Thats awesome!! I remember when the first Diablo game came out for the PC. I got my dad hooked on it he would never let me play. He would stay up until 3 or 4 am and play it. Its fun getting parents hooked on games.

    LOL!

    My dad used to like racing games until I got better at it than him by the time I was 6. Now he's reluctant to play a new one. I think my dad would be better off at BioShock than yours since he plays fighting games and has some skill in shooting games. As soon as I get BioShock, our fathers should race for

    he's always been into games but stuff like tiger woods, ncaa, and midnight club. stuff like that. he just never had any interest in anything like bioshock but i begged him to at least try it and play for at least and hour and that's all it took. he's hooked.

    I got my mom hooked on tetris back in the NES days. Only game either of my parents have ever played. She plays a little handheld tetris to this day.
