    Do You Ever Get Confused About What Game You're Playing?

    I just had this happen to me. I was playing MW3 Survival and must've thought I was playing Dead Island because I tried to run up to an enemy and kick them with L2. lol I've had this happen to me a few times with some other games too ... confusing the controls of one with another.

    Anyone else have this happen to them?

    I often play BF3 and have Skyrim controls throw me off. This also happens when I go from one FPS to another.

    All the damn time. The controls will be extremely similar, but some buttons would do different things, and I wanted to do something in Just Cause 2 that you can only do in inFamous and I was flabbergasted.

    Uncharted 2 - After playing Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, I kept pressing R2 trying to call the stupid AI.

    I started playing GTAIV again and after playing MW3 for a while I got really confused. Or when I try to go into cover in FPS games after playing TPS games.

    It sounds to me like you need to find a new time to start playing games, because starting at 4:20 is messing with your mind

    Most shooters the run button is the L3 button and when i play Call of Juarez bound in blood I try to run with L3 button. It don't work. The L2 button is run. So yeah I do get confused sometimes.

    Yes this has happened to me a few times but it doesn't last. If i haven't played a game online for quite a while, i will need a few games to warmup again before i can play like a gillette mach 3 razor.

    I do this alot. Two biggest I've noticed was Split Second/NFS:HP and MW2/MOH:Frontline. I played SS for so long that when I started up NFS, I couldn't figure out why parts of the track weren't blowing up when i wanted them to and in Frontline, I would take cover after being shot, notice my health wasn't going up and it would take me a minute to remember which game I was in

    I don't remember what game it was but it kept pissing me off because I kept throwing grenades by accident. This wouldn't be a problem if more games let you customize your controls

    I think the worst was when Modnation came out for PSP/PS3. I had it for both but the controls were vastly different so I kept using items when I meant to gas etc.

    It usually happens when I switch between fps such as going from Borderlands to Fallout. However, I get the occasionaly messup. Such as after I plat'ed F3AR I was playing Resident Evil and I tried to use slo-mo quite a few times xD

    Play Borderlands as the Siren for a week, then try to play BF3. When I'm low on Health I try to phasewalk, and in turn I throw a grenade. Damn brain getting used to one set of controls at a time.
