    I just got this crap game called counter terrories special forces for the p.c.
    and before you can play it and get straight it 2 the Missions
    You have 2 do a training level that tels you how 2 shot the guns and basically walk forward
    and duck for cover and stuff like that.
    The thing is that (pees) me of is that i just like 2 get sraight in 2 the game with out haveing
    2 do any training Missions at all.
    Do the game manufactures think That i have 2 be told how 2 press keys on a keyboard
    and what a mouse button does in the game.:laugh:
    Some times i think its insulting my gameing experience i have.
    I can understand them doing that for people that have never played a game in there life before.
    it reminds me of the sony playstation about 70% of the games i played on that did the same.:cry:

    whats your thoughts on games like that.?

    I agree the training missions are crap, usually they dont take too long. I think it's a bigger insult to put a minimum requirements for a PC game that would only get 10FPS on lowest settings. This is very misleading to first time gamers, but even more stupid to the people that know computer hardware.

    There should be training missions, but there should also be a way to skip them.

    +1 on that.

    I hate doing training missions, but sometimes there are a few things in the game that are different from most games that you wouldn't know right off the bat. I hate how they always break down the simple things waaay too much, but the things that are actually new and/or complex have inadequate instructions in some games.

    Click the "online" or "internet" button in any random game, you'll find out that most gamers are actually idiots. So to answer your question: Yes.

    forgot about that part :rolleyes:

    I'm used to playing most of my games offline since I don't have very good connection.

    i reckon that game manufactures put a minimum requirement for PC games just 2 get more,
    Sales out of the game.
    there was some think in a magazine i was reading about this once and it stated that the
    game Programmers aint happy about the game distributers puting on the game box,
    minimum requirements for games there have programed and put all the hard work of
    Good Graphics in 2 a game,
    Just so some one would by the game and play it at low setings and miss out on the nice
    Graphics:shadedshu

    I agree on that i just hate it when you cant skip the training missions.
  9. atarist Guest

    True,
    some times i by a game and just wont play it because of the training mission and the hard
    Learning curve in the games like role playing games.

    Yeah, his grammar and spelling aren't the best... maybe the tutorial level was designed for people who aren't the avid typers, or english speakers

    I like training levels if its got some brand new elements not seen in most if any games. But games like CoD4 seriously DO NOT need training levels.

    Another +1. I dont think they should take them out cause on difficult games even for the hxc pwn3rer (for instance a NEW rts) a tutorial is great to figure out the controls. If i didnt have a tutorial of sorts for Devil May Cry 4 i woulda been lost. But like on a normal game like Halo its not needed. So they should offer a way to skip (Unless its simple and implied into the actual story thats needed)

    How about not having a training level for any gamer who chooses a difficulty level over Medium? So that way a hardend gamer can skip right over the crap and get right to the game.

    This also is more than just training levels. Most games have gradual levels with increasing difficult. One could say I'm a fairly good gamer, why can I just skip the training levels and the first 2 levels since they are pud.

    I personally like them because I don't bind my own keys to games. With the run down, it tells me what button does what, and in doing so doesn't force me to keep opening up options/keyboard configuration to how to do something/.

    To hell with getting rid of them!!!!

    *facepalm*

    Not exactly making a good argument for ourselves, are we?:roll:

    I like training levels; I'm not the type that can just pick up a game and get after it.

    I think it's crap, but HL2 has the right idea. It teaches you while you are playing - e.g. in the trainstation, unless you want to get hit by the cop, you have to pick up the can and throw it away, and it tells you how to do it there. That kind of tutorial - teach you while playing the main game - is better. No dedicate training, just plain action from the start.
