Ever wonder why your buddy is so much better at video games then you are? Can’t figure out why games take you twice as long as some people? Well, there are a few simple things you can do to increase your chances of making the leap from n00b to 1337.

Take a Deep Breath

Patience is the ultimate virtue, especially in relation to video games. I know you are anxious to get the new hotness loaded and your avatar into battle, but take a deep breath, it’s not going anywhere. Before strapping up your M4 and getting smoked by people who are well versed in the nuances in the game, take some time to learn the basics. That is, KNOW THE CONTROLS.

This is accomplished by taking 5 minutes and reading the instructions. Or, if you are illiterate, check out the tutorial. If you are too stubborn to do either of these things, or if you think you are just. that. good. then you probably don’t need to read the rest of this (do it anyway) and you most likely will crush me. But chances are, you suck and need to read this, just like I need to write it. Bottom line is, walk before you run. Learn the game first so you can focus on the intricacies as you play.
