Bullsh*t, elitist attitude. You sound like a prick, Mike.
Auto aim is for people that cant play the game. Free aim all day everyday.
I enjoy free aim quite a bit, but it is not as indicative to real life as auto aim. In real life, if a guy was in a car driving away from me, I would have a pretty damn good chance at shooting him in the head as he drove away. Using free aim to do the same in GTA is nearly impossible. Again, I enjoy free aim, but it's annoying when I know that in a real situation, I could easily have taken the guy out.
Give me a break pal this proves my point you cant actually play the game as intended. I have become very good at shooting other players in cars at any angle and any speed. On free aim... yeah sometimes you miss but thats life. Your post makes you look like a right nob mate hahhaha not me.
Because in real life we all have auto aim don't we
Play the game as intended? Oh ... so you're the guru on how these games were intended to be played? I guess I'll go to you from now on to make sure that I'm doing it the "correct" way. lol
I never said that it's IMPOSSIBLE to shoot people on foot when they're in a car ... it's just MUCH harder. I've shot people like that in free aim quite a bit, in fact. But even the most seasoned free aim player in GTA IV -- guys who played Mafiya Work and Death Match for five years straight, every single week (some, almost ever day) -- will tell you that staying in a car gives you a big advantage. It's because of the mechanics of the game -- driving in a circle, spinning the camera, and shooting is mechanically much easier and faster than a person spinning in a circle trying to track you will ever be, even with the sensitivity turned all the way up. Heck, the driving/shooting is completely unrealistic, because firing a gun from a moving vehicle is damn hard to do with any kind of accuracy. If you still don't think that's all true, though, I'll introduce you to a few guys who can prove it with relative ease.
And in real life, YES ... we kinda do have auto aim. It's called being a human being with REAL REFLEXES instead of restrictive game mechanics. Perhaps you've never shot a gun in real life, but I have ... quite a bit, in fact. If I have two targets several feet away from me, I can shoot one dead center (or at least close -- it's been a while since I've been out shooting) and then snap to the next target, "lock on," and hit that one within seconds. And if a car passes me, and I want to take a shot at the driver, I can -- as a human being with real reflexes -- immediately spin and take car before the guy is halfway down the street. These are things that you simply cannot do in games like this, because the mechanics don't make it possible. So being great at free aim simply gives a perception of being superior ... which is apparently what you're going for.
I know a bunch of great free aim players, but I've only met ONE player so far who has really amazed me at free aim. This guy can make amazing shots -- so amazing that even the free aim players who don't know him will think he's somehow cheating by using auto aim in a free aim match. I've seen videos of him playing and it's freaky -- he's really intense about it and he sets his sensitivity all the way up and only using the small dot for his reticle. How did he learn to do this? He says that he spent two years in free roam, using only free aim, playing an average of 4-6 hours every day. Most people don't have that kind of time or dedication.
But, honestly, why does it matter? Play the game however you want. We all love playing games here. But don't waddle in here and pull a superiority complex over a video game that proves nothing except you can jerk off really well. Seriously, I thought AMERICANS were the assholes of the world. Show some class, man.
