I'm going to preface this by saying that I do most of my game playing on PS3 because that's what I own. All three of my roommates, however, own XBoxes, so I do play game on them from time to time. Naturally, all of my roommates bought Gears 3 when it dropped, and it looks awesome (I have, at this point, not played any of it), and it looks pretty goddamn awesome. Same with Gears 2. The games look rad as all hell, and I've played a couple of hours in Gears 2 and every time I do I end up getting frustrated with the controls and give up.
At this point, I think I've probably suck about 10 hours in Gears (campaign only, I'm not interested in online in any way), and every time I try to play the game, I feel like I'm fighting with my controls to get my guy to go what I want him to do. It might just be the fact that I'm more used to the way that dudes move in Uncharted, and I'm having a hard time translating that to the different weight that everyone has in Gears, but it's frustrating and bums me out because these games seem amazing, and I want to play them really really badly.
So, I'm throwing it to the community. Does anyone else out there feel this same way, and was able to work around it? Do I need to just stick with it and eventually I'll just get used to it? I'm at a loss, so I'm asking for any tips that you guys have.
