I have no doubt that this subject has been brought up countless times, and I'm sure that my even asking will make some people cranky. Or maybe not?
I've never really been into shooters. Medal of Honor and Call of Duty never interested me personally, and I could never get into Halo, but there's stuff coming out in the last few years that seem cool. I'd really love to be able to play Overwatch, for example. To be honest, I don't think my lack of interest in the genre generally has anything to do with the quality of the games themselves; it's partly due to the fact that I'm just not good at/used to them.
I have a condition that affects both my fine motor skills and my ability to process stimuli, so right now things like multiplayer shooters feel like I'm being bombarded with stuff that I can't make sense of. I can improve, however. My parents got me my first system to improve my hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, and games helped me come a long way from the kid they said would never be able to type or tie his shoes or handle button flies.
So for all these reasons I'd like some advice on what people think could be a good entry-level shooter. I'm used to some first-person stuff already, namely Skyrim and Fallout 3 (although honestly it's either use VATS or gtfo.) The only recent shooter-type multiplayer I've seen is Uncharted 2 or 3. Tried playing that once. Got WAY too overstimulated. I think I killed someone once on accident and felt like I had climbed Mt. Everest.
Any help would be appreciated. I want to at least be able to appreciate what my friends get out of this stuff.
