Twitching


#1

So, you all know I shit at it, but I ok at driving games, which one could argue is almost ultimate twitch…

How TF do I improve at twitchy shit?

Thinking on it - driving is not SO twitchy - reaction of vehicles is expected and known, so not SO much processing nor twitch as I have an expectation, so am ready to react…

Halp?

Practice mate pure & simple. Not the greatest myself but playing plenty of twitchy games does help improve your reaction times.


#3

What Pete said. The “twitch” is actually just recognising a situation and reacting in a practised way. Reflexes are learned. Read “Bounce” by Matthew Syed it’s great at explaining.


#4

Yep, practice makes perfect. If you are talking about shooters then teaching yourself where to look would be a good starting point. Essentially spot people before they spot you. Then your reactions don’t need to be as fast.

Its an age thing Pants :wink:

Thats why I play ARMA Wastelands, not twitchy at all, you have time to plan your attacks or ambushes :slight_smile:


#6

That is true ofcourse, reactiontimes go down overtime.

Fair points! I have done a bit of real driving and have a slight clue about “feel” and vehicle dynamics / weight transfer etc, so I suspect that I r ok at driving games due to that and the inordinate amount of hours I have played them, thus practise. Mind, I will question that it’s made my driving perfect!!! :joy:

I didn’t think of it like that, TBH… Ta!
