Call of Duty Ghosts: How to Have Fun on Call of Duty Ghosts
A Quick Note
Before I begin to run through some of the things that you can do to have fun in Call of Duty Ghosts, you need to remember that you decide whether or not you are having fun, nothing else determines this for you. Of course sometimes most games can feel very tedious and non-enjoyable to say the least, however at the end of the day you have the ability to make your experience entertaining or boring.
Furthermore, you should note that even the most frustrating tasks can be made pleasant, through simple changes to your attitude... Just something to bear in mind!
Tip 1: Change the Way you Play
The first thing that you have to appreciate about any game you play, is that eventually after using the same class load-outs and play-style for sometime you will find yourself getting bored. The easiest way to combat this is to make some changes. Use a rifle that you have never used before, or try out another type of gun completely. It is important that you ensure that you change what you are using every 5 or so games, so that you can keep the gameplay interesting and push yourself to learn how to use more weapons.
With regard to your play-style, Call of Duty Ghosts is very much a camper oriented game, which means that you need to check every corner you pass whilst playing. However this does not mean that you have to take the game slowly, as you can surprise most campers by jumping around corners, or utilising the slide function in the game. It is always a good idea to pre-fire your weapon when possible, as this means that you can have a distinct advantage over your opponent.
Tip 2: Change your Attitude.
I already mentioned this at the beginning of the article, but it is very true when it comes to enjoying anything in life. You need to change your attitude! Even the most interesting of activities can be made exhausting and dull if you inhabit a negative attitude. Instead of getting angry and breaking your controller when you are killed in the game, try to laugh instead. What you will find is that not only will you progressively have more fun, but you will also feel like playing the game more too.
It is worth mentioning that sometimes it is justifiable to become enraged at Call of Duty Ghosts as it is a very competitive game, although you should always at least fake a laugh to keep your attitude positive.
Still VERY Relevant for Ghosts
Tip 3: Don't Play the Game!
This is by far the best tip that I have for making Call of Duty Ghosts fun, and it involves playing something else completely. When you play a certain game for a long amount of time, you are almost certain to become fed up of playing it eventually, and therefore taking a break can help you to enjoy it once you start playing again. Sometimes you need a break from different things in life to let yourself breathe, and appreciate what you found entraining in the game, before it became a pain to play.
My advice would also be to not play any other FPS games during your break. Playing too many FPS games can eventually make the genre tiresome, so make sure to experiment with RPGs (Role Playing Games not the rocket launchers!), MMOs and other games that generally do not involve shooting guns.
Tip 4: Play with Friends
Playing with friends can make an extremely boring game a very entertaining one! If you are used to playing games by yourself with no contact with anyone else, you may find that playing with other people and communicating via Skype can restore the enjoyment factor of Call of Duty Ghosts. Or any game for that matter... The truth of the matter is that without someone to talk to, video games can become quite a lonely hobby, which eventually will become no fun whatsoever. Try to always play Ghosts with at least one or two other people, who actually enjoy the game, and you will see a definite change in your attitude towards the game.
If you do not have any friends who are willing to play Call of Duty Ghosts with you, do not worry! There are always people in forums who you can get in contact with and build friendships that way. Who knows you may have just found your perfect comrade!
