Play only one game. They all feel and handle differently.

A lot of it comes down to strategy. If you just run out guns blazing youre gonna get mowed down pretty fast regardless of how quick and accurate you are. When I play I focus more on locating the enemy and getting myself into a favorable position. Try playing with headphones on and listening for foot steps or other things that give away the enemy position. One of my favorite things to do in BC2 is toss a few grenades around and listen for any enemies that call out. Most important thing to do though is have fun! Play the game for what it is, a game.

And as mentioned before, it's not just aiming, its also anticipation. Use headphones too, My friends and I used to be able to follow people through the wall just by sound alone (cs 1.5 and css).
This right here. The original CS was really the first PC FPS that I played much of at all, I never really played much beyond casual console games before that. Then CS got me addicted. And I got owned for a long time, both as a combination of being a first time CS player and, even more so, being (pretty much) a first time PC FPS player. However, I still play CS, it will always be my first love, I'll never grow tired of it. CS is a little more like modern FPS's than something like Quake, but it's pretty much just the core of an FPS game with very few extras. Most guns don't even zoom in, and no guns use any sort of sights (other than sniper rifle scopes), not even iron sights.

That said, CS is a pretty tough one to start in, I think. Most of the "newbies" have moved on to newer games, and new players are going to buy games like Call of Duty and Crysis rather than Counter-Strike. So you're going to be left with more seasoned Counter-Strike players. That said, once you get decent at Counter-Strike, you'll probably start being pretty decent in any other game you play, as far as aiming and basic FPS strategy goes (once you get the basic mechanics and feel of the new games down). You'll need to get a feel for how the game shoots and handles recoil, and find your favorite weapons and learn them well.

Definitely use a headset. Listening to footsteps and listening for the direction of gunfire is often overlooked by new players as an incredibly helpful strategy. If you use speakers, you probably won't be quite as successful, especially if it's just a 2.1 (or less) speaker setup. There's some other little strategies you can learn for specific games. Such as in Call of Duty, you can use flashbangs and stun 'nades to actually find out if there is an enemy in the next room or around a corner, which is honestly even more important than the actual blinding or stunning of the enemy (but is an added perk). That won't work in some games though, like Counter-Strike because there's no hit markers when you hit an enemy (other than blood on the wall and ground behind him when you hit him).

You just need practice, it takes time to get decent at FPS's, and then it takes additional time to get good at a specific game when you start playing it for the first time. One other thing to help is to try playing the campaign of games that have them, and play them on the easiest difficulty. That will help you to be able to practice aiming without having to worry terribly much about them killing you too quickly. Then when easy difficulty is no longer a huge challenge, increase to medium difficulty, and so forth.

Also, some game modes aren't all about kills. Such as in Battlefield. If you get no kills but revive teammates or supply ammo or repair vehicles well and you help capture points or plant explosives (or defuse if you are defending), then you are much better than a sniper that goes gets 30 kills with 2 deaths (not to say that a good sniper covering a flag or strategic point isn't immensely helpful).

[EDIT] I forgot to mention what is probably the biggest key to becoming good at FPS games: Learning the maps like the back of your hand. Once you learn where every nook and cranny enemies can hide, all of the best places to shoot from, learning what points you can see from whatever position you are at, learn the tendencies of where most people seem to go for particular maps. This is probably the biggest and most helpful thing of all, and it just takes paying attention to the maps and spending lots of time playing them.


Or, you don't have to play FPS's at all. There are other games. Try third person shooters, maybe they are more natural for you. Maybe driving games. Maybe get addicted to WoW like it seems everyone else other than me is. Try action/adventure games like Assassin's Creed or Prince of Persia or Batman: AA. Play Minecraft and create stuff, or Garry's Mod. Try KOTOR. You don't have to play FPS games.

The key in FPS games is anticipation. Be aware of your surroundings/cover/teammates.

FPS games are a mind set for me. If I go and play an MMO or RTS game, then come back and play an FPS game it will take some time for me to adjust.

Running around like a chicken with your head cut off is not how it's done. Sometimes staying back a little and letting the battle unfold in front of you, allows you to adjust.

Also, aim for the upper chest. This will get you a lot of solid kills and quite a few headshots.

Crysis 2 is a crap game built for noobs. That's why. Stick to Wars. It's much better.

About your aim: most pros do 180 degree turns somewhere between 8-16 inches depending on the speed of the game. Example sens would be 800 DPI and 10 in-game sens and 6/11 windows. Or 1800 DPI, 4 in-game sens and 3/11 windows. (both around 9"/180) Or DPI 400, in-game sens 12, 6/11 windows (~14"/180)

Brain is also important. Perfect aim doesn't really matter if your opponent always ends up behind you. Especially at these sensitivities cause turning around takes time.
