Frans is 8 years old and is one of those "gifted" kids, the
kind that turns into a
violin protege once in a while. So, what we could have HERE is the
up-and-coming world's youngest Doomgod.
He and his Dad wanted to watch me play Doom (they may have mistaken me
for a Doomgod, what with the name "BahdKo" and all), so I played Doom2
maps 1 through 9 on Skill 4 for them. Frans had his Doom2 manual out
the whole time, watching for which new monsters that had been found, as
well as closely watched my game. He noted the specific weapon use, the
use of infighting, the routes, and the secrets. Shortly thereafter, he
took the mouse and keys and began playing like a pro!! (well, almost).
He needs some better equipment though, like a smaller and lighter
mouse to better match his wrist/hand size and strength, and a good
mousing surface. And his Dad needs to upgrade that 1.666 to 1.9 so he
can watch and record demos. When he gets more comfortable with his
config (WASD) someone will need to teach him straferunning.
