"screening"

Postby RocketsDWM » Mon Apr 23, 2007 10:39 pm

Is it really "unethical" to look at an opponents screen while playing a game such as "Gears of War" or some other shooting game?

Yes, it's considered cheap and when I play with a group of friends if someone does it we give them a hard time until they stop. It usually isn't an issue though.

It's one of those things that everyone does, but doesn't admit it, especialy if your split-screening, if it's a LAN, then I would have a bigger problem, but if you're split-screening it, geez, it's impossible not too.

Back when Goldeneye was the game to end all games, everybody did it, nobody had a problem with it, and we actually considered it an advanced strategy, for those who were completely familiar with all of the maps and what have you. Since there's no way to prevent it, you might as well embrace it.

Yup. Viewing two screens at once is a skill, plus the strategy of misleading your opponent by walking in to walls etc when he/she wants to look can be fun.
