    I was lagging, Whats your excuse?! Unbelieveable that some who is unable to use their fingers can kick ass at Modern Warfare 2! I wonder what people think when you beat them? Invite someone to your house and 1 v 1 them with wrists only :)

    Well played, it doesnt look easy at all. I think you would have an easier time on a 360 pad though as the sticks are further apart.

    Whoa. This is inspirational man. A movie should be made about this. He's paralyzed and he still plays better than me. Amazing. Just amazing.

    Why'd he pick such a crap game? Is anyone else so fixed to games that they would play by any means necessary? I mean, there's limits. Also (cheesy jokes alert): I don't think he'd be too handy on your team, would he? I wouldn't mind giving him the finger, because he couldn't do it back! I'm sorry, I know it's cruel, but someone's got to say them.

    That's really awesome, if I saw him playing in a game I would have no idea. He's really good considering the circumstances (better than some of my friends =P)

    my dad does the same thing who cares?
  • Manguy17 - June 5, 2010 9:39 a.m.

    It would be good to know how he played before this happned, so we could see how much of an impact it makes, sounds bad but it would be good if he played bad before, then we would know that you dont get any worse if you can do this, regardless this is pretty amazing
