the old dog learns a new trick

My brother got an Xbox One as a premium for 15yrs at his job, and so I am slowly learning the arcane ways of the controller as an input device. I'm pleased to report that after spending some time with Zoo Tycoon and Lego Jurassic World I feel like I am getting a little of the hang of it. Then I tried the free trial of Overwatch last weekend and learned that I still have quite a ways to go. I don't think I'll ever be terribly good at FPS or platform-jumping games, but I have been pleasantly surprised at my adaptability.
