PC game story. I bought some helicopter simulation for cheap. Was it "Apache/Havok" or summat, I dont remember. Not that important.
It came, like all proper flight simulators, with an assload of keymappings and this cardboard thing which shows a summary of those.
The game was already loaded, and the helicopter was sitting on the landing strip. I grabbed the manual and the cardboard thingy and started reading. I just wanted to get some basics down before trying anything. You know, like, how to turn on the engines, how to set their RPM, anything useful really that would keep me in the air without horribly crashing right away.
A friend of mine was sitting next to me and said "What the fuck are you doing? Push some buttons already." To which I replied "Dude, that's supposed to be a simulator, those are complex you can't just...."
He didnt even wait for me to finish the sentence and just grabs the keyboard and starts to hit the top row, one by one. QWERT... and so on and so forth.
Suddenly the windscreen wiper (or however you call them on a helicopter) came on. wheeeeek-a-wheeeek-a-wheeeeka.
It felt a bit like a movie in which two stoners try to steal a military helicopter, and we just burst out in laughter.
