Any games really that wont frustrate you.Effect 1 is good. An FPS is fine too, but I wouldn't play online right way, youll probably just get frustrated.

Doom 2

start simple with a game that only features sideways aiming and move up from there.

I believe the game I learned on was Unreal.

You could always train on Unreal Tournament. You'll learn fast.

This is pretty much the only correct answer for mouse training.

UT2004 is still the pinnacle of the genre as far as I'm concerned. Avoid UT3, it was a dumbed-down console game.

I'd say go buy portal and play that with mouse and keyboard... it's very casual so you won't get too frustrated at not being good with it but you'll have plenty of opportunities to get used to mouse and keyboard with portal (especially when you fly through a portal and have to reorient yourself).

HL2 would also be good... any single player FPS would be good...Just play and practice and eventually you'll get good at it.

Play a game you're used to but the console version is plagued with auto aim. GTA series is a prime example. Instead of the game auto aiming to enemies; actually do the aiming yourself.

Quake Live, completely free and prob the best mouse practice for aiming.

For getting used to wasd movement- any first person game.

For getting accustomed to using alternate keys like #'s & the surrounding keys - Diablo 3.

Just don't play anything multiplayer until you get the hang of it, unless you want to be demoralized.
