As far as skill goes in shooters it might be worth considering the transfer of the various skills . For example rocket jumping as a skill only really applies to games with rockets in it... My point is CS is popular because it relies on some pretty generic skills, aim with hitscan weapons, team communication and knowing the level - it doesn't have much more to it than that, games like tribes / desert combat are much more specialised, being an ace dc chopper pilot won't help you to ski.
