Cmon, be honest. 
 
well you dont have to i guess

#3 Posted by SgtGrumbles (1024 posts) -

I just spent a few hours driving at the same piece of wall in Trials so I have a pretty low opinion of my skill level right now...

@ModerateViolence: is persistence a skill or a virtue? 
 
im not really sure
#5 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19339 posts) -

Above average at most competitive multiplayer games. I can be pretty bad when it comes to single player game puzzles and I'm not very good at Rockstar games, dying in them a lot.

yeah this probably shouldn't have been a poll. then again, polls are fun! 
 
EDIT: i mean like its a pretty complicated question; everyone has games they are good at and ones they suck at. maybe this is more useful as a barometer of self-esteem or something

Depends on the game, but I don't play enough to be the B35T 1N W0RLD. But if I love a game I'll play it well.

I am probably not the most naturally gifted video game player but there are a few games (the games that require planning and strategery) that I am probably better at than most but I am still pretty average when dumped into a new situation. In saying that I will stick with a game until I become good at it. For example, in Trials Evolution, I am trying to get a gold medal on all the tracks. For the most part, I can do so with a little practice on the course but can few times obtain a gold on the first run.

Confirming that I am the best at video games.

I'll be honest...

not really. I'm okay at games. i play games to have fun. I could care less about my position on a leader board

#13 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

Yeah I'm pretty good at most games, my coordination and reflexes are pretty decent so I rarely outright suck.

BEST IN THE WOOOORLD!! /cmpunk

Nah, not really. I can be good. I've been exceptionally good at various games in the past, but I think now most of the time I just don't care enough to be good.

So I'm going to say "Yes" with the caveat that I rarely care enough to be good.

[NOSCOPEXXXMW3][MLG420LINKINPARK][BIGSMOKEYHEADSHOT999]? Is that you?

#20 Posted by WMWA (1162 posts) -

Honestly probably not really. I can beat most any game and I'm the best out of my friends. But competitively? Nah. I'm just kinda decent at all games, but excel at none. Unless I put in a crazy amount of time into it. But I feel like everyone is good at any one game of they play the fuck out of it

#21 Posted by matthias2437 (985 posts) -

It depends on the game. I would go as far as to say that I am generally very good at RPGs. Every RPG I have played in the last 2 years I have played on the hardest difficulty. I also was in platinum league in Starcraft 2 but when it comes to shooters I am complete shit.

#22 Posted by DefaultProphet (459 posts) -

Better than average, but not dedicated enough to be crazy awesome.

#23 Posted by Death_Unicorn (2838 posts) -

I'm the best.

Because hubris.

Or so I think... I did kill a dude who looked at me funny and married his former wife.

Uh oh.

#27 Posted by upwarDBound (654 posts) -

Good enough to complete nearly any game on normal difficulty. I could probably beat harder difficulties on many games but I rarely bother.

Competitively I would say I'm squarely average. I don't play online much but when I do I don't do absolutely terribly in most games. I'm best at fighters and FPS and worst at RTS.

#28 Posted by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG (4308 posts) -

Im a bit above average when it comes to multiplayer shooters but then Im kinda just alright at vidya games

#29 Posted by Daveyo520 (6752 posts) -

Nope

#30 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19339 posts) -

Before I started getting into StarCraft II, I probably would have said the genre I perform the worst at is RTS games however because I stuck with it, I managed to get into diamond league. I think if anyone truly wants to get better at a competitive game, they can do so; it just requires the time commitment.

#31 Edited by JasonR86 (9706 posts) -

Where are the options for 'it depends...' and 'who fucking cares about how good you are at games'?

#32 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

I'm pretty good at...Tetris. And at one point I was good at ResE4.

No.

#33 Posted by TobbRobb (4646 posts) -

I usually start better than average, but I have a really slow curve afterwards. Mostly because I don't spend nearly as much time on a single game as some people do. I just don't really care enough.

#34 Posted by Dalai (7029 posts) -

Not sure. I never played a video game before.

#35 Posted by sociald1077 (263 posts) -

I suck at most competitive games. I can get stuck on a puzzle in a Lego game. I have lost to the AI in numerous RTS games. I can't really do much beyond Hard difficulty on Rock Band. I can tank well enough in WoW.

Honestly, I'm probably not that good a gamer. But its not going to stop me from playing them :D

#36 Posted by hmmisee (156 posts) -

I think I am alight, I use cheats and walkthroughs for most single-player games, I always achieve above a 1.1 ratio in multi-player games. I'm not competitive but I have fun :)

#37 Posted by Dethfish (3661 posts) -

I'm pretty good at games. I try to at least be above average at most games I play. That probably makes me an asshole or something but whatever. There are a couple games I suck at but still enjoy playing, like SC2 and pretty much any fighting game.

#38 Posted by spartanlolz92 (511 posts) -

halo i used to wreck at my skills have atrophied since then though.

its just i cant find any really good competitve fpses i hate cod ever since 4. and i like tf2 but alas the thrill is gone

well i assume leaderboards are popular for a reason, but you're right, it doesn't matter at all in the grand scheme of things. 
 
congrats on being right

The bestest.

#41 Posted by csl316 (8665 posts) -

Started playing at 5, so 21 years later I know a thing or two. Though I'll admit, I much prefer beating single player games on hard over the course of a month than going online regularly because I just don't have the time anymore to keep up.

#42 Posted by asian_pride (1654 posts) -

Hell naw.

#43 Posted by MegaLombax (390 posts) -

First gaming experience was an isometric game involving a big pixelated lizard and gorilla trying to kill each other and a game called Sidewinder...I guess all those years of gaming made me somewhat adept at gaming. Not good at sports games though...

#44 Posted by Moloney (56 posts) -

I'm okay. Probably terrible at competitie multiplayer though. I rarely play online.

#45 Edited by whyareyoucrouchingspock (975 posts) -

Usually after every Shogun 2 multiplayer game, team mates are thanking me for advising them in how to win. This is because I am very skilled.

As you can see in this video 11: 33, this is not just the greatest flank in a video game, it is probably the greatest flank in history. His gatlin gun becomes distracted by horses and I totally destroy him with my skills.

#46 Posted by Subject2Change (2966 posts) -

Great at PC Shooters, was quite competitive back in early 2000's. Not anymore and probably significantly worse in my older age.

#47 Edited by SeanFoster (868 posts) -

I'm alright, I can beat most games on hard but I don't have the patience for a lot of new game+ style challenges, like the Dark World in Super Meat Boy or Dead Space 2 with only 2 saves. If I played Starcraft I'd be upper tier Bronze or low level SIlver.

#48 Posted by wemibelec90 (1662 posts) -

Games rarely stump me in singleplayer and I tend to be decent in most multiplayer games. Any RTS or fighting games are where I start to suck.

I tend to not like to stick to one game for very long, so I rarely get extremely good on one game. Instead, I'm a little above average on a wide number of them.

#49 Posted by Gamer_152 (14078 posts) -

I'd guess above average, but for the amount of time I put in, I don't think I'm that good. I can kick ass at Tetris, hold my own in a game of Halo, get through most games on normal mode without too much of a fuss, but playing particularly difficult games or going up against people in most very competitive game environments, I usually fall down.
