I really SUCK at games.

Except for games I really like, like-... I got to wave 40 of Bloody Palace in Devil May Cry 4 which is pretty boss, and I've beat half the Meat Boy dark worlds before I got bored and played something else.

But in a regular shooter I'm just a moron. Same with fighting games.

I'll rock your world in SMNC and BF3, but never invite me into your high level PvP guild in Guild Wars.

I like to think I'm good at playing video games, but to be honest I'm not very good at first person shooters, RTSes, or anything strategy based.

no, no i'm not. from visiting these boards and reading comments and such i would tend to think in in the bottom 10% or so in skill level amongst GBers in most genres.

I can wreck shit in UMK3 online. It's a damn shame the entire fighting game community has moved on.

There's certain genres I'm really good with. I'm pretty good at 3D Mario and Zelda games. I'm really brad at, say, Uncharted or Halo, but I still love playing them. The more I die in an instance of combat, the more I enjoy winning. To a point.

It depends, I would say I'm really good at shooters. Obviously not the tip top, but considering me and my friends play shooters a shit ton and are always on top of most games I would consider myself really good at them. For most other games I would say I'm above average (if the GB guys skill is any indication of average). For instance, I am no pro at Trials by any means, but I was still able to beat all the extreme levels and 100% everything else so yeah. I would say I am above average at most games, and really really good at shooters.

When I'm by myself, I become one with the game. When trying to play with other people in the room, I'm still alright, but I lose focus. Poor decisions are usually made.

Multiplayer stuff really is beyond me, although I like to try every now and then.

I'd say good enough to learn the basics of a game fairly quickly and to break / exploit some mechanics... And to see how much time and effort it would take to get really good.

F that.

I play games for fun. Which is code for I suck at games. Although I picked not really, because I play a mean Mario Kart 64.

I pick up a basic to moderate level of proficiency very quickly, but I never get beyond that. I'm better at shooters than other genres. I like strategy games more, but I just can't compete in them, so I don't play much of them in multiplayer. I am the worst at fighting games. I'm pretty good, but not spectacular at platformers.

Goodness no, absolutely not. I am at best, adequate. I manage to get through RPGs by over leveling and everything else takes me 25% longer to finish because I die so often. I don't even bother with puzzle games since I have trouble with the Jumble. I am sincerely excited to win a bronze in any racing game. I don't play online because I feel all I do is provide easy kills for every player above me. I have mastered nothing above mindless button-mashing in fighting games. I am not a worthwhile opponent to even the CPU.

But, it's fun so I play anyway.

Depends on the genre. Character action games like DMC and Ninja Gaiden? Yeah for sure. Getting high level top 100 scores on those games is fairly easy for me. Shooters I'm decent at and can have my moments but I'm not very consistent in performance. Fighting games however I am AWFUL at as well as RTS and sports games.

Yeah I would say I am good, better than most, but I don't take shooters very seriously so sometimes I end up dying a lot because I'm having fun but I think I'm good.

The only games I am actually good at are FPS's. Not something i'm particularly proud of, it got at its darkest in the heyday of Cod2 and Cod4. I would say poor at driving games, average at everything else.

I'm decent at videogames. I can play quite a few of them on higher difficulties. I am also bad at some types of videogames (RTS/turn based strategy for me personally), but on the whole the games I play most I'm pretty decent at.

I love challenging games. It is assumed that they require skill. Does this make me good at games? I think so.

I wouldn't say i'm good at games, I'd say i'm competent. I just play the occasional game to relax.

I'm really not, especially when playing online. That's the main reason why I shy away from multiplayer and stick to good single-player campaigns. I am good at a few arcade sports titles, like NBA Jam and NFL Blitz, and a lot of 2D and 3D platformers.

I'm very good at shoot 'em ups. Got addicted to Ikaruga for quite some time. But I can't hang with some of the badasses online. I'm no better than average at most other competitive games.

I at least know how the fatigue meter works in Shadow of the Colossus without reading the manual (sorry Brad :P) and can figure out most puzzles I come across in games including FEZ recently on my own (all but the obvious puzzles that gave everyone a hard time). As for skill I'm a bit inconsistent but overall I'd say above average. Dota 2 is a rare game where I still can't for the life of me win a game yet but at least I don't contribute highly to the team's death count for what it's worth hehe.

Good? I don't know. I usually play most games on hard but I'm not above busting down the difficulty on a frustrating fight. I don't play online so I've yet to test my skill against other humans, which I suppose would be the true mark of one's skill, no? I'm a persistent SOB if nothing else. I may drop the difficulty down on occasion, but usually I'll define insanity and play a level over and over again until I beat it. Dogged determination over skill I reckon.

I can, of course, stomp just the average person at games. However, I find I can't really keep up with people who play games just as much or more than myself.

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...

The fourth extreme track is where I gave up. That first part of it took everything out of me.

Depends on what I'm playing. Halo multiplayer? I'm generally fantastic. Battlefield 1943/BC2? I have my moments but am generally just "OK". Counter Strike? I'm happy to get a kill every now and then. Strategy games? Psh, I'm beaten before I get started.

As for single player games, I'm usually good at them but I don't often play them for challenge so I don't really get better at them.

If we consider the bomb squads level of performance in QLs as the norm, then I'm pretty good.

Compared to anyone else, I couldn't really say as I don't play many leaderboard games.

If I invest time in game I usually reach a level above average for sure. I'm in college so I still have time to do that for most games.

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

not disagreeing with this one

I just soloed Dukes Archives at level 38 so I'm really good at games like dark souls, now single player shooters, im also really good at, but multiplayer shooters im usually dead within 10-20 seconds if not less.
