I have a confession. i suck at Rock Band. like really bad. its pathetic. ive been playing it for a few years now and i cant make it off the easy difficulty. dont get me wrong. i enjoy playing it.it's sooo much fun. i just suck terribly at it.hell,somtimes i even have a hard time on easy! yet i can kick ass at any mega man game. im a pro at call of duty,i Never give up at dark souls. yet,for some stupid reason. i suck at playing rock band. so fellow bombers,what games do you suck at yet still love to play?

#2 Posted by DarthOrange (3866 posts) -

Gran Turismo 5. I have never won a race online but damn it all to hell if that game isn't some good old fashion car lovin' fun!

#3 Posted by ShaggE (6543 posts) -

Rock Band as well. I play Medium/Hard, but I'm still nowhere near good. (especially on drums, where I *am* stuck on easy... I partially blame it on the portable drum kit's weird setup, but it's still mostly me)

Counterstrike was like that for me when I was a youth. Now I'm pretty good at Arms Race despite not playing CS in like a decade, and I kind of miss being terrible at it, but it still gives me the jitters because its so intense. Love it.

I dunno any game I really suck at though... Probably ArmA 2? But then half of that is because I'm playing at about 15FPS.

#5 Posted by Yummylee (22036 posts) -

I played a lot of Gears of War 3 competitive despite being kinda crappy at it.

#6 Posted by Zekhariah (697 posts) -

Counterstrike: Global Offensive (lately).

On a more overall basis it would have to be everything Nintendo has ever made. My lack of timing, speed, or precision control.

#7 Posted by krazy_kyle (715 posts) -

Any RTS game or Mortal Kombat.

#8 Posted by Deadmanforking (578 posts) -

Any fighting game.

#9 Posted by YetiAntics (1490 posts) -

Soul Calibur 5.

I fucking suck at the game and would NEVER attempt to play anyone online or off. But I come back for the customization.

#10 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3064 posts) -

Mortal Kombat

#11 Posted by DoctorDanger99 (686 posts) -

@Deadmanforking: i feel ya on this. im far from terrible yet im a button masher at heart. i still have butt loads of fun though.

#12 Posted by Jrinswand (1710 posts) -

Right now, League of Legends. I'm fucking terrible. Or maybe I'm not really that bad, but I never win.

#13 Posted by casper_ (907 posts) -

guilty gear

#14 Posted by TobbRobb (4730 posts) -

Any Street Fighter/DoA or Starcraft. They just require me to be faster than I am. But I'm in love with the meta game, enjoy watching streams or tournaments and I think They are all fun to play on a casual level.

I would say Mortal Kombat, but I'm actually halfway decent playing that. And the pro level play is less interesting. So meh.

#15 Posted by EternalHaV0C (69 posts) -

Dota 2. I'm so bad but for some reason I keep going back and playing.

#16 Edited by AckbarTheGreat (419 posts) -

Generally every first and third person shooter. I usually enjoy playing them, but I can never play online.

#17 Posted by Barrabas (326 posts) -

The entire Total War series. Every game I start I know I'm eventually going to lose, but I still find it fun seeing how long I can prolong my inevitable demise.

#18 Posted by Dixavd (1359 posts) -

Dark Souls: it is not just set out to penalise you for playing badly but I also constantly play badly - I have figured out a system to counter-act my inane shitty-ness at it but it still takes me hours and hours to progress (currently clocked around 300 hours and still haven't finished my first playthrough).

New Super Mario Bros. Wii - I am so horribly abysmal at this (it is the only game where a live system has constantly caused me to get proper game overs that make me have to start almost entire Worlds again - Damn that game. I have finished it but there is no way I will ever get all the Big Coins and play all the World 9 levels)

#19 Posted by TobbRobb (4730 posts) -

@Dixavd: Wait, what the hell are you doing to progress in Dark Souls? If that number is correct, you've taken more time for one playthrough then I have for.... 1,2,3,4,5,6? Duuuuuuude.

Agreed on Mario though. I don't know what the fuck is up with Mario games. I find Super Meat Boy way easier than anything Mario ever. I'm like, Mario handicapped.

#20 Posted by Zuldim (290 posts) -

Pretty much all Real-Time Strategy games. One of my favorite genres, but I'm awful at them.

#21 Posted by Slag (4603 posts) -

hah Fire Emblem games for me, I always end up trying to 100% those and never finishing as a result.

#22 Posted by Petiew (1353 posts) -

Blazblue Continuum Shift. Taokaka's combos are really fun to pull off, but i'll be damned if I can ever actually win a match. Doesn't help that no one is playing this version of the game now!

Well purely on how I play games I can probably inflate a game's average length by a factor of 3 times (especially RPGs) as I love to walk around and listen to what everyone says and mess check every inch of the world out simply getting myself lost in the world. But with Dark Souls, I have the problem in that it is just one of those games whose gameplay simply doesn't click with me - meaning I have to spend quite a lot of time grinding as I haven't seemed to grasp dodging and/or parrying well enough to play the game like a normal player. But then, with the Souls that I grind, I don't like the idea of specialising in games (I don't focus on PvP at all - in fact I try to avoid it at all costs) so my points spread is all over the place. That said however, I am pretty efficient at getting fantastic armour and weaponry that fits the way I play (and is how I have sort of overcome a lot of my bad game-play by simply having a fighting-style which sort of goes from it) I also horrible with in-world physics - especially traps whom kill me constantly (I end up having to leave a lot of treasure behind because I simply am horrendous and landing jumps etc... to get them; usually only traversing back later if I end up looking it up and it is an item I truly care about).

Funny though, I find that the bosses whom many people say are difficult end up being the ones which go pretty well for me, such as the Smough and Ornstein whom I pretty easily killed Smough first and then Ornstein (and it only took me about 3 times to solo, which for me with this game is incredibly good comparatively).

Just generally though, I am bad at the game. But it makes it even more rewarding for me when I do progress as it isn't simply a case of "yeah, I am progressing in a game meant to be harder than most to do", it is a case of "I am getting further despite how mind bogglingly bad I am at this game". If the world wasn't so varied and interesting for me with very cool dynamics of NPC-to-Player interaction and really interesting mechanics decisions, then I would have given up after 70 hours like I did with Skyrim. While I don't think I will finish it even though I am so close to the end (currently have the Seath to go and then the final area of the game to go) due to how little time I have now to continue to remember and keep on top of the mechanics so I am at least at the very low level of being able to progress even a tiny bit; but I have enjoyed my time with it and I will enjoy the little that I get to play from now on.

Persona 4 Arena. I suck online but I still have a blast playing it.

#25 Edited by GunstarRed (5293 posts) -

I love music rhythm games, but I'm rarely anything more than ok at them. I have never progressed past medium on a lot of the instruments in Rock Band. I recently played a bit of Uncharted 3 online and was awful, but It was still a bunch of fun.

@DoctorDanger99: endless space

#27 Posted by zombie2011 (4982 posts) -

Starcraft, but even then i played Fastest Maps with no rushing.

#28 Posted by JaredA (826 posts) -

DotA 2 for me. I'm freaking terrible at it (my teammates almost always assure me of that), but I just love to play it!

#29 Posted by MocBucket62 (1244 posts) -

Mortal Kombat (2011), I love the hell out of that game, but I can never win a game online nor can I perform proper combos.

#30 Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials (2411 posts) -

Mortal Kombat '11. It's my strongest fighter, but that's saying very little.

I also suck at the management elements of The Sims, but I consider myself pretty good at building houses, which is all I do.

#31 Posted by TheHumanDove (2523 posts) -

Battlefield games. I die all the fucking time. ALL the time. But it's kind of cool because I just feel like I'm some brainless grunt in a huge war, and my death is insignificant. Also knowing that whoever killed me probably feels like some warzone badass makes it all seem ok

#32 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2479 posts) -

Awesomenauts: I'm way too reckless and just charge to my death.

Naruto Storm Generations: Played 10 online matches, lost 10 online matches.

Online
#33 Posted by Iodine (549 posts) -

Online RTS's against rando's (and most of my friends). The stuff I love about a starcraft or any of the other RTS's I love is taking the time to savor the moment and stuff, and I also suck at micro, so yeah.....

Dragon Age: Origins

#34 Posted by Dimsey (960 posts) -

I'm pretty much the same with Rock Band. I've dabbled on Hard with varying degrees of success.

But ultimately can't get that extra fret down. Still love the game though.

And I guess most multiplayer shooters count.

I ain't great at Call of Duty but I still like playing it.

I totally suck at Quake, but it's still awesome.

I dunno. I probably suck at most games frankly.

#35 Posted by almolo (3 posts) -

Dwarf Fortress

I really want to understand it but... Dwarf Fortress

#36 Edited by ManU_Fan10ne (662 posts) -

COD, im sooo bad at that game.

Edit: also fighting games, except all the Smash Bros, i can manage in those, especially when i play with friends. (Marth ftw!!)

#37 Posted by Irvandus (2881 posts) -

Persona 4 Arena

Every RTS

Mario

#38 Posted by Elyk247 (369 posts) -

Mortal Kombat. I think it's just the people you play online are just way too good. I play the old SNES and Genesis versions all the time, but never have problems.

Halo, Gears of War, Street Fighter. I get hype on games, but by the time I go play something else and come back, I just get crushed.

#39 Posted by Encephalon (1282 posts) -

RTS. I just love building a wicked cool base and accruing a ton of dudes, but that's rarely the way to win.

#40 Posted by Shidira (10 posts) -

I absolutely love strategy games, but as for pvp in strategy games, I suck terribly. I usually just play for the solo and vs friends.

#41 Posted by BaneFireLord (2949 posts) -

Civilization games. I can count on one hand the number of times I've actually won a game (not counting "highest score when time runs out" as a proper win state), but damn if that series isn't fucking amazing all the same.

#42 Posted by ThePaleKing (613 posts) -

At the moment: PlanetSide 2. I totally suck at actually aiming at people, and shooting them and killing them, but I just love camping on a ledge near an enemy base and identifying hostile troops to help my team.

#43 Posted by Beadoy (18 posts) -

Company of Heroes and Persona 4 Arena.

#44 Posted by GoofyGoober (937 posts) -

Madden, love it but damn I suck at them. Also pretty much any fighting game online.

#45 Posted by nohthink (1223 posts) -

Street Fighter

#46 Posted by NapTimeSleeper (332 posts) -

Pretty much any fighting game. I love watching people who know how to play but I'm terrible at them.

#47 Posted by Grilledcheez (3952 posts) -

I don't really play unreal tournament much, but I sure do suck more than I thought...awesome game though!

#48 Posted by Sanity (1937 posts) -

Counter Strike

#49 Posted by Akrid (1356 posts) -

I think I kinda suck at Bayonetta. Normal gave me a lot of trouble, but despite that I went ahead and beat it on hard just because I love that game so goddamn much.

#50 Posted by huntad (1955 posts) -

I don't really suck at any games I keep playing. I usually devote enough time to them to get good at them if I wanna play them constantly.
