Re: What games did you become really good at?

in Milliways
I was actually big on StarSiege (the mecha one, not Tribes). I got to know the weapons so well that I often was able to leg opponents before they got a shot off. I was also pretty good at MechWarrior 3 (are you seeing a pattern here?). Granted, these were never massive competitions but I have fond …
