What games did you become really good at?
after Game environments that left a lasting impression i realised that gta 3 was a game i wasn't actually that good at to begin with but became really good at after some time, not necessarily in terms of reaction speed or hand-eye coordination but in approach to the game
as example i used to be hopeless at the early mission 'turismo' where you were to race against sports cars. The idea is to get the one sports car in portland and race - but i'd spin out if i hit anything making it near impossible to catch up, i just couldn't drive well enough over the course. then i got a patriot (humvee-a-like) and instead of stopping at the marker i just crashed through the starting line - sending the other drivers off in all directions (which also starts the race!) and then leading in the not so fast but actually ok patriot all the way. It's gta after all so why not!
well, enough GTA, i also became somewhat better at duke3d, doom and a number of rts games over time but never really that good, just enough to complete
how about you - the games you became really good at?
