Let the record show that I've made it perfectly clear I'm not that great at most competitive videogames. There have been times....brief periods of time....where I thought there was a game I was good at. Then someone would come along and give me a swift and harsh reminder that when it comes to videogames I will always be drowning in mediocrity. Now with games that actually have a "ranking" (Halo 3, Overwatch, etc) there was always one thing I was good at: sitting right in the middle. I can never come close to the top but I'm also competent enough to stay out of the bottom.
I've accepted the fact that playing games as a career is out of the question for me. My skills combined with my age (30 is ancient in the competitive scene) leave me at a severe disadvantage. Combine that with intense competition anxiety and you have the perfect mixture for someone who will spend their days only playing games from the comfort of their living room.
Luckily we have friends who are good at games and make an effort to play them at a competitive level. Sometimes even attending that funny thing called a tournament. Want to hear us talk with our friend Ken about fighting games and fighting game tournaments for an hour?
You're in luck.
