Forums - Gaming Discussion - What Game Are You Best At?

Although I've played my fair share of traditional turn-based jpg's in my day, I'd be lying to myself if I said if that genre of games required skill.
I will also make the obvious argument that the more you play a game, the better you get at it. In my case it was games I played a lot and got good at unintentionally. As a matter of fact, any game I tried to get intentionally "good" at never saw success. Street Fighter is a good example. As much as I played SFIV, I could never compete with the pros.

My list:
Mega Man X series: I played them so much I could sometimes finish them without taking damage
.
Resident Evil 2 & 3 for PS1: If youtube was a thing back in the day I would probably be a top speed runner

Dance Dance Revolution: I never realized how good I was until I was at a mall late 2000's with a few of my siblings and my nephews. My nephews quartered-up on a DDR arcade machine, and I made jaws drop that day. Truth be told, I used DDR to stay fit as I was bit chubby and out of shape. I hated exercising but loved video games. I figured if it was a game I wouldn't get bored. DDR was a lifestyle until about 2013. Would play it 2 hours each night before bed. I got extremely good because I played it religiously for about 5 years. It was the healthiest 5 years of my life.

MGSIV: I completed the game so many times that I could effortlessly finish the game without a single kill in under 2 hours. The big mama motorcycle level was the only thing that truly challenged me.

I like this thread.

I was a monster at Gears 1 back in the day. 1v4's were quite doable if the other team wasn't up to scratch.



Super Smash Bros. Still in the top 1%. But I wouldn't consider myself a pro. That's the job of the 0.01%.



Before the internet, I was the single greatest Street Fighter 2 player on the planet. Boy am I humbled, now!



mZuzek loves Smeags. 😢

Hmmm, I would have to say Star Wars Battlefront 2 currently, specifically the Heroes vs Villains mode. I'm #1 on the leaderboard in like 50% of the matches I play, and at least #3 in like 90% of matches.

I'm also pretty good at Dead By Daylight, I got both my killer and survivor up to rank 1 on some previous seasons.

In the past I was quite good at Halo SWAT mode, making it up to the 2nd highest rank tier in Halo 5 at one point, though I haven't played Halo 5 in a couple of years, hopefully most of my accumulated skill will come back to me when Halo Infinite releases.

Fighting games in general (outside Smash). Consider myself top tier Tekken and Street Fighter player (not Pro level), can definitely hold my own.

I'm sure I did, but I never really followed the DOTA scene after that so I dont know. I do know I played some of the absolute best players in the world in BW and WC3 for many years though. I practiced a lot with AT-Intox for instance the months before he Won CPL, Elky, Saft, MadFrog, Everlast and many others of the best BW/Early WC3 players aswell.

Any of these Dota names bring back memories? https://www.dotahaven.com/en/guide/the-10-best-dota-players-of-all-time-in-the-west/

I'm a big fan of the Dota 2 pro scene, especially KuroKy.

Hmm sorry. I cant remember much from my dota days at all, I practically didnt play any Dota 2 and after 2006 or so I was fully focused on 1on1 and 2on2.. I might have played S4, I have heard from a friend that we did play someone from Alliance at some point. But no names. Dota was always the sidetrack compared to regular WC3.



The game I'm best at is probably Donkey Kong Country. I'm not a speedrunner but I have taken part in a few races and won them fairly easily. I can also 101% it pretty easily and have challenged myself to complete it without being hit, or without hitting enemies at other times. I feel like playing it now and seeing how quickly I can go through all levels just straight away without practice.

Obviously I won't be anywhere near the best in the world though.

Casual run time for all levels: 57:16 that puts me at place 144 on Speedrun.com, I wonder if I could crack the top 100 if I practice? I am using a PAL cart so that will be holding me back, I bet switching to NTSC would throw me off. I wonder if my PC can handle Higan?

Virtua Fighter 3, by a mile.

I'm also pretty good on NiGHTS Into Dreams.



I want to say Grand Theft Auto V because I've netted over 3,300 hours on it, but I'm not the best at it. I suck badly at PvP, mostly grinding PvE stuff and trying to learn the mechanics.

I would say I'm very proficient on the Hitman games, but I'd be lying. Except for Hitman: Codename 47 and Hitman GO , I've played them all. It's a series I never get tired of playing.

I'd say a game I'm the best in would be Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker. Sure, mechanically it's not that impressive since it's from the PSP, but I've spent inhuman amount of hours on it, even going as far as playing it on PS Now. I know some mechanics to take advantage of the farming, platinumed it and played all of the missions available. If that doesn't make me good on that game, I don't know what is.
