Always wanted to ask others about their experiences with this kind of thing.

I mean, we've all ragequitted and we've all slogged through the difficult. But are there any games/genres/etc. you've enjoyed regardless of not getting the hang of playing?




Examples for me: Love the Ace Attorney series. The characters, the stories, but man do I feel stupid about some of my logic puzzle ability. lol

Also rhythm games. Love Taiko Drummaster, and I'd even say I'm decent at it. (Mainly because it's only two inputs.) But give me something with various directional/button inputs in the same genre, and my brain just lags.

Any Smash Bros. game.
The bar to be considered good at those seems higher than most games

It's like this thread was made with my relationship with fighting games in mind. I love them, but they don't love me. They beat me up and take my lunch money, and I keep coming back to them.

I stopped even trying to play online years ago. But I still enjoy them. Even the somewhat technical aspects of them. I like that they're complicated; I like that you basically have to learn a whole new language just to understand what's happening in them; I like the feeling I get when the planets align and I actually do something cool.

I suppose I love neat character designs most of all. Fighting game characters have lots of great little design quirks in their animations. There's so much creativity in them.

Also, while I did finish it, I suppose I never really got good at Sekiro the way I did at Souls. But damn, is it satisfying to play.

Probably Apex for me, I enjoy it but I suck at it. Can't play it for too long either cause I can get a headache from playing sometimes but alas.

Yeah I’d add Apex to my list too, I enjoy it but I don’t contribute much

Street Fighter 3rd Strike. any fighting game could be here but 3S is my favorite and I've spent countless hours watching tournament footage, but I'm just not good at fighting games no matter how much I enjoy them

TECHNICALLY Overwatch but I was pretty damn good for my rank, outplaying the average DPS player and being a fairly solid tank and healer. Nonethless as I was starting to reach gold rank regularly my internet starting to go bad and I was getting 300 ms ping.

I was good for rank but in the grand scheme a pretty shit player if the ranking system is any indication.

Pretty much any shooter I play. Namely Rainbow Six Siege though I haven't played that in a while.

That one should have been at the top followed by the quote "The first of many!" - swoosh
To be frank WA and WWP are quite easy solo but the moment you go online some kid (now a 30 years old hairy kid) does that rope acrobatics shit and I just accept defeat and quit :catcry

Worms 3D and 4 however... Piss easy.

Devil May Cry, Bayonetta and the like, great games but I absolutely suck at them.
