I’ve played SSF4 quite a lot the past year, accumulating about 9,000 online ranked games overall, but I’m not sure why anymore. I find that after playing this game I’m quite tense and uneasy afterwards, as if I’ve been through a rigorous exam. I find that when I win online I think to myself, “ok got the win, next”. Whereas when I lose I just lose my mind with anger and frustration. I hate losing more than I like winning, and I’m just not sure if I should bother playing any more; I find that this game gets me stressed, which is the very opposite purpose of a video game!
Does any one else feel like this at all? I feel like you can’t be good at this game unless you basically sacrifice your life for it and I’m not sure if the stress is worth it any more.
