This is hard to admit but I suck at fighting games. For the time that I have put into them and the level I am at I have to be the worst player by far. The thing is I am generally very good at other things I do. I have played professional Magic cards, I usually win at Poker with my friends. I was one of the best baseball players in the club as a kid, and got good grades. The only thing in my life I was never good at no matter how hard I tried was Soccer. Now that I have admitted to myself I am plateauing at a very low level with fighting games I am thinking about quiting for good. I am really good at other types of games like puzzles and RPG’s just not this. My brain can’t keep up with the match in real time while pressing buttons. I always am a step behind even my friends that don’t know anything about competitive play. I can to things like complete the Marvel trials and understand resets, overheads, mind games and I can see them watching a match. I just cant apply them during a match no matter how hard I try. When I practice it’s for hours at a time, and have a small notebook of tricks. So I am trying pretty hard and have been for about 7 years now on and off with different fighting games.
I have bought fightsticks, different 2d, 3d games in the past and every time its the same thing. Usually I still have fun but right now I am not having fun playing them anymore and I just want some honest advise from the best place I know to get it. I know I can’t be good at everything but I am so bad its frustrating when I try so hard.
Anyway if you read that all thank you. I don’t really know where to get advise from so I would like to hear what anyone has to say. I know its just a hobby but I am feeling really down about it right now.
