But it took me like a year to complete the campaign, and even then I had to use cheats here and there, and if I try to play online, I lose like 9 out of 10 matches, and if I win, it's probably 'cause my team-mates are great and my opponents are just as bad as me.
I'm generally not very good at very high-level action and fighting games that require constant combo-chains and such. I'm also not very good at real-time strategy; I fare much better with turn-based.

RTS games are the only games where I use speed-up and god mode cheat so yeah, I really suck at it no matter how much I practice. (Warcraft, Starcraft, Rise of Legends) I think the only RTS that I didn't use a cheat is Battle Realms because it has a very basic interface.
FPS on consoles.
I definitely suck at those unless I'm playing on the PC. The last FPS I played on a console is Syphon Filter on the PS1. Yeah, that was a long time ago and very traumatizing for me.
I've never been all that good at real time strategy games or fighting games. I've always been good against friends and the like but once I step online against people who play them religiously it's a whole different matter. It's to be expected considering how rarely I play them I guess.
While I do enjoy a good FPS game... not that I am looking forward to... what is it? Call of Duty 78? But I suck at any FPS game. I used to play a free FPS and I enjoyed it but I just sucked. But yeah. I do enjoy a good FPS game I just suck at them big time.
RTS. My only experience with them really is Age of Empires. I could only play on it on the easier levels though... unless you know I made a custom map and made my place an island or was just lucky to get an island.
RTS/TBS - I would love to be good at them, but I'm terrible with micro and macromanaging. I still enjoy the games on occasion, but I always have to play the them on the easiest difficulty. And you can forget online play.
FPS - Once again, I would love to be good at them, but I like to play games to unwind. When I play an FPS, I end up more stressed than I did before playing the game. Usually, I quit within a few rounds, but I could probably get decent at them if I practiced.
Haku will say this:
"The haiku inspires passion,
though the method tires."
Fighting games like Street Fighter and Marvel Vs Capcom. I stink to high heaven at those games. (except Street Fighter II in the arcade) But those games are so fun and i wanna play em! But my god..im just mashing buttons and dont know what im doing. D:
A thousand eyes and one. Still watching... You can still PM me for the clan test!
I think with enough practice, anyone can get good at most genres of games. Except maybe fighting games, first-person shooters, and rhythm games. Some people just can't get good at those types of games no matter how hard they try.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl kind of ruined fighting games for me. I was so used to the incredibly simple mechanics of a party "fighting" game, that I had sort of lost my other fighting game skills (Blaz Blue, Street Fighter, Marvel v Capcom, etc.) which require, well, a lot more skill to play. I never really recovered since.
