I Suck At Gaming (And That’s OK)

'Hi, I’m Caitlin, and I suck at gaming. By ‘suck’ I mean nearly every game I play that has a difficulty slider is set at ‘easy’ or ‘normal’ (at best) and I die pretty much every ten minutes on games without said difficulty sliders... But you know what? That’s just fine' writes Caitlin Blanchard. (PC, Portal 2, PS2, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

You have a triple monitor, wheel/pedal, and driving chair set-up!

Shut up about sucking and enjoy that nice set-up.

(P.S. they have brackets to hold those monitors together better)

Of course it's ok. Just as long as you have fun.

It's ok to suck at games, but it's not ok to be one of those guys that sucks at games, dies every 20 seconds in an online match and does nothing but bitch and moan and blame everything and everyone but themselves.

That's great. Thanks for sharing that valuable information.
I can relate. I'm not much good at this either. Based on positions I've reached on the Tetris weekly leaderboards, I'm average, bordering on decent.

I suck too, but I have fun and that's what's important. Only game I've ever beat on the hardest difficulty is arkham asylum.

nothing wrong with sucking at games, i suck at some of them. but games HAVE gotten easier. i don't know if it has something to do with plot structure or production values but a lot of games seem reluctant to break immersion by killing you relentlessly (btw demon's and dark souls sidestepped this issue FLAWLESSLY by making your death part of the gameplay). who wants to play the same level 15 times in uncharted? it pulls you out of the narrative and that goes against the series' strengths. so this could be a reason for the "dumbing down", trying to keep a sense of narrative momentum. back in nes times they could throw ghosts and goblins at you because the story was just "satan took the princess, go die a thousand times".
