I've always been naturally good at any game I play, especially FPS games and strategy games.

I'll never be the best, but I could play with anyone and still hold my own. I just understand games on a certain level.

That being said. There are thousands and thousands of gamers much better than I will ever be.

The difference between me and others players is I know I'm not the best and will never be, but I'm still usually near top in games and I'm cool with that, because I can still do good and have fun.

Sometimes when you get "too" into a game it becomes work and not fun when you can't do as awesome as you did the last game.

I was good at games when I was 5 though so it's always been that way. There will always be somebody better than me though.

I consider myself a good player only if I regularly score the most points on my team. At the end of a Halo online match, I look at the score board and I'm usually the 1st or 2nd on the list with the most kills.
That's when I consider myself a good player. It's when you can consistently show that you succeed at a game more than everyone else.
That's my opinion at least.

that and, T-bagging most of the opposing team.

if you can T-bag then you know your a good player

If you're able to play it casually and still do very well.

All I know is, the babies quitting out of every domination game because the opposing team is up slightly in order to protect their precious k/d are NOT good. It's getting ridiculous, and I really hope next gen has more penalties for constant quitters.

I'm glad he points out one can be a successful team player and help your team win without being at the top of the board.

Just got done playing some racists guys on live that thought they were good because they just camped power weapons and couldnt even face me in a 1v1 fight without outter assistance.

Another way to know that your good is when you can when in a 1v1 with fair weapons or beat someone who has the obvious advantage with a weaker or starter weapon.

Example: In my match with the racists I beat there designated Boomshot guy with a simple gnasher and open space. Immediately after doing this His friend got stiff knees and stayed away from me.
