Strategy and skill based maybe

Bayonetta or Virtua Fighter 5 are the most skill based game I have ever played

What skill though? Title doesn't even make sense?

malandra2771d ago

the most skill based games are still Pacman and Tetris

Skill based game for tournament play.

yoostar2 takes more skill to be an awesome actor. I don't know of anyone who has perfected it yet.

SC2 is a just a spamfest. But a fun spam fest.

Must be Bronze level, then.

Platinum in 2v2. Gold in 1v1.

Not trying to sound elitest or anything, but don't talk about things like that until you hit diamond level, which is actually much easier than it sounds. At gold level, people are still piling resources in the thousands late-game or only using one hit or miss strategy in every matchup.

Actually, strategy doesn't matter at all at that level. It's the mechanics, especially macro, that does. You can easily 4 Gate your way into Diamond, as long as your macro stays perfect.

Some may say killzone 2 is more skill based since many people raged quit because it was to hard or some may say Gears takes skill because of the massive amount of bullets it takes to kill someone or COD because you die super fast.

I do believe that starcraft 2 takes skill but a different type of skill.

CounterStrike, TeamFortress and Quake took skill as far as shooters go. Can probably throw in Wolfenstien and Tribes as well.

Starcraft has a fair balance of strategy and quick-hands. It is debatable if it is the most skill based game, but it probably is up there.
