I started up Tetris Attack rather randomly and as I play I think about how I never been able to get better. How I don't think my brain can do it. To be able to think ahead, plan ahead and see all around me and be able to pull off chains and combos. Only time I make chains is just by luck mostly. And even as I look at the tutorial on how to make them, I can't even see them there. Well I can but after awhile and mostly because the black blocks make it easy to see. But when there are no black blocks to put focus just yeah I cannot see how to make a chain. ( The AI in that game is insane. They pull off x7 chains within the first 10 seconds and keep hitting hard on Super Hard mode ).
Sure it's a puzzle game but I think shows my limitation in games. How I can only get so good and can't get any better. This is one of those harder games I suppose and MAYBE I just haven't given it enough time to get any better but... still. When it comes to any game... racing, shooter, fighting, platform and all that... I can only get so good while others get better than me. I don't know if it's because I never spend enough time with a game, as the most I seem to spend is about a month with a game before I lose the mood, and the total time made up of that month is maybe about 3 hours a day if at all, as some days I don't play.
Anyway I notice that these days when I play games, even just single player ( I don't even play multiplayer though I want to. I just am always afraid to get online and play, dunno why. Fear of sucking I guess. Even though once I do get in it then I have fun. And maybe lack of friends to play such game with like Uncharted 3 but yeah... ), how I notice I play games these days and want to be good at them. To either memorize the map layout of a game such as Castlevania the 2D games or GTA though I don't think I can ever memorize GTA, always relying on the minimap. To be better skilled at a game and all that. But I guess I never spend enough time for any of that on a game before stopping for months or a year and having to relearn everything.
Tell me about your experiences:
So I dunno just another random though journal. Wonder if those of you who play Tetris Attack and are good can give any tips or your experience on how you learned to be good at it, how long it took and all that.
As well as your experiences with ANY game. Be it single player or multiplayer, trying to get better and why you wanted to get better.
Did you just want to be able and win more often in a multiplayer game? Or did you want to be able and know you could be good in a game when you wanted to be in a single player game or otherwise? To where you didn't care about winning and just wanted to have fun, but know you can be good when you have to be.
Just anything else you can think of about all this to talk about. Stories, how you felt, what made you want to get better such as your sibling being better than you or something? I dunno.
