    I mean, I didn't quite phrase it like that but... yeah. If you aren't adapting to the challenges given to you, why are you continuing? And it's not about "oh you play so many games hur hur hur" it's about your behaviours.

    Hardly think that's elitism. I'm not fantastic at the games myself, and often spend a lot of time eating shit from enemies just to learn how to beat them, but that's because I'm in a mind set where I want to learn and adapt and not just push buttons and get ruined.

    People hide behind the excuse of difficulty to mask their own inability.

    Christ, of bloody course I am shit! It's a console game. You play it with a controller. I am in my 40ies, I am not "getting gud" at anything anymore.

    It's a myth that these games only need "patience and pattern learning", you also need good reactions (and cope with some dubious hitboxes).

    But again, saying they are difficult (which they are) is not the same as wanting to play Dynasty Warriors.

    This is why I don't talk about the difficulty in soulsborne games, as I don't find them particularly hard, but it's hard to put that in a way that doesn't make you sound like a patronising l33t boi.

    See. :)

    To be fair I have the same problem with any online game. I really can't be arsed to get good enough to compete and (despite what mongman69 might think) I don't have the time.

    Single player games are not too bad though. AI is always predicable and exploitable to an extent if you play them enough.

    By enough I mean EVERY WAKING HOUR

    To be fair, if you don't play many games, and you still managed to play all of From's output while not gitting gud at them...

    I think you have other problems. Either you don't know what the term "many games" means, or you are really shit at figuring out what games you like - or maybe you just like running around the From equivalent of the first level in your free time over and over - I don't even know.

    I wish I'd not asked about iframes now. That's a whole level of nerd I didn't want to know really.

    But if you play an action game, you'll know why your dodge worked or not. YOURE FUCKING WELCOME.

    There are certain games/genres that I want to like, and have continued to buy in the hope that 'maybe this is the one where it'll click', but are still shit at. I feel like a lot of gamers do this.

    The thing with these games is that they are more or less all the same, including the clones so once you're 'gud', you're gud full stop.

    So, yeah.... five entire games is a long time to suck.

    Okay, that was an option I admittedly missed off my list, but it was covered by the fact I don't even know.

    I find them more irritating (and a bit shit) than hard. I find myself constantly wanting my guy to move faster(oh yeah).

    Taking my trousers off for a moment and wading into this particularly boistrous pool, can I point out that they are different enough from each other so as to mean being good at one does not mean being good at another.

    I fucking sucked at bloodborne for example and it took me a long time to get the hang of it. The fact I did is because I wanted to discover more of the game, and that is possibly my most motivating factor in these games. Not getting better per se, but devoting more time than I normally would becuase of the content that I will unearth and the game world and lore that I will immerse myself in.

    I am not good. Yet I've platted DS1,2,3 and BB. Yet I'm not good. Skill has, to be blunt, fuck all to do with it. Do you like the game enough to spend the time required to progress? I do, others don't and move on after a while. Fair play. Who gives a shit?

    @wuntyphyve

    Likewise. I'm shit at all the soulsborne games but finished them. I could pick one up now and still be shit at it. Takes me ages to find my groove. Gaming time and motivation is somewhat limited these days so takes me longer to 'git gud'
