365 Challenge : Competition

What activity, task or game most brings out your competitive streak?

I’m not sure I have one at all you know. I’m so used to being poor at things that I don’t get competitive. There really is little point for me.

As a kid the only person I knew that liked gaming was my cousin and he is 10 years older then me and was just generally better then me. He never showed me how to do anything so just gave me a control pad and expected me to be able to beat him. As a kid I loved things like Mortal Kombat but I didn’t really own anything like that and if I did own a game, like Soul Caliber, he refused to play against me. I also had no time for track and field type games so he’d always play them against me but would never play my F1 or wrestling games against me.

Its the same for card games and board games. I grew up with shitbags that refused to explain rules and didn’t give you time to read them yourself so you had to “learn as you went” which basically meant learn the rules as they worked in the other persons favour.

Possibly why I have such a pessimistic outlook on my abilities in gaming, then again some of the shit I get up to in Fall Out 4 reminds me that I’m right in my pessimistic outlook on my gaming abilities (or I guess my lack of them.)

Then again it shouldn’t surprise you because I’m generally just very nervous when I am around people in general so how the heck could I get competitive against people?

Its nice though.

Means I’m neither a sore winner or a sore loser. I’m used to losing and am always shocked to death if I win.
