I fail at being a gamer.
I briefly logged into WoW today to work on my lowbie druid. Killed Yowler. Killed 15 Blackrock Champions. Logged out. *sigh*
Really want to be addicted to a new game, but there are so few games that I can actually play. The problem with me, and I'm not afraid to admit it, is that I have a very low skill level as far as games are concerned. I remember playing various games on various consoles throughout my childhood, and everything would be wonderful up until I got to the first boss... and then I would usually deem the game too stressful to continue.
Why do there have to be bosses? They just freak me out. Even the music gets tense, and that freaks me out, too. Trying to kill a boss makes me shake. It's always too scary and difficult for me. I remember getting Zelda on my N64 and getting to the first boss, which I think was a large spider called Queen Gohma or something - and I tried, but I just couldn't do it - so I got my brother to kill it for me. Same thing with the first boss in Banjo Kazooie (needless to say, he also killed all the other bosses from then on for me).
So that's when I started to lose interest in those kind of games - it just wasn't very satisfying to play if I knew I'd never be able to kill the bosses on my own. But I'm still interested in games, just from afar - I think games these days look incredible, and I enjoy watching other people play them - but I know I'll just suck too much to bother trying for myself.
I should mention that I did play Portal all the way through a few months ago, including the last fight at the end. Go me! (Yeah, I know...) I should also probably mention that I had to have my husband guide me through every step of it, and it took about four attempts before I did it right. And also that I was extremely shaky and sweaty by the end of it. I just can't deal with that kind of stress...
Anyway, another reason why I suck at games: combos. I hate games with combos. I just don't know how people manage to remember so many combos to be able to do things. I mean, maybe if I tried hard, I could remember some of them - but then the next time you play a new game, there's a whole new set of more combos you have to learn! Too much work, man.
So I'm just kind of a lame gamer. I like stupid puzzle games, and games that don't really count as games, like Singstar or Rock Band. Y'know, the games that aren't cool. Puzzle Quest. That was an awesome game. Epic music.
Anyway, time for bed. This has been my epic rant about why I suck at games. Good night!
