Now: Nothing. I suck.

Then: Death Rally. I was insanly good. But man, the road to stardom wasn't pretty. I used to get so angry, punching holes in walls and s*hit. LOL, i remember the time i thought i would "RP" Farmer Ted, and stuck with the pick up the whole time. Beat the game, killing ALL players...with the spikes. Hardcore. Well in that situation it's pretty much impossible to race them, you gotta go for the kill. But i really prefected the art of ramming with the spikes. =)

In my younger days I would have backed myself against anybody playing Kick Off or Kick Off 2.

These days, nothing. I do ok on COD4/MW2 online but there are far better players than me.........

Around 2004, Soul Calibur 2, as Nightmare, I was pretty much undefeated amongst my friends.
Smash Bros Melee, no items, final destination I don't believe I lost very often either.
Pokémon R/B/Y, played these games to death - I doubt there's a thing I don't know about them.

Now, I don't really know because I'm more mature and with the introduction of online console gaming I can confirm how good I am usually. :lol: I'm alright at Counter-Strike Source and Tekken 6 now though I guess.

Last time I checked I was 13th in the world on the REZ scoreboards on Live. Which is pretty good I reckon.

I'd like to think I'm pretty good at the Megaman series in general though looking at people speed runs and such on Youtube highlights that I'm average at best. I don't think I'd have the patience to learn any game to that level of precision though!

I was pretty good at Megaman 9 on release, I was in the top 20 in the leaderboards for a while on the Endless run (not sure where I am now though)
