    Default Being 'good' at games

    Do you care about being good at games? eg Being No 1 at the end of a CS match or maybe getting the most kills, or building something in the most efficient way.

    I don't worry about that too much. I just play to play.

    For example, I just got a comment on one of my Caesar IV videos that I should have placed the reservoir first then built roads around the max distance that the reservoir supplies and then built a bathhouse right next to the bathhouse at the beginning of the game. Now obviously this person thinks this is the best way to play. But I have no intention of playing like that.

    Used to. Could care less now. Either I'm good at a game or I'm shit at it, in which case I move along.

    Basically I play for myself not other people.

    Sorta.

    I don't do super competitive games like CSGO. Prefer semi-casual like TF2.

    However if I'm in a competitive mood then yeah I'll definitely compete competitively in that context.

    I don't really think that is a good metric though. It's more about whether you're having fun. Crushing nooblets can be fun too I guess

    I play quite a bit of Dota 2 online and I really dont care too much about my score. I am more worried about my performance in the team but I wont break myself over having a s**tty game. Such is life.

    That my biggest problem. I am too competitive. Almost solely play games vs others. Played CSGO again last night for the first time in about 5 months. Had 32 Kills and 8 Deaths, that is what makes me happy. Is winning =D

    I want to play well enough that I enjoy it and at least have a fighting chance. Being top of the logs is no concern but I don't want to be annihilated.
    I actually aim to have more style than anything else, if that makes sense? Scoring Skill kills/goals/points is far more satisfying.

    I usually don't care, but if I end up on top, I make sure to rub it in their faces.

    I refuse to play competitively. EVERY time I get pulled into anything competitive I leave - I play for fun, not for winning - If that was the case I would have stopped gaming ages ago
