I'm smarter but I'm probably worse at competitive FPS games than I used to be.

I'm better at single player games but my reflexes are gone.

I have to rely on anticipating and predicting now.

I used to be ass at fighting games. I hated playing them with my brothers, because they would just whoop my ass. However, after not playing a fighting game since Soul Calibur V, on a whim, I picked up Injustice 2 and actually put forth the effort into actually learning the ins and outs. Like Matchups, frame data, etc. Now I am an absolute beast at that game, even picked up Street Fighter V.

Other than that, I learned a trick to help with my aim, turning vibration off and playing claw for twitch shooters. Also started turning on hard mode for most games and it's thoroughly enjoyable. So yeah. I think I have.
Playing: AC: Origins, SFV, Titanfall 2 and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

It depends on the type of game.
I don't believe in equality. I believe in equity.

Not at all. It's also because I don't have the patience anymore to play games that kick my ass over and over again

Seeing as how I can't even get past the second world of Cuphead. Nope lol. If anything I am probably worse and will continue to decline from here.

Nope I'm worse. Used to be able to 4 on 1 in Gears 1 and was always near the top in weekly and monthly leaderboards. Gears 4 I'll be lucky if I kill anyone without a power weapon.

I think I'm better. In my prime I should say. I play fighters a lot and I understand nuances I didn't before. I got really bad in Gears of war though. Might be because I lack interest in it atm.

Fighting games are the bane of my existence... never have I wanted to be good at a game and put so much time in to just suck so much ass 😂

I was like that when I was younger. Getting your ass handed to you isn't going to help you. Understanding why you got your ass beat will help you level up a lot.
