It's always my fault:
« on: October 01, 2017, 08:16:57 pm »
I've been playing overwatch finally (since i loved the comics, animations, and all from it)

Thing is, there's something with videogames and me that really just bothers me.

I seem to have like some anxiety with team games. No one talks to me at all in it. I've never heard a peep from people. But if the team loses, I always blame myself for the loss. It's because of my lack of skill that I keep on losing matches.

I always feel like I suck in comparison to other people. Whether smash bros or any other game with other people. I feel I'm beaten easily and everyone is always better than me. This also applies to art and music as well. I feel everyone is better than me and I can't really do anything to sound better and such.

It's a bit of a real problem :/ sucks motivation and makes videogames more stressful and anxiety-inducing than relaxing after a while.

Whenever I play any kind of online game, I see all those other people, who are so good. And then there's me, that one guy who tries, but constantly fails.
For example, I play Final Fantasy XI on a private server, and everyone there is like, really good. But the game only confuses me. The game would be easier if people would help me and such, but they won't, making it even harder for me.
I guess I want to be as good as others. Though it just takes all the fun away.

Hey guys, if either of you ever reads this, two things: One, it takes a lot of time and practice for most people to get good at video games! A few people pick things up quickly, but most people you see playing games who are really good, they are good because they have been doing it for quite some time! Same with music, same with art, most really good artists have been drawing for years, day after day after day of sketching, thousands upon thousands of drawings to refine themselves to what they do now. Its not much different for games, and if you feel like you are dragging your team down because you aren't that good, just remember, most people started off sucking at that game too! And it took them a long time of being that useless player who doesn't know how to wall ride as lucio or can't hit hooks as roadhog or misses headshots as mccree before they got to where they are. And its only by playing match after match that you learn these skills and get better so you can be an awesome team player.

Another note, its very unlikely that it is all your fault your team lost. Even if you are, actually, the weakest team member, games like overwatch are team based, meaning the individual strengths matter, but only so far as the whole team can work together. It doesn't matter how good your widow is if she keeps going off on her own and then gets ambushed because the other team is communicating and didn't let her start wiping them out.

But if you really keep feeling that way, here is some advice, play with people you know. Invite friends, or ask people you play with if they want to keep playing with you and help you, or even see if other people on these forums play your games and play with them! Communication can help a lot, but also just having people you know or who are nice and supportive can help a ton. I personally don't play overwatch except when I'm at a friends, but I play Team Fortress Two, and when I'm really just feeling garbage at the game because I just keep dying, I go play with a buddy who will either be a good teammate and actually help me stay alive by staying at my side, or will make me feel less bad at the game because they suck as well :D

Thanks for this. Although this was a while ago. Sadly I haven't been playing much videogames because school started and then I'm just one of 'dem busy high school kiddies' (heheheee... I envy people with less stressful lives who can play videogames during the weekdays without feeling guilty or that they're forgetting an assignment for a class...)
