What sort of video games are you the worst at? Why do you think that you're not so good at those certain video games?

Feel free to share!

I suck at JRPGs. I can only get halfway through them at the very best. I'm not the best at FPSes either, but I'm good enough that I can play online without people talking about how much I suck.

I suck at construction and management simulation games like SimCity or Football Manager... I just can't build a city or a awesome football team without cheating.

I'm not all that good at FPS games.. usually whenever I do get taught tactics in-game, it's with people who are more experienced, and usually I'll never know when to shoot either.

I'm like so bad at FPS games for the same reasons as Zach, in addition to my distaste of the genre the fact those games are so terribly hard is the reason I'd never play them. Also, you could count strategy as another genre I suck at. I guess this is what happened as a result of my gaming childhood being primarily based around platformer games.

FPS games urrgh. I don't get along with first person views very well and I always find myself being killed by things I don't see, plus I steer clear of most PvP on-line gameplay and stick with co-op.

Oh my god!

You ready?

I am absolutely god-awful-puke-in-a-shoe-and-give-it-to-a-orphan horrible at fighting games. Don't get me wrong. I love them. Especially Street Fighter. But I'm just bad. So bad.

Garbage, SON!

Racing games, I cannot drive to save my life.

3rd Person Shooters. Like Mass Effect and GTA. Although I absolutely adore GTA. I am poop-tastic at it. And that, ladies in gentlemen, are games that I blow at.

Same. I love playing fighting games but I'm so terrible at them. My coordination is great thanks to osu but I suck at the thinking aspect of it. Punching the enemy until they die with no planning will only get you so far.

Actually I suck at any game that involves coordinating intricate combos, including action games like Devil May Cry. I just wanna press buttons until things die.

Mostly fighting games where combo-loops are the key to success. But then again I never liked Fighting games aside from P4A anyways.

First person/third person shooters are also so stressing, there is always that somebody that jumps around like a rabbit on hard drugs which makes aiming a real pain in the swiggeryswag bag.

RPG/JRPGs somewhat. I always fail at the parts where specializing certain characters are essential, so I always have a hard time to pull through the game but then again that makes it fun... Right? ....R-right? No? ; ___ ;

Fast-paced puzzle games, that's probably the most irritating genre(?) of game I suck at the most. When I thought this is the limit how much stress a human being can produce another level of stress comes in play. I have never touched a puzzle game for over six years.

... Sweet... jesus. FPS's. Portal and TF2 are the only ones I've played that I've actually been decent at. Portal because puzzles and TF2 because balance. I've played my fair share of Call of Duty and Halo and Gears of War. And you know what?

... I suck at them. A lot. Sure, I can eventually beat them, but that doesn't change how badly I suck getting there.

... I'm relatively good at other genres. Although I'm admittedly rather weak in the RPG area.

Fighting games, definitely. I don't have the patience or dedication to learn all the different moves and combos, so I usually just wind up button mashing. Plus I just don't enjoy them.

I'm not particularly great at FPSes either. I used to be better (but still pretty bad) but I haven't played many lately at all so I'm sure I couldn't hold my own in a Halo match at this point.

Music:Because some songs are just too dang hard to play on a plastic guitar.

Fighting games I have a love/hate relationship with. I'm decent enough to hold out and even win matches against my cousin in games like Tekken,but when it comes to things like Street Fighter and King of Fighters,I do horribly.Commands for certain moves i can't do(I'm looking at you Zangief) and even then,some commands don't even happen.

Dark souls? Oh please... It's time for you to play Ghosts N' goblins.

I'm horrible at fighting games in general, I can never remember any combo moves whatsoever. I'm okay in FPS but I'm still not good at it compared to my friends.

Besides Mario kart, I'm terrible at racing games... and also generally FPS games too. Except the Metroid Prime series. So basically all non-Nintendo games, hooray!

I'm bad at Super Smash Brothers. Most of the time I just smash keys hoping it'd do me some good. That game is a little too fast-paced for me sometimes.. maybe it's because I was using the Wii remote as a controller. >_>;

My worst game would have to be Super Smash Bros. I love the games, and they're incredibly fun, but man do I suck. I can hold my own when I really concentrate, but I only really win against people who haven't played before. Well, I guess I can noob my way to victory through Pikachu, but you know you suck at the game when Bowser is your best character. XD

As much as I love to play RTS games, I'm nowhere near good enough to play competitively, I'm barely adequate enough to play casually. I'm not that bad at FPS's but, again, I'm no pro. I absolutely cannot play horror games without someone with me, and I don't mean just in the room or general area, I mean right beside me, watching me play.

Racing games are the bane of my gaming skills. I just can't play racing games (with the exception of Mario Kart) for my life. I tried Gran Turismo and Wipeout, and it wasn't particularly fun experience.

I'm also extremely horrible at bullet hell shooters, as I can barely play any of the Touhou games or Ikaruga.
