    My yonger self may have been better at gaming just because games were harder then, there weren't autosaves back then. I think on of the hardest games I beat was Medal of Honor Frontlines in hard.

    I would have to say i've gotten better with age. As a youngling I had anger issues and must have gone through handfuls of Nintendo controllers. I never read instructions or story prompts back then either. I'd say my skill gets better with time and in-game experience. I now like to read through the manual when I pick up a game and always thoroughly enjoy the story lines. I'll actually go as far as turning on subtitles so that I can hear and see what's being said in the game. I just don't want to miss anything nowadays, haha.

    My "skill" has increased quite a bit in just the last year. I remember picking up InFamous when it first came out and had some trouble getting through parts of the game. Same with [PROTOTYPE]. Well, since I've been hunting down :plat: trophies, I went back to those games recently and they were both much easier than before.

    Well my friend it was a lot longer then 5 years ago that it was released, try 10. I am 39 years old and my twitching has slowed down a little, I find it harder to concenrate and focus and let my thumbs and fingers do what comes natural I have to think about the buttons its hard to explain, except that my younger gamer was better in reflexes but I am way smarter and can think outside the box now so that helps.

    I'm a lot better than what I was when I was younger, not that I was a slouch back then anyways. I remember playing what I thought was brutal games back on the NES like Mike Tyson's Punch Out and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when I was younger and died often. However, when I went back to them several years later I found I was able to do much better than before.

    As I get older my gaming definitely gets better. Many games that are out and are coming out are either spinoffs, prequels, sequels and games that can be very well compared to others. So for me it's been there done that, I can breeze right thru games now.

    Nope. Instead, I'd say I am triple better than I used to be... First of all, when I was young, I did not know English, that's why I actually didn't play a game to its full potential(story, full gameplay understanding etc). Also, half of my old games are unfinished, sometimes because of lack of skill while others because I just didn't know what to do and I am too bored to play them again(english could have been a factor). Of course, it depends on what do you mean by "younger self". How much younger? Because I'm talking about when I was between 4 and 13...

    I'm way better at games now then I was several years ago because I have more dedication for a game now, my younger self would have either gave up or just used cheats.
