You'll never be this good at games

Nov 23, 2007

It's sad to think, but there simply are some people out there who put your own gaming skills to shame. They're impossibly good, unthinkably quick and mindbogglingly crafty.

Fortunately, thanks to the wonders of the Internet, we can at least enjoy their high-skills thrills vicariously. So here's 10 of the world's greatest gamers, all displaying the sort of abilities that make us weep at our inadequacy. Enjoy! 

The greatest Street Fighter comeback ever

Non-Street Fighter obsessives might watch this clip, filmed at a SF tournament, and wonder what the crowd is so worked up about. So here's a quick explanation: The player fighting as Ken is at rock bottom, with almost zero health, when Chun Li launches a 15-hit super combo.

Watch the 'parry' move that Ken makes - every single parry is a move in itself, requiring superb timing, but Ken makes 15 of the things in perfect succession, topped off with a uber-difficult mid-air parry before following up all this hard work with his own ridiculously demanding super combo to win the match, the tournament and the adoration of a horde of baying onlookers.

    The ddr videos would be far less impressive if I couldn't do most of that myself...

    hmm, well if you have ever played metal gear solid 2 you would know what i mean when i say holy crap when played on extreme. the boss fights are hard especially the olga battle. she keeps blindsighting me with that damned light. anyways the speedruns on that game on expert (mind you without using stealth or bandanna) are amazing. one guy took only 5 minutes in beating the tanker chapter on extreme. i remember people complaining about the part where solidus chokes raiden. i finished it on very hard with only one second to spare, and extreme is harder than very hard.

    ... i see myself as a good gamer and i am but in comparison to one of these guys i'm not even an (ugh. hate this word) ubernoob... I want to challenge them to IWBTG on very hard and see when they clear it in less than an hour O_O portal was 10000X awesome than if i would have done it but still it was the least awesome vid... i don't believe any of my senses and this adds to my theory that i died of happiness and have been dreaming ever since i saw the trailer for golden sun ds... nothing i has ever seen compares to this and that is coming from a guy who has zaphod's quote as a lifestyle: "Don't try to outweird me! I get weirder things than you free with my breakfast cereal!" just... i feel horrible inadequate even trying to praise them with this long*ss message... recaptcha: sonics the... fitting... the gods are playing with me...

    Wow that tetris guy was amazing...
  • DrPorker - December 6, 2008 1:47 p.m.

    I bet the portal guy memorized the level and then did it as fast as he can
  • theschwartzb - December 6, 2008 1:07 a.m.

    Ikaruga looked very challenging indeed. Try looking at the guy who was playing tetris, not only was he playing almost perfectly while going at an extreme speed, he was also playing through the credits, where you apprently cant see the blocks, that was amazing, much more so than ikaragua. Good Day
  • Draktet - December 3, 2008 11:53 p.m.

    whys noone mentioning the tetris vid? he played invisibly over the credits! and thats after i had finally adjusted to how fast he was playing....... street fighter vid rocked too
