I'm getting old. (31) Time to let go of those "twitch reflex" games?

My eyes get blurry sometimes
My hands feel stiff sometimes and take longer and longer to loosen up
My reaction times are getting slower

*cries*

I might have to start looking at strategy games more and more (like x-com) or RPGs. But, but, but, I like competitive games! :(

So keep playing competitive games.
You'll get worse faster if you stop.

I don't know how old you are tc, but I'm stronger and faster now, than when I was a teenager, and I'm pretty sure I'm older than you are.

Those should happen at 51 not 31. Maybe you need to see a doctor or just take better care of yourself.

31 isn't old and I don't think its the reason your loosing your touch. To be good at those competitive online games, you have to put the time in. As a 31 year old man I assume you can't invest the same amount of time in gaming as you used to. I clock in about 20 to 30 hours every 2 weeks if I'm lucky but I still have friends clocking in 60 to 80 hours every 2 weeks. Because I don't invest the time into gaming, I'm seeing a little drop off in my skills as well. Growing up sticks.

Yeah, it seems like your League of Legends skill is declining. You've reached your peak, man.

It's sad when a 15-year-old tries to imagine what 31 will be like and just gets it all wrong.
