Basically, if you play one game, do you seem worse at the other one then you are typically (especially shooters)? Including console games, not just PC.

Nope... Not unless I take significant time away from game, but especially with shooters, I don't usually tend to lose my aim really. Most common loss of skill for me is getting rusty on idea build orders and stuff in RTS games.

Your innate skill will stay roughly the same, but you will make more mistakes and in most competitive games that means losing. Pro gamers play so much to keep their refinements sharp and deadly.

Not really. If I don't play a fighting game for a while I lose some of the timing and stuff, but usually it comes back and I'm better than I was previously. I can jump from shooter to shooter and be fine.

It's the opposite for me. I'm always better after I take a break. Typically after I've spend a long time playing a game I become careless and arrogant with my own skill, I spend more time doing stupid showoffy for my own entertainment that I just start doing poorly. After the break I remember what it is to actually play the game well.

It's the difference between taking my time in Counter Strike, check corners, aim properly, versus growing impatient and racing through a level with an SMG or shotgun.
