I’m an avid gamer and enjoy sharing my knowledge about gaming.
Over the years I have discovered some of the greatest tips about them.
I KNOW you will absolutely love them and benefit from them too.
In this article I will be explaining how to get better at video games.
Because video games are extremely fun, and the ones that want to enjoy the benefits that video games have to offer don’t really get to play them like they want to.
Simply because they keep dying and losing from other players or NPC’s (non-playable characters).
Find out my top secrets by reading the rest of this article below. I really hope you enjoy them!
Stick to one game and SMASH it
A lot of newbie gamers will get overwhelmed with all the different types of video games.
When they start playing all these different ones, they can never get to truly figure out how to be good on at least one of them.
To really master something, you need to do it often.
Playing a video game over and over again until you get good at it is one of the biggest secrets that have worked for me and many of my friends that I have taught over the years.
And it’s something I highly recommend for you to do as well.
Play at a difficult that’s slightly beyond your ability
One common reason why people don’t advance in video games is because they jump straight into the hardest difficulty and find themselves always dying and not getting any further into it.
Even if the difficulty is pretty easy, it lets you get accustomed to the controller and makes it much simpler for you to learn the different attacks, techniques, and strategies – so you can learn much faster and easier than you would have if you it on hard.
In saying that though, don’t be afraid to challenge yourself when you do eventually learn the ins and outs to the game you’re playing.
When the game gets easier, increase the difficulty, and when that one gets easier for you, put the difficulty up again.
That’s a great technique that thousands of people are doing all around the world and absolutely SMASHING the online gaming world!
Jump into online play
To further challenge yourself, and AFTER you have gotten use to the controller and discovered what the different buttons do, you might want to test your skills in some online play.
Even then, it can be quite hard at first, but that’s when practice makes perfect.
If you still find yourself not getting anywhere, repeat step 1 and step 2 until you are more confident in your gaming abilities.
Watch others play video games
With the ever-rising gaming industry and the vast amount of gaming channels on YouTube (or for the entire internet for that matter), it is only necessary to take advantage of these channels and learn from the pros.
Furthermore, twitch.tv offers a live video stream of people playing, if that’s what you’d rather prefer.
Even after days, weeks, and sometimes even months of playing video games, the missing piece to the puzzle is ‘you’ having to watch others play.
That could be the breakthrough you need to learn all the ropes to the game and find out how all the experts are actually winning.
Change Your Attitude
Almost EVERY newbie gamer I see playing a video game are always getting angry at it, blaming the game for all of their losses and wondering why they can’t get better at it.
First and foremost, you need to realize that just because it’s a video game it doesn’t take practice to master.
Because it does, and sometimes it can take years to get as good as the experts.
Most of the online gamers that you will come across (on every platform) have been playing them for many years.
They are your competition, and that is why it’s a good idea to practice consistently and to spend at least 7 hours a week, possibly more depending on the type of game you’re playing.
Single player might be your destiny for the rest of your life 🙁
We all have at least one of those friends that can’t get good at video games (and it might be YOU).
No matter how much these people play a game and practice it, they never seem to advance or get better.
I have no idea why this happens, but I know a lot of people that are like this.
I would say that they are clearly not set out to game, well not for online game-play anyway.
And if that sounds like you, you might be destined for single player mode for the rest of your life 🙁
OR, you might just have to follow the steps I have outlined inside this article exactly, over and over again, until you finally get better!
My Final Opinion
Getting good at video games mostly comes down to practice.
Practice makes perfect, and if you’re willing to put in the hours (at least 1-3 hours a day), then you’re on the right track to becoming a great gamer.
Do not expect to get good at a video game if you’re not interested in giving it a go and at least challenging yourself when you have been practicing the game for a long time.
THAT is how you get better at games, practicing and challenging yourself.
