Yes. Laughably bad. Purchased on launch day and since have logged better than 6 days into Black ops. My k/d has hit an all time high of 0.67. My killstreak stats are hilarious to most players; a low number of low end killstreaks, about 90 napalm strikes, 60 some odd mortar teams, and a handful of higher killstreaks that were only obtained through the care package blessing of digital warfare. I have never earned a chopper gunner nor have I ever earned a gunship... Actually I have never even purchased them and I am on my 9th prestige!!!! Truth be told I have never earned anything higher then an attack helicopter outside of the care package. I have a highest killstreak of 11 and I would be generous to say I have got 11 kills in a row MAYBE 5 times. My win/loss? forget it!!!! I tried to join up with some clans to maybe get my game a lil stronger. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... No clan in their right minds wants to take a player like me, seriously.
I have been gaming since the launch day of the NES. yea, the first nintendo, kids. Okay, maybe not the launch day but I had one as a kid, and it was still the newest thing out there! anyway... all these years of gaming and having a blast, and today after a couple frustrating sessions of Black Ops It hit me....
THIS IS NO LONGER FUN FOR ME.
I mean, who wants to lose that much? I feel like the video game curve has surpassed my skill level about 1 Call of Duty title ago. Yep. In the case of Black Ops, I constantly die from the backside. Or, claymores. Damn they should have taken claymores out of objective based gaming. I get a kill. take a death. take a death. get a kill. the pattern repeats it self... I watched a guy on youtube yesterday go 83kills and 3deaths. baffled me worse than sudoku (or whatever you call that stuff)??? how can the ends of the spectrum vary so much? It is just a game right? huh? I am lost in the matrix here... years of gaming and successful dueling and not I can't decide if I have burnt out or the gaming world just left me behind at some point. The antiquated gamer. I feel let down by my favorite industry ever... and I don't know why? I feel that feeling like when you know you need to break it off with that girl, but you just keep holding on to every little bit hoping it will work itself out. I feel DONE.
And... the fork is inserted.
