I am not commenting on the action/adventure vs. competitive gaming skill levels anymore. I feel like I am being trolled. It is the only logical conclusion.
It takes time to learn all the ins and outs of the game for sure. There are a lot of people that claim they are video game athletes though and that is what I find funny. Some of these people think sitting on their ass all day pushing buttons on a gamepad or keyboard makes them athletes because they are competing against other people.

These two guys are not athletes:
