I have not played Team Fortress 2 in three months.
I have never played Team Fortress 2 on a regular basis, though I did, once upon a time, play an engineer in Team Fortress Classic daily for 4+ hours until I regularly topped PUG server leaderboards or at least came in second place.
Would you not laugh at me if I were to join a random TF2 server as an engineer and expect/demand the same performance result right off the bat?
I played Batman: Arkham Asylum ages ago.
I was a fearsome terror that flapped in the night, chaining the sickest combos that stretched to the 20s and 30s, to the point that I was playing the challenge arenas and hitting most of the achievements and trying to improve my score little by little.
Years later, I picked up Batman: Arkham City…
…and my Batman SUCKED.
I couldn’t even chain 5 attacks. I was getting beat up by ordinary thugs on the street.
Obviously, this is the designers’ fault because they set the difficulty level too hard.
Couldn’t be me. I was a Batman GOD before this.
I have not played Skyrim in more than a year.
If I were to buy one of their DLC expansions and log back into my old character, who finished the game some time ago, what are the odds that I will be able to dive headfirst into the content without dying several times while I try to remember which button does what again, and how is my character set up to fight?
I guess this means this is a poor content addition and I should just give up now because I keep dying. It is too hard.
P.S. Full disclosure: It took me about halfway through Arkham City before I finally got the hang of the correct timing to press the appropriate buttons and remembered how to chain combos effectively and felt like Batman again.
I expect to do as badly for Arkham Knight this year.
