I love that, and unrelated to tag it brings to mind my experience or multiplayer games. When I was a a late teen I was terrifyingly good at shooters, my reflexes were very quick and I got into a some that was hard to beat. As I got older that reflexive edge, while not gone, isn’t a match for today’s teens. What I have however is a kind sense of game flow, likely patterns of behavior, and how maps work. I’ve become old and sneakh and mean in other words. Where I sort of brute-forced wins before, now I finesse them.
Getting older isn’t all fun, but the ability to be conniving with more experience is a real pleasure. Strategy takes the place of force, and it can often be more effective.

I've somewhat had this feeling in some ArmA games (casual modes though) where I would watch some newer players jump around like they're playing Call of Duty through my sniper rifle or over an LMG. It's quite fun to watch and I usually put them out of their misery once it gets boring.
On the other hand, when breaching a room the same players will murder entire squads without loosing a shred of health (atleast until a nearby player obtains a tank with HE rounds)
Edit: OK, I scrolled far, and further. Oh wow.
Sidenote: This website design is pretty good at conveying uneasiness.
Edit: Alright, this is a great story.
olalonde gets a point for predicting the movie.
What was that game?
If anyone likes sci-fi they will enjoy this - don't let the football bit put you off if you aren't into sports.
THIS is what the web is for. Unique stuff designed for and in the medium. Fantastic.
It's actually in poor taste these days, so I won't post it, but we were 14 years old and thought it funny as can be!
Quiet Place was okay but basically a dinosaur movie in a big field.
