I really enjoy playing the "Super Smash Bros." games, but I am not actually very good at playing them.

What video game series do you enjoy playing, despite not really being very good at?

Rock Band / Guitar Hero. I've been playing them since the PS2 days and have put hundreds of hours into them and can't play higher than medium difficulty. I still have an incredibly hard time anytime you have to move to the orange button.

Sports games like NBA 2K or Madden, in that i've never been great at running real plays and moving up to high levels of AI difficulty, but still fun playing seasons or creating players.

i guess the Tomb Raiders, both new ones and 2D scrolling. not that i am bad, it's just that i buy them, play them for maybe a minute or so and then just discard for no particular reason. i keep buying them, but don't actually play them. maybe that is another issue entirely though...

Me too especially with FIFA and NHL. I don’t bother with online because I get killed by 12 years old kids.

Agreed, screw RB4 for putting the orange button in medium difficulty.

There's a 2D side scrolling Tomb Raider game?

I think being unable to kill the bear early on in Tomb Raider means you're bad
