Time to retire?

This morning I had a couple of games of COD Ghosts in Free for All and I did quite well.
No doubt this is down to all the kids with their lightning reflexes being at school Angry
Just a thought.

Re: Gaming reaction times

Playing games that involve good reflexes and hand to eye coordination can help improve them...

Re: Gaming reaction times

I'm awful on Ghosts... but even worse on Battlefield 4!  Shocked
But GTA V I can take anybody out  Grin
I have noticed though I do get on better at certain times of the day.
And those are the times I don't hear squeaky voices on the mic.  Grin
Oh and I'm 34.  Embarrassed

I stopped playing on line games, when it rained, and washed away my hopscotch on the pavement....  Roll eyes

Re: Time to retire?

That would be my ideal but I tend to spend most of my time dead.
I don't play Battlefield very often as everyone else seems to know what they are doing except me Undecided
A form of masochistic pleasure I suppose. Embarrassed

Reading Trollope's "The Warden"  in an armchair beside the fire is my version of fast action nowadays.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

They should have Senior Citizen lobbies in COD games with 500ms lag, handrails on stairs and a powered Zimmer frame as a kill streak reward.
