I just can’t do it, I can’t win at real time strategy games.
If you ask me to focus on a task at hand, I can do that well. One or two things at a time I can perfectly manage, but I’ll still be tunnel-visioned on those. If there’s anything else I’m supposed to be doing and it falls outside my narrow field of vision, I just forget about it.
I’m not entirely sure how much of this is pure game knowledge and muscle memory, but real time strategy games seem like huge multi-tasking contests. He who can keep track of the most things while still staying continuously busy, takes the game.
And thar just fits me so poorly. I love that genius strategist fantasy, but it’s unachievable for me.
Oh well, there’s always fighting games!
