Post Competitively good at any game?
I'm usually not competitive in games. I can't really keep up with other players.

But during college I was in a clan in Delta Force that was on top. I was our sniper. In close matches, I was always the last living person on my team and because distance and patience were in amply supply in Delta Force, it was almost certain I'd finish off the other team. It was reallly long and boring for the dead spectators, I'm sure, lol.
It was the only game I could ever really dominate in.

What about you? Are there any games you consider yourself very competitive in? Like, if a stranger played you, chances are strong that you'd beat them.

Delta Force was one of the first FPSs I ever played. Never got past the first level though. Now I beat almost every game I start.

I'm pretty good at Paperboy. I think I'm ranked #70 on the XBLA Leaderboard. Still haven't beaten it on Hard Way though.

I used to be good at The Specialists (Half-Life mod). Sometimes I got like 10 kills in a row several times; adrenaline-filled to say the least!

I'm good at the Tony Hawk games, and I've beat everyone I've played against in real life, but when I played American Wasteland online I got beat pretty bad by people who could do combos all over the levels for what seemed like an eternity.

I played Counter-Strike: Source for literally thousands of hours, but I never got any good at that. I preferred to play fy maps and gun game and to make my own maps.

I would beat the shit out of the arm wrestling machine at the arcade when I was a kid, then complain about my arm for the rest of the week

The first online game I ever played was Outrun 2 on the original Xbox. I got kind of addicted to it, playing it every night. I got to a stage where I was completely unbeatable, no-one came close to me. I amassed about 60/70 hours online. When I play any games online now I just get my arse kicked completely, just goes to show, practice does make perfect. :)
