Why do you play? [serious]

Someone in another thread made me realize that not all of us play to improve. So what is your reasoning?

Mine, is to play to the best of my abilities. If there isn't a challenge I don't see the point. So a new player better than me? I want to beat them, learn why they are better and beat them.

Play Fifa? F1 Racing? I wanna play to beat you, no need for pretty graphics. I want my skills challenged.

    If your talking just about this game then.. I play to pass the time and enjoy myself, whilst trying to get the better of others on the internet. Occasionally (when it works!) make a map for the self satisfaction of knowing others may play it.

    But mostly I play just because gaming is fun.
    If my trollery drives you crazy, you'd better put on your seatbelt.

    I play for the skinz because EZ skins EZ lyfe. Oh wait this has a serious tag. THIS ISN'T REDDIT!

    I wanna be the very best
    Like no one ever was
    To catch NME is my real test
    To train them is my cause

    Every challenge along the way
    With courage I will face
    I will battle every day
    To claim my rightful place

    Come with me, the time is right
    There's no better team
    Arm in arm we'll win the fight
    It's always been our dream

    Honestly, my desire for being the best at a video game went down the tubes years ago. These days I mainly play for fun although I do want to be good enough at any game to at least be one of the better players. Not necessarily top tier, but above average at least.

    Even when I was younger and did more competitive gaming, I never had the desire to put in the amount of hours that the top tier teams put in to be the best. My clan was always about being the best we could be while still keeping it fun.
    You joined the world's greatest army to become a graphic artist? Outstanding!

    To be the best player in game when I was younger, friends and fun now. TBH I don't even play games much anymore. More about creating lasting friendships and designing.

    Been to the top and back.. now I just frag for the easy kills especially vs Comp players.. if I played with two hands it wouldn't even be fair.

    I'm not so sure about that, Doba. She told me you only had enough for few fingers. :p

    Being competitive is in the human nature.. winning is FUN.. hence Comp = Fun .. the challenge is FUN.

    I game for fun. I game to maintain a 1KDR. I game to choke the living excrement out of M24 snipers. I game because my friends do. I game for those little moments of glory - like choking a bold comp player that ran past the dirty "cheap" corner I was standing in ( :D )

    Although, I have to admit it is nice to see when I am at the top of the score board.. it just happens so rarely...

    I game because of my incredibly inept real world social skills... :+1:

    (Oh wait, did I say that out loud?!)
