Doe anyone else get nervous before they enter certain games multiplayer games ?

I do at times for some reason lol , if im just playing casually i dont but if im going on to play in seriousness to really try to own i do sometimes get nervous before and during, i usually will get nervous during if im on a kill spree and dont want to lose it.

But another question is does it work to your advantage or put you all over the place ?

With me it can do both tbh it just depends, it can make me put more effort or i can go all over the place and just get owned lol

EDIT: how do i make a poll btw ? cant see that option ....

I don't really get nervous when playing games. I might become tense or on edge if i was on a kill spree or in the middle of a intense tight game, but that's about it.

And to add a poll you tick, add poll when you post..

I do yeah! on say MW2 if i just got like 5 kills i start to panic a little. I can't say i focus more. I think I do but i always ebd up getting killed anyway lol. Most of the time i'm ok going in to a game i'm fine playing i'm fine but it's the same with bosses to I start to feel the tension lol

That's quite a good question.

I guess when your team mates are watching you because they have already died like in Wingman and Execution then you'll up your game a bit and try harder and yes you can become nervous. Shit sometimes those situations have me shaking...

Am afraid that only Gears can get me like that.

I always get nervous in MP. No matter what it is, or rather my adrenaline is pumping, which makes tense and nervous (at least it is the same effect as nerves). As soon as a human opponent enters the mix, my heart starts pounding. It does ease off the more I play a game, but it happens with every new game I play. It frustrates the hell out of me.

A little, but only when I'm struggling at the start. I nearly always start badly with very few kills while everybody is on 10 already, once I start to pick up a streak, I tend to get less nervous and more focused, just takes me a few edgy minutes to learn peoples styles.

i was going to add 4. YOU BETTER GET NERVOUS IF YOU SEE MY NAME IN THE LOBBY

Can't say I do. Cool, calm and collected is my mantra. Guess it's because I don't really take MP games seriously. I play for fun, not to show off my "l33t skillz".

I most definitely get nervous, that's why I rarely play in multiplayer. When I was new to Halo, I tried out some matches and couldn't stay alive more than a minute. I shifted tactics and tried to see if I could just hide long enough to stay alive to no avail. :( I've since gotten better, but just hate the feeling that I'm letting my teammates down, so I don't play. On the rare occasions that I play just with family or friends, I tend to panic and go all over the place. They let me stay alive a tad longer, though.

I never get nervous playing games, it happens that I get pissed a lot though. But that's another story for another time.

Usually I don't. When I play MP, I don't normally aim specifically for an achievement or thing to do... they just come w/ time. Having said that, I am not the greatest Halo player, I love the game, and am A-OK w/ my 1:1 K/D ratio. I hadn't unlocked the Killing Frenzy achievement in Halo 3, I had just killed 9 guys in a row... at that point, I was nervous... thinking "Pleasedontdiepleasedontdie." =]

I always got new when I was close to FC-ing a song in Rock Band or Guitar Hero. Unfortunately, most of the time I failed due to my nerves failing me. When I managed not to think of the FC, I succeeded.

Something i find helps your nerves is being in a party with your headset on talking to someone BUT at the same time it makes me worse cos im to busy talking instead of playing properly

I play worse when sniping in S&D on MW2, in private matches/FFA I'll hit my target in the first shot 90% of the time but in S&D it's about 50/50.

I get nervous whenever I am doing surprisingly well and have a good killstreak. Then try something silly coz I feel like Rambo and get splattered which gets me back to my normal sense. :)

In some games like halo and GTA when im trying to do something perfect.

Only in games like COD 4 when I'm on a really big kill streak, or if I'm the last man standing.

its funny when people are doing really well thats when it hits them, you would think this would give you the boost to carry on a and be great but maybe not for some

Alot on fighting games, like street figher, and Tekken6.
Im not really that good at them, And seeing as it just shows you win loss ratio right there i get a little nervous when joining a match as if i have a bad one i feel really bad at the game and then when i see he has like 3 loses and 200 wins i worry a little. I won one match on tekken6 and the match was so close i never went on multiplayer again :D

With big team games im never really that bothered If we lose atleast it wasnt all my fault... Unless its S&D and im last guy left and my whole team are watching me and winning the match is all down to me.

Only two times i get nervous playing MP and its in mw2. the main time i get nervous i when i was going for my nuke emblem. I was very nervous when i got out of the chopper gunner and had like 22+kills but still needed more for the nuke. I also get nervous when i start out in a lobby where everybody is talking shit. I make sure my party plays for real so we can shut the guys up. I can see talking shit if the game is over but i hate it when people do it before the first game even starts. My favorite things is when you beat the shit talkers and then the post game lobby is silent, and then you see them back out one by one.

ohhh now i never get nervous at them, when it come to street fighter especially i know its going to take a very very good player to take me down, i grew up on games like that before FPS were the main style of games, i used to own at mortal kombat, killer instinct gold every street fighter there is , capcom vs snk .... i was amazing at them all, none of my friends could beat me, i would love them to be the big games again, wow if only there was multiplayer online in them days i would of been top of alot of leader boards , i used to know every single players move from a simple fire ball to a 200 hit combo on killer instinct lol .. no one had a chance to hit me little tho beat me .. oh the good old days :D

Not with multiplayer, I did get nervous with Alan Wake's "Run-On Sentence" achievement (play the pretty difficult first DLC, which lasts around 40 minutes, without dying once)... I tried it 5 times so far, three of those I died in the last 5 minutes :/

Opiate42
10-18-2010, 08:12 PM
I did today but that wasn't MP, it was a presentation in front of 40 people I don't know when I was told it was only 19. Bit of a curve ball there.

MP? No, I do get a pit in my stomach when I have that feeling it's going to be "one of those games" full of dinks and dorks who use glitches, hacks or are just generally tactless and cheap in how they play. Why I stopped playing MP in a lot of games.

Takes all the fun out of it.

Excited anxiety kicks in as Leubbi says when you're trying to accomplish a challenge or achievement without dying and you're....just ....almost....THERE!!!! yah, then I get nervous because like the Legendary level daily challenges in Reach....I have a habit of dying in the last tiny bit before it's over and have to redo the whole damn level so carefully again!!! FRAK!

10-18-2010, 08:46 PM
Not really. I suck too much to bother with getting nervous haha.
I maybe do a bit if I'm the last person standing on S&D or something, most times when that happens my first thought is to cook a nade and not let go XD Never had done though cause I can just imagine the hate mail I'd get....plus it's oh so satisfying if a miracle happens and I kill everyone else.

I don't necessarily get nervous before a game but i do get a little intimidated if the other team is statistically better than my team. Higher rank etc.

10-18-2010, 09:41 PM
I can remember getting nervous at times while playing some games. But, I can't remember ever being nervous in the past few years. I think because I'm not very competitive anymore. I mostly just play games for fun now, lol.

I only got nervous the very first time I played MP live. It was on Gears of War 2 and I was playing a wingman match so it was even more nerve racking when the dude I was playing with started cussing me out since I had no idea what the hell was going on... that was almost a year ago and I still suck at Gears online lol :p

On MW2 I get really on edge, waiting to be killed.

10-18-2010, 11:22 PM
In MP games in general, I only get nervous when I'm on the verge of obtaining an achievement. I was so on edge when I got Swords on Guardian in Halo 3 for the Steppin' Razor cheevo. In Gears 2, it happens when I'm last alive in Guardian or when we're about to win or lose a round in Annex. In Halo: Reach, it happened when I got my first perfection. I was shaking throughout the game and even after it ended. Also happens when I complete a tough part in a campaign and I'm looking for a checkpoint.

yeah, that's one thing about MW2; it gets intense as hell. especially when there aren't that many people. it becomes a game of cat and mouse.

I get anxious/nervous when I am the last person alive on Gears of War1/2.

That is really the only time.

Heart starts racing when the rounds are tied 4 to 4 and I am the last one alive to win the game.

I only tend to get nervous when close to an achievement like earlier I was one kill off an achievement on Medal of Honor in Multiplayer and ended up killing myself with one of my own killstreaks since was trying to use it while getting shot at. Maybe if do a clan match I get a bit nervous otherwise I'm fine.

I tend to get quite nervous if I'm playing Fifa online and I'm winning 1-0 with like 5 minutes to go.

Also on call of duty, I get really nervous and edgy when I know I'm close to kill streaks.

I might get nervous during a game but never before.

This only happens to me when i am close to REALLY hard achievements.

For example:
While doing the two hard time trials on Split/Second, everytime I felt that I was close my hands would just start trembling and I actually crashed a couple of times because of it.
Also on Trials HD when I was doing the Ultimate Endurance and I finally, after dozens of dozens of tries, made it to the last level, I had to take about a five minute break so my hands would get back under my own control.

I get the same way, but I blew that achievement, broke my controller, and haven't played it since.
I used to get real nervous when I was the last person alive. When SOCOM first came out on PS2, I tried to make sure I got killed haha. It was brutal having everybody watch you, and as soon as you got killed, all the mics would come back and you hear "oooooohhhhh" The sound of failure.

depends upon the situation really, say if on mw2 and my team is getting owned but im on a 23 kill streak going for a nuke i get a bit nervous then but other than that im just chillin and taking it all in my stride.

i get pissed off more than anything, god dam other people killing me... its not right :P

Kind of impossible for me to get nervous, unless your playing with your friends and you guys are like dedicated on winning, then sure i be nevrous about pulling my on wieght. But not really, you don't even know them.

10-19-2010, 05:03 PM
I don't generally get nervous but I do sometimes get tense when playing any FPS, just because it's usually a tense environment. But like an OP said, its fun to shut up shit talkers on games like MW2 and they just don't know what to say and leave. But usually in clutch situations like a 1v6 or something of the sort I tense up a little bit, but that usually helps me play better.

On the Halo Reach Multiplayer and MW2 Multiplayer I get nervous as hell.....

FFFreak1129
10-20-2010, 10:59 AM
Sometimes. It depends. I used to get nervous when I would play MP because I never knew what kind of random people I would run into (this was before parties). That combined with me sucking made me a bit nervous.

Now that parties are there I'm usually always in a party when I play, so I don't get nervous about that anymore. I do get nervous when I'm playing a new MP game because I'm not sure of what I'm doing yet I guess or how bad I'm going to suck lol.

Oh! Whenever I talk to a friend for the first time, I get a little nervous. I don't know why I guess maybe because I'm hoping I don't bore them to death :p

I tend to get nervous beforehand. Before I even put in the game or in the lobby. Maybe it's just social anxiety for lack of a better term.

When the game itself actually starts, it all goes away. I tend to get a zen-like focus and just play the game.

I get nervous everytime I play online, I suck so bad that I worry I'll get kicked from the game.
