I love this game but its like the origonal pacman with a single everlasting unchanging level. I die but never loose enough lives to loose. Its also why I never posted a score. I do not want to go and go on and on forevor.

yeah definitely a pac-man type game.  after I stopped getting annoyed at getting stuck in the seaweed I started liking it more, but still not too fond of it. 

sounds like you may be the champ... this score took 2nd place last week at AtariAge

if you want more of a challenge use the A difficult setting, it makes your diver really slow & is very difficult.

I admit I never really tried expert much on any game. I already suck at games and if I did expert for fun when I was growing up I would not been able to play games with other people. I was limited as it was and still I'm. I strive to loose but since I suck at loosing expert would have only made me worse then I already was. Now that I post to highscore here I'm not afraid to suck as those I'm pitted against since there not directually playing me.

I'm glad you seem to have undestood that. Its true to all my family members and friends refuse to play me as it is. Now that we are all older none of them really care to play anyway anymore but espeshually against me. Getting better at a game in the past when they did play me would have been like cutting my own throught. I been cought trying to play nice which they hate and I play normal and they hate that to. From that you can see there are no options left for me in such a situation.

yeah which is why I use internet.  most people aren't seriously into gaming, but just play for entertainment.  even most people I know who play video games every day, don't like to compare scores or compete or have a challenge to boost their skills, they just play for entertainment & cultural fun similar to watching movies or something like that.

being entertained is like 1-way traffic whereas contesting & comparing acheivements is interactive & stimulating, & that seems more meaningful & more fun.  that's the real core of gaming.  if it's more entertaining that's just an added bonus

I do know a few actual gamers from the arcades here, & a couple people who are seriously into Call of Duty or League of Legends (which I don't play).  There are also fighting game tournaments at one place downtown but I have yet to participate.  I guess the place isn't really my style but I keep meaning to go try it out.   anyway yeah options are limited.

Well for myself I used to run a gaming clan I created. We played various pc and emulated games. I was known for almost never loosing. No one liked going up against me in Alien VS Predator 2 or jedi outcast or Battlefield 2 or even Mariokart 64 and so many more games.

I created the clan because joining gaming servers got me banned for eternity for being to good. I had gotten myself banned acrost the board on all exysting Alien VS Preadtor 2 servers as well as Jedi outcast servers. I never once cheated. People could not handle my skill. People who joined my AFG servers either stayed because they were excent players who had the problems I had or they got their ass beat and left off to find more mild players. On many ocashions people would coment upon entry of my servers that they hate playing thedarkbanshee AKA me and proceded to leave the server just after joining. At times I had empty servers before I got members because I scaired players off by kicking there ass yet I was attempting to go easy on them. Its a cure as well as a gift to be good at games.
