Knowing about computer pro-gamers?

Share your culture and ask questions about other cultures. The idea is to learn something interesting while practicing English. Topics from this forum will slowly be moved to more specific forums.

Korean Pro Gamers

Post by Jason M. Ham »

Why do you think Koreans are so good at computer games? Is it something having to do with culture? A lot of people from different countries and cultures spend a lot of time playing and practicing, but Koreans are the best by far. Some people won't even play against Koreans because they know they'll lose. How did you guys get so good at computer games? It's amazing! :lol: Does Korean culture foster computer game-skill development or something?

Are Koreans best at World of Warcraft. I remember reading about some world championships but I thought that most of the contenders were from Europe or the US.

Personally, I'd like to know some secrets. I've only been playing for 2 months and sometimes I notice other players are much more skilled than I am...

I think Korean people play computer games well becuase the games

are melted so well in Korean culture. Even though most of popular games

are from the U.S., people including teen agers are eager to play well

like that's kind of competition that they should never lose.

In order to victory, they should practice(not simply play them..) and

that became one of Korean people's common amusement.

Of course some benefit from the culture, but another one might

hurt because of being under stress of losing games, or addictions.

I think Computer Pro-gamers are smart.
I'm not good at computer game, but I know some games like "StarCraft".
In doing that kind of games, gamers need strategy and sense.
It brings up the image of combat in San Guo Shi or something.
Are you good at that kind of computer gaams?
I want to do that someday.
