How am I all of a sudden so good?

    Do you ever have those moments when you’re playing a video game and you suddenly start playing much better than usual? A lucky fluke, if you will...

    This happens a lot with the rhythm games I play... there was one really hard level in Arcaea where I just didn't understand the pattern, then earlier today I was playing that level and it just clicked for me. I somehow got only like 6 misses (a lot of early/lates but who cares) and almost got a score of 9,800,000. Then I tried it again and somehow I managed to get a full combo through over half of the song and the whole time I was thinking "HOW AM I DOING THIS?"

    For me it's more having particularly good or bad days as a whole...mostly bad. It's difficult for me to concentrate so it's difficult for me to really be consistent with much of anything. On the days I actually can though, I play out of my mind - I was struggling with a particularly difficult platformer a few weeks ago and one night at 1 AM I just pulled it out and absolutely destroyed everything.

    No idea why, and I kind of hate it in all honesty, but it's whatever.

    Ah the famous "The Zone". Happens to me on rhythm games and roguelikes/shooters mainly. Noticed it first when I played Stepmania way back when lol

    The main thing I can recall was a time I was playing Smash with my brother a while back. I was using Pokémon Trainer and just randomly did an incredible combo as Squirtle. I even said to him "That was the best I've ever played Squirtle."

    Yeah, this happened to me when I play rhythm games. For example, in 'Cytus' I was playing in a dificult level which would always get me over 10 misses every time, and my score would be an 90% - 94%. But after a good night's sleep, I managed to earn a 100% score on my first try on the very next day. It feels so good to finally sweep through levels once you got a flow going.

    I had that experience with Muse Dash. Within my first 15 hours of playing I went from terrible to consistently making the leaderboard. It feels really good to reach the top 50 on a particular song!

    This happened all too often in ITG.

    I used to turn entire sets on their head with 1 or 2 plays because of this and it felt great.
