PGL Toronto Event Photos & Self Pitying

For those of you interested in the Canadian pro gaming scene, this weekend the Pro Gaming League came to the Renaissance Hotel, downtown Toronto.

Matt and I were on hand to check out the event and watch Halo 3 players far more skilled than ourselves pwn the heck out of each other. Within minutes of watching them play I realized they knew how to jump to areas I didn't even know you could jump to. I also bore witness to some outstanding sniper frags that I only wish I could perform. Some of these players could accurately snipe while jumping to these far off plateaus. Damn!

Now listen, I know that I'm pretty mediocre at Halo 3 (highest rank I ever achieved was 27), but these pro gamers made me feel like a total n00b. I got pwned just watching them. The lesson here is that no matter how good I think I am at a particular video game, there's also plenty of people out there that could mop the floor with me, put me through the ringer and then hang me out to dry.

I think I'm going to stick to offline play for a long, long time. I've got plenty of ego wounds to lick.
