I feel the same way. As far as being good in fps it depends alot on hand eye cordination and knowing how to move and where to attack from. Some ppl are so good that they can see where ur aiming when they are face to face with some guy and move out of his line giving them time to shoot. I can do it sometimes but im not that good. its alot of practice learning how people react to certain situations and how you should react to counter that.
and ya not all the good gamers are nerds. Some nerds could be better they just play so much they get burnt out and dont really try anymore. I consider myself a bottom to mid of the good side and I know that when I play way too much my skill goes down and down and i have to take at least a weeks break at that game.
