I'm sure this has happened to all of you at some point in your gaming lives. You've been playing a game and you're doing ok, getting by but not exactly tearing it up. Then all of a sudden you have some sort of flash of inspired gaming brilliance and you go from getting by to being a temporary gaming God. In my childhood this lucky streak was referred to as being 'in the zone'. I'm curious as to how others experience this. Here's a few examples of mine to get things started, and I encourage everyone to post their own stories. - Playing the original Tetris on gameboy, which I normally suck at. I suddenly found myself playing mcuh better than usual and got to beat my high scores. New top score is 96,240, and if you don't get over 60k my scoreboard won't even talk to you. - Solitaire, on my laptop. Suddenly found myself playing really well and broke my high score. Now stands at just under 9000. Been trying to get it over 9000 if only for joke purposes for weeks, can't beat my score so far. - Uncharted 2, playing online. Whether it was a lack of skill on the opponent's part or a sudden influx of skill on mine, I found myself completely untouchable. Of the 50 kills the team required, 29 of them were mine. Nobody could get close to me. Unfortunately this lucky streak didn't last long. In the next game some jackass threw a grenade at the door frame as we were spawning, killing us all. That's just a few examples I have of being 'in the zone'. What are yours?
