I thought this thread would be really interesting... :D

Please Forumers, share your talents. It can be anything in particular that you think you're really good at, such as playing guitar, piano, etc.

And if there's anyway for you to record it and send it in for us to watch, or listen, then do so! :D

Express your talents! :tmb:

I draw a bit.Nothing really impressive,though. And can never draw something exactly the way I imagine it:(
I could do some writing,I have an overactive imagination,although I'm usually too lazy to write down what I have in my mind.

Wish I hadn't dropped my electric guitar lessons.:hea: I'be playing the guitar by now,if I hadn't stopped. But I've no time to practice.:mad:

Um, good question. I can draw, and I'm OK with the Level Editor. I suppose I can also write reasonably well. :o

10-10-06, 13:35
Hmmm....:pi:

I definitely have a talent for looking after people (and animals). I once got into trouble for making a friend's guard dogs fall asleep on duty, just by sitiing talking to them and rubbing their ears :vlol:

I think I've got a talent for writing - if only I had the knack of getting inspiration on tap! Mostly when I sit down to write I end up staring a blank screen for ages. Then, when I can least afford to spend time in front of the computer, I'll be typing away like crazy for hours and come up with some ok stuff :rolleyes:.

Oh, and my greatest talent has to be for fussing cats and general soppiness when felines are around :cln:. I'm a world champion!

I am also fond of drawing.:)
Sometimes I think very few people can draw exactly what they want. As for me, I have the same problem :hea: + another one - I can never imagine in detale the future picture. That's why the result is always a surprize and a compromise

Nothing much of a talent. I really like to talk, about stupid things even repeat them till my parents screamed (virtually, of course). Well, my interests differed greatly from my family, so I basically went on about school experiences. In case my only sister didn't listen, I'd keep it in. From here I get the ability to talk.

I was the best debator in my class, till I joined art college. I guess that's my talent; to talk.

It is said, that I'm quite good at listening to people and that I'm able to understand their needs / feelings quite fast - often without them mentioning ;)
When it comes to handwork, I'm not so useful (which is one reason, why I am a computer programmer and not a brick-layer *grin*).

11-10-06, 10:34
I don't have any particular talent that is going to impress too many I'm afraid, Can't draw, sing, play an instrument etc. But I'm not bad at games requiring hand eye co-ordiantion, which does include Tomb Raider (Some of those forward jump/ backflip/ sidejump/ grab ledges combos are killers...) I'm also quite good at computer racing simulations, (the ones that stress realism like Grand Prix Legends) which is a degree of hand eye co-ordination I suppose. I'm decent enough at chess, although that's more from years of studying rather than natural talent. Not grandmaster or even master strength, but I like to think of myself as like the Energizer Bunny.


For some reason when I was at school I was great at basketball but abysmal at football. :whi:

On a more serios note, I like to think I can write poetry kinda good, well a few told me that, so not so sure.
