I know many of you play video games (stating the obvious i know). How many of you used to be like THE BEST at st least one game, and a younger sibling, who used to suck at everything you could do, suddenly beat you at your own game!!
Now for me I had two options: one I could be the loving caring older brother who mentors his younger brother and says "good job, see I taught him everything he knows! 8) "........ OR....... I could be the jealous, angry, sore loser type of brother who harbors a secret hatred for his brothers newfound success and angrily mutters to himself ("muther f#[email protected]

%#$*, I will crush you into the dust you filthy little maggot!!! :evil: ").
Eventually, I chose the first (and better) option. But unfortunately, I tried to fight the shame of losing to a 12 year old who plays video games ALL DAY with his over abundance of free time, with the second option. But rather than look like a royal prick, I just stopped caring and let my llittle brother enjoy his time in the spotlight thinking "Someone else will beat him eventually (I hope)."
Any one else experience a similair strong sibling rivalry? Now this isn't limited to just video games. It could be sports or anything else.
