I got faster with the mouse by playing games, haha.
But mostly I learned indirectly.
Playing games led to scripting games which led to modding games which led to building games on my own.
Also back in the days, you had to know quite a bit about computers to get a game running on your PC if it was old.
For me it started from running own Lineage 2 "pirate" server and understanding of SQL and how the game data stored :)
I always admired the people who hosted private servers for games.
When I was young and played games full-time, I had neither the skills nor the money to pull that off.
