> You are right.. and the worst thing is when you miss the wide open shots ridiculously in these games...
but the scripting is also as bad, if not worse in the FIFA games career mode so I tell my self just live with it.

This is from a game forum that someone posted. Is using 'as' like that grammatically correct?
I assume this means scripting is bad as much as missing the wide open shots ridiculously. Am I right?

Thank you in advance.

Not exactly. Here, as means equally and is grammatically correct and natural. We might also say that it's just as bad. It has the same meaning.

The phroase "missing the wide open shots ridiculously" is wrong. Ridiculously doesn't make sense there, and wide open should be wide-open because it's a two-word adjective (like two-word).
