Making my opponent look good.

Endgames or otherwise considerations based on static elements (like pawn structure).

Thinking outside the box.

I don't think just..attack against opponent' move.

Could you please explain how tactics actually help? I win games alot yet almost none are precisely because of tactics, the book tactics don't appear in game. So what is the use of tactics? It's a genuine question.

In a real game tactics and strategy work together.

Tactics lets you know which strategies may or may not work, and vice versa. Even if simple tactics aren't played during a game, they're usually behind the scenes, causing opponents to seek or avoid certain continuations.

I've had A LOT of games decided by tactics. Here are a few positions from some of my over-the-board tournament games:

 

 

 

I'm sure that if I looked at enough of your games, I could find tactical opportunities that you missed.

How exactly do you remember a game from 25 years ago???

A days old account with a perfect record in rapid chess asking beginner level questions.

Hmm.

Looking at one of your games it seems fine, but the situation is definitely suspicious.

I used to remember thousands of games. Literally, thousands. But I'm now in my 60s, and about half senile... so my mental archive is probably down to several hundred games.

Experienced players usually remember games in "chunks", not as a sequence of moves. There was an experiment with titled players where they were shown a position briefly, then asked to re-create it on a fresh board. When they got it wrong, it was usually a whole cluster of pieces and Pawns that were correctly placed relative to each other, but with the whole cluster shifted by a square horizontally or vertically.
