Breaking stuff over video game rage Apr. 27th, 2012 @ 10:58 PM Reply

Ever broken something in a fit of rage or just got really angry because of a game?

I was playing Phantom Hourglass on my DS, trying to beat the final boss. There is a part where you have to draw an hourglass and for whatever reason I just couldn't do it in time or correctly. I stabbed my stylus into the screen a few hundred times (The stylus tip was a nub after that lol) and ripped the top layer of the touch screen off. Turned out I had a warranty on it and just claimed that the screen protector took the screen off and got a brand new one hahaha.

Controller wise, i threw one at my sister, she was making fun of me because i was getting mad at crash bandicoot. Luckily controllers were wired then, i missed and it just mashed down on the hardwood floor. And i've thrown a PS3 controller in the air and swatted it sideways as it came down (haha what?) it smashed on the wall and fucked up one of the analog sticks.

Considering what i've done, I'd love to hear if you guys have done anything crazy like this!

I try not to get to pissed off, but I've thrown my PS3 controllers plenty of times, luckily its never messed up any of the analog sticks. It's like a dinosaur in my opinion, nothing can break it.

The game I was playing was Dead Space 2 doing my last Achievement "Beat Hardcore Mode" and you pretty much have to go through everything with only using 3 saves throughout the entire game. After playing it for the other modes I pretty much had everything memorized and was doing all right, but holy hell the creatures were unforgivably hard. I just sucked it all up and used my last save at the last chapter right when your about to go and fight the last boss. At this point the game is so damn broken, I couldn't stand seeing my guy dying over and over again by these godly creatures who pretty much 2 hits and you gotta do it all over again. I was already up till 3-4am can't really remember but I kept getting anxious and angry because each time I would get closer to the last boss fight a creature would kick my ass and it was like that for a good solid 5 hours. Till I snapped when I did get to the boss other than the creatures were kicking my ass by getting there the boss is pretty broken especially me with a Med.Health and a Large.Health. I reached her and died right when I had to finish her off by her surrounding herds I ripped my headset apart from my head and threw my controller with full force at the wall and it bounced back and hit my screen just as hard giving me a huge crack on it. I stomped to my light switch and slapped my hand down to turn off the light and just laid on my bed with a pillow over my head I was so angry that night that I didn't care what damage happened to my screen. It was a good thing I had warranty on it or my dad would have killed me for destroying it. (So I got a new one before he even noticed.)That was the ONLY time I couldn't control myself when I played a video game.

I've never done anything like that over a video game. If it stops being fun and just gets irritating, I pause it and go do something else for a while or turn the game off altogether. Who wants to be angry at a game? They're supposed to be entertaining and fun.

I personally never had an experience like that.But I have witnessed a similar situation.I was in a friend's house who was playing cod.I don't remember whether it was playing campaign or multiplayer.I was just watching him.Suddenly gets killed.He was so pissed off.He threw the controler on the ground. Another rage action of him was while playing one of the first missions in Assassin's Creed he couldn't complete that mission in which ezio has to beat his brother on raceto the top of a church. Again he was pissed off.He took the disc out and broke it.After describing me this,I fell down laughing.

I honestly can't think of breaking a single thing due to video game rage. I don't get angry playing games all that often, but if I do it usually just results in me banging my fist down on the arm rest of my chair or swearing at the TV. There has been a few times that I've wanted to throw the controller at the TV, but I have enough self control not to do something that stupid.

I've damaged a few 360 controllers and obliterated several PS1/PS2 controllers when I was younger. I also broke a PSP, but I can't remember if that was due to rage, clumsiness or both.

Yeah, I used to do it all of the time - I went through about a dozen PS2 controllers, because of various things going wrong. None of them could be played without something rattling around inside them. Fortunately, I managed to trade them back in to computer shops for games, after buying a new controller...

I've thrown the Wii mote a few times, though the silicon case tends to absorb the damage. I throw controllers towards pillows now, as opposed to the floor. 10-20 press ups later, I catch my breath and try again, so I've learned to control it.

I've squeezed controllers tons of times, and i've slammed down various controllers on beds and couches. Nothing major though, thankfully the beds are soft so the controllers just bounce.

I dunno, seems pretty pathetic to me. It's a video game, what are you losing your shit for? If that's how you react when you're entertaining yourself then how do you act in real life situations? Sure I've been frustrated at games before, but how hard is it to pause for a second and realize that you're about to break something that you own, that will cost money to replace? Use some common sense and punch a pillow or something if you're that annoyed.

I threw my internet modem because it would stop working everytime someone called, I didn't even have dial up. Other than that I can't think of anything off the top of my head.

I threw my DS stylus once and lost it because I was frustrated with Super Monkey Ball. I've also stabbed down into the touch screen hard and scratched it, luckily never broke the actual DS though. I've also thrown a 360 controller against a wall before, can't remember what game it was (might have been Call of Duty: WaW - thats the most frustrating campaign I've ever played.)

I've also slammed my headset down a few times playing Battlefield. I just can't stand that Russian motherfucker whining at you every time you're losing a round. "YOU ARE RUSSIANS FOR FUCKS SAKE. GET IT TOGETHER. FOR RUSSIA. THEY ARE WINNING. WE ARE LOSING." And who can forget "THE ENEMY HAS SET THE CHARGE." That just pisses me off.

Why would you even want to play if it pisses you off so badly? Just take a breather or give up on games if it makes you have a mental breakdown when you play the damn things.

Playing Pokemon XD I kept losing this one battle then wasted a Master Ball so I bit the GameCube controller wire and it tore through the protective cover.

Got angry at my Wii while I was playing either NBA something or Guitar Hero and chucked the Wii remote at my closet door and fucked it up pretty bad.

I've never broken anything game related out of rage. I have broken a lot of stuff accidentally. Possibly 30+ controllers, a few game systems, and a couple discs and carts. That's all that comes to mind at the moment, but you get the idea.
