I am the same with NHL. Last year I could beat the computer on the hardest difficulty easily. Now I have huge problems doing so and usually have to tone it down as it seems like every single pass is intercepted by the damn computer and my goalie just sucks entirely...
Haha! I have the exact same problems on NHL. My normal game isn't bad at all. But if one pass gets picked off my goalie just decides he's not playing. Bastard.
I have intense VGR. It's quite embarrassing really. I'm pretty sure losing on a game makes me angrier than anything else. You could run up and shoot me and I wouldn't be as angry as if you had beaten me at a game. Haha NBA 2k10 was the worst offender. I would block a shot perfectly and my players hand would just go straight through the ball. That game went out the window a couple times.
Never broken a TV though. Maybe one or two controllers. But that's it.
Glad I'm not the only one.
