Does anybody here suffer from Video Game Rage?

What is video game rage (VGR)? Well its when you get extremely pissed off from losing repeatedly and you take it out on the controller by throwing it on the floor. Then after you calm down you feel like a seven year old who throws a temper tantrum. I broke several controllers that way.

I'm not proud of it. I try to control it. But some times a run into the most frustrating things in a video game. For example, fighting Shao Khan in the new Mortal Kombat game. For those of you that played Mortal Kombat should understand that Shao Khan is a cheating whore. He consistently uses that ******* hammer which takes a lot of energy, he consistently uses the Kombat Rage (from MK vs. DC Universe) which makes it impossible to set up a decent Kombo and do any real damage, and your playing as Raiden (who is the most frustrating character to control). I had to put it on easy mode just to defeat the son of a bitch. Lets just say my XBOX controller makes a weird ratting noise now and the B button sticks sometimes.

So, anyone else suffer from VGR?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Let just say if it was a real disorder I would be one of the most serious cases of it. Certain games make me rage harder than others but UFC 2010 has to top the ******* list!

Runners up: MW2 and Black Ops, NHL GLITCH GOALS!, COD4 hackers, little kids on mics.

Seriously I could tell a million stories, its ****ed because outside of my xbox I am a super calm and patient person, but as soon as those turtle beaches and grab that controller... its a new person lol.

I hadn't assaulted a controller for years until about six months ago. I was trying to play Madden on All Pro and couldn't take it. After yet another turnover on downs I threw it to the ground and stomped it in half. It was on PS2 but it was less than a few months old

I used to do this all of the time when I was younger but I don't anymore. The 1 time I did it in the last 7 years maybe was about a year ago playing Madden and I kinda tossed the controller and broke a button. I just stared at it thinking.... Wtf... why would I do that?

I just shout at the TV and swear a lot. Never thrown a controller or broken anything though.

One guy I played with regularly threw his controller at the tv one game, heard the screen smash over the Mic. He then picked the tv up and through it into the wall (at least that's what it sounded like) then didn't come back online for 6 months or so.

Funniest shit ever.

I've never broken a TV. And never smashed a controller but I have made a couple a bit buggy. Like they cut off at random times. My latest trend is twisting the controller. And curse extremly loud. Haha I yell some pretty messed up stuff!!

Glad I'm not the only one that finds the controller twist very satisfying. Give that sucker hell and it still works somehow
