How much real-world damage have you done? (raging...)


#1

This happened last year, around June/July. It was my wont to throw my 360 controller fairly hard on the carpet if I got my ass kicked particularly bad in online SFIV. One night my roommates (my bro and his gf) are out doing their thing somewhere. I’m at home having a happy old time with Rose, at least for a spell. Eventually I lose a large number of frustrating matches in a row, and slam my controller against the floor at an angle I could never again duplicate, which then shoots right up at the adjacent angle and smashes my bro’s gf’s 47" LCD 1080p television. Since then I’ve been giving her $100 a month until it’s paid off, and I had to take my plasma set out of my room and move it downstairs to compensate. Lame. :shake:

I bold and underlined the problem.

That said, I’ve only destroyed one pad over the last 10 years, and it was about 9 years ago. I get frustrated, but never angry enough at fighting games to need to wreck shit.


#3

Which is why I’ve never ever tossed a controller in rage. Helps that the floor over here is made from ceramic tile.


#4

0.00$


#5

Your telling us this, why?


#6

2 controllers (xbox, and xbox 360), a keyboard, about 4 mice (doesn’t help that they’re wireless), and 4 remotes. This is, of course, over my entire life.

I drink and smash because I love.

Because he wants to make sure he is not the only “idiot” who has done something like this.


#8

OK. Now I understand.


#9

Never quite sure if these are troll threads.

I did tilt one of those coin machines in a Dave and Busters once though. It started blaring sirens so I ran the fuck away. Does that count?

This is why you play with a stick.


#12

None.

Anyone who ever grew up on those old Sega Genesis controllers learned never to toss their pads around. Those things counted as deadly weapons.


#15

Don’t tell the boy lies.


#16

Anger Management should start advertising to gamers.


#17

Haha, good point. Learning a high-tier would probably be better than turning him into a stick tosser, but it would be hilarious to see a TE fly.

Those Genesis pads were awesome weapons. Nice and weighted on the edges, too. Like a plastic boomerang.

There’s just the right amount of faggotry and stupidity these days so its hard to tell anymore; they just blend together

I feel like smashing my pc everytime I see someone write in pink text. Don’t get me started on the horrible things I do puppies when I see yellow text…
