    Worst I can claim is a flaky headset wire, sorry.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    Never out of anger but many a keyboard and one laptop have gone to digital heaven because of spilled beer/soda/water in moments of clumsiness...

    Yes. My hand because I slammed my first into it. It didn't require medical attention, but it was lightly bruised. I may also have slammed my open hand down on my desk a time or two.  Maybe strained my throat a little from cursing and swearing as well. (But I never direct such venom at the other player. I just say GG, or whatever, and blame the loss on myself. That's what galls me the most, actually.) It was a couple of years ago.  I was then a middle-aged adult. Judge me however you want. I don't seem to get that excited about it now. But still...

     

    Yes. You can say I'm immature or whatever, but I get emotional during pvp from Darkfall when my heart is pounding to WoW battlegrounds and  arenas.

    LMAO, no.  How retarded is that?  Breaking real stuff because a video game made you mad?  HAHAHA.  Sounds like something a spoiled little retard would do.

    Not an MMO but I broke a controller playing FFX - trying to get Lulu's Ultimate weapon.

    Dodge lightning x 200 consecutively on the thunder plains - and I kept failing at 180+. Wasn't mad at the game, just at myself, flung the controller at the wall and smashed it. Oopsy. First and only instance of game-rage.

    I lost about 2 wireless mice to games. They are still around, dusty, broken, sobbing.

    I feel pity for those who gamerage.  That is all.

    My blog is a continuing story of what MMO's should be like.

    My husband has broken about 5 keyboards over the years and a monitor, since DAOC days. These days he just yells at the screen, I got him a glass desk for his bday one year he has to use, so he doesn't dare slam anything down on it... lol.

    I sometimes get frustrated and annoyed over something in a game but I never rage. It's just not humanly possible to piss me off so much so that I end up raging :D But that's me being a very calm person in real life too :D So no, I haven't damaged anything.

    When I was playing TFC competitively, and there was money on the line, I was known to break mice. Never destroyed a keyboard or a CPU tower, but I've certainly punched my share of monitors, luckily to no effect. After I stopped playing FPS tournies or live events, things seemed to even out. Now if I clan play, I take things casually, show up only when it's convenient rather than restructuring my schedules, and focus upon finding ways for games to make me laugh. It's helped tremendously.

    Exactly the same here.  So many mice clicked their last as a result of my deaths that I'm embarrassed to even think about it.  For some, DP is measured in time and gold lost.  I measure it in obliterated mice and dollar bills.  Thankfully I've begun to mellow in my old age.  I've had my most recent one for almost six months now.

    have a really wierd story from my youth, freaked me out rightly bad.

    I was playing an old mmorpg game called Astonia 3(props if any of you recognize it), anyway they had some really bad death penalties in the game back then and i ended up dying and lost like 6 hours of grinding in pents(best area for exp) and i got sooooo mad and i had an empty glass cup on my computer desk and it just exploded/shattered.

    I ran out of the room screaming for my mom(lol). I didn't touch it at all, nor did it fall, just shattered.

    Some people's kids...

     

    In the 6th grade I used to go over to this guys house.  His name was Earnie.  Hahahaha.  Sorry....ahem....

     

    Anyways this guy would play Mortal Kombat.  And he never let me play I just had to watch.  However I would go over there just to watch and Id say, " Can I watch you play Mortal Kombat? " even though I had it at home too.  Watching him play was more fun.  Why? 

     

    Because he wasnt very good at it.  And he would scream and cry if he got beat by the computer.  And by that I mean literal tears of rage and anger.   I saw him break two controllers in his fits.  His mom would come in and say, " Earnie what is going on!? "   " THIS GAME IS CHEATING MOM!  I CANT BEEEEEEAAAT HIM! ".  I actually watched his mom leave the house one time, come back, with a new controller for him.  Spoiled little fart.  I said, " Are you gonna break that one too? ".   "IF THIS GAME DOESNT STOP CHEATING I WILL! " 

     

    Now I did usually hold in my laughter but it was a great source of amusement for me.  If he heard me laughing he'd yell " SHUT UP! " and Id say, " Sorry sorry....please continue. "  It was great.  I wish I had thought to bring popcorn.  This was before Youtube and that kind of thing, otherwise I would have so video taped it.  I swear it would have gone viral in a day.  It was just so great. 

     

    I miss watching Earnie play Mortal Kombat.  Sigh.....

    LMFAO,this reminds me of a guy I saw on Youtube playing Halo on Xbox Live and just going ballistic and throwing things.

    The only thing i've ever damaged was my thumb from a blister playing to much Super Mario 3!

  • DibdabsDibdabs FelvershamMember Posts: 2,704 Uncommon

    I've owned a computer of one sort or another for more than 30 years, and have never broken anything yet because of something so trivial as rage over a mere game.  What's to rage about?

    A couple of mice have been on the business end of my hammer when they've crapped out mid game.  Mind you, by "crapped out," I mean finally giving up the ghost and dying for good...before getting smashed by an Estwing.

    When I was a kid, a couple of controllers were lost to childish rage.  But, that kind of lashing out was short lived when I had to pay for the replacements out of my own pocket.
