    Do you just relax and have fun or do you feel a bit strained because your only focus is to win and you get easily PO'ed when you lose?

    It usually depends what I'm playing. If it's a strategy game like Starcraft, I'm usually on the edge of my chair with a headset yelling shit at my friend who sucks, but if it's halo or something that requires no thinking whatsoever, I usually just slouch back in my couch and put my legs up while listening to Red Hot Chili Peppers. Either experience is awesome.

    Depends on what type of game it is.

    Although, I've never really been pissed off when losing (Unless the level design is crap and a really dick move has been played). I'm usually pretty relaxed when playing online shooters, and a lot of the time I feel as though I could actually fall asleep in my chair.

    If it's something like an RPG, I tend to just lie in bed whilst playing.

    Same with Starcraft, ill be focusing never taking my eyes off screen for a long time, except for ums maps. I never knew you can use headset in starcraft????

    If it was fps games, i just listen to music and pwn at the same time.

    I'm the type of person who easily gives up on games, even if I just screw up once. I usually DO fail hard at every game I try, leading me to getting pissed off and yeah. I even broke my DS's top screen once when I got pissed, I punched it.

    RPGs make me very antsy anymore. Oddly enough, Dragon Quest IV does not give me that kind of feeling. It only happens with newer RPGs.

    its not a starcraft directly. u would use a third party program like ventrillio or teamspeak.

    and yeah i'm the same. i get really pumped when playing intense games like sc (especially 1v1) or halo. gets my blood rushing hehe. but other games, i like to set bak and relax (like rpgs and stuff). though i don't usually listen to music while playing. i like to focus.

    Well, not really that kind of headset. I usually have my bluetooth connected to my phone while I play. But yeah, for ums maps I can be doing really anything, since they require really no skill (except for how amazing I am at sunken defense [​IMG] )

    Yeah... I am with all games except RPGs, so I pretty much don't play them.

    Yeah, I feel comfy. I get frustrated with some games, but not many. It depends on how good I'm playing, and the current mood I'm in.

    I'm very relaxed while playing any game. How aren't you relaxed when playing RPGs? They almost put me to sleep...
