    Over there.
    I know I have.

    Almost threw my DS out onto the street. Screamed a lot. Yeah... So I just downloaded a save file.

    I've seen people get so mad that their veins are like, bulging out and 5 inches long. Is this normal? Or did I just see a lot of freaks at the bus stop just throw a tantrum for no reason at all?

    I did that a lot. I just throw my PS2 controller into the floor. But not to my DS, I just shake it for some random reason.

    Oh hell yes I have, I'm a really impatient person and have a bit of a short fuse.

    Usually it's when I've been replaying a bit of a game over and over for a few hours and just can't pass it, a few controllers have been jammed into the ground repeatedly.

    BTW Edit your poll to include a smashed controller option, I've never broken a console or game over being pissed.

    the banned
    Tons of times, but mostly to my gamecube controllers.

    It was especially in super monkey ball when I died about 12809756 times on a single level I just couldn't seem to pass.

    When I'm alone, I bang my controllers to the ground, quite hard, and
    swear. Come to think of it, this was probably how my A button got jammed on my old controller... [​IMG]

    BTW this was a great poll idea and yeah, i agree with mc dui, a broken controller/system choice would have really owned...

    BTW again, what does 1337 gamer mean? It's one of your poll choices

    I was pissed at golden sun and halo 2, just because of the ending. but later i was kind of happy i finished the two games. I enjoyed them both so much but the ending just pissed me of because there was no solid ending.

    Super Monkey Ball for Wii got me extremely frustrated on the more difficult stages.

    I occasionally get pissed off at games if they are inhumanly difficult are seemingly impossible. When I do, I just heave one heck of a sigh and do my best. If I fail, time to play another game...

    I don't recall myself damaging any of my gaming consoles/accessories due to anger at a game before, so yeah

    I get pissed at them all the time. Usually when they freeze on me constantly, or they have other bugs that cause me to lose data/health/lives/time. However I just pissed at myself when I suck at a game and can't get passed a part or something. I don't DO anything about it, but I get pissed at myself. Especially when I'm, say, doing a song on OTO2 or EBA or something, and I'm doing well and get passed a part I was having trouble with, and then I miss one that I KNOW I should've been able to easily hit but didn't, thus ruining my chance on that run through of trying to get an S on it.

    Well... when I was a kid, I broke my Gameboy Pocket screen with my head while playing power rangers... I remember it so well, it was some kind of pit that I was trying to jump over, but I was in a hurry so I died on the same spot like 7-8 times, and every time I got more and more mad. So it didn't take a very long time before I found myself breaking my screen with my head... =/

    After that i've barley squeezed my NES controllers so they make that sound they do when the yget squeezed [​IMG]

    A few times... I'll just get really mad because some boss or something is really hard. Then I threaten the game like "Oh crap, I'm gonna break your leg, you stupid piece of AHHHH!" I don't swear, just when I get to the last point I scream. Then I hit retry or something and beat him while I have almost full health, like it's suddenly super easy.

    I think that's why I'm DarthYoshi, I use my anger to my advantage. >=)
