Just like the title, I want to know what's your reaction when you lose/died in a videogame.

Mine (not always though):

Depends. Some games are just cruel with checkpoints and sends you back halfway through the stage. At that point I just give up on the game and try again later.

It really depends on how many times I'm forced to redo the objective.
I get extremely annoyed when the character(s) repeat the same dialogue instead of the game recognising that I've seen/heard the dialogue and skips playing it. Some games do indeed skip the dialogue (Note: Dialogues, not cinematics, most games allow skipping of that).
Edit: Voted the first 4 options. I've never had the urge to throw a controller at my tv... (Though I can see why some people do =D)

Where's the "...ugh. *tries again*" option? Because that's usually me. Somewhere in between first and second. Third happens too, but it's rarer. I usually reserve that one for when I think it's not my fault but either teammates, cheating AI, just terrible luck or something similar.

It depends entirely on if its my fault or not.
If its my fault i'm usually pretty timid. But if its the games fault I get a little aggravated. if it continues to happen I usually get pretty pissed. I've thrown a controller out my window before (and if th window wasn't open i guarantee i'd have been buying a new window).

I don't have much trouble with anger management on videogames, I usually just suck it up and try again and again accompanied with a "fuck", a grunt or something like that until I do it, but some games like Demon's Souls make me very angry that I ragequit a couple of times(now I'm more careful) but that's all.

As many posters above me, it seriously depends on the degree of failure and how much it sets me back. If I failed for a silly reason and it doesn't set me back much, I have no problem starting over. If the failure did set me back, I am angry, but mostly at myself (however I do vocally blame the inanimate strings of code called "enemies", "ledges" or whatever caused my demise, usually with cussing included). If I failed but said failure was pretty darn funny, I usually laugh and gladly restart. If the failure was not due to my own wrong-doing but due to poor programming, at first I ignore it, but if the problem is recurring, it sends me into a blind rage which usually ends with me throwing the controller/handheld console at the nearest soft surface (so that it doesn't break :yay:) shortly followed by a brief period of venting and finally restarting the section - the rage gets worse each time the problem occurs. :P

Sonic 06 is the bane of my existence and the official cause of the first-ever argument I had with my girlfriend. We still wish to finish that game, we just can't be arsed to play it though... ;)
I'd actually like to play it with friends some day. It sounds hilarious. I watched the entire pokecapn marathon let's play of it. Those guys were just going insane near the end.

It's not fun. Nothing about it is fun. If you don't want to lose those friends, don't do it. :angry:
