Just had a crazy 5 minutes..

14 Replies 460 Views Created 28-04-2012

Got to a point In Resistance 2 and just couldn't do It (playing on the easiest difficulty aswell) and In a blind rage just threw my controller at the wall. Ironically the minute I picked the controller up again and had another go at it (about the 10th attempt) I did It 1st time.. 2 minutes later the controller completely stops working and the right analog sticks comes off. 

Boy am I an idiot..
Was really enjoying the game aswell actually don't know what came over me, gonna have to order a new controller now before I can fire up the PS3 again.. great.

Had a moment like that my self once, did something similar, try to turn your negative emotions into positive ones though mate, cant do something? Try another method, if all else fails, take a 10 min break and come back to it.

 

But yes, that was a pretty stupid thing to do, but no matter.

Which part was it?

I've been through a few controllers before. I don't do it now as I can barely afford to go to the pub and buy new games so I just punch myself in the face instead (joke :D).

I'm normally quite a placid gamer and don't really let anything get to me.

 

However.......

 

When I was quitting smoking I lost my patience rather quickly and went through 7 controllers over some of the most silliest of things.  Still I have to look at the benefits - I feel healthier and have a bag of spare parts and replacement batteries! lol

I am the opposite i still regularly smoke have three fully working controllers and lungs that could be healthier. 

 

I have game raged Ps2 controllers in the past but nowadays if a game stresses me out it's count to 10 and ciggy time.

I stopped going thru the controller route once ps3 came out... Ps2 ones were easily exchangeable at $18 for a non licence replacement. Ps3ones tho are $NZ100 a pop, an expensive lesson learner helper on how to hold it in. Now I just make Kratos sounds thru my teeth lol and have finally learnt that that means take time out.... 10mins can work a dream

I got so frustrated on MW3 on my xbox due to glitchers and modders that I took the disk out of my console and snapped the damn thing.

Whereas I still have a Sixaxis from March 23rd 2007 in perfect working order no doubt due to my dainty hands and breezy nature. :p

I know the feelin because I get angry In some games. Where I try and passed a level and get stuck on It for a while. I take a break and then come back to It. Duke Nukem Forever was driving me mad In Insane mode. And did It at the end.

I myself have gone through at least 3 controller, where games have just got the better of me, when you get so far, then hit a difficulty spike it rather annoying. I now try to walk away from the game, so far so good.

yes it is annoying... annoying to the point where you reaily want to snap a few devs spines at the injustices of it all... But then you (finally) end up seeing the problem thru, and the exaltation you get from overcoming the hurdle is partly felt because you made it thru what in the end had to be made difficult to end up warranting being so hard.

I honestly thought I was going to snap my controller when I last had a go at demon's souls, luckily I am a weak little woman :lol:

Once my bf was playing a snooker game and got so angry at losing he look the disc out and snapped it!

Haha I never normally get angry when playing games, I always play my 1st playthrough on the easiest difficulty so I can fully appreciate the story ect.. but there's been a few points during Resistance 2 where I've had to double check that I am actually on the easiest difficulty!
I'm on the Idaho mission, just exited a cinema sort of building and come across 3 massive beasts all firing cannons at me (I'm not sure what they are called exactly, struggling to get into the story In all honesty) I've got my AI team mates shouting take cover but theres no cover about.. after about 20 deaths and a half broken controller later turns out It was better to just charge and shoot them from close up.. ahh well lesson learnt and a new PS3 controller ordered! :)

pmsl.

 

I've got frustrated at games many a time, but I have never contemplated physically damaging something to vent that frustration. I would be worried if I suddenly exhibited that type of uncontrollable behaviour to be honest ?
