>>2905063 I've thrown or hit controllers before, but I've never been strong enough to actually break them. When I was young they were like the NES controller, or the SNES controller, or the saturn, ps1, and n64. The only piece of any of those controllers that was even remotely fragile was the joystick on the n64 and I never tried to pinch and pull that thing in anger.
By the time actually fragile controllers like the Nintendo Wiimote came out, I wasn't a child who would throw shit anymore, so there you go.
When I was little I sat sideways in a loveseat/couch thing when I played snes games (most memorably, DKC3) and would always push on the side really hard with my legs. Ended up fucking the frame up really bad over time; we ended up replacing it.
i tard raged once and smashed the shit out of my ps3 controller on the arm of my chair when i was playing re4 and super slavador cutted my head off then i took the peices and stomped on them until it was a big broke pile of shit and then i felt real bad abot it lmao :D and i broke the screen on two gameboys when i was a dumb little kid i still have them and use them for parts now so it's ok. so the morel of the story is dont be a spergmonkey and break your things and you will feel better ok
>>2905063 Super Punch Out Rick Bruiser made me destroy my sweet ass SN Pro Pad, immediate regret and shame set in after throwing it.
That one Li Long Edge Master mode fight in Soul Edge were it's six enemies in a row with almost no regen between fights made me bust up a PS1 pad. I don't think i've thrown a controller after that, ever.
Last week i was in my bed playing rocket league in my laptop, so anyways, my teammate scored an own goal in a very competitive game, so i raged at his stupidity and threw a punch to the edge of the bed besides me so i could hit something that would not break and still let go of my rage, unfortunately my cell phone was there and i ended up breaking the glass.
>>2905063 Being a fucking man-child who let vidya get to him at one time.
That and: NetHack+StarCraft (hurt some keyboards and a screen) Tetris Attack (Aiming for 99999 in 4 min on endless) Ikaruga (Arguably ret, tho I played on the Playcube and not on the DC) Soul Calibur 2 (Not ret, tho I play a lot of old games using PS2 sticks) Ninja Gaiden (Not ret, tho I must have been pissed because the old xbox controllers where beasts)
I'm past getting angry at games. Such destructive impulsiveness made me feel really bad afterwards Not to mention controllers are fucking expensive. If you get that emotionally into a game, it's time to put it down for a while and cool off. Games are supposed to be fun, not infuriating.
RE:2 Perfect one sitting run, no save, going for highest rank. Died in the fucking train. A stupid stupid death. Entirely my fault. I ripped/twisted my ps1 controller in half and never played re:2 again. Cant remember why, but also put a snes contoller through a wall by accident, random bounce after pelting it at a concrete floor. Zero damage to snes control. Not even a scratch. Best controller ever.
I was playing WWF Warzone and my uncle beat me by slapping the controller out of my hand for the third time of the hour so once he was done and left, I put "his controller" in front of our bulldog at the time who loved gnawing on the things.
Playing SMB2 on the first model GBA in the backseat of a car when I was about 7, got so mad that I headbutted the screen and it broke instantly and had a big black spot.
Had an original DS and was playing the first legend of Zelda when I was 10, got so mad that I slammed the DS shut, when it didn't break I slammed it shut until the screen broke.
Playing Pokemon emerald on a different DS that I can't remember how I broke that had the top screen broken as well, was at the competition part and kept losing so I snapped the DS in half, the bottom part kept working and I was playing Pokemon on a lower half of a DS for a few weeks.
I've broken countless controllers and can't even remember how except a few, one was Halo 2 online, twice, about four Gamecube controllers, can't think of anything else but I'm almost positive there's more.
I have no defense and I've still never beat the original Zelda.
I never broke a controller once, but one time I was playing such a shitty, frustrating game that I got so pissed that I actually bit the cartridge with my teeth, ripped it out of my sega genesis, and spat it across the room into my living room wall.
Not over Retro Games. People really overrate the difficulty of a lot of older games by a wide margin. Not that hard when you're a adult and understand a wider variety of gameplay concepts, combos, item usage, etc..
Only destroyed a controller over Soul Calibur 2, a competitive game.

WHEEEEEEEEE!" >parents come flying in and beat the shit out of me >buy him a new controller and video game to apologize >still feel the satisfaction when that controller connected nearly 20 years later
Never have broken a controller, almost have broken a nonretro one but yeah that doesn't count cause fuck multiplayer online games. Usually when a game frustrates me, I'll usually put it down and take a small break and try again, and if I can't pass the point I couldn't before, I put it down for the night.
>>2911036 How good is the game? I thought the DC one was interesting. Never read the comic, but yeah. Only reason I'm asking is cause I've heard the DC one is the best and that the rest are shit.
But my dad and his brothers (40+) do and have tantrums and shit playing Soccer video games. When they had the ps1 one of them throw the controller to the flor and it bounced back to his hands. Sometimes they took off the disc and started jumping on it Recently one of my uncles punched the door and left a fist mark.
>>2911015 Objectively, I realize that my cousins were dirt-poor and that their constant taunting about how my grandparents constantly favored them was just them 'enjoying the moment' since they'd go back to their dingy swamp house in DeQuincy and shit in a literal outhouse. But when you're a kid it's hard not to focus on the rejection of being consistently passed over by family members or to be the bigger man when someone's ridiculing you.
>>2905184 Ah, my little cousin was about 8-10 at the time and when losing he used to bite his SNES controller. You could even see bite marks on the plastic.
I'm no better than him, as a kid I used to smash my Master System controller and as a result the d-pad came off. And I still get mad at games sometimes, from sulking when friends kick my ass or raging when I lose while playing online games. I wish I could keep calm, but I have difficulties dealing with failure and I admire the many people in this thread that keep their composure.
not retro but i spiked my controller into the floor when i was playing Siren Blood Curse on ps3 and it pretty much exploded, because when you're being chased the games frame rate drops down to about 4-5
