If we've gotten into an argument, it's okay. I'm probably not holding a grudge against you. Why? Because I like you!

In Super Mario World (the GBA version, I always used Star Road to skip to Bowser's Castle (I couldn't beat one of the levels in World 3). I spent hundreds of lives trying to beat the level, so I was already frustrated, but then when I finally reached Bowser, I died. I reached him again, and then died. I thought it was impossible to kill him, as I couldn't even hit him. I tried to kill him every way I thought possible and it always did the same thing, nothing. So, I did what any 7/8 year old would do, beat the game and console that held it... physically. I sunk my teeth into my Silver DS Phat carving lines into its soft plastic and then slammed it shut breaking the right side of the hinge. It still works, in fact I used it for years until the 3DS came out, but I still use it for GBA games. Unrelated to rage quitting though, I later used a metal led pencil as a stylus because I couldn't find my stylus. I was playing Goomba Wrangler in Mario Party DS and carved a semi-circle into the glass part of the screen. In other words, my DS is worth $5 at most.

The only time I remember actually getting angry at a game was when I lost a game in Backyard Hockey. I was usually unbeatable in that game, so losing made me very angry. I was so mad I actually started crying (I was like 8 or 9). Other than that, I can't remember anything. I usually don't get mad when I play games.

The only rage-quit in recent memory was when I was playing Mario Galaxy 2 on the Flip Switch Galaxy (Or whatever that one is called) and I kept accidentally switching. I had like 40 lives left (more or less) but I just got a bit frustrated and turned it off. Then, I turned it on later that week to try again. I had no lives left for some reason (reset to 3). I was pretty annoyed to say the least.

I guess Monster Hunter 3 Tri. I couldn't beat the Gobul and after 5 or so tries I just gave up. I had other games on my backlog so it was awhile before I made my way back to MH3.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

Mario Party 2...
My friend's bro got a star from a hidden block on Turn 1. On Turn 2, it happened again! I said "F*** it, we're playing Double Dash now!" and we haven't played Mario Party 2 since... XD

I hate it when Bowser kills me -_- especially the time I played Paper Mario: sticker star and Bowser was in his final form with only ONE life left >.< then he burned all my stickers and killed me... Arghhh...

Probably anytime I am playing Mario Kart Wii and I am absolutely owning everyone in the race, all 3 laps and then inches from the finish line I will be pummeled with lighting, then a blue shell and then 1 or 2 red shells and end up pulling 4th or 5th. That is why Mario Kart Wii is by far my least favorite of all the MKs. They abused the Blue shell!!!!!!

Not exactly related to the games themselves, but way before I was introduced to console gaming I played simple PC stuff, most notably the Roller Coaster Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon series. Well the computer I used to play on had a tendency to freeze quite often, so if I didn't save often enough, I would lose a ton of progress and get very upset. I think I broke the slide-out desk once, but that's about it as far as physical damage.

Oh wait; I don't remember how but I did hit a Classic Controller so hard it wouldn't work anymore. Can't recall what I was playing at the time.

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

I'm like that on every single game except fo when I face Mr. Dream/Mike Tyson. In that case, I just stop and try later.

perfect dark: when sims stole your weapon by beating you, the screen would become very vague, it always made me feel sick and it took ages for the screen to be back "normal", in the mean time they were shooting you in your back with your own gun WHOHAGOHOMSLDHFOMH

Well I really only get annoyed when a mechanic/ boss is poor in design to the point of being difficult. With moments like those, it can mostly come down to dumb luck, or repitition, and I can be almost robotic when it comes to repitition, so yeah. Difficulty is fun though, and I often see my own error and learn from it next time, so it's no big deal. :3

that makes sense. I normally take a break and when I'm thinking properly again I give it another try.

Many bosses throughout the years (stuff like the Ansem-Riku boss fight in KH & KH:CoM, a giant spider boss in NG:DS, and Alpha-152 in DOA4 stick out, though).

Another thing that gets under my skin (although not enough to quit), is when I get through a really tough part of a game, I sometimes go back to an earlier area to unwind, and I manage to die there, after beating the hard area (that just really grates me).
