When I get frustrated with a game, my anger progress with these three steps:
1. Scream
2. Throw the controller/stylus
3. Turn off the game and mutter some not so nice words.

After an hour or so I return and play again.

When i get mad at a game since I can't beat it or get past a simple part thats screwing me over is:
1- Yell "NO!"
(Optional: throw the controller and/or bash it!)
2- Cuss-out the game. Call it names and point out it's flaws whether their minor or big and make it a HUGE deal.
3- Go into denial.
4- Require revenge.
Yea, this happens occasionally... unfortunately.

When I get frustrated here is what I do.
1.Yell at the game.
2. point out all of the flaws.
3. turn it off.
An hour later I come back with a stronger determination to defeat the game.

I rule when it comes to games. So deal with it.

1. I cuss.
2. I turn the game off in a fury.
3. I cuss some more.
4. I leave the game alone for a day or two.
5. I come back to it with fond memories.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

Normaly I stay totaly cool. But giving away easy points in Grand Slam TennisĀ“s online mode drives me insane. For a second I tried to brake my remote into two pieces or I jump up and shout "YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS"-alike stuff. I am glad no one is taking a video when I am playing ;)

I have no patience. I give up & play something else. This is probably why I have never gotten that good at games!
I have too many games where I have not persevered past the first few levels.

LOL You guys make me seem like a zen buddhist! I'm quite patient, so I usually just continue (lives permitting) until I succeed, while trying to improve om my previous mistakes. If I'm losing badly at a game I switch it off, regain my composure (maybe make a relaxing glass of chocolate milk :)) and try again.

I eventually did beat Jak 2 (100%), and that has to be the most frustrating game I own!

Yeah, Jak 2 was pretty hard. It took me quite awhile to beat that. (Definitely got mad at times.)

I was playign Swords & Soldiers earlier, when the pointer constantly shook. I began to flip as my spells where constantly miss-placed. I began to toss the controller at walls and such, before realising the reason why all this was happening. It wasn't a fault in the game, but...

The casing on the Wii Remote's sensor was bent out of place and the plastic casing was beginnig to snap off place after I flipped playing Punch Out!! an hour beforehand and did a simular thing.

My life seems like a children's tale.

I once cracked my old pink GBA's led screen with my rubber mallet; no joking! And all over because I couldn't catch a dang Corsola in one of my Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire games; was because of the timming in the pressing the button to pull up the fishing rod! And for about a good hour that's when I said to heck with it... so I went POW with the mallet! :P

But still doesn't bother me to this day; for I got over it quickly! ;)
It sits in my closet with my croked SNES that's all yellow & doesn't work!

That's your most frustrating game? You've been fortunate not to buy anything worse thus far. It could get hard, sure, but I've DEFINITELY played MUCH worse!
