    Share with us a moment in a video game when you were so angry at the game that you felt like smashing the controller.

    I always feel like this when I'm playing a game and I'm stuck on just one damn level and can't get past it. I sit there forever trying over and over again but I just can't do it. I can't continue on with the game until I complete this level. I get even more mad when I make it near the end and then my character gets killed. Oh my god I start flipping out.

    Playing Assassin's Creed Brotherhood 2 weeks ago I played through the same memory 10 times in an hour before almost smashing my Xbox to pieces, and the remote of course, with a sledgehammer

    There's been plenty of times when games pissed me off. Gex 3 Deep Cover Gecko is one of the games that got to me when I was a kid, and I used to slam the controller down. :V I kind of messed up the PS1 controller a bit, though it still worked. :V

    We are playing a platformer game at the end of the mission and missing that final jump.
    Or playing a fighting game and getting an enemies health down to 1%.
    And them just coming back in destroying you.
    You console getting shot from all directions and Call of Duty.
    Constantly losing a match against the critical opponent and a fighting game.

    When you are facing a difficult moment (might be a boss, or a level) and of course you lose. It's the first time you face it, you didn't expected it to be so hard and you accept the defeat. But then, it happens: the cutscene before that moment plays again and there is no way to skip it. You have to watch it again, and again, and again, and again! Unskippable cutscenes in general are bad, but unskippable cutscenes in those moment are the thing I hate the most in a game.
    Whoever played Kingdom Hearts will probably agree with me.: "You'll never take kairi's heart!" is still in my worse nightmares.

    Whenever the game doesn't offer manual saves and you are progressing through a level... doing really well... can't wait for it to hopefully soon auto save then you suddenly die by some stupid mistake or a random enemy and you LOSE ALL YOUR PROGRESS. That's what makes me mad the most.

    Replaying the whole level just because the developers thought it was a good idea to only put autosave into the game - autosave that occurs once every hour.

    I completely agree. The game that I remember this most with was the first Deus Ex. There was a boss mission on there that I couldn't pass to save my life and I had to repeat everything leading up to it so man times that I just said forget it and quit. I eventually came back days later with a level head and beat the boss, but I feel like it should be mandatory that games include save options as much as you want to use them. Not everyone wants to play on survivor mode and see how long they can go between saves without dying. Some of us just want to make sure we don't have to replay the last hour of gameplay.

    Unfortunately when I was younger I did this a lot. Especially when I played Tekken or any high competitive game that has ranked matches of some sort. I remember buying a PS3 controller, and on the same day I broke it.... It was utterly stupid on my part. That's the beauty of growing up. I still get upset, but I have a lot more self-control. It used to happen also when I play COD or GOW.

    I can relate to Tekken! Spending hours trying to complete levels only to fail in utter rage and frustration. I also remember significant times I raged on Call of Duty as well. But the one that takes the cake is Grand Theft Auto, San Andreas. When CJ and Smoke are on the dirt bike and CJ has to catch the train and kill the gang members. I failed that mission so many times and just ended up going on a free roam savage rant. I remember that like it was yesterday: Smoke: "All you had to do was follow the damn train, CJ!!"

    Lol I hear you. Btw do you still play tekken these days. I can't remember the last time I actually played it. After my blueray drive stopped working, thats when I stopped playing. Eventually I will buy another ps3 blueray drive. Now I'm focused on the PS4. I really can't wait until Tekken 7 hits the market. The graphics seem a lot better. I hope they bring zafina back. It would be pretty awesome.

    It's been quite some time since I last played Tekken! One of those games I thoroughly enjoyed but sadly forgot about over time. Tekken 6, however, was my favorite in the series growing up. I owned two copies, one for PS3 and the other for PSP. Wasn't really a fan of Tekken 5 when it was released. After Tekken 6, it was during this period I started veering off into other games as well. I do have high expectations, like yourself for the next one. I felt with 6 the graphics could have been better, overall gameplay response as well. Either way, no matter how you slice it, it's an iconic game series that left a mark on my childhood significantly.

    The first game in a while that made me feel that way was Playerunknown's Battleground. When you get sniped from out of nowhere and you don't even have a remote idea from where the shot came 20 minutes into the game for the fifth game in a row...you can get pretty mad.

    In general, the "lose a massive amount of progress before having the chance to save said progress" matter is what tends to annoy me the most as far as actual mechanics go.

    For games that gave me this feeling all the time, though? This is why I stopped playing League of Legends. I began pretty early on and played primarily support characters in full queues to assist my friends (I generally found it a bit easier to keep track of the tasks a support had to manage when compared to the tasks of a carry, jungler etc.), but if there's going to be serious, legitimate infighting between friends - even actual siblings - in what would otherwise be a completely private room where we play against each other? And this happens multiple times? No thank you. The game stressed me out enough without having to deal with infighting and hostility between my friends.

    I struggled with certain parts of Catherine before discovering the "super easy" mode. I almost regretted purchasing the game altogether even though I really liked the story. No wonder they had to patch the game to make the difficulty less alienating in Japan...
