Re: Angriest you've ever gotten playing a videogame?
I think the last time I actually broke a controller was back when I was a kid. Think it was on one of the WWF wrestling games for the N64. Just remember some of the wrestlers on campaign would always reverse your moves, yet when you did it, it would hardly work, could never get moves in at all. Still, the controller sorta worked, just had a shitty left trigger.
Nowadays when I've played a multiplayer game for a while I can usually sense when I'm starting to get annoyed. It's usually after a lengthy period of play(A few hours), it's at night and I've pretty much just been playing that nonstop. Then things start to slide and go wrong, losing matches, deaths etc.. That's usually a good moment to stop playing.
Also if you can't get past a boss, particular stage etc., I usually leave it for a few hours, or overnight. Then come back to it the next morning to succeed. Most recent example of that would be in Dark Souls. Tried a few times to defeat Gwyn one night, couldn't do it so I left it til the morning. Couple of tries later and I nail him with a few beautiful counters and he goes down.
