    OK, my 8th PS3 controller in 24 months met it's maker today.

    Normal drill, COD MW2 multiplayer. I told the controller to stab this dude, it decided to ignore me.

    Therefore it had to die. So I stamped on it. Twice. Hard.

    A testament to the fact these things are solid - it's in several bits, and the bloody light is still on and it works to a degree....

    Go Sony.

    It's costing me a bloody fortune! I smashed a picture with the last one as well, launching it at the wall. The missus doesn't find it funny.

    Things like that happen and I just see red.

    And that's the result...

    Not broke any controllers yet but have sworn profusely at the screen and thrown my 360 controller at the sofa in disgust numerous time. Also hitting the off button on the console hard enough to push it off its shelf is another favorite venting motion, lol

    ha!! Someone does get angry don't they! 8 controllers, i'd be proud not ashamed. It means you'll have spent more on controllers than the console, hehe.

    Were you close to a 25 kill streak or something?

    Nope, just your average game - it just pissed me off when someone 'stabbed me up blud'!

    I wouldn't mind normally, but it was unfair as I had already pressed the right analogue stick.

    So I assumed it must be broken, and therefore needed breaking more.

    And then had a fit of rage. I smashed a telly with a previous controller.... and then claimed on the insurance for it! lol.

    Sarah, you're right, anger management a must. I'm quite a chilled out guy normally and take most things on the chin - but that game brings out the worst in me.

    The only game that has ever wound me up to that extent is Street Fighter 2.
    When I was at college we used to have a Street Fighter arcade machine in the common room. I was the king, no one could beat me.
    Until one day I was down to my last 20p, stuck it in the machine thinking I'd be on it all day beating all challengers.
    First up was some geek boy. He jumped on the machine and spent the entire game pulling the controller and hitting the buttons wildly, and very randomly. No skills whatsoever!
    This confused the hell out of me and I lost the ability to pull off any dragon punches whilst he was luckily hitting me with flying kicks.

    Anyway, I lost. And pure raging anger caused me to punch the glass that sits infront of the computer screen. It smashed and my hand bled. A lot.
    Today, more than 10 years later, I've still got the scar on my hand.

    I had no more money, and a whole afternoon of standing in the common room watching other people play the game that I was addicted too.

    That was a really dark time for me. :(

    Welly... That video you posted (if real, which it looks like it is) is absolutely bonkers!!! Funny, unbelievable, mental, even scary in a way. The lot!
    That kid has some SEEERRRRIIOOOUUUSSSS issues!

    He's the sort that will buy a machine gun off the net and put holes in all the people who live in his town, just because he got killed in the game.
    Seriously, he would.

    It is truly infuriating though! The amount of abuse I give some people is untrue.

    I also hate campers.... lol. They get much abuse.

    The dude in that video is going to struggle in life isn't he! 17 hours too! Chuff me, i get bored after about 3hrs max. And i've never felt the need to make a milky youtube video after i've died either.

    And as for getting mad, I used to get so mad with games, sports etc but one day just decided to laugh and ever since I have never got annoyed (other than calling people gay when they camp). Makes it much more fun...you should all try it, although i think Sony and MS would disagree with me, they're making a killing out of peripherals, lol.

    One man army has it's place. It's just not on Team Deathmatch. It makes you a lethal adversary in games like Search and Destroy on big maps.

    I tried that - I can't help it. I see red and then the anger takes over. One day I will actually turn green and go out smashing stuff I swear.... lol.

    I know the feeling mate, I was number1 at my college back in the day, and I never gave my opponents 3 rounds. I got so cocky, this guy wanted it out with me 'outside' lol, I got him suspended though the twat.

    Now I have the urge to kick your ass! HA-DO-KEN!

    My new turtle beach headset and controller got thrown around some before I turned it off in disgust, luckily the missus was a work for another hr or so, so had lightened up a bit by then. lol :aggressive::aggressive:

    HAHAHA, thats honestly the funniest thing i have seen in quite some time

    The problem i have is i end up arguing with the missis if i have a bad game on COD, i would advise people to start playing bad company as its much less stressful aswell.:sadlike:

    So, the question is who is getting this:-:eyebrows:

    Yeah, Black Ops is being made by Treyarch as opposed to Inifinty Ward. I like World AT War to be fair, but I prefer using modern guns.

    Here is a youtube vid of the new Black Ops multiplayer gameplay I found. It looks, quite simply, AMAZING!!!!!

    Watch in 720P HD.

    Seriously mate, I would hurt you really really bad on street fighter 2.
    I'm talking hurricane kick, followed by a medium sweep and a sliding back fire ball combo.
    Then while you're dazed you'd get an uppercut and a two connection dragon punch combo for afters. Round over.

    "YOU WIN. PERFECT."

    Cheers.

    Part of your problem there welly is you have a ps3!!
    nah just kidding! on the xbox its just as bad. I to feel like smashing my up controller as well! I even watch the kill cam and I never even get a shot on the basterds even though I have the sights aimed on them way before they get me! never got to the stage where I would film my self punching the wall tho!

    That black ops with the rc bomb looks amazing! looking forward to that, bit like the predetor missile
