Don't you play some games with controllers? Like fighting games? So any mouse casualty? I play PC games occasionally, and have actually banged on the keyboard and mouse on my old laptop. Haven't been doing that recently, though. Last year, when I was playing CS, I encountered the last guy on the other team, and had a first shot on him. All of a sudden, my internet connection dropped, and I ended up dying after it reconnected. The whole room asked what the hell I was doing. The router almost died that night. That's... better? Is this out of rage or they were just broken from tear and wear? Not sure about the Atari but if I recall correctly, there's no way a NES or SNES controller could be more durable than a PS1 controller. I mean... they are literally thinner and smaller! I don't get it, either. Sometimes I question myself: I play games to relax, so why the hell am I getting more stressed out like this? It's true what you said. But again, sometimes things get out of control and rage happens. Not like anyone want that. Some games are pretty bs at some parts. They can be unfair and rage inducing, and some of us got caught by those emotional moments, and we implode. Eh, I guess it's something with keeping myself under control. Maybe after an exhausting day I just want to chill on the sofa, playing some games. But then the game pisses me off even more and all that steam just blew up. But I always try to keep my composure as much as I can, lol. Well, I guess it's a quick second of losing all sort of rationality and bam. Not that I deny my own part of the blame or anything. So you bite your controller instead of smashing them? That'll cost you more to replace your teeth than just buying a new controller. *Sigh.* Now I feel bad after reading this thread.
