If you're mad at the game, you should obviously stop playing it for a bit. Anger affects your performance negatively. I like to play some Neverwinter Nights when I get mad at whatever online game I'm playing.
Not true at all. When I'm with my friends during a game night and I get on a losing streak, I'll start getting really fucking mad. Shouting, swearing, pulling my hair out, punching walls, throwing shit, things like that. I go right back to the game, still pretty pissed off, and start to dominate everyone easily. I play better when I'm angry.
>>315368920 Depends on the anger. "Frustration" just leads to sloppy play. "Killing Intent" leads to 300% better results. I got so mad once that I set a high score that I couldn't beat for the next 3 months.
when my team gives up why should I continue to waste time? honestly? for example in dota I'll farm my ass off with anti yet my team will shit the bed all around me which forces me to farm off the jungle , gank and lane.
In CSGO my team will start playing it like CoD at times I'll be grouped with people like this. Same situation I'll either follow someone or tell people to follow or at the very least take my advice.
I hate the feeling of people purposely fucking up for no reason or refusing to listen to advice on video games I just hate it so much I spend the next hour drinking another cup of coffee, watching television or masturbating to get rid of the frustration.
Yes. Lately it's because of the lack of good teamwork in Metal Gear Online. I'll be telling my team I see an enemy and to give me cover multiple fucking times but instead they leave me to die when I get ambushed, even worse is when I'm in the process of getting fultoned within my teammate's line of sight and they don't do anything.
I play CSGO regularly, and those matches were you know right from the start you're gonna sit there for 40 minutes getting your shit kicked in with your team all yelling Russian into their microphones I sometimes concider ragequitting but still don't. Because cooldowns and shit.
>>315367596 Well i never quit in a rage, but there times when i come to the sudden realization that the game is completely pointless and i just quit.
This usually happens with DOTA. I don't play it a lot, but there are periods where i play it constantly. Then there comes that match where your teamates are incompetent and blame you for everything where you don't even have the energy to argue with them, and you realize you didn't have fun for the past 5 games, and that's when i quit the game and don't play again for months.
whenever i get frustrated or upset with a game i just put myself in time out and go do something else for around 15mins to an hour.
if i'm playing a game like ffxiv and i'm trying to catch up on capping credits, getting drops, or just generally grinding and it's annoying the fuck out of me i just turn off mentally and go into autopilot. gone full fucking zombie
That game is fun but there are those faggots you are talking about that really think the tourney scene is real. I stick to the foundations of the game and just blow those kikes out of the water. It looks retarded when people fight spinning in circles, fucking autists.
>>315367596 Only thing that is truly rage-inducing in games is online multiplayer inherently fucked up by lag.
>MOBAs to a lesser extent
why are these games always where you see the biggest rage videos? Yes, for one because they are popular multiplayer genres and a shitload of people play them, but also because their core gameplay is broken by lag that cannot be avoided.
Until we have fiber optic everywhere in the world, I will avoid these type of games like the plague.
I oftentimes rage when i come up to enemies who are supposted to be walls that force you to learn mechanics. I rage, but i try again in this scenario.
But it gets worse when i face really hard enemies like KH2 Final Mix Data battles on Critical Mode. Xaldin was the worst offender here. Things like that make me actually hurt myself. I bite my hand. Really hard, sometimes it bleeds. That can't be a healthy reaction to losing at a video game. I still manage to pull through, but if it wasn't for somehow hurting myself, i'd definately quit too.
I think it's because i have a huge inferiority complex. If i fail at something as easy as video games, what good can i be irl?
Ironically, outside of this, i'm that much of a fucking downer at all.
>>315368158 >tfw fight a boss and just keep losing >start to get more and more irritated and making mistakes with dodging his patterns >can't beat him for two straight hours so I just say fuck it and go to bed >fight him again the next morning >I beat him with no issues >mfw
>>315370185 Actually, this is based on the experience of me enjoying playing multiplayer smash with people at tourneys/get togethers versus playing it online. Also various other FPS games (Bad Company 2 best game)
I can put up with absolutely any cheap tactics and such when there is 0 lag. It's when lag is introduced that all that sort of thing becomes an aggravation as it is aggravating to cope with. Also, the fact the person is not there with me makes it seem like they're purposely being douchey.
So yes, you suck and can't act out when people are actually there in the room with you. Unless you're Australian or some shit, lag ain't that bad friend. And if you are Australian, get off the internet, you're lagging the whole fucking thing just by being here.
>>315370606 Based on my own experience playing online multiplayer, it is safe to say >Meh at FPS games >Better at fighting games >don't play mobas because gambling addiction mechanics do not appeal to me, would probably be absolute shit
assume what you will about someones skill level in a blanket statement, saying "lag isn't that bad" does not compromise the fact that it exists, and in a game that is built to be played and enjoyed with zero lag, it inherently fucks up the core mechanics. If you like playing a game with inherently fucked up mechanics, then do so. I however, do not.
>>315367596 No. I've never done that. There are many, many instances where I probably should've.
Closest i've ever been to it is in M.A.G. later in its' life when all of the good players migrated to SVER and all of the shit tier players ended up in Valor. I always picked a different faction when vett'ing so I got to experience the best and worst of three worlds.
Fucking being brick-walled at the bunkers for 30 minutes was always a treat, let me tell you. Sneak back and blow up the AA? It's up within two deployment cycles.
It wasn't that fun on SVER either because eventually the enemy would stop running up to the bunkers and would just stay behind the red line.
>>315367596 Mostly in multiplayer games. If it's singleplayer, I only reagequit out of utter bullshit like encounters where the enemy cheats you the fuck up.
As for multiplayer... >even if I do well, way above average or even topping scoreboard, almost every death I get feels like a serious, personal defeat, every single time >it sometimes make me beat myself a little, I bite myself, I slap and hit my face, if it's really bad I might slam my mouse down (last time it caused a small crack in the table right under the mousemat, deep enough to actually be felt when you're trying to play) >genuinely feel that after having played games for over 20 years, I should automatically be way beyond the average player in skill, but often it seems like I'm actually just pretty bad at everything I play >my bursts of rage makes it nearly impossible to play with friends anymore, even my own brother avoids me because I'm simply not fun to play with anymore
>>315374859 i'd say i'm better at most people at tf2 but quake is just a whole different story and i can't really place where i'm going wrong i suppose it's just a game where you have to really put in the time and learn what all the hot tips and tricks are like rocket jumping and the weird bunny hopping and where to aim on maps
I behave the exact same way, though I've broken enough shit around myself that I don't hit things much anymore. I'm surprised to this day why my friends put up with my shit, on LANs and whatnot, I mean I'm slightly held back when I'm around them but I still swear and rage like a retard, it has to be extremely annoying to listen to.
It is a thing about having too high expectations about ourselves isn't it? In the last two weeks there were 3 occasions I pulled literal 10:1 KDRs and they all still ended in my raging out and even quitting "prematurely" once. Probably the very fact that I can bash these noobs in so hard tells me that its unforgivable to lose against them.
>>315375420 >Probably the very fact that I can bash these noobs in so hard tells me that its unforgivable to lose against them. Agreed. It's got something to do with expectation and pride, maybe. I also complain out loud about how some people that gets a kill in on me must be cheating or hacking (namely shit like getting shot through a wall or around a corner by a sniper; I understand deep down that it's because of latency but I just can not tolerate it).
I want to think that I'm better than a bunch of freeplayers who installed Steam just an hour ago (which is what the majority of people play like).
Same same, I found myself calling someone a cheater (just to myself) 1.5 hours into the Battlefront beta, how fucking retarded that is? But then I was doing a 40-2 KDR so it just springs forth
I always was better than average in any game I played as soon as I got a handle on the controls, so that became the default.
Still I completely see how unreasonable it is to expect myself to win every time when I haven't even put in the excessive amount of practice hours I used to as a teenager.
And whenever I succesfully calm myself down with thoughts like that - something actual, total bullshit happens, something valid and absolutely questionable - and I'm rolling back down the stairs into ragetown.
The only game I ragequit was Street Fighter 4. I would get so mad at losing to stupid stuff I sometimes yelled bullshit at the screen. So I simply quit playing cause it only made me mad. Was maining Cammy back then. Seeing her in the new game kinda makes me want to play again but I know I'll just get mad again, so I don't.
Not him but I know, but that doesn't help with the gut-reaction I get when it happens, at that moment I just judge the smallest >him >me situation and immediately look for what the was his excuse for beating me.
Like if I'm playing a team based game and my team is garbage/trolling and not only do we not have a chance of winning but they're trying to make sure I don't have fun either I'll just leave and find a different game.
It doesn't make me mad, just kind of annoyed that I had my time wasted.
I have a friend whose salt levels when playing fighting games is immeasurable. Every single whiffed move, failed input and hit landed on him is somehow the game's fault. All the other characters are way too cheap or OP (unless he's using them).
He's just as bad when we play Monster Hunter, too. The monster is always after him and has never attacked anyone else. At least he's decent, he's just saltier than the ocean depths.
>>315367596 I got fucked pissed when I was playing MGSV that prologue/epilogue level was fucking maddening.
You have to sit there and flop around like a fish for 40 goddamn minutes, and you better fucking hope you hit all the hidden objectives and get an S rank your first time because you can't actually skip 90% of this shit. If you've got to play it again it's another 40 minutes of flopping around and wishing you were playing something better.
Anyway, while I was playing the epilogue version of the mission everything that could go wrong was going wrong and since I wanted to make sure I got my S rank I'd restart anytime something fucked up, after like 8 resets I was fucking pissed and wanted to smash a bro.
>mgs4 final fight with ocelot >wooo this is pretty epic and all but I've done basically 2 minutes of cqc in the entire game >3 stages or what >need to get through it with one healthbar >doing things I haven't done at all in the entire game
And then I finished the game on youtube, which I thought very fitting considering the only thing the game trained me in is watching videos.
>>315380556 I know this feel all too well. Every time I play EoSD, I make small mistakes and beat myself up over them to the point where I have to stop playing. >"GODDAMMIT I SHOULDN'T HAVE WASTED A BOMB THERE" >"FUCK IF I HADN'T WASTED THAT BOMB EARLIER I COULD SAVE MYSELF NOW" >"SHIT I'M SO FUCKING BAD I HAD TO CONTINUE FROM MEI LING FUCK"
For some reason, I've been getting less mad in games lately. Usually I just go full retard if my teammates are retarded or I just go full despair and don't give a shit. I find it makes games more tolerable / fun.
>Just got Halo 5 >Do pretty well most games >Sudden losing streak, get matched with shit team after shit team. Kind of retards who sit and wait for a fucking Sniper to spawn instead of killing the person who's about to cap our flag >Decide to go do Free For All Instead >First game of Free For All doing really well, going neck and neck the whole game with another guy at my skill level >On 23 kills, other guy on 21 >Get one kill, now on 24 >Just about to kill the other guy to seal my win >CONNECTION TO SERVER LOST
I have never been more mad at a video game. Like seven minutes of my life wasted. Especially playing on Pegasus, fuck that map.
I guess that's what I get for letting Microshit and 343 shit in my mouth.
