For giggles, anyone want to chat a bit about games that made them want to (or actually did) throw stuff? Would you suggest anyone else try them out? I’m more the burst into tears type, but hey frustrated tears is also a thing, right?
Edit: We have our first category, thanks to @rporter711 ^^ Would you believe there are Speed Runs of #1 and #3?
Update: Markiplier made a series of 8 videos, 1 almost 2 hours long, trying to beat Getting Over It. The times when he fell, I almost cried for him. T_T
Moments in games that prompted the RAWR! also count. I’ll be adding mine when I get a chance.
Getting Over it with Bennett Foddy Steam link, Humble Trove if you’re a subscriber
Whew… I have a few. Will keep it short cause it’s late.
Hollow Knight. Nearly quit after a mandatory platforming segment with a bunch of thorns before unlocking one of the main areas in the game. It’s now one of my favorite titles.
Thomas Was Alone, c. 2014. Haven’t touched it in 5 years because of a platforming section that pissed me off. I should probably get back to it. It’s an excellent game and very unique in its storytelling.
The Prince of Persia Trilogy. In my upbringing I learned to love the sand in the beach and BLOODY HATE THESE STUPID SAND MONSTERS DIE DIE DIE- I mean they’re great games.
Zork Anthology. And that’s because I own the collector’s edition with the manual, maps etc etc… Sigh.
Baba is You. I feel personally victimized by this game. @Vandem can attest.
the feeling of being trap with useless teammate that are the same rank as you for some reason but when playing with you cant make the difference between their right and left…
it started with counterstrike, then once i got tired of the toxicity i moved to dota… figured out soon enough that it wasn’t better and not i’m on rocket league… i mean if i have to make an Atlas of myself carrying my team … i prefer having smaller team cs and dota are 5v5 rocket are 2v2 or 3v3… so it’s easier to carry the trash out
I’m actually quite quick tempered so ‘rage quitting’ is a thing i’ve struggled all my gaming life pretty much. But for the last 5 or so years i’m actively avoiding online multiplayer games ( with occasional exception ) to keep myself from having those moments when i want to throw my keyboard to the wall.
Well, it’s story time!
You see, I don’t get angry, or rage. Wow, that was a pretty disappointing story… Anyways, for some reason I am just incapable of getting angry, or well, I can if course get angry, but not a single game has ever managed to make me rage.
No anger, only happiness allowed c:
For me it’s pretty much that I just don’t see a point in getting angry, especially at something like a video game. If something doesn’t work out or I keep dying it’s just showing that I need to get better
It’s true. For me, I more get saddened - which still isn’t good. It’s true, it’s just a game and a chance to do better, or just stop and come back to another time.
I’m more apt to rage quit a story or storyline, coz it’s super annoying to have a story start strong, have good characters, and then for it all to go to H-E-Double-Hockey sticks in a hand basket. More so, if you were like half-way through.
I understand you and i really thing the same way… but lately i am getting bursts of angry when i die in the games, obviously i can tell this is something beyond games… i hope book, meditation, family and friends helps me…
