Shamefully, I still like to bust open a PS3 controller when playing Madden/NHL...although I've certainly gotten better as of late in terms of just tossing a soft rubber ball around. Damn those controllers for being so lightweight and cordless!!!

...honestly though, my wife thinks I've gone insane...but playing Madden or NHL is the only time I really vent any frustration. Any other time, I'm cool as a cucumber.

Sadly yes. I am the same way with the frustration venting. I don't get too pissed at people IRL. With the important stuff I am pretty level headed.

When I was a kid my mom threw a remote at my head, because I was watching Beavis & Butthead, and she wanted to see the Barbra Walters interview with Princess Diana

I went through SNES controllers like they were klennex. Mostly playing Madden. 3 1/2 quarters of kicking ass up by 28+ points then a fumble, my players on D couldn't tackle, interceptions and so on. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!! SLAM!!!!!

This stuff only happened when playing the against the SNES.

I actually put a hole in the wall from throwing a controller. To be fair the wall was just that fake wood paneling prevalent in the mobile homes built in the early 70's.

yup I used to break old PS1 and PS2 controllers on a regular basis during some intense 1v1 madden moments. But I haven't since controllers started costing $50

Tecmo SuperBowl caused me to break a few when I was a kid.


Now I just don't care anymore.

Fortunately NES controllers seemed almost indestructible. The old school style of playing a game for hours then lose was some frustrating shit. Fucking medusa heads.

I think I might have broken a computer joystick or two during the 90's.

Unfortunately, yes.
I have THREE Sixaxis controllers in pieces each in separate ziploc bags (Modern Warfare) and one Rock Band guitar broken.
Once the dualshock 3 came out, at $54 I take out my hate on the pillows.

Nah, I did bust a TV remote in celebration once though.

I think it was a Vanover punt return for a TD in OT. I spiked the remote.

(There may have been beer involved.)

I never understood the breaking of the the controllers.

My buddies would break their entire systems... Heck I get pissed if it drops off the couch or something...

If you wanna play online and/or PvP, expect to die... a lot. If it pisses you off that badly, you're clearly not enjoying yourself... so I'd go do something else. :shrug:

I did once when I was much younger. It involved a playoff injury that resulted in Bono time for the final drive.

A friend of mine was at that game. It was the first game he ever went too.

I'm on my 3rd or 4th 360 controller and the one I'm using now has tape around the right side to hold it together :)

Ever since the controllers started costing 60 bucks a piece I haven't broken a controller for some reason.

No, but one time I was playing a buddy in X-Men vs Street Fighter on my Sega Saturn (japanese import) and was kicking his ass and constantly doing the in-game taunt. Rage quickly took him over (he had anger issues anyways) and he ripped the disc out of the console and destroyed it.
