Let's say you're playing a video game. How would you feel if you keep losing, if say, a person is using a 'cheap tactic', or, if you're losing and keep dying to a video game boss of some sorts. You try again, and again, and again, but still can't win.

Now, how woulds you react? This is a basic question of your reaction if you keep losing at video games. Would you be angry at all? Would you give up? Keep playing? Whatever? Feel free to share!

I used to throw my controller/mouse and get angry as all heck... in recent years I've tried to take a more claim approach, if I keep losing and start getting frustrated, turn it off do something else.
Having said that I didn't get mad at friends/family when I was playing against them, I usually got mad when I failed to beat a boss/level for the 50th time in most cases it would have be fighting games.

If the game is single-player:
If the boss isn't that big of a deal, it's like whatever to me. However, if it's something that hardly anyone can beat, then I'd most likely rage.


If the game is multiplayer:
Unless the opponent is bad mannered, I'd just "gg" out.

Losing is part of life, if you keep losing you are probably doing something wrong. But if someone uses a cheap tactic aka cheesing, i can get pretty mad.

I am the one who gets really angry if I lose an Videogame. I broke lots of controllers in my video game life.

My brother couldn't pass a level in god of war, so he threw the PS3 controller on the window. The controller split in half but the glass window is still intact. Then i took another controller and passed the level in my first try...so he was mad at me too.

Oh my.

Well, back when Modern Warfare 2 was still popular, I liked to use the more underrated weapons..things like the M4A1, FAL, etc. The bad thing is that you had 3 things which basically ruined the game for you.
1. Danger Close perk
2. One Man Army perk
3. Grenade Launchers, aka the "noob tube".

Those 3, combined, made MW2 a hellish experience...once Black Ops came out, my controller barely worked, due to my rage. :x

I have played around 800 hours of dark souls over all (not just steam) and my god... I feel I don't need to explain what happens when you go into Dark Souls PvP.

Ultimately my mood and perception of a loss is based strongly on the amount of sleep I have.

If I am well rested, I can lose a couple of times and come up with a good solution, different strategy and beat the part that's troubling. However, if I've haven't slept in a day or have been up late. I can lose and lose and my anger will stubbornly make me try the same tactic assuring me that the game is unfair and I'm not doing anything wrong.

Here are some examples of tactics I use to either deal with, or prevent, a loss.

________

For first-person shooters like Call of Duty, Halo and Battlefield. I'm pretty cool in Multiplayer, despite dying a lot. But, if I'm killed continuously by the same person, in the same cheap and lame way. I will waste no time to use "the ultimate combo."

Start+Up+A+A (Ie. Start Menu, up puts me on leave game, A to choose it and A again to answer the game question of "Are you sure?")

There are two types of fighting games. Fun ones and Pro-Lame ones. Examples include:

FUN

- Dragon Ball Z: Budokai & Budokai Tenkaichi
- Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm and it's entire franchise
- Final Fantasy: Dissidia (the first one only)

PRO-LAME

- Street Fighter
- Marvel versus Capcom
- Mortal Kombat

When it comes to the "Fun" Fighting games. I can take losing pretty lightly. Unless the loss was incredibly lame and really stupid. But I've become pretty good at all the Ninja Storms so I can play on Super Hard with ease.

On multiplayer for those games, losing can be a pain in the tuckous, especially with Minato, Madara and Tobi (Ninja War) spammers. However, after I learned creating your own session as opposed to seeking out others, I learned a nifty little trick to A. Escape the same opponent, especially if he was being cheap and unfair and B. Filter the over-powered, experienced: 3 times my Rank guys. There's a button when you create session, it says: "Kick Player", 'nuff said.

It's especially useful to troll players who want a rematch and you want to stone wall 'em like a Brick-mason. :3

For the "Pro-Lame" ones...

First lemme say I don't event attempt multiplayer for any of the listed games.

But the computers for SF, MvC and MK are cheap beyond belief and don't deserve my time.

IE. Seth, Rogue and Shoucon <-or whatever

And finally, my RPG games. I never lose. (:<

Seriously, my party hasn't been wiped out on FF7 yet, not once.

No doubt about it...I'd rage. And possibly rage hard, especially if it's against another person in a competitive environment. I have a temper that usually comes out only when I'm playing video games. I've had a few controller-throwing moments - thankfully not a whole lot, though. Mostly it's just a bunch of cursing.

Would I come back to it...depends on how mad I got. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.

I'd probably throw a tantrum, then after a week trying to figure out their tactic and researching it, I'd kick butt and totally rock their virtual world! >:D

Or I'd sulk and never touch the game ever again. xD

I would just toss whatever I was using out of the closest window, go to a corner and just cry for about nine hours straight.

Hey by the way have you guys ever had those super hard boss fights, and you nearly use up all of your items and skills and everything with all effort not to die, but in the end you were supposed to lose?

Can you relate to this?

Bosses, not really. Players, ditto. They're doing whatever they enjoy while I do whatever I like. I have more of an issue with the game itself if players can actually get away with cheap crap.

The way literally everyone in CoD 4 uses Stopping Power and then whines about Juggernaut is infuriatingly assbackwards.

I definitely get upset, but I try to channel that anger into better concentration for the next game. I'm too broke to throw **** around

I definitely get pissed when I see the same cheap tactics being spammed ad naseum to where I want to ram my fist through the tv but I manage to pull myself away for a minute or 2 to recollect myself and try to think of something else to do to help calm my nerves like watching something random on Youtube or simply switching over to another game until I feel calm enough to get back into the game I was previously on like Naruto Storm 3, Halo 4, or Halo Reach to name a few.

i'd like to think I'm a pretty relaxed guy in real life, but Dark Souls PvP is just an absolute trainwreck. I mostly blame FROM's incompetence, but even the best game will be flooded by min-maxers and tryhards. Most of my problems stem from the abysmal netcode and the generic builds that come about to abuse this flaw as much as possible. Last time I played, it was flooded with GiantDads/HavelMoms/StoneChildren, Dark Bead spammers, baiting Chaos Rapier +5 turtles, and gankers.

I don't usually get pissed at a boss unless it's because of constant hax. Souls games have made me much more patient with video games.

Well, I don't really rage much, but if I do get above the stage of constantly cursing towards the screen I can be prone to throwing my controller just about anywhere in frustration. I'm normally lax though and I don't get frustrated much while playing so them times are rare haha.

There's one more: two-handed Falchion spam with Darkmoon Blade. Comes free with spoonfuls of WOTG.

Ugh, thanks for reminding me. They were still a huge problem despite my Faith builds with GMB, although I don't remember encountering them using WotG. I usually see WotG only on dedicated spam builds since it's has a huge window for dodging.

Now that I think about it, my worst experience with DaS 1v1 PvP has probably been against DWGR pokers. They wouldn't be such a problem in a well made online game, but the "questionable" netcode renders parries and setup parries near useless. It takes a certain amount of skill and a lot of patience, but it's just such a boring playstyle, and the only real way to counter it (in my experience at least) is to adopt their playstyle and outpoke the enemy.

Dark Souls insults away yeah it's PvP is a hellfight of people exploiting and using Giant Dads, it is a fun experience when you go to Londo and just train wreck noobs who have no idea what becoming Human means :D Also Steam Sale means that PC dark souls gets flooded with people who don't know the controls. Also the onyl way to win at DS PvP is just exploit and hope you can kick them off a cliff.

Aside from raging audibly, and swearing like the sailor my daddy was, at my own mistakes and cheap shots; I don't really rage that hard.

But I do have a bit of a system, and there are times where I either **** up so badly I put the game down for some period of time or I am just so pissed at the game I quit and find something else to play for a while.

Depending on the level of rage induced, I may even BAN myself from playing a game for a period of time. Usually these are temporary, for giving myself time to research things or just to cool down and attack it later from a different angle.
