QOTW: What's the angriest you've been at a game?

Every week the hosts of TalkRadar present and answer a new "Question of the Week" - a personal inquiry which unearths some of our deepest, and sometimes most sinister, gaming memories. Everyone is encouraged to answer each week's question, so go ahead, tell us your most glorious, nostalgic, or shameful story!


This week's question:

What's the angriest you've been at a game?

What puzzle, level, glitch or other experience made you hurl your controller with the most vigor?

Answer this week's question in the comments!

Questions can also be answered in the QOTW forum thread. Our favorite posts this week will be read next week on TalkRadar 56, and appear in the next edition of this article. Listen to TalkRadar 55 tomorrow for our answers!


Last week's question:

What was your favorite moment at E3?

As always, a big thanks to everyone who contributed - except for Dualcarrot, who chose to repost the same drivel about Natal twenty-or-so times. Thanks buddy.

In general, you guys liked the stuff we did... though we may have been a bit more pessimistic overall. There were lots of mentions of Metroid: Other M, Project Natal, The Beatles: Rock Band, Last Guardian, The GOWIII trailer, new Metal Gear, and all that good stuff.

Below are a few of last week's answers that tickled our collective fancies, but since we can't feature them all here, check out last week's article and forum thread for more...

At least it was announced that the next Zelda will be announced... that's something, right?

Metroid: Other M... The trailer came on. Meteors and shooting. S...s..star Fox? I stuttered. But then it was something even better. It looks ******* amazing!"

So did we. Also, whatever are those seemingly random letters and numbers in your username? You do have us baffled, sir!

    For the 360 hmmm nothing comes to mind except maybe COD4 the mile high club on vetern I swear to god all mighty I was about to get a headshot to save the hostage. The first time I hit is leg to get a headshot it gave me a game over. Hundreds of deaths later, my 360 turns off right as I am about to win just becuase I hit the power button on my universal remote. A story for the original xbox, me and my cousin were getting ready to beat halo 2 on legendary without the banshees and he pulled the power by accident. He has never lived that down

    WAIT!!! i thought of another one.... i got trapped in this square room in the water temple on ocarina of time... i spent like an hours trying to get out and i couldnt do it i yelled screamed threw anything that was within reach until i finally started a whole new game!... (i had already beat the game like twice but i hadnt played in a couple of years so i didnt remember everyhting to do i mean it ws one of the greatest games ever id still play it if i owned a N64)... I got back to the water temple and got stuck in the same damn room and then i found it a tiny freakin hole in a wall that belended in with the background.... i was both happy and still ridiculously pissed all at the same time... happy because i found it but pissed that i had just wasted countless hours doing it all over again... sigh
  • chayrey5 - June 17, 2009 7:35 a.m.

    I would have to say the Lion King game on the SNES or Sega Genesis i dont even remember all i remember is that i was like 6 and i couldnt beat the stupid stampede level and every time you died you had to start the whole game over WTF!!!! I remember nothing else about being 6 except being utterly pissed at that game.... Similiar experience for one of those old Star Wars games i dont remember which one i just remember having to drive a stupid little red car thing across the desert to get on this stupid ship and it was near impossible and if i ever did manage to make it to the ship i would die shortly after and have to start all over again as well iiii hated that... i dont ever remember getting so mad at games and ive been playing them for 17 years
  • dml1127 - June 17, 2009 12:59 a.m.

    COD4 Mile High Club on veteran. I almost punched a hole in my wall
  • lethalcodeine - June 16, 2009 8:27 p.m.

    Gran Turismo 3 had me cussing and ripping my hair out...and I destroyed a controller.
  • AntistaSmellsLikePizza - June 16, 2009 6:26 p.m.

    In blazing angels 2 there is a level where you have to protect Red Square and the enemys just keep coming!!! i kept trying to do it but i couldnt.i even asked my brother who is impossibly good at games to try do it but he couldnt. i got so pissed of that i threw the case of the game at the wall but it hit a vase full of water which fell on my xbox and cracked and the water destroyed my xbox. i just started to cry. I was 15 at the time and nothing has pissed me off as much as that game!!
  • theschwartzb - June 16, 2009 12:35 a.m.

    And after reading through some of these comments, i remembered WoW. I love and hate that game so much, i just want to bash the first person to even have the idea for that game with a large, solid object. Going through hours upon days upon weeks of just raiding, and you kill boss after boss. You keep telling yourself you are going to get that t8 piece on the next boss, even though you truly know you are not. Fuck you WoW, fuck you directly in the ass with a gigantic golden dildo. Except im going to end up continuing on, trying to get that t8 piece until my brain melts and my eyeballs explode.

    Well, the angriest I've ever been with a game would have to be during a late night session of Team Fortress 2. I was a sniper and i had found a decent hiding spot with a good view of the map. But some damn soldier on my team just stood in front of me jumping up and down, blocking my view of the area and alerting most of the other team to my whereabouts. I was screaming at the kid to stop jumping in front of me but no response from him. I then got yelled at by other team members for being loud and i got so sick of everyone that i tore the headset off of my head and whipped my controller towards what i assumed was the ground, but then i head a sharp *CRACK* i hit my buddy square in the knee. He had trouble walking for a few days and eventually went to the doctor. Turns out he needs a $1200 knee brace and needed to take zinc and calcium supplements for months. We're still friends, but we now stay away from TF2.

    When I was younger I freaked out when I lagged in RuneScape and died, losing "valuable stuff" (it would porbably cost all of 150k now), but to me then, it was a lot of money. I started screaming at my computer screen and punched the wall. I was about 12 or 13.
  • noofer7 - June 15, 2009 3:49 p.m.

    The game that makes me angriest is also my favorite game: Morrowind! My copy is damaged and freezes all the time!
  • VoodooPanda - June 15, 2009 11:55 a.m.

    Whenever I play Gears 2 on multiplayer. Its a real bitch when someone with a bad connection force hosts the game resulting in 3 second-million year lag.
  • Wolf007 - June 15, 2009 2:13 a.m.

    i could never beat Brucies mission called #1 in GTA4. i got so pissed at it i threw a controller out my window and it landed on my gardeners head
  • sklorbit - June 15, 2009 1:46 a.m.

    i was playing gears with my friends... one round left... only my friend and i left... he runs at me with his chainsaw and i quickly hit the d pad to switch to shot gun so i could blow him away and... i switched to smoke grenade and got sawed in half... i was like, "STUPID XBOX! STUPID GEARS! IM BUYING A PS3! and i did
  • HUNTERDNRC - June 15, 2009 12:34 a.m.

    Definatley Ninja Gaiden 2, i lost two controllers to that bitch. 1 to the first boss, with his homosexual eyepatch, and the other too where i barely beat a boss, survived for about another hour, died, and then sent me back to boss again. I tried again, and couldn't succeed. Brought the game back to Gamestop the next day.
  • disturbedanomaly36 - June 15, 2009 midnight

  • Ocelot - June 14, 2009 8:01 p.m.

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2008's cheating AI teams almost gave me a heart condition. I'm a much calmer person now, post-therapy!
  • scottonfire09 - June 14, 2009 6:30 p.m.

    There was one time that I was playing Modern Warfare split screen multiplayer with my friend's then boyfriend and he kept getting cheap kills on me and then gloating about it. Eventually the red mist decended and I literally bounced the controller off the floor, reflected off a chest of drawers and missed his face by half an inch. He went home that night worried that I had fallen out with him
  • FourMe2PoopOn - June 14, 2009 1:56 p.m.

    Dead or Alive 4 is probally the game that ever made me the most angry. I hated how I could get punched one time, and I get killed with a combo that never ends. Either that or Don King Prizefighter...... things happened to that game.
  • ASSASINATION323 - June 14, 2009 6:48 a.m.

    Oh, dude. Just keep running around pressing r2 (force grab) to take down the TIE fighters, always works for me
