    Default Ever break a controller in frustration?

    Ever play a game or reached a certain tough point that was so hard or so frustrating that you hurled your controller against a wall or something? I'm reminded of this as I just got FFX working in an emulator and...

    Well I remember playing FFX on PS2 way back and doing the Chocobo portion with Tidus to go after his ultimate weapon. It was the part of doing the race where you have to get a time under 0.0.00 and I landed right on 0 and didn't get it and hurled my controller against the wall. Thankfully it was a cheap third party turbo one that I had.

    Back when I was a little anklebiter playing NES games, if I died and raged out I'd flip the controller straight up into the air. I'd then roll around on the floor attempting to catch it. Thankfully NES controllers are invincible, so other than maybe a few scratches and dents nothing ever happened to it. I'm sure I still have that controller around and it's perfectly functional.

    @Ragnar: Yeah I actually almost deleted his account by reflex because I thought he was a spambot based on that post alone. Just a subtle warning for you guys.

    Anyway, I've only broken shit when I was very little. A few buttons on a keyboard, and a joystick during TFX. I'll never forget that.

    Never that I can remember, but thankfully most floors where I have lived are carpet, so that softens any blow!

    BTW how many posts are needed for activation? Please activate me!

    Never, I used to get annoyed by a few games but not enough to break anything.

    same. I never had many nice things, so I made my NES last me until I did. I did, however; take apart nearly everything else I owned to see what was inside. Sometimes they were successfully put back together but others, not.

    I've never broken one myself, but my house mate goes through ps3 controllers like you wouldn't believe, I assume he'll eventually cop on and start buying the cheap ones. I might stick some pictures up when I'm home, but yeah anyway I like to bet on what game he'll break his next controller on.

    I've never broken a controller. I have had to taken some apart at times to unjam them.
