    Oh boy, my poor old Logitech controller has been around for the last 7 years, yet it still works perfectly, talking about build quality! I can get angry pretty quickly ,but usually it does not involve me smashing my controller. Sometimes in the heat of rage I have "dropped" my controller, for instance few weeks ago when I was trying to get all licenses gold in Gran Turismo 2, which I never managed to do because of the difficulty.

    My cats although destroyed my brand new controller recently. I had my controller on my PC case and one of my cats likes to sleep there. They fight often so my other cat came to kick the other ones ass who was sleeping on the PC. In the heat of the epic battle the cat started running for the door, but her leg got entangled with the controller wire and boom the controller hit the ground. One of the shoulder buttons was completely broken and one rumble motor inside was loose and rattling inside. Yay!

    I have broken multiple controllers. I broke 2 controllers because I got upset while playing FIFA and the others were broken by me throwing them at people

    Lol, "throwing them at people"

    I can't cite specific occasions but I have massacred my fair share of ps1 controllers.. Several I actually twisted the legs of the controllers so hard in blind rage that they broke in half, on a good note though I was able to build my own controller from the abundant pieces..

    Only broken one, but it wasn't in frustration.
    I had an old 360 wired that I had to take apart and reassemble all the time. It was from a friend when I said I needed one to emu with.
    Eventually it just stopped working.

    I used to toss mine in Nintendo/Super Nintendo days. Never actually broke any, and now the controllers for the ps3 and 360 are so darn expensive I've forced myself to reign in those impulses.

    I learned to be a professional controller breaker form my brother. i havent done it in say the last 2 years but occasionally its happened

    LAst time i broke or at least damaged a controller i was playing Smashbrothers brawl trying to get good with gannon playing online.

    I ended up breaking the face of my wii than the actual controller. but its all good i got to take the wii apart and fix it which i enjoy doing anyway... taking things apart to see how they work
