My worst rage quit happened during the the first week of 2015 when I was doing a mission in RAGE called the well where I was at a bit where I came down a flight of stairs and into a room where I kept getting swarmed by bandits and consequently killed. I must have had at least 20 go's at this bit over the course of 2 nights and eventually got annoyed to the point that I calmly picked up the mouse and slammed it down on the desk about 3 or 4 times with such force that it fell apart in my hand.
once when I was seven and I had just gotten my first console (PS2) and I was playing this car game that I didn't understand I rage quit crying because I just couldn't comprihend what I was supposed to do. it was one of the lowest points in my life
I would consider myself quite a rational person but when I was trying to get the platinum for bloodborne I got so angry at amygdala in the cursed chalice dungeon that I head butted my controller... as hard as I could... rapidly...
One of my favorite rage quit moments wasn't me rage quitting, but one time in red dead redemption multiplayer there was another player who kept trying to kill me but everytime I would kill him instead at first he started complaining about the weapon I was using so I would switch and after I went through all the weapons he decided he had enough saying "screw this" and then he began to play guitar which I could hear through the headset. I just sat there laughing until I cried was a very strange experience
I don't USUALLY rage quit (I'm pretty good at just powering through even as I get angry, so I rarely reach a point where I quit out of anger), but I do remember getting so frustrated with Shin Megami Tensei IV that I closed the system. Without saving. After having played the game non-stop for several hours and spent most of that time doing level grinding.
I then left the system alone for a while before coming back to it and, noticing it was still turned on and having forgotten how long I'd been playing the game, decided to stop wasting the system's battery and turned it off. Without doing an extra save just to make sure I didn't lose any progress. Yes, I did feel like a massive idiot when I loaded my save back up next time and realised what I'd done...
The best/worst rage quit I ever did was in days BP (before PlayStation). The year was 1994, the system was the SNES and the game was Lemmings. Yes, Lemmings. I’d been working on the same long level (don’t ask me which) that required a lot of precision on a huge map, avoiding pitfalls and traps, probably about an hour and a half plus and many failed attempts I thought I had it right. I set my last builder going and he reached the exit so I blew up my blocker and the rest of them started on their merry way. Bear in mind the time limit, the speed of the lemmings and the complete lack of a fast forward button or the ability to save the game... Well eventually the lemmings got to the last bit and catastrophe! Instead of leaving the bridge that carried my first lemming to safety and landing on nice solid ground the little buggers, all 98 of them fell through a crack 1 pixel thick and plummeted to their undignified doom with that cutesy, squelchy “splat” they made. I was livid. My 13 year old self loudly vented his frustration... “Bollocks!” I think is what I yelled. This resulted in parents telling me to switch the game off and give them the cartridge which I got back the following day, and the worst bit was the kicker... I’d written the sodding password down wrong! I had to plough through the previous very tedious and difficult level again many times before I could torture myself again.
So apart from lost progress and having to do another level again, I got Lemmings confiscated! Lemmings! I ask you! Oh how my mates laughed!
I don't destroy equipment, but when i get really mad I hit my chair or my head, and one time I rag quit to Horizon Zero Dawns Sneak training ground exercise and I hit my head hard enough to give myself a headache and make myself dizzy ^^;
Otherwise tho i dont rage quit much at all
i just had to rage quiet ac rouge as i died ten times in a row and its a timed thing and i suck at them. i nearly broke my controller hitting it so hard on my desk. im sure my neighbours must wonder wtf is going on
So a friend of mine pished me to buy street figther 4.i didnt realy like the game at first, but now its ok ish. Every time he comes over to play, he reckes me. So then i go on a tantrum and dont do anything, so that he is basically playing himself. He always gets of about it so its pretty satisfying.
After 1000 hours of Souls games, I can't feel angry anymore. Whenever I get killed I'm like "Meh, whatever"
On an unrelated note, I also lost my capacity to feel joy, so when I actually beat a boss I'm like "Meh, whatever"
My rage quit casualties over the years - 1 broken pc mouse , 2 broken controllers, 1 broken tv remote control, broken soul calibur v disc, broken micro maniacs disc, teeth marks in my current controller. Yh i rage sometimes.
I once broke a TV with a pair of scissors. I don't even remember what game it was now. I just remember my dad was furious and I had to replace the TV using all my pocket money for months. Then than replacement was not allowed in my room and if I wanted another TV for my room, I had to go and buy yet another TV. Yeah, that was a valuable lesson in keeping my temper.
I *almost* rage quitters on a puzzle in a dungeon in a tales game called tales of symphonia. You have to walk through the dark to get to the puzzle points and if you drop down, you go straight back to the start. And not just that, you have to go back and forth through those puzzles to get to the finishing point. Like I literally fell down to the start for 30+ times( it shines occasionally, and there's no invisible walls) so I walked through those single path through the dark again and again. Worse is I fell when trying to get the chests
So I was once playing overwatch I don’t want to come off rude but my team sucked so we weren’t winning any matches but it was like 20 matches of losing and since I’m pretty competitive I umm grabbed a pen and started stabbing it on paper...did it to hard and the ink splattered everywhere..I learned my lesson
I don't so much suffer from rage quitting; I know when I'm getting mad, put the controller down and just walk the hell away for a while in my worst cases.I do, however suffer from a vicious case of vengeful competitiveness; Back when Mortal Kombat for the PS3 was coming out my best bud and I would play each other on the Demo every day until the game launched and we had our fair shares of wins and losses....until the full game came out and he picked Sektor and would, invariably, serve me my hind quarters on a silver platter; my response was to spend hours upon hours a day for a week while he was out of town practicing on my favorite character, Smoke. He came back and played me (as Sektor of course) and was dumbfounded to find I had improved so drastically that he could do little more than stand there and block because he knew the second he tried to move I'd combo that red robot into ketchup. It actually got to the point where he, nor any of my other friends would even play me on the game if I picked smoke and insisted I lock my selection before they did.
There was that one time...against the devil on Guitar Hero 3. Yeah, I legitimately smashed that guitar (I know I hit those notes). Oh! Then there was the time I punched my flat screen and caused it to spiderweb...I forgot what game, probably Madden.
when you play grand prix in Mario kart and you already are in the last race while you got first one the three races before but you get 2nd or worse in the last round right in front of the finish line 😠😥
Way, way, way back in the days of yore. Say, 1991 or ‘92. Becoming so frustrated with Super Thunder Blade, trying repeatedly, for weeks, to fly through those damn caves on the second stage, only to crash again and again and again, and being further insulted by having every enemy onscreen continue to pump rockets and bullets into my smoldering wreck of a chopper afterwards. Then, becoming so enraged , that I smash my controller down onto my Genesis, breaking the volume switch. There is a happy ending, though; 22 years later, I finally beat the game!!! Childhood. Vindicated.
Spammers make me rage quit. And it's not automatically, it's when they spam the first time, I find a way around it and they find another way to spam. And after I find another way around it they find another way to spam. And the spamming is due to glitches in the game. I'm tactical but Igot low patience. So I just stopped playing all together.
I remember mine in resident evil outbreak im in the final step of finishing a good ending then outside while walking on a wooden pathway with water a shark suddenly grab me im very frustrated throw the disc and never played it again
I missed the entire kingdom hearts series while looking on with a mixture of guilt and incredulity because I rage quit the coliseum in the first game, before Phil ever let me into a single match. Phil is a really hard teacher you guys! (says the one final fantasy fan in the world who couldn't even get through a fighting arena tutorial on the third or fourth level of the first game)
Destiny 1 pvp and a team of lag switching cheating fuckwits whom I kept getting matched with caused me to throw my controller into my TV this breaking it...borrowed one from a friend ended meeting the same team of fuckwits again! Whom for some reason we couldn’t get away from in matching this causing me to rage yet again destroying my controller which flung backwards and hit the newly borrowed TV this breaking it. Needless to say I avoid Destiny pvp for the most part even in D2
I like every gamer out there rage quit (usually in Dark Souls) but I've never done what you guys do. The most I ever do is quit the game for a while and sulk and pout on my bed. You guys are violent. Is that normal for everyone else? Am I the odd duckling? O.O
I had a roommate back in the vanilla WOW days. Blackwing Lair had opened, and in those days 40 man raids were pretty hard to organize. But anyways, they were getting their asses handed to them. My roommate got so mad he ripped his keyboard out of his computer. When I say ripped he pretty much dragged the computer along until the cord came out. He then open the window, and flung that keyboard out of it, while hanging onto the cord, and proceeded to slam the window closed on it, several times before he let it go (we were on the 3rd floor). He got dressed and went out to booze. That's the worst rage quit I've ever seen.
Does rage quitting street fighter 4 because of the final boss and then running around your neighbourhood shirtless pretending do be Zangief while you spin around with your arms out shouting "OOUUYYYAAH" in the middle of a sunny day when ALL your neighbours are out sunbathing count?
I raged quit dark souls 1 took it out of the ps3 thew it like frisbee with everything ounce of strength into a tree and shattered into little pices.
Take that Artorias morale of the story never hit a buff Merchant unless you can kill him within seconds or he will kill you. Dark souls1 is still dead to this very day.
i matured in my teens when game controllers lost there cords they use to stop after a few feet of cored the first controller i had fly across the room and smash into little bits all over the room and cost me $100 dollars to replace my game rage lowered remarcably
I know I'm a bit late but one that sticks out to me is I was doing the training on Mortal Kombat Deadly alliance and I was trying to do Frost's combos and I got so angry I broke the disc and smashed my controller on the floor so hard and so many times that I broke it in half 😂😂😂
I have owned all PlayStation's during their generations and the PS4 is the first time I ever broke a controller playing a game. Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy is the bane of my existence. I have yet to play the game again after I had gotten so mad and threw my controller across the room and it shattered. Not one of my proudest moments haha
My bro who's 10, has ragequitted Fortnite several times and knocked my room's furniture in result and usually a bit whacked the controller. I try to tell him that the Switch Pro Controller he's playing always is LITERALLY 80€ which is VERY MUCH. I don't want to lose it to someone who can't get #1 Victory Royale.
I got over the worst of my rage-quitting during the days when controllers were joysticks and I was able to buy one with all steel interior parts that was pretty much unbreakable. Now, I just throw my controller at the other end of my couch which is fairly safe.
Rob you're a gem to the community, I've literally binge watched every single one of these top 7 features. Nothing brightens my day than to watch one of your videos with your hilarious voice over comments
Had to show the girlfriend this video to prove I'm not the only one who has had a major case or rage quitting, mine however was when playing NFS Most Wanted back in the day. I tried and tried as hard as I could to tag the zillion police cars before making my final escape and after my 100th attempt, almost an hour into my final grind got busted! Jumped up out of the chair in a fit of rage and used all my strength to try and snap my PS2 slim in half. The worst part was I wasnt strong enough to actually snap it in two and ended up with a unusable banana shaped console and no satisfaction of completing the break! Lesson learned.... hopefully!
Thanks for the video, made my day 😂
