It doesn't apply to me because I haven't played video games for ages. It did happen to my son once, and he cracked the 60 inch screen of a flat screen TV in the den, and kept quiet about it...thank goodness it was an older model!
I get mad but usually that just makes me yell and growl that the tv. My little brother and I used to shove each other and stuff like that to mess each other up while playing two player. That probably got too violent a couple of times, haha.
There are a few...namely one particular board in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for PS. God I was soo soo mad!
Would that area by any chance be the clock tower? That area is the one that aggravates me the most, especially when I'm trying to hit all the switches for the secret room.
I've never gotten so mad at a game that I've smashed stuff, though I will swear and yell a bit. Usually when I get to that point I'll turn it off. It's mostly fighting games that have cheap bosses that make me mad.
NES: TMNT, Ninja Gaiden, all Megaman games, and Castlevania.
SNES: Contra III and DK Country
Xbox/PS3: Ninja Gaiden
I don't play any of those older games without a save-state emulator. I don't play Ninja Gaiden or Ninja Gaiden Sigma because I find them tedious, not challenging.
In Tomb Raider Anniversary, the really tall Atlantis tower/shaft with the lava at the bottom... There's a certain way to shoot at the switches on the wall, then the platforms start to retract, and then you have to grapple and run/jump like hell to the other platforms... all the way up. I haven't played in a while but that part was hard as heck! Arg! I got so mad I was cussing. lol.
