Sometimes you just gotta throw something through your TV. At least now I know as an adult that my parents were wrong when they said “Be careful or you’ll break the controller and I’m not buying you a new one!” They may not have purchased another controller for me but the fact remains that it takes an luxurious amount of strength in order to snap one in half. I tried with a broken SNES controller. No way I could do it as a kid. Therefore, childish rage quitting justified.
Today’s angry question is…
“What is a Game You Rage Quit On?“
The Timely Mage
While the best answer is probably Bloodborne, one of the most memorable rage quits from my childhood was making a simple platform jump in Gex: Enter the Gecko. No matter what I did and no matter how many times I tried I couldn’t make that darn jump! I was so frustrated as a kid I melted down in tears and after coming back to the game later in the day I made the jump easily.
The Black Humor Mage
All of them. At some point with any game I play, I will get mad at something I can’t beat and turn off the console.
The Rage Mage
I drooled all over my keyboard. Rage quitting is what I do best! Oh it’s so hard to choose just one! It’s like picking between my own children (that is, if I hadn’t sold all my children one by one). Once I rage quitted on Super Smash Bros. Brawl so hard, they were picking up debris and shattered glass in a 55-mile radius after the blast. The shockwave caused a server crash that could be felt from Tokyo to Cincinnati, like a tsunami of righteous wrath. They say that Shigeru Miyamoto himself felt a tremor in his loins at the ghost-echo of my Rage Mage rage! Art.
The Green Screen Mage
Arkham Knight… Well the Riddle Trophy bit. I’m still working on it! It’s just FRUSTRATING and the Riddler opens his STUPID MOUTH!!
The White Out Mage
The first Super Mario Bros. I was a small child and kept getting frustrated that I was dying and stuff.
The Well-Red Mage
Most recently, Pokémon GO has caused a lot of rage quitting. Mostly because the app quits on me. It’s been a frustrating week and a half with one of the buggiest launches I’ve ever personally experienced. It’s the worst when I run into some rare, high level Pokémon I’ve never seen before and then try to catch it only for the game to freeze. When I boot it up again after the crash, the Pokémon is poké-gone… It happened to me with a Rapidash. Insta Rage Quit. But I won’t try to snap my iphone in half.
