I just blew up over a game of halo where I ran into a limp dick bitch hacker. I started throwing shit and everything I was so pissed. I need to learn to calm the **** down, after all its just a game. What do you guys do to calm yourself down when you get pissed?Besides masturbate, your not funny **** you.

Haha what? If you lose your head over a meaningless video game like that, you need some serious changes including, but not limited to, distraction, other occupations and realizing a hacker on Halo doesn't, or at least shouldn't, dominate your entire life.

Don't manage that.

It makes for great videos on youtube hahah.

Well it hits a sore spot when I run into a hacker because back in the Halo 1 days I was on the pro circuit (PC not Xbox) which ended up decimated by hacking fags so naturally I don't take kindly to them, nor their antics especially since I am personally striving to get back onto the pro circuit and make some cash for actually playing. Also duly note that I have an extremely short fuse when it comes to, but not limited to, getting angry or irritated. I don't get to play alot, or at least shouldn't, in the first place because of work. *insert more smart sounding words here to further prove my point that your not contributing to my thread where I ask "What do you guys do to calm yourself down when you get pissed?"*

Usually I'm all over stuff like this, but I honestly have no idea what to tell you other than "calm the **** down". We all have some sore spots and well, some have them bigger and more extreme than others, just like everyone has the right to be angry, but there's just a point where you have to consider how much worth this shit has to you. Now even the "what the hell, it's just a game" thing won't work since it's apparently more than that for you (which is something I do refrain from commenting on). I'm all out of ideas here.

Just try asking yourself how getting angry will help and what the more rational thing to do is. If done right you can become an emotionless automaton :)

But in all seriousness, you just have to try to think about it differently.

Wish I didn't break up with my girl, getting laid could definitely calm me down. Hopefully sometime this or next week (yay for booty calls eh?).

It's hard for me to calm down from anything.. I'm perfect military material :D

I'm a little worried you might sock her in the face if you jizz prematurely though.

Cory
02-17-2010, 11:30 AM
Two problems with that though:
1. I will never EVER hit a girl (I once let a girl beat me up in middle school cuz there was no way I was gonna hit her)
2. I don't prematurely jizz.

MiniMan
02-17-2010, 11:30 AM
Your first mistake is trying to play Halo, or any other game, proffesionally.

Cory
02-17-2010, 11:32 AM
I figure if I did it once, I can do it again.

MiniMan
02-17-2010, 11:36 AM
It's not an issue of if you can do it or not. It's an issue of how stupid it is to do it.

Want to know how to be less mad at a video game? Don't take it so seriously. If you're taking a thing of entertainment and attaching all of these stressing issues like winning money and all that shit of course you're gonna get mad you dolt. Because you've taken a game and made it more than "just a game"

lol cory you so gay

2. I don't prematurely jizz.

you say that as if you think people plan to

Cory
02-17-2010, 11:56 AM
Well ya I'm going to take it seriously because I wanna make money from it (why so serious?). I do still have fun with it, but only if I'm winning.

2D dude, self control. After awhile you begin to realize when your about to splode and if you skilled enough you can prolong it.

Haha what the fuck? And you ask what your problem is? You've got it right fucking there.

Cory
02-17-2010, 12:06 PM
meh, maybe. When I'm playing with friends and shit I don't take it seriously then but during matchmaking on MLG, its all srs bsns.

‹berschall
02-17-2010, 12:14 PM
Then don't ask yourself why you've got such an anger problem.



Solved.

MiniMan

If you really couldn't see what your problem was before you posted this thread, you're far beyond help.

Exile

People like you are the reason modern gaming sucks ass. Back in elementary school pretty much everyone had Goldeneye and pretty much everyone played because it was fun, not because they liked winning. And for the most part most 18-20ish year olds seem to still get it, but all the ****ing 12-15 year olds playing Halo and MW2 are little whiny bitches because they never grew up with the idea that video games are supposed to be about having fun, not about having fun under the condition that you're winning.

I have a brother that does this, something about widespread online gaming bred little shits like you that can't have fun unless they're dominating the scoreboards, that's not the ****ing point of playing a game. There's a reason people flipping out to games wind up getting thousands of views on Youtube and get ridiculed by everyone.

If you've gotten to the point where you can only conditionally enjoy a game, then don't bother playing it. If you're in it for the money, get a day job like everyone else and use games to relieve stress, not to facilitate it.

Now.

Right here right now you sexy mother****er.

02-17-2010, 01:24 PM
what i suggest is that you stop playing video games and go outside for a bit and if your already going outside anyway just go out more

Cory
02-17-2010, 02:49 PM
first of I am 18, and yes I do play games for fun but I also play other games seriously. Halo I take seriously, if I wanna have fun with it ill do forge or campaign or play a different game such as spore or sims. If halo wasn't meant to be competitive play they're wouldn't be a ranking system, online play, or a MLG. ****ing duh.

How do you think alot of competitive sports started? It was a game that evolved! Holyshit, things evolve? no wai I'm too busy being stuck in the 80's and 90's with my nintendo and black n white tv. I dun wanna evolve i wanna stay primitive >:E.

Thats regardless, the point of this thread is to suggest ways to manage my anger, either do that or gtfo. Quit trying to imitate 2D and stop trolling and start being useful.

exilement isn't trolling, he's just telling you that your anger comes with competitive gaming and that you're an idiot for not realizing so

the most simple thing i can tell you is that you should stop taking things too seriously, like this thread

Cory
02-17-2010, 02:59 PM
I do realize it comes from that, I'm not asking you guys what its from. I already know. I'm asking what you guys tend to do to calm down and/or stay calm. No I'm not gonna stop playing competitively.

Covalence
02-17-2010, 03:03 PM
normally by realizing what your anger and stress stems from, you try to eliminate the factors that cause the stress in that environment

if it's games and stuff that piss you off, you should keep in mind that "wait, i'm not the best player out there, so something like this is bound to happen"
don't overestimate your own ability, etc. etc.

Cory
02-17-2010, 03:18 PM
Don't get me wrong i stop playing when I get angry, I'll walk away and go watch a movie or something but I'm not gonna completely give it up because even if it does make me angry at times, I do enjoy playing it ALOT. I wont be playing anymore in April anyways.

Zed
02-17-2010, 03:24 PM

There's a piece of bait dangling right in front of me that you know I, or at least someone on this site, won't be able to resist nibbling on. Go on then, you know you want to tell us what's happening in April. Let's get it over with.

MiniMan
02-17-2010, 03:59 PM
No I'm not gonna stop playing competitively.Well then enjoy being mad.

And evolving is about things being BETTER.

If a game that is fun to play with friends with no stress is not better than a stressful game that pays money to faggots who need anger management like you then people are really wacked out. (Namely, you)

MLG is for faggots, and you are not part of MLG. Ranking systems and online play is meant for competition, but just to add depth to the game. Obviously multiplayer is supposed to be competitive, but not so much as to get people worked up to the point of anger.


How do you think alot of competitive sports started? It was a game that evolved! Holyshit, things evolve? no wai

Oh, don't ****ing patronize me by sidestepping my point. Halo isn't a sport and it's nowhere near the same level as sports or other competitive physical activities. Halo and other video games focus on entertainment and you know that. If you're trying to elevate your position to that of a professional athlete then you're lost in your own world beyond anything anyone here can say.


Thats regardless, the point of this thread is to suggest ways to manage my anger, either do that or gtfo. Quit trying to imitate 2D and stop trolling and start being useful.

You do realize that someone can think someone is an idiot without imitating 2-D, right?

I am being useful, I'm trying to make you realize how ****ing dumb you are by going onto a forum to try and enlist the help of other people because you can't manage your anger towards a video game. You really can't see the idiocy in just saying that? If you get that angry the only thing that you can do about it is to back up and analyze what it is you're getting angry at. It's ****ing immature to get that worked up over something so pithy.

I feel you dude.
I love playing Halo competitively.

And I also agree with what the others are saying.

On topic: Just take a break, get a snack, get something to eat after like a couple matches start to frustrate you.
Take like a two minute walk or just think of a creative map in forge.

Okay, why don't you just keep telling him the same thing, but just put "seriously" in front of it.
That will make him do it.

Not everyone wants to exercise to blow off steam.
For some people it doesn't even work.

as usual, xcell can't take advice and sees attempts from people to help him as nothing but trolling. no wonder you blow up while you play video games. the reason you get the way you do during vidya games is because you aren't pleased with the outcome, same as with this thread. obviously you wanted people to sympathize with you or something and when you didn't get any of that, you accused everyone of trolling. grow up, xcell

Vorpal
02-18-2010, 12:00 AM
All I can say is just chill, I don't know how to explain it, you just gotta chill. If you let the game make you mad, the game is playing you, just reach the point where it doesn't matter if you lose and you should be fine.

Scarecrow

this man right here, the scarecrow or whatever you kids call him these days, he don't get mad no more

Go through the pages and you'll see half of the posts are d-bags trolling. Barely any one stayed on topic and gave advice. Thanks to those who did, you aren't a waste of a human being. To those who trolled (you know who you are, and if think you didn't troll then you shouldnt take offense to this), leave me alone for **** sake. Every time I post on SPP you troll me, just stfu already its old. We get it, you don't like me.If you unlock this thread then you're a faggot who likes it up the ass, which is already obvious

no, i decide when a thread ends and i honestly think you're just being a bitch right now because you couldn't get the answer you wanted. obviously you want some miracle cure to help you stop getting so mad when you play video games. might i suggest scarecrow's suggestion. i hear playing vidya games while high is quite the experience
