So, after putting in a mighty shift of dead space 2 hardcore resisting many save temptations I decided to make my second save at chapter 9 before the tripod nest. Things started getting tougher as I reached chapter 8 but recovered nicely and was nearing the goal... this was until a misplaced shot resulted in Colonel Sanders and his army of popcorn chicken putting an end to me.. 

Anyway, now I'm back at chapter 6 and really not feeling another attempt right now so instead I'm asking you guys about your most frustrating gaming moments and the reaction that ensued.

Black Ops Veteran, Khe San.

The part where you have to kick those Napalm Barrels down the hill. After finishing the game on Veteran I just uninstalled it and I haven't touched it since.

That's how I deal with nerd rage.

It depends on how much time I've put in. If it's a couple of minutes, like trying to kill a dragon in Skyrim that seems to always pull out the one-hit chomp kill, then I'll keep going. If it's literally hours, I will stop, turn the game off, take it out of the drive and maybe never touch it again.

Eg. Dead Space 2 on Hardcore, funnily enough. I'd been going for about an hour and a bit, and had been doing quite well. I was up to Chapter 5, and was going through the freezers, when I turn the corner, and walk straight into a puker waiting there. It vomits; I die. I have not touched it since.

In terms of most frustrating, though, it has to be getting the Kid in Super Meat Boy. I spent hours on it, and I was so tired afterwards. And I'm not even sure if it was ultimately worth my time.

I don't.

I yell at the top of my lungs, and then throw boxes around.
