A true sophistocrat should and would know that in Mike Tyson's Punch out for the Nintendo entertainment gaming system -- One cannot beat the hometown favorite in decision. This was clearly labeled in the beautifully illustrated booklet that came with the game. No matter how many rounds you fought him, no matter how many times you knocked him down -- the judges would always claim he won. The same could be said for super Macho and Soda Popinski.
As a sophisticated gamer with a sophisticated taste I am here to represent my fellow, like minded, Sophistocrats -- You're welcome.

Mike Tyson in Punchout on the NES made me cry tears of frustration when I was a kid. I remember one time I knocked him down more times than he did me and I swore I'd finally won by decision. Nope..piece of **** still won. I kicked my NES, chucked the controller across the room and went outside to play with my friends. I became the hulk when I lost to him and wanted to smash things around me. To this day I have never beat him. He pissed me off so bad that I ended up borrowing my cousin's game genie to beat his ass down.
Funny that you mentioned that game, because the instruction manual contained a quote
"anger clouds the mind"
And in regards to gaming, i've stood by it since that day. Any time I get stuck in a game and get frustrated as hell, I know i'm not going to beat it until I chillax.
To this day, it's always paid off. And I beat Mike Tyson on my NES. All it took was landing my first punch, for me to see that he wasn't unbeatable (prior to that i'd never landed a hit on him)

I flipped the table. Literally. With my feet.
I got so angry I bit my cousin. I was 8 and I got slapped so hard. That sure told me not to get that upset over a video game. Heh. If only someone slapped every angry little kid online like that.
My worst moment was trying to do all the courses in mirror mode on Mario Kart: Double Dash. The computer was being insanely cheap and I had just been playing for so long trying to unlock everything that my anger boiled up to a pure rage and I yelled "YOU PIECE OF F***!!" at the top of my lungs and flung the controller as hard as I could into the wall. It literally exploded into about a hundred pieces. My blood pressure started to drop back down almost immediately and I let out a sheepish, "Oh s***." before chastising myself for losing control. In a way it worked out okay, though. I eventually replaced it with a fourth Wavebird for my 'Cube.

My homeboy beat me with a lucky half court 3 pointer at the buzzer in NBA 2K12. I got so mad I punched him in the face and broke his nose and he cried LOL. We laugh about it now though.
Now he won't sit anywhere near you during a game haha.
What are you waiting for? Christmas?
NY Minute Mode on Max Payne 3 drove me nuts, especially when I died near the end of a level I'd spent hours trying to beat. God it felt good when I completed it.
DLC is a method of corporate profiteering. Will you buy into it?
WoW every time I saw patch notes that nerfed every one off my characters and buffed every other one. Which playing as a retadin in WOTLK was EVERY patch. And I just took out my anger by continuing our 4k PVP 2v2 and 3v3 rating. That or just playing my DK and roflcopter owning damn near everything player boss or enemy alike since they just kept getting more OP as the expansion went on :/

When I was younger I would throw and break controllers sometimes.
I haven't done anything in an act of video game rage for probably 6 or 7 years until I just played Uncharted 2 for the first and caught myself right before throwing the controller though my TV. I kinda fumbled and lightly tossed it, but it was close. God did that game piss me off, I can't wait to never play it again.

My nephew started a new game over my 70+ pokemon red save. I don't ever destroy my stuff. why would i destroy a controller then have to pay another $60 for a new one? Thats just punishing myself further.
