I twisted/bent my controller out of anger and it broke in half. This happened after the game froze the 5th time in a row in Star Ocean 4's Wandering Dungeon, on 16th floor...

Twisting the controller with my hands is usually my habit when I get really mad. Normally it doesn't break, but when I get really mad and the adrenaline kicks in... it can happen, lol. Game freezes and power outages in what makes me mad the most. Since when I die in a game It's usually because of my weakness so I can simply grind and get stronger, but if it's the game that freezes... it's not my fault, and that's what usually makes me really mad.

"I just take a deep breath and keep trying."

I picked that, but what I really do is cuss a whole lot and then do that. I like to go running, so that helps sometimes and is healthy too.

Do something else is also a nice go-to
I mean even if you could connect those dots, which I don't think you can, what kind of picture would you really draw?

I usually just slam my controller around and punch the walls, doors, desk, etc. I've punched through many walls, doors, and and broken my desk several times.

When I get really mad, I'll punch myself in the stomach or the face. Or I'll go find my girlfriend and push her around and be really mean to her.

I broke my HDTV once by throwing my controller at it. I know its stupid but until then I had no idea how fragile they were. I was used to playing on CRTs which can take a really good punch. It was Wipepout HD that made me do it. I was so addicted to it that after I broke the TV I just hooked it up to another TVand kept playing.

That's funny. I remember grabbing an old TV and yelling at it back in the day. They could take a punch too.. I wouldn't dare do that to my LCDs now.
