    Default Ever punish yourself for losing or playing poorly?

    I used to punch or slap myself in the face for dying. Today I just did that again, it's been years, though. Anybody else inflict pain on themselves because of a game?

    Nope, but I definitely punch or slap others for beating me.

    Nah. I usually walk away from it and come back later to see if I'm any closer to being "in the zone."

    Repeat after me...it's just a game. :P

    I used to punch the bookshelf I sit next to while playing really hard every time I screwed up or did something stupid in a game. That stopped though after a welt the size of a golf ball appeared on my knuckle. The $200 doctor bill sucked too.

    Man, I wish I took some pictures of it. That wound was gnarly.

    i've never hurt or punished myself(on purpose) but sometimes i slam my wireless into the bed or the pillows, or fall backwards onto the bed, or punch my beanbag.

    I usually get mad at the designers because I manage to convince myself that whatever is giving me trouble is a stupid thing that should never have been put in the game in the first place. Mainly I just sigh in exasperation and shake my head at their "poor judgement."

    Wow, just wow. Maybe I punched a pillow or swore a couple times loudly, but punching yourself in the face? Thats getting a little extreme.

    I went to some random arcade once with a friend here in Los Angeles. My friend played some gangtser at Street Fighter 3rd Strike and my friend gave him a BOMB ASS WHOOPING! Then the gangstar comes and pushes my friend............what he didnt see was me coming at him with all my power and BOOOM right in his jaw. We ran to the car so fast you wouldnt believe that a fat guy would run so fast !

    I am a slight masochist. Not in the sexual sense, but to some degree I do enjoy my own pain. I'd say maybe a 2 on a scale of 1-10. People who slice themselves or sit on beds of nails, now THAT'S taking it too far.

    Worst I've done is hit my hand with my fist, kind of like how youd do if you had a baseball glove. Doesn't hurt any.

    I'd choke my brother with the SNES controller cord after he'd laugh at me for falling off of Rainbow Road in SMK.

    Does that count?

    Ages ago I spiked a genesis controller right into my toes. That didn't feel very good.
