If there were a champion of game rage, we have a serious contender.
A fellow by the name of Skarma dropped me an email describing–with no shortage of detail–his dark history with the game Gran Turismo 4. In his own words:
“I have actully gone through 7 PS2 controllers so far on just that ONE game, 6 of which I still have in my possession. The 7th I destroyed it so badly its nonexistent.”
Stuck at 99%, he finally directed his rage away from the controllers and toward the game, having “wiped the floor with it”.
The game’s true legacy in Skarma’s life will probably be the scars (skars?) decorating his parents’ house:
“I no longer have a door on my room anymore and almost every door in my house has a huge hole or 2 thats been punched in it.”
Jesus. Feel free to browse some of Skarma’s handy work:
