Hmm..I find this to be a good question. I think something rage inducing to me would be along the lines of being on a hard game on the hardest setting, something like Mass Effect or Gears of War 3. I think X-Men Origins: Wolverine could count to some extent. Anyway, something on hard alone or in a group and then this certain level just continously kicking your ass. To make it extremly rage inducing, it takes a few hours to finally beat the level in question but because it was so bad it makes you range from swearing often, to full blown shouting at the tv and possibly even breaking things. :P

That..and playing some really horrible game for the first time, then realising you will need to either ignore it, or play through and get the gamerscore from it (Superman Returns, Eragon)

Wow, this is an awesome question. I can vent and have a chance to win something...Too Cool.

I tend to be a very passive player but when I reach my breaking point for the love of all, RUN. When I am playing shooters (GOW3, Reach, CODs) then it is spawn killers, campers and do nothing teammates that will slowly boil me. I Hate even more when a multiplayer game will split a group of friend and he teamkills the entire match, or even worse takes down your health and gives the other team an easy kill.

Another thing that ticks me off is games where you have to find every little collectible (Batman, Lego anything) and some of them are effin impossible to find unless you have a computer next to you or you use cheats.

I could go on but I'm done.

Wow! How to limit this down? Well, lets put it to this one then...

The thing that makes me rage most about games in general, is racist, sexist, homophobic and generally rude and offensive gamers. We all know there's no way to really put a stop to it, but it makes me mad that the stereotype 360 gamer is a teenage-foul-mouthed-CoD-player and I get lumped in with that group so often.

Also, in regards to games themselves - I hate that people complain about the lack of variety in games, yet still insist on buying the next churned out shovelware, sports-game-of-the-year, and first-person-war game. Then those same people will avoid buying more out-there titles because of unfamiliarity or other stupid reasons. I say, if you want variety avoid the latest yearly clone game and spend it on MSPs, then download something awesome from XBLA (and not the latest CoD map-pack or Bat-skins!... yeah, crappy DLC makes me rage too! :P )

Hopefully, if I don't win - whoever does will do so too!

What rages me the most is that i expect to get what i paid for in a game like WWE 12 i expected the community creations server to be fixed but they i mean THQ never fixed it and i wanted more in the DLC's for the game yet they give us crappy wrestlers like Michael Cole it could of been someone better like Grand Master Sexay or Adam Bomb. And another thing is that rages me the most is that UFC on Live is only US and Canada.

Whilst I don't expect to win, what makes me rage is any game where a logical fallacy occurs, that is to say, something that happens that just REALLY shouldn't have decided to appear at THAT moment.

I have many, many tales but some of such include:

Being 'Splattered' in a reversing tank on Halo Reach, spawning through barriers on Halo Reach, being shot from glitched locations in Battlefield 3, falling through scenery in Skyrim, getting stuck in Skyrim due to a quest update failure glitch, etc.

Raging sometimes just doesn't cover it, it's disheartening, sometimes I'd sooner put down the controller with a sigh of realization and inwardly weep...Because let's all be honest, broken controllers are expensive. :(

So yeah, here's one to all you gamers who took a physics engine fail to the face and kept on trucking regardless of how big that throbbing vein on your forehead got, I feel and share in your pain daily.

Make games, not war. <3

The MOST memorable to date is:

Guitar Hero 3:
Slipknot - Before i forget - Expert

I struggled for literally 2 weeks trying to get passed that song LOL.. i kept playing and playing.. slowly gettin better.. and then.. just when i was about to finish it..

99'Feckin' PERCENT!! LAST NOTE!!

I MISSED IT!! A SINGLE.. GOD DAMN NOTE!!!!! AND I FAILED IT!!!!!

Ive never been so angry in my life.. it still winds me up thinkin about it :@

I did leave Guitar hero for about 3 days after that, went back failed quite a few times more.. and guess what??! YES IT HAPPENNED AGAIN!! GRRRAAAAAWWWWHHHHH!!!!! I actually had to leave the house and run it off :/

However.. I did pursue with it a bit more after that and got past it.. little did i know that Slayer and Metallica were coming up soon.. i was pretty much screwed from the get go. LOL!

I will let you know tho, i have since passed all campaigns on Expert.. so perseverance really does go a long way ;) Just expect a few BUMPS along the way ;D

What makes me rage is when i can't get past a part of a game and need to finish the level im on.One of these levels i speak of is Sonic unleasheds final stage level which is a mix of normal sonic and his werehog version of him and this is a very long level, and with almost 45 minutes of play time on it's level i realised i must be nearing the end.First a room with a big titan beast i have to beat is in there and they are murder to beat by themselves and other enemies are there to, after a close shave im in the next room expecting the end when i seen two titans together, i try my hardest to dodge and kill them but they are barraging me with attacks. I managed to beat one but the other was still attacking me it was down to low health i was about to win intill , game over i lost i was going mad , i couldn't believe i lost.Later that day i checked on youtube how close i was to the end, it was the last enemy , THE LAST ENEMY !!!!
Ye and this has happened on many difirent games =(
