Mode please move if needed.

Came across this video and I have no idea what to think about this. Seems the kid in the video was upset from playing Call of Duty 17hrs straight. He lost. But the next part was very disturbing as you will see...



what was going on here?

This is just another great example of what brings us all together here.

Respect though...when I played Civ4 for 17 hours straight or so I ended up having a epileptic attack and all the fun that comes with it ! hahah

have you ever seen someone take their world of warcraft away? ive honestly never played it but theres no end to the game, the online mmorpg's are lifesuckers...if you want to get rid of any social life you may have had, get it.



its much more common that i thought, i typed in kid freaking out then youtubes autocomplete filled in WOW.

i feel sorry for a lot of these kids brought up on the internet..how hard is homework when all you need is google? how developed are their social skills going to be when all they are used to is facebook and txting? when they see a girl in real life they will giggle like a little girl and run away..when it comes to porn, theres ppl that do their deed 5 times a day..doesnt that effect the libido? as a sometimes single guy i test myself to see how long i can go without.. 2 weeks is a good # to aim for.

btw if you ever have pesky neighbors who are eavesdropping on you, forget about loud AC/DC, turn on porn and you'll see them scatter like rats...it does so many things chemically to y our brain when you are turned on that you either have to do the deed or leave ..

anyway i can go on about the badness of the net but its how you use it, for news, resources, awesome..for the messed up, they get more messed up.

I skimmed through the posts and if you guys find that amusing then thats on you. Would you be ok with your kid acting that way?

Some of the videos that were posted were just obnoxious. Young boys, I would think spoiled young boys because they can break the controllers and their DSI and other electronics that dont come cheap anymore, and thats ok?

Someone posted if I am embarrassed...why? that is not my kid, husband, family, friend or neighbor. Like I said I just came across it. Didnt know if it was old or not. Didnt really care.

If it's not thread worthy then buddy...you have a whole list of topics outside this thread where you can contribute


I also didnt know this kind of gaming rage really existed as real people I know dont rage out like that on games and I dont go searching youtube for "spoiled, unattended kids, raging on video games"

Some of you think this is ok and normal. If this is going to be the majority after the older generation dies off then I think we have a problem.

Being a gamer of much knowledge and experience, I have admittedly become frustrated enough to throw a controller / hit a wall (keyboard, monitor, etc) over a game a few times in my life, but I have never broke down into tears hysterically nor have I ever had the urge to post a video on YouTube documenting myself punching things and sobbing over my 17 wasted hours of gameplay.

My two cents: The kid is either acting, or he's got some serious issues caused by something much deeper than a video game.

He just has his priorities wrong...

People would react like that to a family member or child dying, their home being taken away, being fired after years on the job... basically. He has no life outside of games and the majority of his time spent thinking is spent on games. This is what happens when children have one parent out to work all day and no mentor to help them through life. They get a warped perspective and never gain sight of the precious points of life!

Smokinsinger, same here. Ive had my share of beers among other things to "enhance" my gaming experience lol.
Ive been pissed plenty of times when losing after dedicating an hour or 3 to a hard level.

But i have never cried or been abusive to myself or my belongings thats why I find this disturbing. Especially if it's a big number of kids out there doing this.

I hope he is faking this also.

And thats whats scary!!

Noone died, lost a member or a home, just a game.

So what messages are we sending to these kids? Thats it ok?

I'll be damned if my kid breaks her electronics because she couldnt pass the game and control her anger. I would see that as a huge problem. Im trying to raise my kid to know right from wrong, truth from lies, etc, to be HUMAN.

It's his motivation behind posting a video that gets me. Why would someone who is that frustrated take the time to grab a camera, set it up, turn it on, and record himself throwing a tantrum over a game?? It makes less and less sense the more I think about it.

I think that can go 2 ways. It can be as simple as him faking it....

Or someone who was really calling for attention. Maybe his parents or family dont give a crap about him.

Why do people commit suicide live on the internet???

17 hours straight?? Wow. I think he is a really Gamer-Addict. Anyway it´s very sad thing to see the youth of today, reacting like that. Very sad thing indeed.

Peace

Regardless of whether the OP video is true fake or what have you, I think we have all witnessed or been aware of in our real lives gamer rage. It is real.

I know I have to really monitor my youngest sons video game habits, because he is prone to frustrations while playing. He lives with his father, but when he is here he tends to get upset because I limit play time. Its my house, my tv, and as the bread winning adult, I determine use of TV. Unfortunately too many parents buy their kids their own TV for their room, and thus the kid has no incentives or reason ro ever quit playing.

As far as breaking your gaming equipment, a parent who keeps buying their kid new electronics when they bust them up in a rage should have their head examined. My kids had no choice, we were dirt poor. They had to rely on generous friends if they broke a controller because I sure had no money to replace it.

In the OP video, the kid begins the video with a milk moustache and ends it by trying to destroy the video camera. Spoiled comes to mind.

Anyway, for those saying this kid was on drugs, there does not need to be involvement of illegal drugs for this type of behavior, only unfettered access to the game. The game itself causes the rage not illegal drugs. Caffeine is usually hand in hand with gamers, and may contribute to more intense feelings of rage.

However, the horror for the OP comes with the stark fear of this gamer raging generation being our future.

The kid had plenty of adult help in becoming the monster you perceive him to be. In fact he is who he is because of them.

I was under the impression children stopped throwing their controllers after junior high.

How could these pansy kids ever handle the old Coleco, Arati, NES and early PC games where you got three lives and had to make it through 400 levels of awful jumps and random flying death dealing entities?

Spend 6 hours getting further than ever just to miss a ledge. No continues, no saves, no passwords. Just frustrating hell and real-world pain. Those games of the 70's and 80's were the driving force behind the popularity of grunge and depression in the 90's. No doubt about it.
