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

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.
