Oh, fighting games can be so frustrating. Although if I'm among friends and we're having a winner-stays-on session, it's not uncommon to, rather than handing the controller, throw it at the next persons balls, if they're sitting right.

Although Fight Night on PS3 gets people more worked up than any game I've seen, and is oneof the best fighters I've played, the only letdown here is the PS3 controllers, which are a bit light. 360 are much better for taking the wind out out of your sails.

I've done quite a bit of research on this do games make people violent, to the point of writing a 2,500 word paper on it with diagrams and all sorts (Who doesn't like pictures?) and i dont think they do promote vuiolence for the majority of people. I reckon if you're already of a certain mindset then, maybe. But people who have even a small amount of self control shouldn't be affected.

yeah when i was little me and my brother used to get into fights over tekken 3 i think its 'cause fighting games can be so frustrating and there isn't really and intelligent argument to counter someone really owning you which especially if they're pleased about it. It's like trying to talk when they keep interrupting

on the other hand it think above the age of thirteen we really should have enough self-control to let it go and not resort to bludgeoning them with controllers

Sounds interesting, do you have that paper online somewhere?

I've been there a few times. Mostly with my brother. I think we both have some controller caused scars. Very cool article, congrats.

Brothers are wonderful sources of sibling violence. My brother used to get bored and try to wake me up by putting pencils in my nose. To this day I am violent when freshly awoken. Anyway, thanks for your wonderful comment.

See, I came across this out of context, and initially starting reading it as if it were a serious recount, and began to think wilson was a better of an amateur wrestler in his spare time.

It also works great as a bit of fiction too, though.
