  1. I keep breaking my controllers (out of anger, annoyance or stress)


    I play a lot of action games and sometimes I find kill stealers, general d*cks, and spammers on fighting games.

    I normally tend to just shout a swear word at the T.V. and maybe hit the side of the sofa with my elbow, but in some extreme cases I take it out on my controller, maybe hitting the left handle on my knee, whacking the handle with the palm of my hand, and
    (rarely) throwing it against the floor.

    This eventually ends up in the side cracking open, the battery pack not holding the batteries properly (making them fall out) and causing my analog stick to freeze in place or become loose.

    Recently I've been able to control it but sometimes I let loose.

    I'm tired of forking out £20-£30 for a new controller, so I want some help on what to do.

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    Indestructible Controller!

    My controller has been thrown across the room and into other objects before, without breaking. While I wouldn't recommend using the controller as a stress-relief toy, I'm definitely guilty of taking my anger at a game out on my controller. I keep breaking my controllers (out of anger, annoyance or stress) :p

    LegitWilliam77 hey there I keep breaking my controllers (out of anger, annoyance or stress) :)

    Honestly, the best thing for you to do is get a punch bag or a pillow or something. If you get angry or annoyed, just beat it out on those. You won't get a cheaper controller 1st hand that is official, so your safest bet is to channel your anger away from
    the controller and save yourself some pennies.

    I hope this helps.

    Many thanks,

    Has any one has problem with xbox controller rb and lb breaking?

    Hello, it might be because of stress or anger in multiplayer matches. i broke my left stick in halo 3 match back in my days because of a too strong press, but it was on xbox 360. Just your constant breaks seem to be very interesting, have never heard of
    anything like it

    How upset do you get at games???

    I don't usually get really annoyed or upset at games, the annoyance or anger usually fades after a couple of seconds. I don't think I've ever broken something in anger at a game, but boy... Apex Legends for the last 2 weeks has tested my limits.

    my Xbox cannot connect TO ANYTHING

    also being in a perpetual state of annoyance and anger for literal hours makes the rage rather hard to contain
