I hate combat in games, but I solve that by playing on easy so I can blow through it as fast as possible. :P If combat's too hard I tend to just stop playing.

Outside of combat, like a really hard puzzle or something -- I don't get angry, just determined.

When I was younger ~(9-13) they sometimes did. It was like reading/playing along with a book to me.

As an adult they don't frustrate me. I play video games/mmorpg to relax and unwind now.

I tend to avoid games with pvp. xD
Even though Dark Souls does have it but it's a great system where you can easily avoid it and even if you do get killed, you don't like loose EVERYTHING.^^

I'll say here and there. Sometimes when you come across something that seems so impossible, it makes you mad. Up until you work it out of course. :D I had a bit like that in The Legend Of Zelda: TP that I recall. Glitches are annoying too. I remember when my friend got Diablo 2. Man that thing was buggy on release. And Morrowind on the XBOX. :stare: :-( My gosh. That was painful. My last save of that had a nice rainbow coloured speckled map, it was that good at getting stuff corrupt.
And last night I was trying to get ol’ Need For Speed High Stakes working. Turns out it just needed re-installing. ;P
And lots of people say the Sonic games were easy, but I always found them very challenging. I guess I'm not a big platformer fan. Although I like Cool Spot. :-)

I voted here and there. Gotta be honest. It's not real anger though as much as it is annoyance I think. Only when I play things online though, Mario Kart 8, Smash Bros and bad luck just starts piling up. Barely ever in single player games.

Bloodborne, man. I loved it overall, and all of the main bosses were reasonable, but some of the optionals are just insultingly and arbitrarily hard.

Same in Dark Souls. Optional bosses can be such dicks. But that's why it's good that they're optional. :lol:

I need a new laptop for Sims 3 though. Wore my video card, not to the point of it quit working, but to the point where even the base game makes my laptop overheat. :(
At least there's Sims 2. I still love that one. :D

My laptop overheats very badly. Causes a lot of problems. Not a computer whiz, so I don't know how I'd fix that. Might just get a new one ^^*

I've been considering getting a new one myself for a while now, but I'll need to get another job soon. Not to mention a lot of the better ones are kinda expensive. I did find some 500-700 dollar ones with good enough video cards for Sims 3 (and probs Minecraft since that game ran sorta slow on my laptop in better graphics settings). My laptop's battery is also getting kinda crappy, so that'll need to be replaced soon.

Oh jees, that's still pretty pricey. Mine was 600 I think. Definitely cannot afford that xD I'll have to get a job very soon. My laptop battery is completely dead, due to the screen being shattered for months, resulting in it never being used.

LadySomnambule Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Your screen shattered? Yikes! I think my battery started to go downhill about a month or more ago since I always kept mine plugged in (stupid idea), and it got worse last time I attempted to get Sims 3 to work, uninstalling it and just installing the base game, which overheated my laptop again (it didn't used to do that a year or so ago, I swear). My laptop's an old Toshiba from like 2012, and I got it around 2013 or so, and it's seen better days, being a bit slower than it used to be.

600 is a lot better than 1000 or 2000 imo. Anything over 700, in my book, is too much. I'm also having some trouble finding a good laptop with Windows 7 on it that's NOT out of stock, and I was mainly looking for refurbished ones. Most of what I found had Windows 8 installed, which I think I can get used to. I bet when Windows 10 comes out, it would probs be better than 8. It would be like Windows Vista and 7 all over again, with Vista being the buggy slow one and 7 being the better one.

Oh gosh I keep mine plugged in 24/7 (mostly because I can't use it without it being plugged in, and I'm on my laptop 24/7) I got mine in 2013 as well, it's a Hp, a notebook i think. Not very good, but it runs. I totally agree with you on prices.  I like windows 8, though I've had some problems.

Ja doch es gab einige Momente, wo ich voll sickig war, aber das war auch irgendwie ein Ansporn gewesen gerade dieses Hindernis zu überwinden (und ich mir vorgestellt habe wie es wäre, wenn mich das Spiel deswegen ausgelacht hätte, als ich in einem Level nich weiterkam |D)

I picked "once in a blue moon". But it's more like frustration than actual anger. With a lot of games, I know I can just look up a guide to help me out.

Es gibt wenige Momente, wo Videospiele mich wütend bzw. eher traurig machen.
Wenn ich jahrelang Animal Crossing spiele und dann nach einem Monat Pause wieder anmache und einfach einer meiner Lieblingsbewohner ausgezogen ist zum Beispiel. Das zieht mich runter, weil ich durchaus ein RealLife und andere Hobbys habe und nicht jeden Tag die Verpflichtung haben möchte, in ein Spiel gucken zu müssen.
Oder es zieht mich runter, wenn ich in einem Spiel nicht alles kriegen kann. Oft komplettiere ich eh nichts, aber ich mag es einfach nicht, wenn z.B. eine Enyklopedie der Ingame-Monster existiert, man aber um die Monster einzutragen bei jedem einzelnen ein Untersuchungsitem einsetzen muss. Wenn man einen Bossgegner dann ohne vorherigen Scan killt, kriegt man den Eintrag niemals. Find ich zum kotzen.
Sonst eigentlich nicht.
Es frustriert manchmal, wenn man etwas länger nicht schafft, aber ich hör dann einfach auf zu zocken, bis ich wieder Bock habe xD

Ich kenn das aber, ich mag's nicht gern wenn Achievements zB nur in Co-op Mode erzielt werden können. Wenn du dann niemanden hast, der mit dir spielen kann, ist das schon etwas blöd.
