Anger Management

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Forum

Anger Management

     Hi. I play Call of Duty a lot, and I get really angry fairly often. I either end up shouting at the TV and freaking my neighbors out, or holding back, forgeting to breathe and end up with a massive headache. I want to get this under control and not be the kind of guy you see on a "kid freaks out on MW3" type of video. I think there are enough people in this community with similar issues to understand my situation, and I hope that somebody can give me some advice on how to deal with anger in video games. Please be mature about this, it's a serious issue.

     Thanks

Its the same with me, only applies to this game. I wonder why..

I cannot control myself on this game, the only way to stop myself is to get off or play another game

It really happens to me whenever I do poorly in ANY game. I just posted this here because its a popular forum where people can relate to anger issues in games

Do you have Black Ops??

If you do, everytime you get annoyed online go into combat training and place the bots on recruit, run Chopper + Dogs and rain down hell on them, it makes you feel better from the beating you just took or the bullshit deaths you just took.

Could work with survival but its not very fun IMO.

yeah. I do that every so often, but combat training gets boring. I just want to be able to enjoy games, and deal with them maturely when things don't go my way

For a start I try to tell myself during the countdown, keep calm, forget the idiots, once I stop thinking about how bullshit it is I usually I can avoid it.

Used to happen to me all the time, I don't know why, but I've calmed down. I only find myself getting upset when a game drags on with the same people. Once I start getting used to people's playstyles, I guess I start nitpicking, I'm not quite sure, though.
