Are you an animated gamer? If yes, How animated?
« on: April 29, 2013, 01:47:06 am »
Notice: If you aren't really doing a variation of the options in the poll, or are doing it "subtly", then I do not consider you an animated gamer.*1

For me, I'm the forth option. I'll go full blown standing up and moving around while cursing the tv/monitor when I get into games.

If I'm not totally into the game, I will be a combination of the second and third.

Even when playing TCO, I'll shove my chair back and start yelling saying something like "WHY THE F*** DIDN'T YOU F***ING MOVE BACK! DAMNIT (insert character name here) DON'T BE AN IDIOT!!" haha ^^;

*1: I noticed a few people that I wouldn't consider animated gamers, so I figured I'd elaborate on my definition of an animated gamer.

animated gamer? what...?

btw i don't understand why u typo'd the title like that when ur english is so fine elsewhere and in the post itself.

anyways, i don't really FI to any of those options, but i picked the 1st coz it's the closest. however i'm more like "ah f*** me" in a more gentle way.

so instead of raging it's more like being disappointed in something. in ur example, if a character didn't move like i wanted it to, i'd just probably laugh at it, lol.
"Wohoo, we spent five hundred kay on the ground, isn't that great? I love wasting money."

There is no type in the title. You're just under educated.

Anyway, back to topic. Then I would have to say that you are not an animated gamer. Everyone has a little something when they get frustrated, just like your "ah f*** me". For me, it varies between standing up (and pretty much just leaving the area), to making people think I have a mental problem. Haha.

"Is yes, How amintated?"

if this is educated, then yes, i'm under educated. but i think it should read "if yes, how animated?"

 ;D

Well, I voted for a combination of some of them. While gaming I do some really ridiculous things sometimes. I often yell at me, God, or the monitor. I too stand up and start cursing someone...often my sister(don't ask me why). I do other things such as start hitting the wall with my head(okay, i don't do this...) and kicking the ground(not literally of course). When I get too frustrated, I try to meditate a little and think about it, because perhaps there is another way to do what I want... If it doesn't work then I say "It's a conspiracy" and go to sleep ::).

Ah. You are right. I'm sorry. Please forgive my rudeness. I thought you were talking about "animated" being a typo.

Could I get a moderator to change it? :D

Edit the OP's subject to change the topic name.
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

Umm... anger management?

Just joking :D

I get angry all the time when gaming, I just control it and don't let it affect others or me or anything else. Everyone gets angry, it's how you act on it that makes you an awesome guy or a jerk that no one likes to game with :)

Especially in multiplayer games like Dota I used to get really frustrated and would literally curse under my breath and really try to get back at the player who messed me up. Then I realised it was affecting my enjoyment of the game, my performance at the game, and affecting other people too, friends teammates etc. Now I've changed my mentality. During Dota, this is my checklist when something makes me mad:
Was it my fault?
Yes = ah well, think about how I can improve so it doesn't happen again
No = ah well, nothing I can do then, think about what I can do now

In any situation, just think rationally. Sit back, ah well, and think about what you can do now to fix it rather than on what's already happened. That immediately kills the anger and activates the positive part of your brain.

Sounds like that came straight from a text book. Haha.

Well, yes you are right, in if you let it effect others. However, every human requires some sort of stress relief. Which comes in a huge variety of ways, because everyone is different.

While logically, the "safest" way to deal with stress, is to stop, take a deep breath, and rationalize the situation. There are people who are not rational thinkers, so that is not the best way for that person to deal with stress. So they may have to do something like, go play a sport, or something physical; Others may need to just rant and rave for awhile until they've cooled down.

Now while I do get very animated when I game. It does not effect the people around me, it may decrease/increase my gameplay depending on why I'm getting animated. However, it is never directed at another person, just the game itself or me.

I am actually a mixture of doing something physical, ranting and raving for awhile, as well as rationalizing it. I use different methods depending on a variety of factors; Such as level of stress, previous mood, time of day, level of tiredness. The list goes on from there, but you should be able to get the idea.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not thinking straight if I'm stressed out with anger, so it's not like a math equation that I calculate in my head. It is more of something that has become habit after a lot of practice.

I've had my fair share of neighbours comming at my door for yelling at the monitor too loud.
JK
I chose nr 1 but I don't exactly yell at my PC.I just subtly swear to it and threaten to murder his entire family.

Ok , maybe not..

Well I dont do such stuff in the polls lolz. If things didnt turn out the way I want, then well too bad then. I may subtly cuss but thats about it and I'll either move on, continue playing or just take a break.
