Anger Caused by Video Games.
 
I get frusterated at video games. It's a problem I've had ever since I had started playing them. I think it's serious. When I get angry, I throw down the controller, 60 bucks every week now. I have broken numerous consoles. I've spent over 5000 bucks on replacement items. When I get angry, I bang on my knee. Currently there is a huge bruse on my knee. I know it's just a video game, after I get angry. I need a way to get over this. Do I need to contact a doctor? I do not want to give up video games, I mean it's the only enjoyment I have. I know it doesn't matter if I lose, but what is the point in playing if you can't have fun?

I don't get angry. I have trouble playing games because of the images, worse with 3 d images. I get headaches both ways, I had to quit playing them. Try playing your games in black & white if your tv can be adjusted to that. Even when I use a computer, I have to tone most of the colors down. If it is too bright I can not handle it. The images are flashing to fast for your brain to understand-in my opinion. Good Luck.

While that is decent advice, I think I have more of an Anger-induced frustiration towards them. Turning the Images in black and white won't help me. Thank you for trying.
