um...no...not even close.

I tell myself that money doesn't grow on trees and it keeps me from throwing them.

My original white controller, the left joystick, when I direct it to the left, it kinda sticks, thats about it

Throw and break 1 controller, fine... Maybe even 2, but 10? How can you afford to be that angry?

I have never thrown a controller. Even though most times when I'm playing I have the urge to, I dont.

I've never broken a controller. Growing up my parents bought our games, and we weren't rich so we knew if we broke something it would be a while before it got replaced so we took care of our things. Now I buy all my own stuff but still I'm not going to throw anything. If a game pisses me off that much I'll just play something else. I'd rather spend money on new games then controllers.

I never broken a controller. One of the controllers I own, is kinda fucked up however. Since I played Mirror's Edge a bit too intensive with it...Damn you star achievement....

I tend to throw things that are designed to be thrown...like a ball.
When it comes to controllers i tend to hold them in my hand and use them to play games.

Put these two rules together and you end up with controllers that don't break for years.
Hope that helps.

I only threw my controllers when I was a child and I didn't do it much then. Maybe 1 or 2 times. Now I am all grown up and I never throw them. I have had urges to throw them. When that happens I take a break. Maybe you should get a punching bag to take out your anger on? Instead of $50 controllers.

Lulz were had.

But seriously, I've never even come close to throwing a controller. The most frustrated I've ever been was getting that mile high achieve in cod4, and that just turned into a profanity-laced half hour.

Controllers are like $40+, what a waste of money. Maybe get one of those wristbands they have for the Wii controllers....

Yeah I've been plenty mad and maybe tossed a controller here or there, but I've never been so angry that I threw a controller against a wall or something and broke it.

If you have seriously broken 10 controllers you need to take breaks from gaming it sounds like and do something else for a while. Either that or stop playing whatever it is that gets you pissed off.

I've broken one controller but that was completely accidental.

Perhaps go to Anger Management and the money saved from not throwing controllers can pay for the therapy.

Broken 10 controllers? Do you live on the 10th floor and have a very large window? Are you constantly being tea-bagged on COD? Do you pitch for the New York Yankees?

i have never broken a controller.

Me either! The things aren't cheap!!!

I bought (cheap) non-working black controller (original... broken left thumbstick) and red w/ black thumbsticks and accents, etc. (bumpers didn't work) and made a working all black controller before they came out with the x360s and all black controller. lol. I couldn't been rich (haha).

That cobbled together controller I made has been working fine for over a year even with the abuse it gets from my boyfriend. No throwing it, but he complains he hits the thumbstick buttons on accident (???) when I have to make an effort to press them.

I have broken 3. All from being thrown or smashed against the ground. I have kept 1 of the broken 1s to throw instead of my working ones. I will admit I have anger issues my old copy of the darkness will vouch for that lol. Also broken 2 wired headsets through light anger flare ups, they break so easy T.T

If you have broken over 3 controllers from throwing them, you have a problem. You should seek help. If you have broken 10 controllers from throwing them, you have a incurable disease. You will die.

I've broken a few by throwing them around the room, but not quite 10. Not that I keep count of such an embarressing habit... :(

I've done this a couple of times, but I've thrown it at a soft target (i.e bed or sofa) not at a wall or at the floor. Yes I have money but not that much to supply me with endless controllers to thrown at hard objects.

I've also got a bite mark on one of my PS1 controllers, but that's another story...

I've broken two controllers. Well technically my 2 year old son broke them, he likes throwing things in the toilet. But I knew that and didn't put them out of his reach, so my bad. Now he'd have to be Spiderman to get them and what do you know.... No broken controllers.

I've never broken a controller before, and most people that do have a general anger issue. Anyway my controllers would generally have the Joy-sticks jammed one way or another, until I learned that if you open up your controller there is a fine layer of grim, dirt, and dead skin under the Joy-stick that accumulates over time. Once removed that tends to fix it unless you do button mashing, like your trying to mash potatoes, then there should be no problem after which.

I've only broken one controller...a rise and spike when playing Battletoads. I looked at it, and went wtf did I do that for. Lesson learned, lol.
