Top 10 Hilarious Gamer Rage Quits and Freakouts
Clearly not everyone knows the phrase, 'It's only a game.' Welcome to and today we're counting down our picks for the Top 10 Hilarious Gamer Rage Quits and Freakouts.
For this list, we're looking angry outbursts from video game fans that leave us cracking up. We're basing our picks on a mix of excessive screaming, property damage and the overall nonsense some gamers let out on a bad day.

#10: Naked Screaming Character
"Rust" (2018)

Naked characters in 'Rust' are usually either new players getting started or people trying to cause mischief. So when Twitch streamer SujiEun sees a nude player online, his group starts chasing them down. The sudden crying and swearing from the naked player is so goofy that SujiEun and his friends keep breaking up from laughing. The silence as he dies is comedic as well, and one teammate suggests through his laughter that he can barely breathe. Since people don't usually role-play death this extremely in video games, this 'Rust' gamer is an amazing treat.

#9: Professional Freakout
"World of Warcraft" (2004)

The player-versus-player matches at the Intel Extreme Masters 'World of Warcraft' tournament require a lot of fast-thinking and coordination. All this pressure gets to Swarm from SK Gaming in the middle of a match, as his directions devolve into insults towards his teammates. Swarm looks like a child as he waves his arms and shouts at everyone. His attempt to walk away from the match has us in stitches, since he returns to his chair seconds later. All the mean yelling is so hysterical that even Swarm's teammate is smiling while he tries to defuse the situation. By resorting to phrases like 'No one likes you' at a professional event, Swarm loses it in the most amusing way possible.

#8: The Happy Hob

Between their punishing enemies and environments, FromSoftware's 'Souls' and 'Bloodborne' games have developed a reputation for their brutal difficulty. The Happy Hob challenged himself even more for his Twitch stream, when he attempted to beat all five of the 'Soulsborne' games without taking a single hit. With only 'Demon's Souls' remaining in one of his aptly-titled 'God Runs,' The Hob was hit minutes into the game. It was hard not to laugh as The Happy Hob screamed and then painfully realized his entire session was over. Though it was satisfying watching him finally complete the 'No-Hit' marathon, (xref) his freak out over losing was intensely crushing and hilarious. The Happy Hob's reaction was deserved however, given the hours of playtime he invested to get there.

#7: "Rage Quit: Sonic"
"Sonic The Hedgehog" (2006)

It’s a well known fact by now that Sonic 06 was a terrible game, and slow overworld in particular drew plenty of complaints from critics. Michael from Rooster Teeth’s 'Rage Quit' exploded at this section of the game in his run-through, as he struggled to start playing an actual level. His frustration at all the bad camera angles and talking mechanics became funnier as he mocked them too. The palpable disappointment when Michael finally played a level however, only added to the humor. But it was his full on breakdown at the back-to-back loading screens that gave the clip its most riotously hilarious moment.

#6: Team Rage Compilation
"Counter-Strike: Source" (2004)

The intensity of first-person shooters like 'Counter-Strike: Source ' can cause people to yell, and bad matches only bring out more of this behavior. Martin is ticked off so often by 'Counter-Strike' that someone around him sets up a camera to film his tantrums. His surprise over every death is hysterical, especially as he starts calling everything 'impossible.' His outbursts are so extra, that his calm reaction to actually spotting an enemy are a funny surprise as well. Martin's temper also results in some wacky feral noises, and his giggle-inducing 'Bink' yells. Whether he's unlucky or just bad, Martin's childish reactions are comedic gold.

#5: Punching A Wall
"Super Smash Bros. for Wii U" (2014)

In the competitive 'Super Smash Bros.' scene, plenty of gamers get heated over the high stakes battles. In a rush of post-game rage, John Numbers slams his fist and makes a hole in the wall next to him. His shock at his own mistake is priceless, since Numbers immediately looks like he's in trouble.
The commentators' giddy laughter is contagious too, and they sound like they can barely breathe. While Number's punch seems pretty ridiculous on its own, it's easy to crack up when you see the wall itself. Though some salty behavior is typical for a 'Smash' tournament, this level of destruction is unexpectedly crazy.

#4: More DOTS More DOTS
"World of Warcraft" (2004)

When Onyxia's Lair was still a 40-person raid, it was one of the most difficult challenges in 'World of Warcraft.' This led to a lot of frustration for Dives, a guild leader who passive aggressively ordered his team around this dungeon. His aggressive use of in-game lingo like whelps and DKP sounded like cartoonish gibberish too. All the yells of acronyms like 'More dots' and 'Stop dots' were particularly hilarious, regardless of your knowledge of 'World of Warcraft.' One crudely-animated adaptation of the rant by a player named Deluthor was hysterical simply because it interpreted all the terminology so literally. The 'World of Warcraft' team even found enough humor in Dives' rambling to create the 'More Dots!' and 'Many Whelps! Handle It!' achievements.

#3: Monitor and Wall Smash
"StepMania" (2001)

'StepMania' lets players enjoy the fast-paced rhythm-gaming of 'Dance Dance Revolution' using only their fingers. So as TeRa shows off his own amazing hand-eye coordination to the song 'Made of Fire', he lands nearly 600 notes in a row. One small mistake sets off his fury however, and he comically slams his monitor. After the few tears you can spot in the background at first, the massive dent we see behind his monitor is ludicrous. It's genuinely difficult not to cackle as TeRa trashes his monitor, especially when he blames the screen for his damaged wall. While the havoc he wreaks on his computer is silly to watch, the irony of 'StepMania' being burned into TeRa's screen is too sweet.

#2: Screaming "Halo" Kid
"Halo 2" (2004)

Anyone who plays online shooters knows the pain of hearing loud teenagers in chat. But while most of these kids only shout when they're angry, this 'Halo 2' fan yells over just about everything. The prepubescent shrieks go from being annoying to hysterically high-pitched at times. All the violence he commits against his TV is pretty over the top as well, and some of it actually happens after a killing spree. Though someone calls out his excessive noise over voice-chat, his targeted impressions of the other player are arguably even funnier. Despite how obnoxious it would be to play with this kid, watching his hissy fit never gets old.

#1: Brother Freaks Out
"World of Warcraft" (2004)

We think this might be staged, but it's not confirmed. Stephen finds out he doesn't have a 'World of Warcraft' account anymore, and he gets unreasonably upset. He's so furious that he flails against his bed, bouncing around ridiculously like a scene from 'The Exorcist.' Though Stephen's guttural cries are pretty amusing, his rant about running away from home is also extraordinarily childish. If you don't laugh at his initial spasms, you'll have trouble keeping it together as he pokes his butt with a remote. Stephen's rampage is also famous enough to have funny musical remixes, and a zany mash-up with 'Dragon Ball' sound effects. Though the legitimacy of Stephen's freakout is questioned often, you can't deny how comedic and outrageous it is.
