I don't think I've ever played an SNK game, but Tekken and Street Fighter have both had me making up inventive new swearwords at one point or another.
Also, this doesn't really count, but I can only think of one time I've had proper gamer rage and broke something, and that was doing a certain challenge on one of the later Tony Hawk games (I think it might have been American Wasteland).
It was something frustratingly simple-sounding, like "kickflip down these stairs and do a grind, yo" but one little thing about it - it might have been the angle of the board or the timing of the grind - made me fail it in excess of 50 times. I ended up just throwing my controller across the room to get my frustration out and then finishing the challenge on my first try with my newly broken controller.
That poxy, simple little challenge laughed in the face of my gazillion-point combos and hurtled me, kicking, screaming and controller-flailing into manhood. I've never played a Tony Hawk game since. :'(
Also, I remember being so frustrated with games when I was a kid that I'd bite the controller or try to snap it in half because I didn't want to throw it and risk breaking it... looking back, that just sounds weird. Anyone else ever do that?
