Videogame ‘yeller’ issued a summons for disorderly conduct

Are you a “yeller?” I sure as hell am. Any unexpected death or loss in any videogame has me yelling at my television and game consoles at the top of my lungs. I’m not Angry German Kid bad, and I realize that none of these objects can hear me, but it makes me feel better. One time, my dog bit me because I scared the sh*t out of him after yelling at a game.

I suppose I had better watch the volume of my exclamations. One gamer in Denver received a visit from deputies for his.

The Denver YourHub tells us that deputies responded to a domestic disturbance callat 5 a.m. on May 7. The county sheriff’s office blotter says that a 39-year-old man said he heard yelling and doors being slammed and said it had been going on for months.

In the apartment below him, the wife of our yeller said her husband plays video games all night, much like you and I. The problem here is that he gets upset when he loses and yells obscenities at his gaming gear. Old Yeller was issued a summons for disorderly conduct.

Do you scream at the television when you lose/fail? If so, what game made you the most angry and loud? For me it was Shadow of the Colossus. Damn those tall colossi!
