Hello there fellow CLICers, JordyCee at your service. I am the Co-Editor on Caerphilly's CLIC site Youth4u, which is hopefully going live on May 14th so mark your calendars, diaries, iPhones and Blackberries!

I wanted to get your thoughts on something that I have started to encounter in the world of online gaming via PS3 and Xbox. I am a gamer and play as regularly as possible but recently I've really noticed that more and more gamers are getting stupidly angry if I accidentally (on purpose) sniper them from a bush (Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3) or happen to put three goals past them with Cardiff City as they play as Man City (not United, as they suck) or even pin them on WWE '12. It makes me laugh but recently I did have a slight outburst while playing FIFA 12 but then realised how dumb I must have sounded.

It's such a shame that we get these so-called "ragers" in games. While it is funny sometimes, on other occasions it can be quite scary, especially if you're a younger gamer. This got me thinking about other people's experiences regarding game rage. Are you a rager? It would be interesting to find out.

Although I've talked about it, I'd like to let you know how I deal with ragers and it's just as simple as this... laugh about it and obviously don't hang around in the chat if they are going proper off on one. How do you deal with such issues?

Righty-oh think that's all I wanted to say, so let me know guys and girls in comments section below!

I don't go in for online gaming but I've called Princess Peach every name under the sun when playing Super Mario Kart - stop dropping those flipping mushrooms!

I'm the same as @CeefaxOfLife, it would seem. I'm no online gamer, but the words that have escaped my mouth when I fail a mission on GTA or Assassin's Creed is astounding. Even remember a time that I was playing Lara Croft 2004 and I screamed at the tv in frustration because I couldn't get a wicket for over 100 overs. And people reading this comment will no discover that I play cricket games. I expect a loss of three respect points in the coming days...

Anyway, hope that the launch of Youth4U will be Smooth4U (I really need to get out more...).

@CrazyDistortion I too was disappointed with the lack of cricket action in the Tomb Raider series.

@CeefaxOfLife Oh cheese and crackers, I meant Brian Lara. Such a fail deserves a sad face from life.

Never played a Lara Croft game. If Clic would like to change this, I'm more than happy to review the games. =].

Got something to say?
