This is a question My Biggest Disappointment

Often the things we look forward to the most turn out to be a huge let down. As Freddy Woo puts it, "High heels in bed? No fun at all. Porn has a lot to answer for."

Well, Freddy, you are supposed to get someone else to wear them.

What's disappointed you lot?

Every pc, every games console, every phone, every whatever the fuck it is if it plays games then it's probably broken for me.
The first time I remember my pc dying on me was playing Red Alert. It woulc crash half way through playing a game and then I'd have to turn it off by the big "on/off" button rather than shutting down. Of course this just meant it would crash more and more.
Ever since my pc's have been dying while playing games, as the games advance so does my pc but it still fails to keep up and it just always crashes. This computer I'm on right now only managed to play Counter-Strike 1.6, and it still crashes occasionally.
Playstation 2, a fuse burns out and a specialist component breaks which means I have to get a whole new PS2. And it still doesn't play GTA Vice City because of a "disc read error".
My xbox controllers broke because the wiring fucked up where the lead joins the controller. The only way I could use the controller was to gaffa-tape up the wire into a position where it would work; and even then it didn't always.
My xbox 360 worked. For a while. None of that 3-red-lights-of-death or whatever. But it was to do with the overheating. Basically I had played it for not long enough at a time for it to die from overheating, but it was causing the connections to expand and then cool down into a different position, which eventually lead to them being deformed and the colours going completely whack. And I can now only play it when it's overheated and even then the colours are still wrong.
Even my phone breaks in unexpected ways. If there is a duplicate contact on my contact list if I go to delete it my phone restarts itself.
Bah. Technology - it's great untill it breaks.

Sounds like youve had fun.
At least you managed to post on b3ta without your internet or pc dieing.

for the wires on your xbox controller
you're pulling it out when you wrap the lead around it when putting it away. Took me months to realise where the problem is. So instead of wrapping it around the controller, wrap it around a couple of fingers and don't pull on it. Used to happen to me all the time
