Yep thats true. Little crybaby didnt think there was someone to counter his foolproof cheapness, and started venting his anger on the cabinets. Kodak moment.
Oh and this one just a weekend ago, playing soul calibur 2, i decided to try out conquest mode, and there was some guy watching closely on the background, i get beaten by the captain of the team and he starts screaming "YEAAAHHH MY AI BEAT YOU YOUU SUCKK YIIAAA YEAAAAHHH" runs around a little bit. So my friend and i decide to continue several times against his team and beat his invincible ai several times.
Who was his character? button masher kilik no less :) I told him to have a round against me using any other character, i pay for his credit, but he made excuses not to play.
quote I think Juan once said that he fought somebody who got so angry he walked around and started kicking all the cabs... Juan, can you confirm this, or was this somebody else?

I play for fun.
I admit I used to be one of those people who played to win, and one time that almost got me into a fight (because, naturally, being such an average player, I can't compete against people who go to the arcade every week). After that I realized how stupid it was, and how I probably could've gotten beaten up in the parking lot (no joke, this was a life-flashing-before-your-eyes event).
After that I started seeing things that were right in front of me. I realized I was effectively playing against the same people, all the time, using nearly the same characters every time, doing nearly the same things every time (usually KOF, because nobody else had the balls to play, say, SS 64 2. Although I do get a kick out of being the best Kasumi user at the arcade-- nay, the only one who uses her-- it doesn't mean a whole lot to some people). I really got sick of that, and I stopped playing altogether. The only time I even think to play one nowadays is against friends or family at home.
EDIT: When I say 'play to win,' I really do mean your sole purpose for playing is to beat the other guy into the ground. I don't think that's very healthy.
I found Kagami's sword in a junk yard.

OK, I voted "for fun" but the real reason (that involves "for fun" obviously) is:
-Because is the best kind of game to play versus, and I like to play with my friends. I mean, How boring can be a fighting game if you play alone all day? Fighting games are fun because not also they're designed for versus mode, but also every match takes less than 5 minutes (usually), and that's a plus when 6 of your friends gathers at your house with CvS2 hunger in their eyes. We fight for fun, but of course we do whatever is necessary to win, only that usually with random select ^_^
We bitch and insult, of course, but in a friendly way: "Tendrás coña!!!!!!!", "Perro!!, Que eres un perro!!!", or "Pero qué suerte tienes, no te lo crees ni tú!!!" etc...
(sorry for not translating, but the phrases looses their essence, and... ooops! I'm late for classes!!!!)
