The only Ninty related breaks I've had weren't rage-related: My Wii U disc drive popped it's clogs for no reason a month ago (and was duly repaired), and I burnt though battery covers for my GBA by snapping the little plastic tab.

In terms of dishing out physical damage to a game, when we were kids, me and a friend rented Gex 64. We were, unsurprisingly, disgusted: my friend so much that he threw the cart out of the window of his attic room to smack onto the concrete road.

Like every good horror movie though, evil lingered. The cart had some cracks but was firmly held together by all the "void if removed" stickers the rental store had plastered over it, and still "worked". Insofar as Gex ever worked.

As long as nobody buys me some expensive fine china I'll be good.

My soapy blue DS Lite has had a dicky R button for years. I don't know whether it's a design flaw (it's been well looked after) or down to the fact that I played a lot of Mario Kart DS on it back in the day. I know my DSi's touchscreen was never the same after I played Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol.

A couple of years ago I accidentally hoovered up the Wii Sensor Bar cable, snapping it in half. Yesterday - I - did it - again?

My various incarnations of DS always seemed to get dropped and smashed at the hinges. I dropped my DS at a restaurant and sent it to Nintendo. Ended up paying about 40 quid. Then I swapped that DS for a lite and that slowly cracked open but they fixed that for free because I didn't do anything. Then my DSi had a shoulder button that just up and died on me. I've been lucky so far with my 3DS and my XL.
