MK Armageddon tore my thumbs to blood

I was introduced to MK by my cousin's husband when I was eleven years old. I played Tekken and Street Fighter in the arcade prior to this, but it was MK that really burns in my memory. The thing is, not only I was new to Mortal Kombat, but I was also new to console gaming. I have never touched a console controller before, and the concept of sticks was something new to me. So by the end of me making acquaintance with MK Armageddon on his PS2, my thumbs were hurting of blisters, haha

The game was fire tho, I remember almost losing my jaw to the floor after I looked at the character roster. One more thing that really stuck with me was the stage fatality. I remember CPU throwing my character down the pit, for his limbs to fall off and be taken by the rats. Vivid

@Popdpivalka, did you just explain motivation to a person with Vergil as a profile pic?

@DeadBeat, I don't have any point here whatsoever, just shared a story of my ass being kicked twice, because why not? Also, be salty. If you are not salty after losing, it means that winning did not matter for you enough. Meaning that you were not enough motivated. Without motivation, you can't achieve anything

Man, that passion... Being a little kid back in the days, I broke cousin's controller in the heated quit rage. Mofo flexed on me way too hard, more than he should on a 9-year old kid. Later that dad flexed his belt on my ass for breaking the controller

@Biggus_Floppus, bold of you to assume I'm ever getting one. It's for the best probably

@Sussus_Amogus, it is actually possible, if you just pull and push it like a maniac. I'm scared to imagine this man ever laying  hand on a tit for the first time

@Sussus_Amogus, my PS4 pads were also shredded like that (and some DMC). Those Dualshocks 2 were made of a different plastic, back in the days, I guess. Or it was just my first time handling the controller, and was  just holding it like a dumbass, so I just managed to tear everything to crust

You really got blisters from sticks on the pad? I just can't comprehend it. My Xbox One sticks were torn to the plastic after days of ranked play once, but my hands were ok
