Video Games - for many of us, they are a form of stress relief, they help us to decompress. But what happens when our favorite form of stress relief is itself quite stressful?

We all have "that game" or maybe even "those games": the one(s) that made us so angry, so frustrated, so maddeningly enraged that we were tempted to illogically throw our very game controllers against a wall...or perhaps some of us have even committed this act (aka "pulling a McEnroe") much to our shame and economic woe.

Join Aaron Becker for a discussion of the many ways video games - even really GOOD ones - can drive us mad and potentially abusive relationship gamers have with their games.

 In addition, volunteers from the audience will be asked to test their might as they are pitted against some of gaming's most iconic controller-throwing moments and some of Aaron's personal favorite "gems of masochist gaming" and playing for fabulous prizes!*

*Fabulous prizes may in fact be candy.
