After spending what literally felt like hours connecting two Pentium 75 PC's together so we could death match Duke Nukem I would often throw things at my mate sat across the dining room table when he inevitably beat me. I ended up with a small system, cushions for sneaky laser trip bomb attacks and one of my shoes for anything shrink ray related. He took it all, smug in the knowledge that he was better than me, and would often shout "come get some" in a fake deep voice.

I witnessed a guy turn the power off for a row of Street Fighter ][ machines, after being thrashed in a 2-player bout, causing 7 other machines that were being played to also lose power.

Good old split screen checking on your opponent. Used that to devastating effect on many an FPS!

When playing the old FIFAs, wait until the other player went to get a drink then sub their best players, play the rest out of position and change the overage zones to leave massive gaps on the field

One of my friends was a terrible loser and couldn't accept that bumping other cars out of the track was a valid strategy on Micromachines. Once, after doing that too much on his house, playing on his megadrive, he expelled me from the place threatening me with his japanese katana. Seriously.

In 2-player PC games, I would sometimes hold down "too many keys", blocking my opponent's controls.

When playing side pocket on the megadrive with my cousin, he would always press the A button after fouling a shot. This always set the ball down on the spot at the end of the table so you could not line up your next shot.
Did my nut in as I used the think the game had a bug and not him cheating.
