But no matter how many times you get beaten to death with a giant sex toy on Saints Row or called a 'noob' on Call of Duty: MW3, there is no excuse for lashing out at your loved ones.
That is what makes the immense popularity of this viral video featuring a frog biting its owner during an 'Ant Smasher' game all the more sickening.
Over 8m YouTube users have condoned this horrendous amphibian attack so far, apparently blinded by the frog's admittedly impressive skills.
Just ask yourself whether you'd be as impressed if Grandma chomped on your arm mid-Pictionary.
