More broadly and figuratively speaking, daily life can be considered a kind of "game" people play, and its various situations a variety of mini-games. Some people, when they perceive a given situation as monstrously unfair, will do this in place of simply [[KnowWhenToFoldEm cutting their losses and refusing to play anymore]] or [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere fleeing in abject terror when they're losing]]; publicly announcing the decision to quit while denouncing the "game" itself is often considered less shameful and more socially respectable than mere forfeiture or flight.

Measures to alleviate this vary. Some games will register a rage-quit as an automatic loss to the player who quit (possibly with an automatic win for everyone else), or even keep a separate tally for the number of "disconnects". Unfortunately, it is impossible for the network to distinguish a ragequit from ''actual'' technical problems (a power outage, for example), and there are usually still ways for players to exploit the ranking system to avoid taking the loss. Other systems use a punishment system where the player leaving a game will be unable to find/join another game for a certain amount of time in order to prevent them from pulling a rage quit multiple times in a row, although this can greatly annoy players who quit a game for a good reason.

* LetsPlay/JesseCox goes into a rant-filled Rage Quit while playing ''Pro Gamer Simulator'' after a one-two punch of having his character lose a match followed by having his character tempbanned. Jesse is so frustrated that he leaves the computer and goes screaming "I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING!" so loud that it's picked up in Dodger's podcast nearby. For her part, she just finds it funny and talks it over with him as he tries to cool down.
