What\'s the difference between this trope and That Satisfying Crunch? They both seem to be \"smashing inanimate objects to make oneself feel better\".

I was thinking of adding the following to the Video Games section:

  • Pretty much every single example in Die, Chair! Die! can also count towards this trope, especially the Nintendo Hard ones. So as long as the player's keyboard/controller is spared from destruction, and they have at least one usable weapon, then every breakable object in the level is at risk.

What I'm wondering is that if it counts as an example, as according to the edit tips, "All of them" isn't an example. Thing is, I'm not just mentioning every video game ever, I'm specifically referring to the ones mentioned in the DCD trope, so it should still count as an example even if it doesn't mention a single game.

Fellow Tropers: I think the spirit of this trope is ill-conveyed in the description.

The trope is about making one's self feel better or more relaxed by taking your frustrations out on something else. While this does include taking those frustrations out on other people, it is more directed towards inanimate objects.

The description should be altered to better convey that.

How well does it match the trope?
