It sounds stupid. But many people have gotten very frustrated with games,myself included,wheter it be online or just a hard difficulty in single player. But I have heard some people through mic's get really angry with their game or how they are playing. Surely these types of behaviour cannot be good for a person.

No, thye aren't. Which is why if you are getting upset at agme. Its bets to put it down and do something else (non gaming related) for awhile. Or, if you're so mad that you need to do something, put in a different game and put it on easy and slaughter Orcs or other enemies until your rage is gone. Then go and do something else (non gaming related)

Oh definitely, when you're about to taste the sweetness of victory only to have it taken away by a bunch of random events it gets REALLY annoying.
I'm looking at you Blur.
Ahhhhhh, grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory, I remember when I used to play this PC strategy game, I built an army and terrain for three hours, only to be defeated ridiculously. I cried.

It's not just "blood pressure."
Of course playing games on the hardest difficulties is going to take a toll on your body. The increased adrenaline, anxiety, and rage (if you SUCK and fail and get pissed) are all going to cause your heart to go into overdrive. It STRESSES your body from a physiological stem.
That's the price you pay for getting the "rush" out of video games. To me, it's not worth it, so I NEVER allow myself to play games on such settings. I care more about a game's story than the actual "challenge" of the gameplay.
