Gaming can give you a rush. People have a passion to win and, with that, comes a little aggression. If you thought it all depended on each person, however, you thought wrong. A new study says Xbox players are some of the most toxic around.

The study, conducted by Top10Casinos.com with the Buss Perry Aggression Questionnaire, looked into the gaming habits of 964 people while taking into account games and consoles to come up with the conclusion.

"Those who have lived through Xbox 360 MW2 multiplayer lobbies or have ever played an online game of FIFA know that video games have a great ability to send your aggression levels through the roof," Top10Casinos.com said. "With so much pride at stake, failures to complete levels and win online matches can send you over the edge. But have you ever wondered which games make you the angriest?"

That's not to say, however, that everyone else isn't toxic. Playstation users weren't so far behind in the results. Both Nintendo and PC gamers scored the lowest, with mobile users as the least aggressive. The rating system was based on physical aggression, verbal aggression, anger, and hostility.
