50% of the people who respond to these polls are gigantic liars. :)

In my 30 years or so of gaming, I've only met a very few really sore losers. Sure a few get upset at a string of bad die rolls (looking at you, Tom) but most players are gracious gentlemen and ladies.

Years of practice have made me a very gracious loser

I try to be. I don't always succeed.

I have only gamed with a few hyper-competitive, gotta-win types. They suck the joy out of gaming, and I won't play a game that they are participating in.

+1 advocate, if I'm being honest with myself.

I'm impressed to see TMP has one (on current voting) boldly honest person!

There needs to be a category between "don't whine' and "sulk like a child'. :)

Actually I play solo except for a small handful of convention games where I think I never was on a winning side. It's not life or death so that's how it goes. I think have a reasonable grounding in a battle mechanics so doubt it's that.

The best games I have been in are close fought games that turned on one event and I no longer remember who won or lost.

I don't think we can really say if we are gracious loser. Most of us are sure we are not. I think you have to ask the people you game with if we are gracious losers.
