Cards Against Humanity is mostly about hilarious combinations and goofing around, but I still want to win.
Also, one persons poor sport is just getting into it to others. When my buddies and I play video games, we talk trash, rub each others faces into every defeat, and never under any circumstance admit the other guy played better. If you lose at chess, it was luck or the other guy cheated! That's the fun of it, that's why we play. Its more about the shit talking and messing with each other than the game. Take that away and the fun is gone.
I feel you, and depending on the friends I'm with my game nights can be a lot like that too but there's a big difference between good natured trash-talk and relentless whining.
