What? They actually spent time designing that useless piece of plastic? You know how I play Mario Kart? With the classic controller. As one should

Rather creative use of my nationality, Iīll give you that. Still, "Normal" Controllers arenīt retro, they are the tried and true way of playing Videogames. Apart from railshooters and the odd game that uses a pointer, thereīs no reason to replace them with Kinect or Move or Wii-waggling yet. Why? Because itīs not an improvement. Controller-design seems to have peaked with the 360-controller though that thing is still far from perfect, itīs about the best controller we have right now in terms of usability and haptics.

Just so that weīre clear, I do own a Wii and I play with the Wiimote if the game wonīt let me play it with the CC, BUT in most cases the Wiimote is a gimmick and not the optimal way to control most games, apart from some that are specifically tailored towards the Wiimote. Most games arenīt. Even Mario Galaxy (which is an awesome game btw) could be played more effectively with the CC and Nintendo knew that. Which is why they implemented the star-shooting feature.

The classic controller isn't really retro, though, it's basically the Xbox/PlayStation layout.

Which every controller should adhere to by law, because it works perfectly well 100% of the time.

Except on FPSs, at which point you go to keyboard + mouse. When are devs just doing to add K&B support for their console titles? PCs added controller support without too much trouble.

I thought the PS3 did something like that already?

Only for like 5 games, I mean, but it would be cool if they made it universal.

the best combo i've found thus far is g13+mouse. the only game in my entire library that supports the analog features of the g13 is star trek online, however. for some reason, the source engine will let you map an analog controller to digital buttons but will still treat it as digital input, which is the queerest shit.

not really; i find having the analog sticks at the bottom of the controller annoying because i always accidentally hit them. for games that don't use the digital pad, you're then holding the controller at a stupid angle to use the sticks.

360 probably has the best traditional console controller. my point to whats-his-fuck though is that in gaming's past, the controller would be developed in tandem with a game. now, software is designed long after the controller comes out and has to awkwardly conform to it. part of what i liked about the wii's promise was a return to the "retro" ideology of an industry that sells experiences instead of software (what happened in actuality is that faggots couldn't deal and were so nestled in their gamepad niche that they just mapped gamepad controls and tacked on waggle, probably because nintendo made them make a concession).

that's why I said basically

I don't think console similarity is in any way a bad thing; that way I care less about which console I get and more about the actual games for a change

Unfortunately there haven't been any good video games since goddamn 2007 for some reason

Thatīs the only question in my mind when it comes to videogames. I didnīt buy a PS3 because I wanted a PS3, I bought it because I wanted to play InFamous

This probably has more to do with your age than anything else. You're not a child anymore so games just don't ignite your imagination like they used to. At least that's how it is for me.

Yeah, that's what I keep thinking, but the brownangray cavalcade of grimdark space and/or regular marines probably isn't helping.

What is the best looking video game console? In my opinion it's the Gamecube. I like how it's compact and yet unlike the wii feels totally solid. Also violet was a bold color choice, consoles are usually either white or black.

I like the way the front of the N64 is shaped. It's like some kind of pagan shrine.
