If there are
any controllers out there that have taken more of a beating, I'd be pretty
damned surprised. Nintendo made these little rectangular controllers
knowing that they would be physically abused for the duration of their
existence. No matter how calm and collected you may be, EVERYONE has
thrown a NES controller in a fit of gaming rage at one point or another.
Fighting the boss of a game with one life left and no continues and then
dying just before you kill him... what else are you gonna take your
aggression out on? And I'm no exception, believe me. I remember getting
extremely frustrated with a game of Karnov and throwing the controller up
against the wall. It left a DENT in the wall! And was the
controller ruined? Nope, not a scratch. It worked like new. What more can
you ask for from a basic controller?
what the fuck were they thinking when they decided to create these:
Controllers - The Next (sucky) Generation.
once a glorious, pain-welcoming, indestructible video game controller has now been
reduced to a cheap piece of plastic that resembles a dog bone. Dog bone
controllers. A craptastic controller that tempts your pet to chew
and slobber all over it. Ingenious.
