Baby Boomers Complain About Video Game Controllers

Posted by | December 20, 2011

Because no self-respecting member of my generation would use the term, “Man Cave.” To us, that sounds like something horrible you’d find on 4Chan. In any case, what we have here is a top five list of the worst video game controllers. It goes old school, which I appreciate, but it’s so simple and vapid you can tell it’s little more than Your Parents trying to sound cool. Yet another mainstream-media-trying-to-understand-video-games article. CBS Local has the story.

    Hating on the Atari controller for only having one button is like hating on the Shelby Mustang because it doesn’t have great air conditioning. Sort of misses the time and place.

    OH great whine about the controllers instead of the crappy Small text syndrome a lot of games have these days?

    Why is text getting so small?

    If it really is the proliferation of gigantic HDTVs then maybe we need to impress upon developers that they should rethink their UIs and have two versions: one for the people who have HDTV and one for everyone else.

    If you’re going to use text in your game, make it readable — otherwise I’m not putting up with it.
