    Just be grateful Sony didn't go with the original prototype for the PS3 controller.
    I'm not, I wish they'd at least tried something new even if ended up a failure. They backtracking on vibration and others have backtracked on design before anyway.

    @andytheadequate yes. A ridiculous statement designed for bait value.
    The most poorly utilised yes. The most overrated, possibly. But worst? Not a chance. Jaguar all the way.

    I thought how the wiimote played sound effects was cool. It was great for 2d platformers like donkey kong and mario imo.

    Nintendo controllers are weird. Being family friendly I think they are been pretty unintuitive, waving them about aside.

    Dual Shock works well enough but I don't like it at all. Any controller that places analogue sticks like that is wrong, even Steam has one in PR pics. Then there is the triggers. I hope Sony change the controller but not holding my breath.

    What can I say! It's a very unpopular opinion.

    Here's one: The Snes controller wasn't that good. Mostly because the shoulder buttons were poorly placed, had hinges at the wrong end and as such, broke with alarming regularity.

    Nes/Master System had the best controllers imo. Did everything they needed to, which I can't really say about any controller since.

    I hated the NES controller. Sure, it worked, but it really didn't fit my hands. It's like trying to use the Wiimote sideways (which in fairness is worse than the NES controller).

    I really dislike shooting people.I find it immersion killing when they go down like flies, I hate being the only guy who is somehow bulletproof and as I've kept growing older I hate the senselessness. I love a good man on alien gun-battle now and again but COD really makes me physically uncomfortable, why am I murdering cuban police officers?
    Zombies are a godsend for me, nicely sidesteps all of this.

    Me too.

    I'll try something more unpopular than that about the Wiimote now:

    The PS3 controller is one of the best ever.

    Wiimote could be the crappiest official but there have been so many awful third party controllers in the last few generations that it can't take the overall crown of crumminess.
    First I thought, you're right there. But think about it, the Wiimote ruined a whole Nintendo console. So by definition it is the most vile and dreadful controller in history.

    The best console is that of Quake btw.

    No wait, I think Skyrim's is actually even better.

    I don't understand why NiGHTS: Into Dreams is so popular. I've just played the XBLA trial and there's barely any game there. Is it because it was one of the few semi-decent games on the Saturn?

    I like Nights but it is overrated. If you don't like score attack games you wont like Nights really. There where plenty of better games on the Saturn.

    I really liked Blood Omen 2.

    Objectively I know it's a turd, but I loved it.

    I'm getting to the end of Dishonored and it's not that good, quite fun to play but gets very repetitive and a bit dull very quickly.
    A good game but not the amazing GOTY many make it out to be.

    NSMBU is shite. I'm not sure why I bought it because I think all previous 2D Mario games have been shite, and it very much continues the trend.

    I thought it was a rather good 10 indie game myself. However certainly not a system seller or a AAA game.

    On which point Pilotwings on the 3DS was a rather good game for a 59p IOS game. Although most IOS games have more content.

    I think the Eldar Scrolls and Fallout games are boring as fudge. Nice worlds, but uninteresting gameplay, dull characters and generally unengaging. I even managed to fall asleep playing Oblivion.

    I agree, other than Skyrim i never liked any of the others despite really wanting to.

    Mostly agree, but I played the previous fallouts so have a bit more attachment to that world. I mostly play them then realise after a while that they're really not interesting me all that much.

    Max Payne 3 outstays its welcome by about 6 hours and the shooting controls on 360 are dogshit.

    You are a dick.

    Mp3 is the greatest ever action game.
    I remember when the second to last level ended I thought that was the last level and when I realised there was one more I yayed.

    Personally i think GTA games are massively overrated. Couldn't get into GTA4 at all. Played once. Sat on the shelf for a few years. Tried again - meh. Just can't get into it. Maybe i'm getting old.
