I’ve never played with consoles particularly, but I’ve noticed that many people who do have an…interesting…style. When in a tricky situation they’ll eschew pressing buttons on the gamepad in favour of the wave-the-whole-thing-around-in-space technique. Need to turn left faster than is possible with the analogue joystick? No problem: move the entire gamepad as far away as possible, preferably while leaning in that direction. Although I invariably lose when playing anything on consoles, I contend myself with my dignified, albeit ultimately pants, performance 🙂
However I can still maintain a somewhat puerile superiority, given that anybody owning such a device will have a large box in their lounge boldly displaying the phrase “Nintendo Wii“.
- Actually, the new controller is apparently quite different from previous incarnations and can be used for swordfights! I’m ignoring this for the sake of winding people up. [↩]
