I recall playing Crash Bandicoot and Twisted Metal 1&2....saving didn't exist! had to use a passcode system! GASP! I actually prefer wired controllers (except when i need to keep them stored in a drawer so my cat doesn't CHEW the cords!) I don't like auto-saves when it's forced on me, and thus makes the game artificially difficult (such as Dark Souls 3). Whilst i DO like that we get patches for games, i don't like that these days we technically don't "own" the games we buy; we merely own a license to download them from a site or via a game client. i do like that we've moved away from memory cards (they always had a super small capacity, unless you bought the off-brand ones (i bought one for my ps2....and it got corrupted!) standard controls (ESPECIALLY hot keys) are pretty sweet, but i like being able to reassign button configs to my preferences (although i don't miss the days before Dualshock support!) Graphics don't matter to me TOO much, but they're one of the reasons i could never get invested in the story of FF7. i owned it as a kid (12 yrs old), tried playing it several times.....but the graphics always broke my immersion :(.
I mean... I can live without some of these features. The nice thing about the save feature is that you can go back to previous levels if you missed some missable content or something. I play plenty of old games that aren't even the HD remaster. If you do have access to a remastered version thats otherwise identical to the original(ie. isn't a "reimagining"), then by all means, play it, but that doesn't mean I can't do without it looking all pretty. I still use a wired controller. I mean, a wireless controller's battery is gonna run out eventually, but I'm less likely to be an idiot and get so excited I unplug the damn thing.
re: standard controls..... yeah but then you have the games that swap a couple buttons..... like fallout using triangle to jump.... or if you've played prototype and saints row 4.... i can't remember what they swapped but they both basically have the same mechanics just swapped a couple buttons..... it's like switching between a windows and mac keyboard...
also nintendo swaps the locations of the confirm and cancel buttons.... (though to be fair the A button does the same thing on both xbox and nintendo 3ds.... but the A and B buttons have swapped locations....)
I may be going a bit old school with this one but what about having to press a button to run! I had recently gotten Legend of Mana for my daughter (because why not? I played it at her age) and I totally forgot that there is nothing in the settings to make it to where your character automatically runs. You have to hold down the circle button. Also, joysticks! Got Grandia for myself and I can't use my joysticks!!
I never realized how much I loved wireless controllers until I beat Kessler in infamous and did one of the most elaborate victory dances of my life. There's something magical about doing the running man through your entire house with your controller still in your hand. I don't recommend doing a touch down style celebration with your controller. We had wood floors that were essentially made of solid oak.
Most of these mod cons lead to the non challenge games we have now. Gamers today never feel the emotion of finally winning a battle, or solving a REAL puzzle that you have struggled with! Saves weren't invented so you could stop and make a cup of tea. They were invented because games used to be HARD and you needed to save because you died a lot while overcoming the obstacles!
This is why I am a PC gamer, so I can play challenging indie games that don't hold your hand and can and do kill you regularly!
Wireless Controllers are the best invention ever. I hated these cables everywhere in the room..... and all of them so short that most of the time I had to sit on the floor in front of the TV because the cable was only 2 meters and the couch was not in reach with the controller in the hands.
To be fair, the Wither 3 does have a bit of menu surfing, between creating different potions, equipping new armor, repairing weapons and armor, and getting ready for each big battle takes place in the menu.
X is to the Jump
Square is to do nothing [usually]
Circle is to crouch
Triangle is to reload your weapon
R2 is to fire your gun or attack
L1 is to aim down your sight
Pause is to pause
Select is for sharing stuff
I am probably wrong, I haven't played a First-Person Shooter in a while
I actually liked the old controllers. I never had charge and the wire was long enough that I never pulled the game system. The new controller end up with screwed up sticks, and if I plug them in I'll end up pulling my PS3.
He mentioned "The Jak and Daxter trilogy" but anyone who has ever played the games knows there were more than just the three. There was also Daxter, Jak X, and Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier (which I personally won't hold against him since it wasn't made by Naughty Dog)
