FFDiscussion
It's been just over 3 years since FFD opened, and it's been a close knit community, one which we've all been able to share our problems together, talk freely and discuss any kind of topic that we wanted, from Final Fantasy to problems with school.

Unfortunately, the decision was made to archive the board while it still had some minimal activity, rather than let spammers come and take over, which I think we will all agree on. Although there was the fair share of drama, people leaving and not much activity, the fact that we managed to keep it going until now is a statement to say that we weren't going to let it go down without trying our best to keep it open.

So after 3 years, 50000 posts and over 1000 topics later, with one of the best and closest communities on the web, FFDiscussion has closed on the 1st December 2010

PostSubject: Worst Controller Design?   Mon Sep 01, 2008 11:32 pm

Going through google images I found some funny spin-offs of various sony & nintendo controllers. It came to me when I saw a pic of the dreamcast controller next to an Xbox controller.

So, what controller design do you think is the worst ever?

I think the worst would be the dreamcast controller, it looks bulkier than the Xbox controller O.o

Nice thread, I have to think about this.

I think one of the worst is going to have to be the original xbox controllers. I mean, they did pattern it off the dreamcast and that was a bad idea. Making a mistake is not as bad as repeating one.

Everyone complained that the Xbox controllers were too big, but at the age of 9 i thought they were an alright size...

I hated the N64 controllers. Yes i'll get flamed, but they were so damned annoying.

Anyone remember the Sega Mega Drive having the buttons A,B and C on it? xD

the z button was probly the best part of the controller, it was bloody good for golden eye and fps games (hence why the Wiimote B button is similar, or the ps3 L2 & R2).

I hate the PS controller! XD

The analogue sticks don't feel right... they slide about too easily.

My friend's matcatz ps2 controller broke while I was using it. The metal supporting the right analog stick (the metal pole that joins the rubber to the chipboard) decided to snap.

sounds like me Very Happy

While playing Mario sunshine, I couldn't get past Bowser, who throws bullet bills at the platform ur on & u need to jump up the falling rocks (which I was having trouble doing), so I took the controller by the chord & slammed it into the ground. The right shoulder button shot out of it's socket Razz
