Wii U Shortblog: Shut the f*** up about the controller

   0


Recently, a story went up on the front page of Destructoid about Bioshock Infinite coming to the Wii U. The information ended up being false, but that didn't stop all the ignorant, Nintendo-did-something-to-personally-hurt-me commenters from coming out of the woodwork. Once again, like clockwork, the SAME PEOPLE came out to complain about the Wii U's GamePad (or tablet) controller. "Waah, touchscreen! Waah, 'last-gen'! Waah, third-party games shouldn't be on Nintendo systems!"

SHUT THE FUCK UP, FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING GOOD IN THE WORLD.

This controller thing is getting ridiculous. There are five -- FIVE -- control schemes that the Wii U will support out of the box: Wii U GamePad (which comes with EVERY SYSTEM), Wii U GamePad without touchscreen use, Wii U Pro Controller, Wii Classic Controller, and Wii Remote+Nunchuk. The Wii U supports more control schemes than ANY OTHER GAMING PLATFORM that we've ever had, and Nintendo has obviously gone to great lengths just to make third-party games more playable on their newest console. Yet people still love to ignore the fact that anything BUT the touchscreen exists, just to purposely make sure Nintendo looks bad.

The Wii U has brought out the most ignorant, short-sighted, hateful people I've ever seen in the gaming community, and that's saying a whole hell of a lot. If a game ends up coming out for the Wii U (or ANY platform, for that matter), and you don't like the controls, blame the developer, not Nintendo. Nintendo has set everything up to offer more control freedom than any system before it, and yet people still love to say Nintendo systems are just gimmicks. The Pro Controller looks an awful lot like a 360/PS3 controller to me, and it seemingly functions just like one, as well. The Wii Remote+Nunchuk and original Classic Controller have been available for years already, and they're dirt cheap. The control schemes are there, but people who want to make Nintendo look bad (because they think any of these gaming companies actually give a shit about them on the individual level) love to just foolishly assume that the GamePad will be the ONLY controller available on the Wii U. If you don't like the GamePad for third-party games, chances are you won't have to use it. Yet everyone keeps forcing the idea down peoples' throats, even more than Nintendo ever would.

And as for people actually complaining about the prospect of these games coming to the Wii U at all, when in the hell did we all decide that a system shouldn't get great games just because it happens at a later date? I guess the PS3 NEVER should have gotten the Mass Effect series. I guess the PC NEVER should have gotten Alan Wake.

Knock it the hell off.

About pedrovay2003one of us since 2:15 PM on 11.14.2006

Name: Peter
Home State: New York
Currently Residing In: Utah
Birthday: October 13th, 1985 (I'll always secretly consider the NES to have been a five-day late birthday present to me from Nintendo.)
Degree: Communication (with a writing emphasis)

I'm a Mass Communication/Journalism graduate from the University of Utah, which I'm starting to question, since it was a tough field to get into even before the economy went down the toilet. I love writing; Not only do I consider it my passion, but I also believe it's an invaluable skill for this socially-connected age in which we live. Writing about video games brings me more joy than I can even describe in words, which is saying a lot, considering.

As far as video games go, I've been a gamer since I was two years old. I try to play whatever interests me, despite what other people think of those games. I suppose I consider myself to be "obsessed" with gaming, but not in the sense that all I want to do is beat games. I'm fascinated with the industry as a whole, and in some way, shape or form, I'd love to be a part of it professionally someday.
