In Defense of Really Elegant Button-Mashing

Posted 8 years ago by Adam Gautsch

This leads us to the big critique of controller schemes: They're too artificial. Game designers take organic, fluid, physical real-life movements and turn them into random, opaque button combinations. This drives newbies away because they can't penetrate the button-combo thicket.


It's basically why I quit playing games like Mortal Kombat. I didn't have the time and desire to learn these overly complex button combos.

Exactly. I have much better things to do, like learning that Vox doesn't support trackbacks. ;-)
