That's what E said

Those Nintendo Games Are So Hard

Rate this Entry
I've never had any "gaming buddies," not that it really mattered, but here's why I don't talk to my friends about games: (taken from Facebook).

This pretty much summed it up today on why we don't like the new nintendo games. "Because it's like press the up arrow, plus m, x, z, r, left arrow twice, and forward, okay that's how you walk!!!" LOL! My thoughts exactly!
dude i dont understand any of those video games they are all like that i feel like the buttons need to be labled "walk" "run" "punch" sooo much eaisier lol
that is a brilliant idea, let's do it!
haha there s gonna be some outrageous ones like "turn right" and "kick up... in the air" hahaha its gonna be bomb!
They went on to say they would make millions with this idea.

    I had some relatives over to my place recently and I shown them my Mame/Rom machine that I have hooked up to my TV. I have two PS adapters for controller use. My cousin, who says she still has and plays her NES from time to time, found it confusing to use a Dual Shock to play NES games.

    Honestly, most people are totally baffled by any controller which has more than one button, even if only one button of several is ever used.

    It's probably just their vernacular in making those statements regarding "new nintendo games", because otherwise they seem to have either not heard of the Wii or are playing it totally wrong.

    If I were you I'd suggest that their ideas are good and that a controller should have all those kinds of buttons and more, and then suggest that instead of having full word labels - to keep things simple - they are represented by letters instead. When they agree, point out that such a controller exists, and that they're typing on it.

    Your FB friends sound like assholes. Maybe it's time for a friend list trimming?

    The people on TNL are the only friends you really need.

    I have gamer friends and non-gamer friends, and never the twain shall meet. It's not worth the aggravation.

    I bet they all shift their body every time Mario jumps over a pit. Maybe if you'd lean harder he'd make it next time =[

    Silly commoners.

    How hard is it to use a dual shock or even a Xbox pad? It just sounds like they're looking for things to get confused about.

    You should've titled this, "Those Intendo Tapes are hard!"

    I think letting them live without learning new nitendos is a good course of action. It's such a waste.

    The comments she quoted made it seem like it's something they want to know about, though.

    I've heard girls make these same complaints about "too many buttons" even when playing games that only use 2. I do feel like they're making up an excuse not to try more so than it is trying and having trouble.

    These people I know fall into the category of those who played a few games "back in the day" and were really proud of it, but rather than admitting they don't know shit about games and never did, they just like to blame everything new as the reason they don't play anymore.

    I have noticed a trend in video games: when a guy gets stuck on a game, he hunkers down and spends all his time getting better at it so he can get past the damn thing. When a girl gets stuck, she says that the game is stupid and walks away?

    WHO IS BETTER YOU DECIDE

    After losing a few rounds of SF last night that's pretty much what I did. SHAME ON ME.

    My wife is averse to 3d games. She claims she tried to play Mario 64 and couldn't do it because she'd get lost. She'll at least give 2d games the old college try.

    I'd rather a woman cook me dinner than try to beat a video game. Call me old school.
