wolfqueen001 Time for a change... I think this sums me up pretty well:

Things tend to turn out well when you worry, so that's probably good. - EmP

I still <333 wolves, though.

Title: So why can't they make GOOD PS2 controllers anymore?
Posted: January 11, 2009 (02:59 PM)
Nowadays they make these shitty "compact" controllers that are easier to hold, but also crap out on you with one button or another after only a few months of hard use. I swear, I bought two of them over the summer because our old controllers were done... and already the left analog stick on both is f'd up so that whenever you try to walk up/diagonally up-right, it only walks the character no matter how far you push it up. It makes things like platforming and running away really difficult, especially in games like God of War where you kind of need that because God mode is insane and anyone who says it's easy is equally insane and has way too much time on their hands to get that good at a game (no offense to anyone this applies to. =P)

Maybe I just suck at video games. I dunno. Doesn't matter, though. The controllers are a piece of crap. They're supposed to only cost like $10 (I wonder why...), but the ones I bought were between $10-$20, which is perhaps a bit much.

Why can't they just make durable equipment anymore? That'd be a lot more convenient, I think.

Tangentally-related anecdote: I dropped my new Dualshock 3 on the cement floor in the basement hallway while dashing to the kitchen for a sammich.

Turns out wireless controllers might not be such a hot idea after all. The entire left side is now unresponsive. >_>'
