I’m also a believer in experiencing things as originally intended, be it default settings on pinball, or listening to complete albums in original track order. Of course, in that spirit, John should be playing his video games using the default controller layout!
haha. A well picked point. 🙂
Actually, its true that I do generally stick to a default control setup and frown on those that stray because I believe the designer made the controls that way for a reason. But, at the same time I am a person that can use reason to make my own decisions about what is best for me and if I do truly find a better way and don't see any advantage to the default setting I will change it.
This was actually a point I was trying to make on the podcast (probably failed). I can't understand why the default controller setup is the one that they chose when it is clearly inferior. I honestly think that they actually hurt the success of the game by choosing this controller setup.
