I am calling on all true gamers to come together on 4th September and refuse to play any games using a gamepad. Instead of buying a tired sequel on that day such as Far Cry 3 try something new and exciting such as Fable : The Journey, a game that shows just how tired games like Far Cry 3 are becoming. True gamers are fed up of pressing a button to open a door, they want a step closer to reality where you FEEL the excitement of opening a door. Inserting a key by pushing forward, rotating your wrists and pushing again. I remember when Nintendo introduced the first gamepad in the 80's and everyone was behaving in the same way they are now towards motion controls.
"I don't have a joystick to hold anymore? but all games need joysticks??" etc
Yet now no gamer would want to go back to joysticks. In 5 years time, I promise you right now that nobody will want to use gamepads again. For this happen the industry needs to hear our voices, I urge you all to refuse using a gamepad on September 4th and tell everyone about it. Buy Fable: The Journey instead of FarCry 3 and let publishers feel the heat. Let the world know that gamers deserve more than a tired technology that has been crawling along slowing game creativity for over 25 years.
