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.

Assuming this is a joke.

I'll move on from a game pad once people figure out how to make motion controls a fun and responsive system.

The second annual Molyjam will have the stipulation that all games must be controlled without a gamepad.

Now I have a strange urge to play Far Cry 3, despite having no interest in it before reading this thread.

I shall burn my gamepad and inhale deeply of the fumes. Then I shall be able to see the world as Peter Molyneux does.

I was expecting this to be a keyboard+mouse elitism thread. I don't know if I should feel relieved or disappointed.

Exactly what I was expecting, I don't think a Molydeux troll is quite as bad though.

And I'm not sure if is trolling or not cause Fable: The Journey is technically a sequel even though it doesn't play anything like the other fable games.

I don't think we know if this is the real fake Molyneux yet. I have a feeling not though, because the real fake one usually has better ideas :P

@BlackLagoon:No because Killzone wasn't made by a designer who loved motion controls. They just threw it in there randomly as a gimmick.
