Clicking in sticks, I fucking hate using the sticks as buttons. I'd happily take crappy QTEs over clicking in the sticks for anything ever again.

I'm OK with clicking sticks but clicking and holding sucks, especially when you also have to move the stick.

Clicking in sticks is absolute shit relative to pressing a key for melee in FPS's; other than that if used correctly it's fine.

How are you gonna run if you can't click in the stick? Stab-in-the-face?

I like the part where you twirl the stick, and then smack it right-and-left over and over again.

Clicking in the stick to crouch is how I like it, man

I really hated that in GTAV it just felt unnatural or rather annoying to me to activate their special power by clicking both sticks...

It works well in Dark Souls. I really don't mind it.

I don't like it for sprint, but I'm fine with it in general for stuff like melee or UI elements.

I used to hate it. Sprinting and melee felt so much more natural on buttons. Eventually I got used to it, but clicking and holding while moving the stick will never not suck ass.

Now that you mention it, I didn't like it when I first played CoD4 for running and melee. I guess I just got used to it.

I'd prefer to get rid of waggling the left stick. It has always felt completely unintuitive to do. I'd much rather just mash a button.

IT SUCKS, Using it to run breaks the controller. Now when I just tap the right stick in another game, i'm doing something different. It's a horrible trend everyone is aping because CoD did it, actually Killzone 1 did it first.

I don't think remappable controls has even been the standard for PC games in a long time.

The only good use is when it's a QTE of poking your thumbs into somebody's eyes.

Was that God of War? I can't remember...

I only hate it if I flinch when reacting to someone in a multiplayer shooter and they kill me because instead of me aiming correctly and shooting the dude, I get shot stabbing the air in front of me. Otherwise, I think some of the function of clicking sticks are perfectly useful.

You can remap controls in pretty much every PC game that comes out and that hasn't changed.

I generally don't have a problem clicking in the sticks, though in some rare cases it can be problematic (like when it's mapped to pulling up iron sights). There's about 50 things in games I find more annoying than stick clicking, though.

yeh it's a pain in GTA 5, I never use Franklin's power because I'm too busy using the sticks to steer at very high speed. it's dumb that you have to disrupt your steering in order to improve your steering, same goes for Michael's to a lesser extent, Trevor's is okay cos I'm usually in cover or in a heap anyway, but come on, just d-pad or shoulder button that shit, make it smooth.

however, i'd much sooner get rid of 'Tap-A really really fast', fuck that noise, i'm laid out flat on my couch, relaxed, having a good time, YOU tap-A really really fast motherfucker, you're disrupting my zen. seriously what is the point?

The one time it felt good to me was strangling dudes in the godfather... good times.

Otherwise I'm not bothered either way as long as the action required isn't based on any rigid timing.

Uh, well it depends what it is. If its stuff like crouch or TOGGLE for sprint then yeah its fine. If you gotta click it for like a quicktime event or hold it down while moving the stick to run, then that's awful.

But in general I don't mind clicking the sticks.

Personally i hate rotating the sticks for activities or QTE's FAR more. Or flicking it side to side real fast. Yeah fuck you QTE's way to ruin my controller by forcing me to brutalize the damn sticks you fucks.

Yup. If it's a toggle I can usually get over it. But holding it down for any extended period of time is just uncomfortable.

Why not add two more buttons, like the black and white on the Duke.

It's fine if I don't have to hold the stick in any direction while doing it.

I'm dreading it in Dark Souls II. It lets you jump like that, alternatively. I hate the old jump mechanic too. If only they let us remap the controls.

Fortunately, I haven't had to hold it in any game.

I hate clicking in the sticks when it's some kind of fast reaction thing.

Special hates: Forced stealth in non stealth games, where the fail condition is being kicked back to a checkpoint.

Don't clickers those stickers!

I seem to be with the majority on this one, it doesn't bug me unless I need to hold it in while moving, that shit is deplorable.

I'd actually really miss clickable sticks. I can't be the only one who will sit there clicking the sticks in and out on their DualShock while waiting for a game to load or navigating Netflix/Youtube.

Dark Souls II has an option to switch it back to the old button. At least the Network Test Version had that option, and I can't imagine the game would eliminate it. Not that it fixes your hate for the old mechanic...

It seems a lot of people are saying this. I can't think of a single example. What game is this? Some low budget movie tie-in? I think you guys are talking out your asses...
