State Of The Union Of Gaming: No More F@#$ing Plastic Toys!
Rock Band. Guitar Hero. Rock Revolution. All of them are great “music” games, that require more then just a normal controller to play the correct way. Ok maybe not so much that third one, but the time has come when we have ENOUGH fake plastic toys. Or has it? Kotaku has posted images of the new guitars for The Beatles: Rock Band. But I’m so tired of these stupid plastic toys. We have enough. Now lets look at some other, less popular peripherals.
Steel Battalion. The $200 controller that worked with ONE game. Good Job, Capcom. Way to think ahead. Did anyone actually BUY one of these? Please, comment here if you did. You will win my “Idiot of the century award.”
There….there are just no words for this. Aren’t we all happy that Nintendo stopped making things like this for their systems? Surely the wii doesn’t have an excess of useless peripherals no human being in their right mind would buy or use, right?
The GameCube Chainsaw Controller. Apparently made to commemorate the release of Resident Evil 4. I sort of want to play like, Super Monkey Ball with this. I’ll admit, I never even heard of this until I did some research (blournalism, at its finest folks) for this article. I think they would have been better off just giving out a little plastic chainsaw with the game, then making a fully functioning controller.
I believe three examples is enough. So I’ll get to my point. Why do developers feel the need to make these things for their game? It’s silly. I sincerely hope that sometime in the near future, game companies will decide that, we, as gamers, are more intelligent, and don’t need a choice of 15 fucking plastic guitars to play our favorite music games. Is anyone actually going to be stupid enough to spend money to get a “Beatles” Guitar? Lord know the price on those bad boys is gonna be jacked up higher then an Asian hooker during mardi gras.
So good people of Negative Gamer, do you agree with me? Are we as gamers done with the need for a new controller EVERY time a new Guitar Hero / Rock Band comes out?
