The "D" in "D-pad" now stands for "dead" (Bitmob)

Once the king of control, the D-pad is now insignificant today. What might the future hold for our beloved directional pad?

It also stands for "Depressing". I mean, look at's like an old person in a crowd of young, hip kids.

Every tried BlazBlue with the analog stick? Does not work to well, and even in shooters it makes a good inventory control.

It needs to be there. That is all.

I still have no idea what Nintendo was thinking when it made the N64 pad.

Yeah that really was useless. I hated the N64 controller. The C buttons just felt too much. And the three handles ... I wasn't born with three hands so yeah lol.

I remember playing an old N64 at my grandad's house playing Mario Kart. Back then, the controller looked so confusing and convoluted, lol.

I obviously didn't realize fighting games weren't being made anymore, obvious. LOL
