Peter Molyneux, formerly of Lionhead studios, is renowned for his controversial comments. This time Molyneux has told online gaming publication Beefjack that video game controllers are not only tedious, but they’re boring. Here’s Peter Molyneux rant for your enjoyment.
“I am just sick to death of having my hand clamped to this controller – of having to be forced to use my thumb in a certain way, and having my other hand clamped to the other side of the controller, and having games say ‘No, you will do it this way, and if you don’t do it this way then we will punish you’.”
[Typical console control inputs make him feel] “like some laboratory rat running around a maze, being forced to experience games in that way.”
“Sure enough, controllers are great, they give us exactly what we want, but that is so tedious and boring now.”
