Madden NFL 13 producer Yuri Bialoskursky was asked to describe the comfort level of the Wii U GamePad. Bialoskursky claims that, compared to traditional video game controllers, the Wii U GamePad is huge but gamers will get used to it, after playing with it for a while. According to Bialoskursky, the Wii U GamePad is not awkward to hold, doesn’t detract from gameplay, and “is actually very comfortable.”
How does the controller feel to you? The thing is so huge, it seems like it’s going to take a lot of getting used to for “Madden” fans that have been playing the game on other systems.
“There’s definitely going to be a period of adjustment there. That’s all out of our control, but when we’ve been playing it all throughout development, it’s not uncomfortable at all. The way that it’s laid out, the final controller, is actually very comfortable, and the way that it’s all laid out with our features, is all done in a way that isn’t intrusive to the game. It’s all done in the flow and the context of how the plays are supposed to game and the game really flows. It works really well.”
