Let me explain.
second, this term "rip off" should really be used more sparingly with video games. I mean, copying a successful model is not a bad thing, on the contrary, it is something that should be encouraged because it brings evolution to gender, the definitive proof that the "original concept" is something good and with room to evolve! I have no problem with the "possibility" of mario copying ideas introduced by Astro Bot, it would be like having problems with all the FPS that evolved the idea of â€‹â€‹"OG the wolfenstein" or all the games that use the bases created by "OG Diablo ". my problem, in the form of a prediction, is in a different place.
The real "problem" of my prediction is the possibility of some Nintendo fans declaring that Nintendo is the creator of this concept. I am not aiming for all nintendo fans, I only point to those who give credit to Nintendo when it is not due, for example, Nintendo fans who argue that nintendo has introduced modern "Analog Sticks" and completely ignore Dual shock (sometimes even calling DS a "rip off") and disregard the fact that the design of the N64 Stick has nothing to do with modern controls!
Note: I swear, I will not discuss here questions about the merit "N64 vs DS, what is the origin of modern analogs sticks ...". I already had exhaustive discussions about the matter, it is an argument that has no end or use.
Don't forget that for the DS discussion we need to ignore the fact that there was already analog stick in plenty of gaming devices before N64, and that Sony wouldn't be that fast to not only copy Nintendo but to change the concept, test, approve and launch on their console in that timeframe.
Yes the modern console layout is a lot closer to N64 right?Last edited by DonFerrari - on 24 November 2020
