First of all, I've never played Metroid Other M. But I've seen a lot of previews, reviews and forums about the game. I'm not going to get into other aspects of the game, since I haven't played it. Just the controls. From what I've heard, the major complaints about the controls are
1. No analog control, you have to move with a d-pad
2. You can't move in first person viewing mode
3. The dodge button and the attack button are the same so if you just spam the attack button, the dodging literally just happens
I can think of a number of control options on the 3DS that would deal with all these problems. DO you think the game would have been better as a 3DS game? And more importantly, do you think the Metroid game that will inevitably be released on 3DS should be in the same gameplay style as Metroid Other M? We're talking about gameplay style now, not whether or not it is as story focused as Other M was.
