Agreed doubly. Hilarious that Nintendo fans really have no clue about the history of gaming, so believe Nintendo originated it all.
It's a fact that Nintendo designed or used first many of the input features common nowdays in controllers.. it's absolutely history of videogames.
Nintendo implemented for first: D-PAD (nes, gamewatch), 4-buttons layout (snes), shoulder buttons (snes), analog stick (n64), rumble (n64), 4-players controllers (n64, gamecube), motion sensors (wii), gamepad with touchscreen display (wii U), detachable dual controllers (switch), hd-rumble (switch), dual-screen gameplay (ds), microphone gameplay (ds), stereoscopic 3D gameplay (virtualboy, 3ds).
It's simply their philosophy to experiment and innovate on input device and gameplay, and it's one of the reason Nintendo is still here unlike Atari or Sega.Last edited by JimmyFantasy - on 15 July 2019
