OSNews, Generic OSes Change platforms. Whenever you can. Ever since I got into computing, I've lived according to a very simple adage: change platforms all the time. For reasons I won't go into, the importance of this adage was reaffirmed today, and I figured I'd share it with you all - and hopefully, get a few of you to follow this adage as well.

Tales of Symphonia on GameCube was my introduction to the series and it was an amazing experience, easily one of the best games I've ever played (and very few RPGs can claim this--I'm not normally into that style of game). Tales of the Abyss was also excellent, although being on the weaker PS2 and having to deal with that system's controller hampered the experience somewhat for me.


I'm curious to know which controller you prefer most and why.

I have practically every type of controller kicking around the house except the XBox ones (Gamecube, PS2, PS3, Wii, etc.) and the ones I consider the best and use pretty much exclusively with my PC via an adapter are the PS2 controllers.

(My PS3 DualShock controller needs no adapter and I can access the pressure sense data on the buttons too if I want, but I don't like the rocking L2/R2 buttons)

I pretty much avoid all Nintendo controllers (the Gamecube ones are for my brother's Wii and my Wii controller is for IR head-tracking experiments) because they always have a problem with wearing out too readily.

(It happened with every controller type I've owned. SNES buttons, N64 analog stick, and Gamecube analog stick. I haven't played Wii enough to know if the Nunchuck's stick wears out.)
