Are dpads obsolete?
>>
Yep, it's all about VR now
>>
D-Pads are much better suited for 2D games than analog sticks. And last I checked, 2D games are still alive and well.

So no, they're not obsolete. Faggot.

Fuck no.

Best D-pad: N64 and SNES

D-pads will never be obsolete as long as games with binary movement/interfaces exist.

Also, god-tier dpad reporting it.
>>
>>322949830
That game has more to do with twin-stick shooters than platformers, though.

Imagine that shit with dual dpads. Mm.

doesnt nintendo own the dpad copyright or something
>>
>>322949274
no, but only Nintendo makes good ones.
>>
>>322950402
That's not the pro controller d-pad.
>>
>>322949274
Sadly yes. Digital input for analog movement is stupid. The fact they are still around is just proof that everyone just copies Nintendo (who used to copy Sega and vice versa).

African Mahogany is objectively best. Anyone who says otherwise is brain dead and tasteless.

Yeah d-pads are alive and well. They're not even used directional these days, they are just buttons with a legacy shape.

I'm one of those faggots that uses the d-pad in fighting games.
>>
>>322950806
Every 3D ps2 game uses the analog for movement. The only purpose of the dpad is for menus (which the analog stick can do just fine) and 2D games which are sadly a rarity these days.

Imagine a dpad that controls not only up and down, left and right, but also in and out. A 3 dimensional dpad shaped like a ball that is its own standalone controller that can be used with our mouths because the tongue has a surprising amount of control.

The wireless 3D ballpad would work in tandem with a second controller used with the hands and it would naturally have more buttons than typical controllers of today because the real estate normally reserved for a 2D dpad would be replaced with more buttons. More buttons allow for more inputs, more button combinations, resulting in more options for the player and deeper mechanics for the game overall.

Extra mechanism can be built into the 3D ballpad, for example, vibration. To add extra flare and immersion to the game, the ballpad can vibrate into the player's throat, effectively suffocating them. The wet dream of "die in the game, die in real life" would be fulfilled. Players who do not seek such hardcore adrenaline can also control the 3D ballpad with their anus sphincters and the vibrations will feel good in their butts and compound the pleasure of gaming with a sexual one.

>>322949274
Not at all, I hate that it's so hard to use the one on my 3DS.
>>
Trust me on this.
You can't fucking play Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon with the slide pad, its too fucking temperamental.
D-pad is good for precise minimal movements.

If its 8 directional it can work pretty well.
Super Smash TV does it well.

Could an analogue Dpad work?
For example, Smash Bros seems like it could work well with a Dpad but dashing and Smash attacks really need analogue controls.

>>322951427
The gamecube controllers analog stick will always be the best for tony hawk games.

Yes. Only Nintendo games use them.

Hell nah. The best d-pads have short travel and are really clicky. The Xbone controller is a good example.

I like the gamecube analog stick a lot. but not for fuckin tony hawk or SF

Yeah, but for a particular shape (external and internal). The same Sony does theirs and MS their shitastic Dpad design.

D-pads are used a lot in console RPGs and some actions gams to 'quick select' spells / equipment so that shit is gonna stay relevant for a while.
