  • It's been 7 years, do this again. PUBG has really complicated controls. Exactly the opposite of suggested. Why did that work?

  • Ah, I remember when mobile games were actually somewhat promising, nowadays the top 100 games are all absolute garbage yet still get 5 star reviews.

  • I feel this. I've emulated pokemon games, and running can be a chore whilst battles are fine.

  • The only reason to ever emulate another system's controller is if you're literally emulating a different console

  • Thanks, I'll make sure to put an emulated controller right in the middle of the screen that's so small it's impossible to ever hope to use.

  • To be fair, there have been many great games like Oceanhorn and Dead Trigger that use joysticks and the like. It's often neccesary to alllow more games to come onto the platform

  • There are games on console that would work just fine on touch screens. Two I can think of right know are Pokémon and Fire Emblem.
    – In Pokémon, ignoring overworld travel, everything is done through menus. Menus can easily be navigated using touch screen, which you often can on 3DS already. The only quirk to solve here is overworld travel, otherwise it works flawlessly on mobile. – Overworld travel could be done through either pressing where to go, and the character will pathfind the shortest route. Alternatively you press down on the screen, and drag in the direction you want to move, like a virtual control-stick, but the center is always where you pressed it down. As the overworld don't have anything that moves (aside from spin-off titles), there's no need for precise controls, and you can take your time to move.
    – In Fire Emblem, overworld travel is done in a grid, and you have to confirm each move. This means you could choose a character, then press where on the grid to move, it'll show the path, and then you confirm it if it's good. More can be added to this system to make it better. – Everything else is done through menus? I haven't played the game myself, but for what I've seen, it should work fine on touch screens. It's also turn based, so there's no hurry making precise moves with a clumsy touch screen.

  • Whatever creative babble you throw at me Floyd, I will state that touch screen games are inferior and a madness brewed by uneducated masses and greedy schemers with access to technology they neither need not deserve. Thank you

  • I wish people at Blizzard had seen this video before designing Diablo Immortal. A turn-based Diablo would have been a very interesting prospect, but I can't imagine classic ARPG controls without buttons/keys feeling right. Let's hope I'm wrong…

  • Well I am watching this video in 2019, and I play a lot of PUBG and fortnite on my phone.. So some of your specalutions we'rent correct, but some were 😀
