level 1

Am I weird that I still prefer buttons?

level 2

Touchscreens are a major reason I will never get into mobile gaming. There's just not enough feedback and I feel screens will never be able to provide the feel that buttons do.

level 2

Buttons are superior for a lot of reasons.

level 2

No. Im gonna be stuck driving a pre 20teens vehicle forever. Not because im that odd 'obsessed with old cars to a fault' guy, but because I fucking hate touchscreen dashboards SO. FUCKING. MUCH. they're flat out awful and I loathe their imposition.

level 2

Not at all. Buttons can be extremely reliably pressed without looking at them, unlike a touchscreen. I could type entire sentences reliably without even looking at my phone let alone my fingers when I had one with physical buttons. No chance of that happening with a touchscreen.

level 2

I’ve spent too many years developing hand-eye coordination to resort to a 6 inch screen with shitty reaction time and using a finger for accuracy

level 2

I hate touchscreens on everything. My finger tips have a constant burning sensation.

level 2

Buttons and big screen, nothing less does it.

level 2

Nope, Man I even miss the old arcade sticks and buttons.

level 2

No. For many applications touchscreens aren't a feature but a cost cutting measure. High quality electromechanical components (buttons, rotary encoders, potentiometers) are some of the most expensive single components you will find in circuits. Touch screens are heavily commoditized. By replacing physical buttons by touchscreens companies get to save money and pretend it's a "feature" because it seems more modern somehow.

level 2

Buttons have better response time right?

level 1

In my day gameboys were bigger with fewer colors.

level 2

But did you have a gameboy color? Cause that's where it was at

level 1

... This hurt my SOUL. Christ, I started on the original Gameboy and... and...

level 2

Well... come on dude, she is like 4 at the most and has probably never seen a game boy before. Do you think she should just knows these things when she's Borne?

level 2

Wait till you see a kid trying to swipe or pinch-zoom on a magazine...

level 1

Kids these days... I bet when she figures out how to use the buttons she's going to trade her pikachu just so she can evolve it.
