It's utter nonsense, and the argument can never be won.
Who's ever heard of a fighter pilot using a pad to fly the plane against a joystick. The quick and accurate joystick control is used because of that fact, and I doubt anybody would ever switch to anything else for accuracy.
My thoughts and conclusion of this thread is for it to be closed, for it is completely pointless unless we can get back on topic, stefcep, and stop banging on about how much better Mario, the SNES and the gamepad etc are. If you want to rant on about it, why don't you start a new thread and leave this one to get back on topic.
