    Arrow Games with Awkward Controls?

    Let's hear your opinions. Tank controls in general can be awful of course and in general lag of any kind would be kind of unwelcome. Especially if the game in question kinda demands precision from you.

    I can't recall any game that had a comfortable tank-driving experience. Steel Battalion was cool but nobody had that $200 controller. Anything else just feels like driving a really slow car or it's too simplistic, point-and-click nightmare.

    But just an overall feel for games with awkward controls? There are plenty. Hell, even FFXV felt awkward after they changed the control scheme between the demo and the full release. I think one for me right now would be Nights of Azure 2 on the Switch because it uses B to confirm instead of A and it's fucking with me.

    Takes a while to get used to Dark Souls games for me. Especially if I pick a heavier class. That armour makes the controls feel clunky as hell.

    I also didn't much like how clunky Mafia III felt. Honestly couldn't get into the game because of the controls.

    Oh shit, yeah, on that exact note - Lords of the Fallen is a prime example of controls literally getting in the way of the game. I wanted to like it because I like Souls-esque games but the delay between doing a thing and watching it happen was far too great for the game to be enjoyable. You'd have to literally predict EVERYTHING in order to do anything, before the enemy had even started any animations, if you wanted to block or parry. Poor design for what could have been an enjoyable game.

    I feel like most games have a somewhat standard system for button layout. I hate games that deviate from it, or don't allow you to change the layout. This is especially true for shooters.

    Bioshock and Bioshock 2, both had bizarre layouts. I ended up relying primarily on melee and plasmids just because aiming was so awkward.

    Mega Man Legends 1 and 2 both had weird controls since this was capcom's first attempt at a 3D mega man but both games were amazing despite the awkwardness of the movement. I had to set my controls to where the analog stick turns mega man and he strifes with the shoulder buttons since those are the control schemes I grew up on.

    If you've played MGSV a ton and then play MG Survive, you'll be mad.

    If you'd never played a video game in your life, Survive would still probably make you mad.
