Hi Jason,

Yes - anything and everything to bring to the attention of developers that change is needed.

I'd recommend you and others with concerns post on relating forums and via direct e-mail and even written letters. Make mention of the IGDA's GASIG (i.e. us) and this will help even further...

Barrie,



I could not agree more. What can we do? Can we start sending position statements to game developers with specific suggestions?



Just a thought,



Jason

Grand Theft Auto - control scheme... What a nightmare...

A "context button" and on-screen menu could have got rid of 80% of those controls for gamers needing it...



Still "R2" looks like a fun button to interface to for one-switch gamers playing in a team...
