It totally did! Until they added all those motion controls… that just screwed everything up.

    Just goes to show that NOOBtendo is only catering to kids nowadays. Back in my day you had to tilt the shit out of your controller to help you get around those tight corners but with the Wii-mote everything is on easy mode! Anyone can move their hands, I moved my whole body!

    I have been raging about this phenomena since I was five years old. You see, I went to a daycare center when I was a kid, and they had an SNES with a bunch of games, one of which was Super Mario World. EVERY GODDAMN KID pulled this shit when they jumped. Thanks for bringing up bad memories, Shawn.

    and now it does! Freak'n motion controls, ruining my video games!

    Another Myth Busted: Agent Smith tilts the controller while playing.

    Don't forget swearing vehemently.

    Motion controls did ruin everything.

    *The following is me playing Mario Kart Wii on Rainbow Road*
    Time to take this corner, tilt the controler, tilt it some more *Leans far* *motion controls spaz out and it registers as if I'm turning the other way*

  7. TehVortex on May 28th, 2011 6:53 am


    You KNOW you can see around that corner.

  8. therandombear on May 28th, 2011 7:00 am

    I think it's a law or something…ya pretty sure it's a law.

  9. Toldry on May 28th, 2011 7:51 am

    I didn't just tilt the controlled, I actually moved it from side to side.

    Mario Kart made me smash my N64 controller on the wall so goddamn much

  10. DTurboKiller on May 28th, 2011 8:16 am

    Funny, I tilted my head around, not the controller, though sometimes both. It feels just like leaning around them corners man!
    And let's not even mention the effect caused by massive explosions/crashing: the effect was so amazing I almost backflipped out of my chair and faceplanted.
    Too bad the chair itself didn't survive the awesomeness, either way it was 50€ well spent!

    Thats why you shoudn't play videogames on a mountain.

    (That means YOU red.)

  12. HughbertEsq on May 28th, 2011 8:42 am

    Just in case you forgot how "bad-ass" you are

  13. Sr_Pantalones on May 28th, 2011 8:42 am

    You know that **** helps you turn better…… Mr. Anderson

  14. Alpar on May 28th, 2011 8:52 am

    Pausing right before death:

    Because you also just wanna take a moment to condense how much fail you weaved into that last move which led to your ultimate demise, and subsequently, your next facepalm. Feels bad, man…

  15. CriticalQuit on May 28th, 2011 9:05 am

    "Looking like a jackass" is one of the reasons I don't like driving games. The other being I suck at them and don't find them fun XD

    Look at the Irate Gamer's Contra review. With his shaking, he's unstoppable!

    Space Ghost finds your ruffian tilting and late 90s clothes to be most distasteful!

  18. dope92 on May 28th, 2011 12:59 pm

    so jack nicholson plays video games hunh?

  19. gamegeneral on May 28th, 2011 1:45 pm

    Anyone else getting a serious Postal Guy vibe from that dude? Or is it a Postal Dude vibe from that Guy?
    I forget.

  20. spplmj on May 28th, 2011 1:49 pm

    Oh please… Experts don't need to turn.

    Brings me back to final boss of Rayman 2 The Great Escape…
    I was tilting my whole body back then…

  22. TomQuoVadis on May 28th, 2011 4:19 pm

    That, and ramming buttons when you were waiting to respawn. It totally makes you come back faster.

  23. Mikau94 on May 28th, 2011 4:45 pm

    Tilting the controller hardly does anything, you need to tilt your head at the same time!

  24. BlurrySandwich on May 28th, 2011 4:54 pm

    And to help you *Piccolo's voice* DODGE!!!

  25. Zyquux on May 28th, 2011 5:05 pm

    I can't believe that no has mentioned leaning to dodge bullets!
    (Unless someone has and I missed it, in which case, my apologies.)

    Before these newfangled "motion controls," we dodged bullets with the leaning of our bodies, callouses of our thumbs, and sweat of our brows!

    Granted, it actually works in this game.

  26. TheQueenofSouls(DT) on May 28th, 2011 5:07 pm

    Biting down on your tongue: a proven way to enhance gameplay.

  27. Uzumakiclan43 on May 28th, 2011 6:43 pm

    Remember, kids, if you want to play video games to the EXTREEEEMMME, wear '90's clothing, tilt the controllers, and scream at the televison! EXTREEME! This message brought to you by Yuuma Tsukumo.

    Don't worry, the Wii has made it so that those morons who tilted the controller during racing games can finally play correctly.

  29. Totema on May 28th, 2011 9:44 pm

    Why do I doubt that his controller is even plugged in?

  30. tmotom on May 28th, 2011 11:05 pm

    I hate tilting the controller. I don't like to because it makes me look like a chinese retard fag. I play normally ._. Unless of course it's the Nintendo 64 racing wheel. Because then, you already look like an idiot and moving around a bit wont really harm you any further.

  31. Kn0w1d3a on May 29th, 2011 11:19 am

    Pushing buttons as hard as humanly possible when charging
    BECAUSE YOU KNOW it makes you charge faster.

  32. Solid_Spy on May 29th, 2011 11:27 am

    Remember when you leaned towards the TV to help you see farther, only to find out that you forgot to zoom in, and even after doing so, you continued to lean towards the TV to see even farther and got that shot off to kill your target?

    Good times.

  33. MagmarFire on May 29th, 2011 6:20 pm

    Tilting the controller? Pfft. Flicking the controller upwards to make you jump farther is where it's at.

  34. Uzumakiclan43 on May 29th, 2011 9:03 pm

    I know that I'm taking a risk by double posting here, but I think a troll is in the dungeon.

    rel="nofollow"> You know what that means.

  35. Lord of Chaos on May 30th, 2011 11:51 am

    Feh! I press A+B+Down! It always results in a higher catch rate!

  36. death_by_Cucco on May 30th, 2011 5:56 pm

    I had a friend as a kid who would not only tilt the controller he would jurk it around so much he once pulled my N64 out of the tv cabant I had in and out on to the coffee table

  37. PortalMan118 on June 11th, 2011 2:56 am

    I move my entire body when driving a vehicle.

    It's the reason why I can't ever do a barrel roll.
