Can't memorize the buttons!

by ieatramen Sat Dec 11, 2010 11:55 am

Been playing Splatterhouse for 360 and whenever the "action button" prompt pops up when i'm fighting my mind reverts back to the layout of an snes controller and push the wrong button. It's driving me nuts :lol:
I've been playing on the 360 for 3 years now and i still haven't memorized where the x, y, a, b buttons are! Anyone else have trouble with the different controllers from various systems?

The Xbox and dreamcast both give me this problem. Having the same button layout with different names to the SNES is frustrating. Its compounded even more by the fact that I use the UK SNES with the red, blue green and yellow buttons - all of these coloured buttons are in different positions to the other controllers too, so I cant even rely on colour prompts.

No other console really gives me this issue, due to different layouts or different button names.

Growing up on the Playstation. I just call the 360's face buttons circl, X, square, triangle... It's weird though, only this console gives me trouble remembering the buttons letter.

I chalk it up to there just being too damn many buttons these days.
The PSTV is amazing.

When playing on my cousins 360 I have the same problem, because it's different from Nintendo's consoles (I'm mostly used to the layout of the DS).

I also have trouble telling if it wants me to press RT or RB due to small letters of the HD generation. It's easier to tell apart 1 and 2 when a PS3 game asks me to press R1 or R2

I chalk it up to developers relying on a ridiculous and immersion-breaking game mechanic.

If I'm playing Xbox with people I sometimes say press the X button, because I'm so used to the Playstation controller.

Oh, and on the DS when it says press the a button sometimes I'll still press B because the a button should be at the bottom.
