I gave you list of games in post #114, 137. That's enough for the conclusion which also happens to be logical and mathematically supported. All parameters are present. My playing of Popeye and DK was given in REC files. I don't need to play the whole game to show the higher failure rate of analog joysticks. Just spots where the uncertainty and long throw a play a big role. If you want to see the experiment repeated live, come over and I'll put it in your face since you can't seem to do it yourself. As I said, I played hundreds of games but whatever data is presented is sufficient to draw the conclusion.
All the parameters are missing. Every specific move you made in your fake experiment. You can't just say that you "played hundreds of games" or you ran your experiment a hundred times, you have to spell out what you did, how you did it, who you did it to,
A "list of games" is not all the parameters, so that is definitely far far from "enough" for a conclusion. The only thing "logical" about your position is that it is logical to assume that you will continue to make excuses for failing to reveal how you ran your experiments, who you ran them on, what gear you ran them with, what data was gathered from these "hundreds" of experiments and what the conclusions, if any, were the result. Adding up the number of times you refuse to follow the scientific method does not mathematically support your theory (even though it is a rapidly increasing value). You haven't even looked at that link, have you? No, of course not. If you had you would see what it is you are required to do as someone who claims to have run "hundreds" of experiments. Yet you won't. For shame.
Nobody cares what your playing of Popeye and DK resulted in. Why? Because you insist that digital joysticks provide better control than analog joysticks for everybody, not just you. Nobody disputes that you hate analog joysticks and suck at using them. What everybody disputes is that you have proven that almost everybody scores higher when playing video games with digital joysticks as opposed to analog joysticks, something you have claimed more than once yet never supported with a shred of evidence. All we get is samples of games you have played. You do not represent all or even most video game players. You merely represent yourself and your cross-dressing alter-ego.
I want to see you run this lie of an experiment you claim to have run. That means that when I show up you better have -
(1) a control group of video game players and an experimental group of video game players who are participating in a double-blind experiment (meaning they don't know what controllers they're actually using for a specific game and neither do you until you check the controllers afterwards in order to negate your overbearing bias towards one type of controller),
(2) a series of sample joysticks for the gamers to use, some of which are actual digital joysticks, some of which are actual analog joysticks, some of which are digital joysticks with analog joystick guts and some which are analog joysticks with digital joystick guts so that they can be randomly used by the gamers (each with a unique marking so that you can match them to the test runs later),
(3) a large sample of games to be played that include games that are geared towards digital joysticks, games that are geared towards analog joysticks and games that are geared more towards other controller types (trackballs, paddles, etc.) but that can be played with joysticks,
(4) a video camera to record every gaming run by every gamer in either test group,
(5) an accurate way to record the outputs from the various joysticks (not any useless joystick "simulator") that are hooked into the gaming console. This console should be one that can both accept a number of different joysticks and be able to read both types of joysticks natively.
I list this out for you because we all know that you have done nothing like this before. You have made it clear that you only tested yourself, which makes your theory worthless. You have made it clear that you are unaware of or incapable of understanding the scientific method (I put that same link in again in order to give you the opportunity to ignore it twice) which makes your testing methods worthless. So now I have done for you what you cannot do for yourself, which is formulate a comprehensive, unbiased experiment for you to conduct. I expect to see at least 6 people in the control group and another 6 in the experimental group (although more would make for a more convincing test). These people should be of varying video gaming abilities and experience.
You are just choosing random analogies. Dr. Frog did not want to perform the experiment because he was narrow-minded and considered himself a big-shot. You are just name-calling. Once again you fail to understand that logic/math is not a replacement for the experiment. The experiment and logic/math are two ways to prove my point.
Not familiar with "Dr. Frog", but I have heard of Dr. Jackass. Have you? Goes like this. Once a puma living in the hills came to visit Dr. Jackass who spent all his time online.
"Accepted by many" doesn't have to mean majority. There are other people who accept that digital joysticks provide superior control than analog joysticks-- I mentioned some of those big names-- MasterPlay, Amiga Corp., Commodore, Atari, etc. etc. And you see from the polls many people besides the two active arguers accept the same. You are just speculating and acting like Dr. Frog: "I don't know of anyone besides you two who makes such a claim." That's your limited vision.
You chose an analogy that had nothing to do with the debate and I found one that directly applies to you. Which one is random, again?
Where do you get the idea that I'm "just name-calling"? If it's ok for you to reference a story with two frogs in it then I can reference a story that involves a mountain lion and a donkey. Now I wonder why you would think that "jackass" was aimed at you. Psychologically project much?
Yes, the experiment and logic/math are two ways to prove your point. Let us know when you actually accomplish either of those.
You see from your own poll that many people besides the legion of people refuting you accept that analog joysticks are better. Since you are so terrible with English I will mention now that corporations are not "people", so when you claim that "there are other people who accept that digital joysticks provide superior control than analog joysticks" and then list gaming/computer companies you sound even more ridiculous than you normally do when you are merely making excuses for why you won't release all the data from your experiments along with all the parameters involved in those experiments. Or are you saying you know individuals named Atari, Amiga Corp., etc.? I suppose you might know someone who insists on being called "Commodore" but why would you want to?
I'm not speculating, I am certain that you will never, ever, back up your claims about having "megabytes" of data from "hundreds" of experiments.
P.S. Put-up or shut-up time. Release all the data from your "experiments" along with all the parameters from those experiments or it's colossal fail for you.
