I for one hated using R2/L2 or RT/LT to accelerate/brake, and immediately switched the controls to 'classic' mode in IV. After so many years with the III era games, it just feels more natural to me.

 

What do you prefer?

Can 'classic' even be implemented into the controllers with all the new features being added?

 

Vote and discuss.

No, new system is way better with a xbox controller imo. (Can't speak for ps cause I don't own 1)

Wouldn't mind it as an option.

But I wouldn't even come close to enabling it.

I prefer using the triggers to accelerate, you can control the speed with triggers. With a button, it is either no power or full power.

Lol. Nostalgia.

 

I don't see how anyone can not like the trigger system that lets you control your speed more precisely, but whatever.

The controls are exactly the same - in terms of button allocation - on both the 360/PS3 (in classic mode anyway).

maybe u should have given it a longer try... u have to get used to new stuff before being able to handle them properly...

 

but who am i to judge? i play with an inverted Y -Axis, i have to and i don't wanna get used to the standard setting.

i believe it feels right or me because i see the stick as a head, i wanna look down, so i push the head forward smile.gif if someone puts a hand on your head and moves it backward, u will look up. easy wink.gif

same with acceleration... its more like a pedal with the L2/R2 LT/LR, and cars have pedals...

You actually can control the speed/braking power with the buttons because they are pressure-sensitive, just like the triggers.

I must've missed that. I only returned to this forum after the online trailer. My apologies.

I just looked up if the buttons are pressure sensitive, they are not, on both PS3 and Xbox 360. Only the analog sticks and triggers are. Stop with the lies.

No need to be so hostile chief.

 

I don't know where the hell you looked, but I can assure you that the harder I apply my thumb on the brake button, the quicker the vehicle comes to a halt. Whereas the softer I hold the button, the longer it takes to brake.

I bet if you hit the button with a hammer, it would instantly halt the car.

Just type it into google, about 100% of the answers say they are not pressure sensitive, except for the triggers and the analog sticks, here is a Q&A that says they are not.

I voted yes, but I won't use it. I would like having the option, which is something I wanted in RDR. In RDR trying to shoot while maintaining speed on horseback was awkward. I hope they fine tune that, unless they purpously made it awkward. Just my opinion.

If it was an option,yes. If not, then NO. The triggers are a lot better to drive with IMO.

I prefer triggers to buttons for aiming/shooting and driving. But I hate the L2/R2 half-trigger bullsh*t or whatever it is on PS3. They just feel "squishy." XBox controllers clearly superior in this regard, in my opinion.

 

So I don't know really. I'd much prefer R1/L1.

No, they are pressure sensitive. On PlayStation at least, not sure about Xbox.

Accelerating with X was stupid and annoying. With R2/L2 you have the ability to drive slow easier and cruise. In X you had to tap it repeatedly to drive slow and that was tedious, annoying, and took the fun out of cruising. I couldn't care less if the option was tossed. Accelerating with X were the bad times IMHFO.
