Gaming machines are one of the most beautiful parts of our gamers’ childhood and youth. However, everything has a “dark side”, and here are 8 good examples of that. Brothers see if the standard offline!
8. Nintendo 64 – Analog stick required
The joystick of the Nintendo 64 has always been something quite awful.
Its 3-prong design is pretty great for mutants with 3 hands but for a normal person it’s a bit confusing. However, that is only superficial. What brings it to this list is the analog stick.
It is something that people use constantly but were not designed to do. It will loosen up over time and will tilt itself in any direction. At this point, gamers will have to tilt the need to compensate for the foolishness of the need. If not, it will automatically control your character.
7. Nintendo 3DS – The screen does not move automatically broken
Nintendo again, but this time the screen.
The best thing about the design of this handheld game console is that it aims to make the screen more durable. The clamshell design will fold the two screens together and you will feel secure when throwing this device into your backpack without fear of its screen breaking or scratching.
However, in reality it is not so.
The main screen is much larger than the touch screen below. When you fold the device, the border of the touch screen will close against the background of the main screen. And you just need to put the device somewhere that put it under a little bit of pressure (like in a cramped backpack for example), the lower screen border will bump into and cause the screen to break.
Nintendo fixed this design bug with the 3DS XL version, but it didn’t make much sense either. Anyway, users who have previously trusted Nintendo have already received enough.
6. Sony PlayStation – Overheating problem, “cool wire” reader
Everyone has their first time, right?
Sony stormed the world when it launched its PS1 in 1994. This console brought gamers great games like Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy VII and many more.
At least it can run … usually …
Early PlayStation devices often tended to overheat because the air vents were placed underneath. Reading a CD is also often problematic because Laser readers are quite easy to degrade. And it was so popular that gamers at that time had to think of enough games and try to be brave for hours just to let it run and let them play the game. It was rumored that turning the device upside down would make it easier to read the disc, others would use a finger to spin the disc and start praying with all sorts of gods.
But okay, overall, the PS1 is still a very successful machine.
5. Nintendo Wii U – Just looking at it will drain the battery
A little more battery, who wouldn’t die?
After the success of the Wii, Nintendo decided to take advantage of the handheld game console. It was a 6-inch game console, and it would have been great had it not been for the battery problem.
