GamingThread Sony's Dualshock 4 restriction for the PS5 raises concerns of accessibility
Reason User Banned (1 month): concern trolling, ignoring staff post
I think the solution here is for Sony or 3rd party to create a controller for people with disabilities, like Microsoft did. DS4 wasn't designed with those people in mind, if it was better for them, I guess it was a lucky side-effect - but it can be made even better. It's a bit sad that Sony didn't come out with their own version of the adaptive controller. I hope they do so this gen - or at least officially licence a 3rd party adaptive controler. With that said - I still think what Sony did with the controller is a good move - pushing for new technologies and experiences. Personally I prefer the generational approach. The solution for people with disabilities shouldn't be "let's not change our tech" - it should be "let's make a range of controllers designed for people with special needs". It is an important issue. I also have to wonder - how many people here are genuinely concerned about people with special needs (which I would like to be true), and how many are just riding on that "anti-consumer" train that is now a thing here. I do hope most people here truly do feel empathy towards people that can't use every controller. But the pressure on Sony to create more accessible controllers should've been present this generation, too - and it should continue in the next one.


GamingThread I had forgotten how bad 30 FPS was...
Reason User warned: platform wars rhetoric
I’m sure your 5 year old could tell the difference in latency between a 30 and 60fps game. And you were nauseous from a 30fps game? God, the PC Master Race is really taking all those God of War GOTY awards hard. Look, no doubt 60 fps >> 30 fps. No question. But you act as if 30 fps is some blight on humanity :)


GamingThread Motherboard: ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Players Are Excited to Attack and Kill Feminists in the Game
Reason User warned: dismissing concerns, false equivalences and personal attacks
There is no need to "defend gamers" because gamers are not a homogenous group of like-minded people. Attack those who are responsible, not bundles of people. Attack bigots, racists, male chauvinists - no one should defend them. But don't attack entire groups that these people happen to be a part of. It's like.... like attacking "car owners" because of drunk drivers - sorry for the same analogy as before, but you get what I'm trying to say. You can't possibly know what I care for more or less. Also, I don’t equate gaming with misogyny because gaming is so many things and this is my argument here. I am firmly against misogyny - and you're trying put words in my mouth. I have serious issues with people projecting bad things on entire groups. That is called prejudice, and I have experienced it a lot in my life. My whole life I stood firmly for peace, inclusion and tolerance, and yet - I was often called out just because of my nationality when traveling abroad (asked questions like: "so, have you ever carried a gun?" .... "so, do you hate that nationality?" etc). So yes, I am strongly against prejudice, I know it when I see it and it is dangerous. Nothing gives you the right - no holy cause or righteous motive - to make blanket statements about a whole group of people. You are prejudiced.
