On the handheld the game has the right resolution, the right button layout etc.
Games can only feel natural on the hardware they were intended to run in the first place.
Handhelds have their justification when they get original software.
VBut hey, since it seems to be THE platform for new 2D stuff going forward, I've got no choice but support it.

Were you ever young enough to be a kid and want fun on the go? When you're on a trip or late at night where you can't watch any more TV, what kid wouldn't want a handheld?
Recap wrote:Any "original software" for a handheld you can think of could be much better on a TV system. That's a fact which leaves no room at all to be questioned. Hence the drama.

So what you're saying is that if a handheld would be wired up to a TV and a joystick would be attached to it, it would magically make all the games "much better"?
icycalm wrote:Not better. Simply playable. And then not all games -- only the ones who were designed to be played with a stick on a large screen. The rest of the games would remain essentially unaffected by this change.
Now I suggest we try and keep this thread on-topic.
