    Why do you use the D Pad?

    Why do u care ? If it suits another one leave him as long as it doesn't bother you :)

    Because analog sticks have been on playstation controllers since the PS1 and other controllers for longer.


    Well im used to it since sega days

    Thought i was alone using the D-Pad, respect lads.

    D-Pad is the best mate since childhood

    I hear you mt

    After using D pads from Nintendo NES times i find it impossible to use the analogue left stick or right when using the d pad; just not symmetrically placed hands (dont get started on xbox controllers). If you need to use both sticks at once that seems alot easier.

    In Fifa 17, 18 and 19 it was near impossible (for me) to do the body feint combos using the d pad which was massive.

    Stop being a baby. It takes one day to reset your muscle memory and another to adapt to the stick. I can't even imagine how people play without full 360 movement. It's a major handicap for no good reason.

    Hi @amrbido_9, I'm sorry if you feel that I was attacking, I really wasn't. I just wanted to understand why people use the D pad? I was wondering if it's perhaps due to a disability, or like some have said, due to being unable to adapt to the analogue stick.

    I have an interest in gaming with disabilities having 2 siblings that are disabled, so it was absolutely a genuine question.

    I remember watching a video of a severely disabled guy playing Starcraft 2 and it amazed me how good he was despite having to adapt so much.

    Glad it got fixed for you.
    Still can't understand why you wouldn't want to upgrade to the analogue sticks but each to their own

    Cause D-pad is better ?

    Lol

    @Knowlesdinho None taken mate. I know you meant well no worries, its all good. Its just i love d-pad better since i was a kid. Not a disability or something. Its just some people love playing the analogue and some people like the D-pad like me. So everyone should use what he feels comfortable with without anyone insulting the others like most of the people here.

    And again, it's all good mate no worries. Have a good day ! ;)

    Bah all this I'm old I cant change stuff is giving us older gamers a bad name. I'm 38 and using the analogue sticks, theres really no excuse. If you say I just cant be bothered to switch fair enough. But us oldies can do anything the younger lads can!

    Even though it may take a little longer...

    Why do you use the D Pad?

    Cause im old and used to it and cant change the habit

    I'm curious as to how well you do online? It would be quite funny if the actual key to success in this game is to use the D pad :joy:

    I use it and have got elite 3 every time so far 😂 Much to my friends amazement! I honestly couldn't change . Too old lol.

    I use the D pad on the PS when I had them, never liked the placement of the analog stick on their remote. Its the main reason I only play on xbox now.

    I can understand as I can't play any game shooter without inverted axis. I have tried but I just end up running round looking at my feet or the sky :D

    Fellow d pad user here, always have done and tried the analogue but it made no difference to my wl finish so I’ve stuck with what I’m happy with! Has the latch changed free kicks / penalties with the d pad?
