“No game is perfect” might be a cliché, but it’s also completely true. Even some of the best games out there have flaws, and often, those flaws can be the kind that aren’t exactly easy to ignore. For instance, over the years, we’ve played more than a few games that have, by and large, been anywhere from solid to downright spectacular, and yet for all their strengths, they don’t have the best controls- quite the opposite, in fact. Here, we’re going to talk about a few such games. 

RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2

Let’s kick things off with what’s probably the most prominent example of a great game with bad controls in recent years. Red Dead Redemption 2 is a jaw-droppingly impressive masterpiece in more ways than one, but its controls have, of course, been criticized widely, frequently, and persistently. As anyone who’s played the game will tell you, it’s not hard to see why Rockstar’s open world epic gets that criticism. On top of input latency and heavy in-game movement coming together for many to criticize the game’s controls as being cumbersome, the actual layout of Red Dead Redemption 2’s setup on a gamepad has also often come under fire at times, especially with unintentional inputs thanks to its weapon wheels, context-sensitive dialogue system, and what have you.
