Submission + - SPAM: The Slowdown: Where's the Joy in Pad Demos?

Martyn Zachary writes: "The Slowdown have published an article that laments the shift from mouse-powered FPS gameplay demonstrations to gamepad-recorded gameplay — the writer of the article believes that recently, PR departments are increasingly inclined to demonstrating multiplatform games with gamepad footage only, leaving PC players out of the equation altogether.

The story contains three video examples, of BioShock 2, Singularity and Resistance 2, illustrating why gamepad footage can be seen to be a negative factor. Finally, the author attempts to explain why he finds such footage so irritating — especially when the topic is effectively much ado about nothing?"
