FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

BOTTOM LINE

Whoever designed the PSP without a second analog stick doomed the system.  It is only successful because kids want it and some adults like its flexibility, but, it is a FAILURE because it cannot reproduce the control scheme of games it is designed to mimic in graphical quality.

Face Buttons =/= analog stick. That's putting it perfectly.

You could easily have multiplayer Counterstrike, Rainbow 6 and whatever else with high playability if the system had two analog sticks.   Right now, all PSP is good for is 3Rd person fighting games or 2D fighters.
