Dean, why didn't you just get a wired Xbox 360 controller?
I have one but part of the reason I dlslike emulation is because I'm not using the controller that the games were designed for. This was my way of getting around that and it was only six quid. I'd much rather have the actual console and games though. I'm not such a fan of emulating as a whole but there have been some SNES games I wanted to play recently and this seemed like the best way to do it.
Also, the D-pad on Xbox 360 controllers is awful for this kind of thing, in my opinion. And using the analogue stick wouldn't feel right.
Also, you talked about Persona 1 & 2 not having aged well, and then I saw you beat Wind Waker (my favourite Zelda), and that is a game that has aged really well.
I'm just assuming Persona 1 & 2 haven't aged well because nobody talks about them. There are PSP re-releases available, which might be better. But yea, Wind Walker definitely still looked nice because of the cell shading. As a game though, I preferred OoT. The sailing in Wind Walker got a bit boring for me after a while. Sailing aside though, pretty good game.
I just got Borderlands 2
Never played either of those but I'd like to give them a shot some time. Problem is that they are meant for online play and I've not had Xbox Live for over half a year now. I just don't use my Xbox at all any more since my mate moved away and is never on it either.
