The spiral keyboard in Beyond Good and Evil is brilliant.

how is that any different from scrolling up or sideways other than the shape?

still takes the same amount of time to reach each letter.


It takes much less time. The stick naturally rotates and that is how you move the cursor; you only need to rotate and stop, which is much easier and less time consuming than constantly changing directions up/down/left/right. Also, it can be in alphabetical order this way which is a more natural way of approaching it; a traditional keyboard is set up for effective typing use/technique which does not apply at all when using a controller.

If you still don't think it makes a difference then you've just never tried it. I honestly don't know why you'd even bother to comment without trying it

Steam's flower keyboard is easily the best way to type with a controller.

I think (hope) he was talking about the image linked in the post above him. That weird circular keyboard.
