"...touch controls allowed you to draw lines, swipe the screen, touch specific spots with accuracy, and write stuff, while buttons allowed us to perform one task: pressing down on them."
Multiple options beats out 1, my friend.
Alright, I'll give you that touch controls can do all of those things. But, are they conducive to gameplay - more efficient than buttons? Do they make for an overall better Zelda game; controls do aid in crafting a good game right?
