I have come to a conclusion: I don't really like games with analog controls.
I mean, I may still enjoy them to some degree, but they'll never be my favorites. Case in point, FPSs. I'm still getting my ass handled by Clanlord in UT2K4, and haven't been able to finish the game due to that. I also get beaten like crap in any online FPS, I was never really good in any racing game and I've never seen much point in flight simulators.
I still like 3D platformers such as Mario 64 and Banjo & Kazooie, but they aren't really difficult.
On the other hand, I love digital-controlled games. I've always been a fan of the Megaman series, I used to speedrun 100% of Super Mario World getting all of the special items such as the 3-life moons on the actual console, I've beaten Contra, Super C and Contra III to death, and I don't consider myself a pro but I can beat almost every one of my friends in games like Street Fighter Alpha 3, Mortal Kombat II and a couple KOFs, and I also used to be rather good in Killer Instinct and KIG.
Maybe that's why I can't get too much into gaming nowadays. I have more fun with a difficult game feturing digital gameplay than with a difficult game featuring analog gameplay.
On the other hand, I really enjoy easy games with analog gameplay, such as Mario Kart 64.
