comment The disappearance of the joystick
@badp I would say the changes in gaming interface devices are as related to gaming as the cycling out of PS/2 ports in favor of USB mice in modern machines is related to programming.

comment The disappearance of the joystick
Even if gamers might have caused the change, it was the developer's decision to carry it out. And Juan covers the point about your secondary question, we're not really designed for opinion questions. Rather, we're a system for questions that can be solved.

comment The disappearance of the joystick
As far as "why did it phase out", that is not really something we are suited to addressing here. The choice to migrate from full-stick joysticks was one made by the game companies, and while we gamers can provide educated and logical conjectures as to the reasoning, only the developers have the real answer. You might consider asking on the Game Dev SE for what some actual game developers think about it.

comment Dwarf Fortress Stone Colors in Phoebus' Graphic Set
Alright, seeing Quantumgeek's edit, I'm starting to understand that this is about what a "graphics set" does. This probably all spiralled into confusion because the comment "@antony.trupe It depends on what tile set you're using." implies that applying a tile set will actually change the colors of stones by itself.

comment Dwarf Fortress Stone Colors in Phoebus' Graphic Set
@tzenes I am actually going to side with antony here, because I don't see this as a question about developing or configuring mods. It looks to me as asking what the default settings for a specific mod are, which to me classifies as "things that happen during play [in a legal mod]". I would consider it a valid question on this site, even if it might be more easily addressed on the source of the mod (I expect people actually include documentation with these things).

...I was afraid that you meant that one... If you can wait until the weekend, I'll setup the 360 and I'll have another go, see how it is I managed past it.

comment Is there any rhyme or reason to where or when Set Items drop in Diablo 2?
Can't argue there - I'm still hunting for the Swordback Hold, just so I can have it.

comment Is there any rhyme or reason to where or when Set Items drop in Diablo 2?
This might be nitpicking, but while there is no bias which makes set items relatively more or less likely to be dropped, there is one Set that can only be dropped in one area - the Cow King's Leathers!

comment What is the gravity model in Source engine games?
I would call this on-topic - it only sounds off-topic because you are approaching it from an analytical perspective that most gamers don't. Many of us prefer to get a feel for these things and use a combination of eyeballing and trial-and-error rather than figure out the mechanics like this. But the ultimate goal is the same.

comment How do I easily level up characters In Final Fantasy VII?
@dag Yes, you can exit the final dungeon after entering. If I'm not mistaken, it's actually necessary, anyway, for getting some items.

comment Why did many commodore 64 games feature different music than their original Arcade or other computers version?
This isn't a question we can cover. We can always assume things regarding technical limitations or licensing, but ultimately any decisions regarding these things were made according to the developers of the games. We can only provide conjecture as to the motivations behind any implementation of game features.
