Evolution of Controllers
I dont know what people are talking about when they say xbox controllers break easily. I've still got all the 360 controllers I've ever bought and theyre all in good working condition. Except for the halo 3 edition controller, its analog is a little wobbly, but otherwise it's good.
All of my Xbone controllers are still in perfect condition and I've had them for a few years now and I play at least 4 times a week, on PC and console.
Fuck I still have perfectly functioning N64 controllers. What do other people do to their controllers?
>I dont know what people are talking about when they say xbox controllers break easily
I probably touched these controllers maybe a total of 20 times. I pretty much exclusively used 1 and those 2 were barely touched. They still broke and will not hold any charge. They aren't third-party brands either. They're MS controllers that came with the 360 out of the box. Plus, the analog getting wobbly is a common problem with 360 controllers. Each controller I have has that and it makes my character walk slowly if I tap the analog stick in the wrong direction. I treat my electronics good. I don't throw them around and I don't hit them on anything. They still broke.
You're controllers were clearly made from the backbones of social justice warriors.
They may as well have been.

One of the best scenes.
I paid attention to all of that. You seem to forget at the time zuko returned, Iroh got thrown in the slammer. There's reason to believe if Iroh wasn't so against Zuko killing the avatar(something else never truly TRULY explained), the boy would've been fine.
Sure he got used to living like some commoner, but of course that doesn't amount to being a literal prince, a powerful bender, and having the respect of your dad. Before he was exiled he never expressed wanting "friends" or caring about other nations.
When he joined aang he hadn't said that's what he wanted either. he still didn't receive anything he was looking for, he just did what he felt was "the right thing" and got his uncle back. Guilt looms regardless to if you have what you want. Whatever friendship he got was a bonus.
Zuko didn't gain anything of value to himself besides Iroh. He relieved himself of guilt from his uncle getting jailed and being disappointed in him. By the end his bending is still as weak as it ever was, he had no family at all, and he hadn't helped the fire nation at all. He became everyone's hero but as far as himself, he settled to be just another guy
How could I forget Iroh being put in prison? It's a huge part of S3.
>There's reason to believe if Iroh wasn't so against Zuko killing the avatar(something else never truly TRULY explained), the boy would've been fine.
Not really. Considering he was fairly supportive of his hunt for the Avatar for all those years. He only tried changing his mind AFTER they were exiled and that's when Zuko started to be happier and better. Let's pretend that Iroh was 100% supportive right up until the end. What would happen to Zuko then? His father would still hate him and he would still be miserable. Nothing would have changed except Zuko wouldn't know how to be happy. The Firelord doesn't give a shit about Zuko and never has. Zuko wanted him to and that's pretty much all he wanted. Him killing/capturing the Avatar would not have made him love him. He merely tolerated him for appearance sake when he supposedly killed the Avatar.
>Sure he got used to living like some commoner, but of course that doesn't amount to being a literal prince, a powerful bender, and having the respect of your dad. Before he was exiled he never expressed wanting "friends" or caring about other nations.
The whole point of those episodes as a commoner was showing him that he didn't need the thing he thought he wanted. How do you not see this? It's basic story telling that children understood. We only saw glimpses of his youth so we can't accurately say what he did and didn't want as a kid and you seem to be forgetting the scene which got him burned. He spoke out against sending troops to their death because he was genuinely a good person as a kid. His dad didn't like it so he burned his face. He also showed a lot of sadness over his cousin's death and showed a lot of empathy towards his uncle for his loss. For nearly 2 seasons he doggedly pursued the Avatar in an attempt to gain back his honor. It wasn't until he hit rock bottom did he realize he wanted friends and peace and that's when he was happy. You talk about how he would have been happy if he captured the Avatar and went back, but we clearly saw that in S3 when he was a "hero" for having killed him. He was not happy at all because it wasn't what he wanted. He stated this multiple times through words and actions. You ignoring it and pretending that's what he really wanted is daft.
> he still didn't receive anything he was looking for, he just did what he felt was "the right thing" and got his uncle back. Guilt looms regardless to if you have what you want. Whatever friendship he got was a bonus.
He wanted to make things right, got friends, made peace, and got his Uncle back(whom he really wanted his approval of). Just because a character doesn't spell out what they want doesn't mean they don't want it, but that's actually what you're trying to argue. It's good writing to have conflicted characters and he is one of the best I've ever seen. That's the whole point of his character arc. He pursues a goal for years thinking it's what he wants, and then realizes that it really wasn't and then goes on to redeem himself. He becomes happy in the end because of his choices. Are you saying he would have been happier if he just killed Aang? We've seen what that life would be like and he wasn't happy.
Bro I'm not the one ignoring the material. I know the writers were going for all that stuff you're talking. But looking in detail, based on what's shown of Zuko, that's not how it is.
You keep saying "he wanted friends" and all that but there's no proof. Accepting something that you're ok with doesn't mean it's something you wanted. It doesn't mean it's something of high importance to you. guy a could give guy b a nice pair of sneakers and guy b could very well like em. Has nothing to do with the fact that guy b has no car.
Zuko's a compassionate kid yeah. Towards his family and the fire nation. That's got nothing to do with outsiders. You're applying values of people in this world to a boy in a completely fictional world.
Zuko was unhappy when he got home for obvious reasons. Iroh, the man by his side from the start, was behind bars. He was being praised for doing something he didn't actually do. Don't forget how he could tell azula was plotting the whole time. Living with such a dark cloud over his head would be impossible.
My point is, he never "lost his way" because "his way" was never along side aang in the first place. What the boy wanted could've been attained but it was pushed aside by monsters like azula and whatever convinced iroh to stop Zuko from killing aang when he could've
>By the end his bending is still as weak as it ever was, he had no family at all, and he hadn't helped the fire nation at all
He actually became better at fire bending having learned a superior and stronger form of fire bending. If you think family is important just because they're blood then you have never had shitty siblings. He hated his father and sister, but tried to help his sister as she was truly crazy and he thought he could help her rehabilitate. Didn't do anything for the Fire Nation? He ended the war that killed thousands of them and stopped all the oppression from his father's rule. We saw how a lot of them didn't like the war. Remember the Painted Lady episode? That whole village was hurting because of the war and they were IN the Fire Nation. The Nation got better when he became Fire Lord. Hell, the whole world got better.
I can't even take you seriously. I'm done replying to you because you can't even acknowledge the simple facts. Children have a better understanding of his character than you do.
