Well, no not really, but respect is due. The simplification argument is not lost on me. Video game user interfaces / controls used to be a thing of beauty. Unfortunately many studios seem to be of the opinion that battling the UI is the game (I'm looking at you Konami, and don't sit there looking smug Nintendo, your current controller has caused me more physical pain than is strictly necessary).
