Why were joystick octagons discontinued?
#1
In the old days, Nintendo had octagons around the joysticks on the controllers. I think this was a really smart design because you could easily tell when you were facing an exact direction. They did this on the Nintendo 64 controller, GameCube controller, the Wii Nunchuck and other Wii accessories.

However, they decided to ditch this design and now, the new controllers only have circles around the joysticks. Why did they choose to do this? Was there something wrong with the octagonal design? I thought it was pretty practical. What would you prefer?

Side-note: The joycons have somewhat of an octagonal design, though it is not visible. If you rotate the stick, you can feel some snap points along the way. I predict this is gonna be very useful for games like Smash Bros in the future.
