What do you call the 3DS Circle Pad?

Post by Winters Thief Zero on Sat Dec 28, 2013 4:15 pm

I was wondering if anyone actually called the 3DS Circle Pad it's real name. What do you call it?

Personally I call it the Slide Pad, it's original name before the 3DS released. I've called it that forever, so I wouldn't really be able to switch to saying Circle Pad now. I've heard some people call it a control nub or stick, which it really isn't, but it made me wonder what everyone else calls it.

I actually never knew that the real name is the Circle Pad- I used to call it the Control Pad.

Circle Pad is actually what I call it actually.
(Because it's shaped like a circle. XD)

I also call it the circle pad. Some people call it an analog stick though.

I just either say slide pad or control stick, I never take the time and say, oh use the 3DS circle pad to move.
