In console games where it says this, does it really help to tap it super fast or is it just a placebo and after a certain consistent but maybe not omg i'm breaking my controller to beat this guy speed it just all works the same? I wonder this cause it does feel like i'm smashing that x button hard enough something's surely gunna break.

depends what console really, super old arcade games probably not but its more likely with a new ps3/xbox360 setup
it just depends how much input they can handle and how quickly

Or rather how quickly the input is actually used by the game logic. Smashing (X) twice as fast as the character is programmed to hit is kinda redundant.

yeh it only came up because I'm playing resident evil 5 and it's got some bits where you smash a button and I was just wondering if I hit it slowly would it not let me pass that particular scene or would I die? I was playing prince of persia and found out that at the end of every level where you had to tap x to do something if you just hit it pretty slowly like once a second even that was enough to pass...got my thinking how I broke so many controllers as a kid mashing them, was it all for nothing?
