Why Motion Controls Are Useless

in

Now that we have had some time to fully digest Microsoft and Sony’s “future of fun” motion controllers (Project Natal and Move, respectively) I thought it would be a good time to dissect them a little before we get a larger picture of them at E3.  As I stated in an earlier blog post, I am not a fan of motion controls; never have been, and from what I’ve seen from these two new controllers, I wont be any time soon.

Last week, I had the bittersweet experience of having the final spring break of my college career.  Admittedly, most of it was spent playing Final Fantasy XIII without stopping so I could get the review up for you fine folks as quickly as possible.  However, on Saturday, some friends and I decided to take a trip to Atlantic City.  For the most part, it was an awesome time.

My gaming career began at the age of four, when my parents purchased for me a Sega Genesis.  Included were two controllers, the bundled Sonic the Hedgehog, and a copy of Evander Holyfield’s “Real Deal” Boxing (my father is a boxing nut).  For the longest time, all I knew were those two games, and I’m glad that was the case as each game offered an important lesson.
