Who else hates motion gaming?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

In my opinion motion(PS move,Kinect,Wii, etc.) is a really stupid idea and it sucks. Why? Because when I game I want to relax sit on my chair perhpas eat something,drink something and not jump around as if I had an epileptic seizure. I really think the only point of motion gaming is for Microsoft,Sony,Nintendo  to show the capabilites of how far gaming can go. Whether it's now or in the future I just think motion gaming is silly and ridiculous. What is your view on this?

Until motion gaming is on par with the movie Gamer, I won't be interested. It'll show the people who are truly skilled because they'll have to be physically fit to play the game and excel at it.

Specifically in reference to your words on the Wii controllers and Sony's copy of the Wii controllers:

That one should need massive erratic movement in order to operate a Wii is a very common misconception. Anyone who has actually played a Wii can tell you that you need only apply some flicks of the wrist and similar small movements that don't require any effort for it to work. It's quite intuitive and easy if the game developers knew the hardware they were working with.

 

As for my take on motion gaming, I like the Wii, Sony's copycat controllers work fine enough though there is a lack of good games to utilize them and the original Kinect is a gimmick out and out. As for the new Kinect, I'll probably never know because I have no intention of buying the new Xbox. Overall, if done right it can be a great thing and I don't see why one should be so negative about the concept. That's just closing off avenues of experience that might provide with a good time and I don't see any reason for that.

Well yea someone might have a good time with that but I don't have a good time when I game and have to move most of my body parts.

I love virtual reality, if I had the money, I'd buy an Oculus Rift and a Virtuix Omni right away. I love the kinect as well. Before you start to hate, not really for the gaming. The technology is nice and it has already been used by a lot of scientists (with custom firmwares etc). I recently read an article about scientists setting up a kinect to detect the movement of a glacier. Science bitch ;D

When the Wii was first announced, it sounded really fun to me and I was looking forward to playing Zelda, slashing my sword around, using it to aim the bow etc.  But, shortly after getting my Wii, I just wished I would have bought Twilight Princess for the Gamecube.  Any game I play with motion is fun at first, but then after an hour I get bored of the game and it just feels gimmicky.  I haven't touched a motion sensor game since. The whole time I am playing the game I am just saying to myself, "I wish I was using s controller right now."

Yeah personally I never thought that motion gaming would really pick off anyways. I much prefer just playing a game with a kb + m or controller set up.


Is this the real life? Or is this just fantasy?
