"From the moment I picked up my first Wii remote, I have not been impressed with motion control in gaming." - Trevor H. of Leviathyn.com
I actually enjoyed the motion gaming back in 2006-07 but that's it. Wii still had some gemsbut most of those game didn't need motion controls at all. I bought a Wii at launch, it was fun playing Wii tennis and boxing. I think motion gaming has it's place, but it shouldn't be a standard for gaming.
Motion gaming will be here for ever now. So will standard controlls. But if people think motion gaming is going to be all of a sudden dropped because it doesn't suit their uber hardcore tast then they're delusional. It's almost 100% certain the PS4 and 720 will have some sort of Motion based peripheral. And the Wiiu has 9 axis , Geomagnetic sensor in gamepad and supports Wii remote and motion plus.
I can ignore this transgression when spoken but when it's in a headline I cannot ignore it... The expression is "Couldn't care less" by saying "Could" the implication is that you care *some* - which you don't. If you think I'm being picky, I couldn't care less :) As for motion controls, they have their place (such as in sports games) but I like to have the choice. Nintendo should have shipped a normal controller along with the fancy-pants ones of the Wii and Wii U. Fragmentation of controllers just makes developing games with decent control schemes a pain in the ass.
For your comment in relation to the title, thank you! It drives me mad :/
Just don't get me started on people using the word "addicting" instead of "addictive" - I fully advocate the use of firing squads as a deterrent ;)
"I Could Care Less About Motion Control Gaming"... yet the author is MAKING AN ARTICLE about it. Go figure.
You have a point. Taken literally, the title implies that he does care... and he cares enough to write an article ;)
Because he wants the resources and effort being wasted on them to stop?
I Could Care Less About Motion Control Gaming" Same here :!
I should write an article concerning my love of pooping. Since everyone cares, right?
Titles wrong "I could care less" implies that you do care.
Honestly, I had some fun piledriving people with the Wii-Mote on No More Heroes.
I can fix that. After all, I do play a doctor on TV.
I used the DS3 instead of Move for No More Heroes. The motion controls didn't add anything worthwhile.
All I can say is that it's nice having the option of varied control methods as long as they are well implemented.
Motion control is nicer in the form of optional functionality. Like the motion controls in some of the latest dedicated portables; gyro sensors and accelerometers are a butter alternative IMO. However things like the Wii remote and the Move are viable as optional controllers. For example, I love playing Resident Evil 4 with those kinds of controls but I would never play something like Smash Bros. or Sly Cooper with them.
I like it. I think it should be optional but I will more than likely always choose the Motion controls. I realize that they have their drawbacks but so do traditional controller- it's just that we are way more efficient with them and can work around them to the point that they don't matter much. Most reviews of the MP 1 and 2 Wii up-grades reveal that the motion controls made the games easier. SS, RS2, WiiSports - all show that the new way can be fun and just as effective. I love Skyward Swod because it added a new level to the swordsmanship of Zelda. >I once thought the bad swings were the controllers fault until I got to the "Lightening Challenge" and saw how much better I had gotten at the game than before.< But I think we still need the option, I just don't wan't to go all the way back. > I like putting spin on rolling bombs too, much to go back.<
