it looks really clunky and unresponsive to play that particular game, like you don't know how to hold it...

I agree. In the video it gets put down on the table at one point. Until they start making games and control schemes specifically for it, some games will be clunky.

One area I think the iPad could really do well in is multi-player gaming. And I don't necessarily mean over wifi, I mean multiple players on one device. Think about how well it could do something traditional, like a chess board or table hockey type game. Those are some of the first thoughts I had when I tried to consider the gaming implications of the iPad.

Yeah, it'll be interesting to see if any developers can come up with a workable control scheme for FPS gaming. Dual stick might work...
