    Well, the lack of freedom of choice in how to interact with the world specifically bothers me.

    Even when the controls themselves become comfortable, I still wonder how the game would have played if I could have messed with the control scheme.

    At least, I used to wonder until I found something that let me remap keyboard keys and mouse input to a controller in the shape of my favorite gamepad (the playstation gamepad, for anyone curious).

    Mediocre is a polite way of putting it.

    What do you do when Wii bowling isn't fun anymore? My Wii turned into a Netflix player until I got a Roku.
    Gaming is a lazy, sit on the couch hobby. I play Dance Central sometimes but in general I just want to sit down, relax, and enjoy what I am playing, not flail my arms around and what not.
    Yet there is so much worry about "child hood obesity!" Well when I was a kid if my parents thought I was sitting on my ass too long they tossed me out the door and I played some basketball, tag, or whatever. My meals did not come floating in ranch dressing with a 2 liter of Mountain Dew to drink. Trying to put some mild exercise into gaming is not the answer.

    When a proper game (by proper game I don't mean Let's Dance 9) implements motion control well into the gameplay, more people will be on board.

    Untill that happens it will be rightly viewed as a gimmick used to try and get people not interested in video games on board.

    Lol, do you have any idea how much money Nintendo made with this kind of stuff ?

    They know where the money is, don't worry. But yeah, let's make games for lazy nerds, now that's how we are going to be successful !!

    Because they sold a billion wiis and a billion stupid accesaries for the wii and i think sold the most consoles in the last cycle.
    Nintendos problem with wii u was they launched a system that has the same graphical quality of a system that came out years ago, when the two companies who made the systems are preparing new ones. And it's gimmick is the controller has a screen.
    Whoopdi doo.
