FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Must Wii games use sensing?
Posted on Saturday, February 24 2007 @ 05:37:09 Eastern

No, a Wii game should not use motion sensitivity by default; however, at the end of the day, only those games that utilize the Wii-mote in a sensical and thorough way will be marked as the best games on the console. Developers have to decide whether the sensing capabilities of the Wii-mote system would be good design, elevating what the game can be in a well-executed manner. Otherwise, it falls to being a gimmick and dumbs down the novel visual interface that the Wii exemplifies. Though I think that the Wii has a need for and has enough room for games that do not use Wii-sensing, the initial concept for any Wii game should at least explore it and ask whether the game ultimately complements the console. Why create a game for the Wii if there isn't even a thought about Wii sensing?
