If We Only Knew Back Then…

Motion controls sounded great back in the day.

There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.

This video made me laugh a bit harder than it should have because I definitely remember thinking about the future of gaming when I was a kid.  I thought it would be real cool one day to be able to control games with motions instead of just the buttons.  Back then I really didn’t think about the mechanics of game controls, and now we see how motion controls really limit game play.  The future always seems so bright; until you get there.
