Edmund McMillen, one of the developers behind the critically acclaimed Super Meat Boy, believes that there are only two good motion controlled games on the market. McMillen has apparently played the majority of games for Wii but is only really convinced by two of them; Wii Sports and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
“In the past so many years we’ve had so many different ways to control games. The Wii came and went and it had the motion-sensing thing. The only game that was really good was the game that was made by Nintendo for the system, that came with the system – Wii Sports,” said McMillen.
“Any game after that, and please anybody chime in and tell me the games that I’m missing here, because I’ve played a lot of Wii games and there’s not one Wii game other than Wii Sports that actually uses these controls and makes the game fun because of it. And I assume that the next Zelda is going to be good. Those are going to be the two games for the system that are really spectacular and really use the controller in a way that’s fulfilling,” he continued.
“When it comes down to it, if Nintendo is the only one that is able to come up with awesome ideas for the peripheral, then I really doubt anyone else is going to.”
