The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.

 

Ok... so Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has been out for a full month or more.  My question is which do gamers / game makers prefer. Link's Motion Controls in Skyward Sword, or his conventional control in Windwaker / Twilight Princess (although Twilight Princess did introduce some limited motion on the Wii.)

Was it a step forward, or does it still need proving? I think this is a big deal considering design in the future of games that involve action (and RPGs). Also it might a sticking point in the fact that Nintendo didn't give players a choice this time around.

So lets hear it - voice your opinions, fact, love, and fustrations about which is better.
