Five of My Favorite Games I’ll Feel Stupid Playing with Kinect

As I wrote about yesterday, Microsoft is pouring $500 million into the launch of Kinect, trying to brute force the motion-control peripheral into our hearts and minds of the video gaming public as the next evolution of console gaming.

Well I don’t buy it. Yes, the tech is pretty cool, and I will be pumped the day it’s standard procedure to flip through menus using only my hands, but for actual games? This system is more or less useless for someone like me. Out of the 17 launch titles, 9 are fitness/sports/dance related, while most of the others are family friendly party games. So how is this system ever going to adapt to REAL games, the games I want to play?

I don’t think it can, and that’s why I staged this little photoshoot in my living room to demonstrate just how silly I’m going to feel playing some of my favorite titles if they’re adapted for Kinect. Check it out below:
