A look at motion based arcade games

June 11, 2007

It’s all about motion these days. While the console industry is lead in this regard by the Wii, arcades have been at motion-based gaming for quite a while now and it’s not “all about the waggle” either.

Kevin Williams of the Stringer Report has written an article on motion based arcade games, such as Cycraft, Outrun SPX 2, Wasteland Racers 2071 and others. It’s a good look at one of the things that the arcade can always do that the game console can’t. This is part I of II, so keep an eye out for more talk about motion-based coin-op games.
