Soon to be released are the Sony Playstation Move and the Xbox 360 Kinect as well as a the Nintendo 3Ds and a new Zelda so the question is what are you going to be playing? At the time of writing I was looking at the new Zelda game "Zelda Skyward Sword" which looks to be truley interactive and a very compelling game to be certain.

I've been playing RPG and action RPG type games since I was a kid and FPS shooters are just a turn off for me so I guess that would put them in the classification of "Games I hate, but everyone else seems to love". (CulturePS3,SonyWiiZelda)

Which can arguably be shown to be a good thing, despite the seemingly common belief that desensitization is bad, to the contrary it could be good." (Casual gamesCulture)
