Kinect – My thoughts

Over the past few days, I have been entertaining myself with Kinect – the “controller-free gaming and entertainment experience” from Microsoft. Whilst I’ve only been able to play Kinect Adventures and Kinect Joy Ride, I feel as if the full potential of the hardware won’t be met for a good few years.

Having rearranged the room to allow space to play Kinect, I simply feel as if I’m moving my arms and my body to a television screen and a sensor. It doesn’t feel as if I’m actually inside the game, something which is an important feature in video games.

Playing the games I have, it’s hard to see the likes of a first-person-shooter or a more hardcore Kinect game release. Nevertheless, I still believe that we will see these types of games in the next few years. Considering I enjoy a number of games within the casual games market, I feel as if I’ll be able to use Kinect on a regular basis.

I intend to purchase a few more Kinect games (such as Dance Central) over the next few weeks but, for now, a few casual plays on Kinect Adventures will keep me occupied.
