as time went on mos people saw it for what it was...deeply flawed tech that only really worked well in a few genres
I wouldn't even say it "really worked well" in anything. It was passable is some occasions, but that's as far as it ever went. The Wiimote single handedly turned gimmick into a bad word. That takes a lot.
honestly i was just trying to be nice and less cynical. They took that concept and half assed it from the jump and no i dont suscribe to the "whole they were trying to make it cheap, thats why it wasnt that accurate" Do something right or dont do it at all or at least try to get it right.
