Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Best gyro aiming on Switch

The Gyro aiming made the Resident Evil games much more playable and enjoyable. It makes the decision to leave them out of RE4 even more inexplicable.

Ever since Star Fox's return was ruined by them focusing on gyro controls rather than actual good gameplay, a decent story, and a modernly long campaign in the form of Star Fox Zero, I've cringed at seeing the word gyro. Still cringe.

Gyro was the least of that game's problems.

Anyways, I'd say Splatoon 2 off the top of my head. Inconceivable to play it with analog aiming.

Their focus on gyro, rather than other features, is what caused the other problems, is what I'm saying. 



Splatoon 2. DOOM is a close second

Fair enough, but even then I'd say the dual-screen thing was way worse.

For me, the best I've played so far are Monster Hunter Rise, Sniper Elite 4, Warframe, and Splatoon 2. All felt smooth and intuitive and made aiming a breeze.

I'm with mzuzek, I felt the real problem was the dual screen gimmick. If you got rid of the gyro or made it optional it would still be a bad game.

There's no reason you can't have gyro controls in a good game; see MH Rise or Splatoon 2 or Doom 2016/Eternal.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
