The implementation of motion controls into console video games meant that the players were able to experience gaming on a completely new level. By using the motion sensors, the players could engage their entire body and “feel” the game rather than simply playing it and witnessing the action. With the addition of motion controls, games became more indulging and more interesting – with new layers of gameplay and the superior accuracy of the controls, players had a completely new level of gaming at their disposal. While there is a possibility of buying the video game motion sensors and cameras separately, there is a great number of consoles that have the exact same technology built into them. Some of them are Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Switch and PS3. Let’s take a look at some of the best motion-sensor games available for these consoles.
