Left Handed Players and Motion Controls

Hi there, I am a left-handed player and felt like talking about how alienating motion controls can be and see if anyone else here feels my pain.

I feel like this is an issue that doesn't get brought up much. The worst I experienced was No More Heroes on the Wii. You had to be holding the remote in your right hand to play that game because there was no left-handed option for the game. As a person who uses my left hand to hold the remote, it was unplayable. I even dislike the fact they took left-handed Link away from us just for motion controls. They didn't even make him left-handed again TotK where there aren't even swinging motion controls.

I personally find it frustrating and was wanting to see how others felt.

  • Leftie here as well. I agree it is difficult.. but then even with left handed options I feel like it's awkward to learn. At least that's how I feel abut the PC stuff, maybe I just got turned off because it seemed harder to use for me. But for handhelds this would be nice, I can use my right, but I definetely don't have the same feeling of control. It is interesting that with such a large number of us, that these consols aren't more leftie friendly
