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.

  • There really is no excuse for not having left handed options for players. Devs should always have a left handed binding preset under controller configs imo. I am not left handed but have a good friend who has to deal with the issue. As ZeusCell mentioned that's why pc gaming is so great. The variety  of options that are available are so much more than console platforms. Where is Ned Flander's Leftorium when we need it? Lol. I am surprised that there aren't left handed controllers being made and advertised on mainstram platforms. Surely there are still  enough lefthanded players to warrant it even if they are a minority.
