In what way can Kinect be used for gaming?

#1AftCometPosted 1/25/2014 7:36:17 PM
Every single developer of every game in production right now has come to you and asked you how you would like to see Kinect implemented to improve your gameplay experience.

What are some ways you'd like to see that couldn't be done with traditional buttons and/or a plug in microphone.

A lot of people say Kinect is useful for voice control, but that can easily be done implemented with a $2 mic.

I still have no new sakura trick gifs to spam.
I like the ability that the Kinect is optional
It makes NBA 2k playable

It works great in sports games like NBA2K where you can yell out things like Pick and Roll or Post Up while being able to do other functions at the same time using the regular controls. Its also great in Dead Rising 3 where you can issue a command to the AI while still focusing on combat.

Pretty much any situation like that is where I consider it useful. Outside of that, I would prefer to stick with the controller mostly. I think its more about adding a little bit more immersion and interactivity, but most of the game should be played using physical controls.

I see. That's pretty cool but that can be done with a regular microphone. You don't need Kinect for that kind of functionality. Kinect is mainly for motion control.

Yeah if it were just a regular microphone that would be fine too. Kinect is one of those things where its just neat to use it, but you could live without it.

Developers would have to make more creative, innovative, and intuitive games to use the Kinect's full potential. As of right now, the generic FPS / Sports / 360 port titles have no way to use the Kinect in ways that add to the experience, outside of voice commands.

They definitely need to get creative. But even the small things could go a long way.

Like in a COD/BF/any type of war campaign, as you character is exiting a helicopter after a successful mission, you could throw a high five to have your character high five the teammates waiting on the ground.

Stupid, but things like that could help improve immersion.

Looks like there's not a lot of uses for Kinect...
