Morning Hangover: Dumb Gaming Gimmicks


Posted March 11, 2011 - By Stephen Johnson

Wii Vitality Sensor

Recognize the device above? It's a picture of Nintendo's "Vitality Sensor" for the Wii. It was announced at E3 2009, and never released. It measures your pulse rate and has, literally, no discernible usefulness as a gaming peripheral, but I want one. Badly. 

I love incredibly stupid, useless gaming crap more than you can imagine. I'll try out any motion control game. I'll put quarters into any arcade game as long as there's a huge metal paddle to control my kayak or a steel arm to arm wrestle against. My closets are packed with dumb plastic music instruments, add-ons to my Wii-mote and other awesomely useless game-junk. In 20 years, my kid is going to be psyched... imagine you had every weird piece of gaming detritus ever put out by Nintendo during it's early 90s, pre N64 incarnation! Cool, right?

What about you guys? Do you like dumb gaming garbage or not?
