Valve: "Sh*tty waggle games? Not on my watch we won't!"

You've probably had lurid daydreams about swinging your arm in an arc, pretending to hold a chainsaw, while playing Left 4 Dead 1 / 2. This is the reason why I always avoid sitting anywhere near you on public transport.

Hey ho, at least Valve won't support your unhealthy urges. Speaking at DICE, they've made it abundantly clear that Valve won't get into the "sh*tty waggle game" pissing contest that everyone seems to be jumping into left, right and centre. Microsoft's Project Natal and Sony's ARC (or whatever the hell they're going to call the thing) won't be getting Valve's backing - at least not for the sort of games you commonly associate with motion control systems. Shit ones.

Left 4 Dead lead Chuck Faliszek put out a heartfelt plea to other developers to follow suit too. "Don't just make sh*tty games I wouldn't want to play if I had to use a joystick" he cried.

Alas, the cry will fall on deaf ears. There's gold in them thar waggle games, and it's there for the grabbing.
