Last generation's console games were broadly accessible to people with quite a wide range of impairments. Those hand-held controllers that didn't have to be waved, shaken, swung, wiggled or danced with -- well, they made things a whole lot easier, I must say.
You see, even if you couldn't even operate the controller properly, you could still buy any of a number of special controllers or have one made to suit you, so that you could still play the game. There are special controllers for the Wii, but that doesn't really help so much when games are written that require you to trace two pages of the Karma-Sutra in the air in the space of ten seconds or so. Adaptive controllers can only go so far in mimicking the arcs, sweeps and jabs that the game expects from an able-bodied person with a Wiimote.
