Simply put: the Kinect is an outstanding achievement in both gaming and media navigation. You are the controller both in voice and motion. While I can't say there's a wealth of amazing games that adopt the Kinect's hardware, there are some out there that are awesome, and one can only imagine the potential this unit has as developers learn how to take advantage of all it has to offer. Dance Central 2 is infectiously fun and active, while games like Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Skyrim, and Mass Effect 3 all give you a little more immersion and connectivity with the world you're digitally entering every time you load up the game. I certainly hope there's some killer titles coming for this device. But even on its own with just a few good games, video chat, and voice/motion navigation of your whole console, it's worth the investment.
