Tack and field.

Like most people, I don't make sweeping generalisations. It's probably fair to say, however, that no one wants to be treated like a human d-pad.

If Kinect makes you the controller, then MotionSports makes you a NES pad. Even worse, the game's archaic design only reinforces that notion.

It looked like they were playing American football, soccer and some kind of winter sports.
