    I had to look that up in Wikipedia. I'm not much of a gamer: I'm usually "medicated" and my hand/eye coordination really takes a hit. It bores me to spend hours trying to get past Level One.

    But, I don't think such games are as high on hand/eye coordination, but interacting powers and disabilities coordination. They're more thinkem than racehorse.
