    I'm right handed and I can play with the wiimote and nunchuk in any hand... It's designed for being ambidextrous, and some games I even swap if it's easier...
    I love you, Adam.

    its not hard to at all it wasnt hard at all adapting to using an analog stickfor my GCN from using the d-pad on my GBC and GBA. and I like the DS lite as the D-pad feels more softer and not stiff. Im guessing the same thing applies to the wii-mote and nunchuck seeing as I dont have a wii at all =(
    Hey everyone it's me MRCOOLGH its been forever and a half since I came back on in fact its been at least a year and a half since I was here. Last time I visited Wiichat was 02-26-2008 and I'm gald to be back everyone!

    Use your left hand then. The pointer is more "spacially specific anyway (meaning your aimer has more information to send than the nunchuck does).

    I could use my left hand to control it but in games like Medal of Honor and Super Mario Galaxy, I need to use my left hand to control movement with the nunchuk. I have tryed using my right hand to control movement in Zelda:TP but it's even harder...
    Sounds like it's a case of you've got used to being forced to use your left hand for navigation. Try putting it in your right hand. The weaker hand should have the nunchuck.

    Is it just me or are all left-handed people permanently screwed?

    Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

    EDIT: the wii zapper would help in FPSs but not in SMG
    Nah, just do what I've said, and you should be well away. It's your prior achievements of playing computer games in the "right handed way" that's screwing you up.


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    Being left handed i had the same problem. I just put my remote down and left it for half an hour or so and without thinking just picked it up and started using it how i picked it up and now im fine with it.

    Why should this be a problem?

    If your left handed hold the wii remote in your left hand... simple

    I don't see how you can possibly complain about this.

    Just because there's fewer left handed people shouldn't mean it will be harder.

    I myself am ambidextrous so don't tell me I don't get it. I've played all my games with swapped controls.

    When I fist began using the wii. I had the same problem, as I am left handed also. Something about the controller being devided into two peices makes it weird to handle. I have gotten used to it more, but it still feels odd to me. The wii is definaly different from traditional games machines which gives it a higher learning curve, I think.

    I don't know of a way to make it easier for you, but to get used to it. It might be easier to me cuz I can use my right had to do most things also, including drawing.
