    My wife, myself and 4 other of our Wii playing friend are left handed. I recently purchased "M&S Olympics" and Midway's "Game Party". Both games are configured for right handed players only. This is very frustrating. I cannot even use the left hand on my Mii.

    This issue will surely detour me from purchasing titles in the future. Has anyone else had this problem?

    What did you do when you played games on a GameCube? I'm right handed and can't imagine if the controls were reversed. The Wii's Remote seems much more compatible to lefties.

    Why not just put the Wii-mote in your left-hand and the nun-chuck in your right? Don't other Wii games do right-handed settings, if so, how do you play them?

    I not talking about the actual controllers. I am talking about the movements in the game. For example. In table tennis in the Olympics the character holds the controller in his/her right hand. A normal right handed swing in the game is a left back handed swing for me.

    I know where you are coming from on this as I'm like you left handed.
    they did it in sport or play can't remember which.
    down to the creator of the games to think of this.
    Can't be that hard to do.:yesnod:

    Lefties are supposed to be smarter than righties. I would think allot of lefties are employed at Nintendo. :lol:

    1. like 90% of the population is right handed. If you were some big CEO, who would you want to market to if you had to choose a hand.
    2. Just get used to it.

    Meh, not that I have to deal with it (i'm a righty) it's like playing the guitar, you use your left hand (for rightys) more than your right. Eventually you get used to it.
