Do You Prefer Touch or Motion Controled Games?

I like touch games better, I find accelerometer games to be mostly gimmicky.

Touch, mainly because it allows me to play in any position I like.

the question is subjective to each app.

some apps work great with touch, some work greats with accelerometer.

YES, that's also my opinion!
This is the big advantage of this piece of hardware....both is possible.
And there are great games in each controlling method.

EDIT: So there should be a 4th choice in the poll: I LOVE BOTH

It depends on the genre and how the controls are elaborated.

Generally I prefer touch controls, because they are more precise and you can use them in public without making a fool out of yourself.

Exactly. Also, when playing on crowded trains, touch is a must.

I think this is a silly question. I like the controls to make sense for the game. Dizzy Bee is awesome. A tilt controlled snake game is not. In my case I also haven't liked tilt control of racing games so far, yet the motion controls in Venger are great.
