Seeing as we're talking FPSs, take Red Steel on the Wii. To push open a door, you *push* the nunchuk. To point your weapon, you *point* the remote. To pull the trigger, you *pull the trigger* on the remote.
That's got to be a better, more realistic control method than the more abstract "two analogue sticks and buttons" scheme on PS2/3 and Xboxes.
