When you have more time to talk about games, than actually play them.
Taking remote control of devices can be a lot of fun in games. It’s basically the whole purpose of games, as you are taking control of a software created character or machine. Your key presses or button presses control what they do on screen. It can give you a great sense of power.
Remote control of drones has become a revolving theme in recent video games. Those drones range from quadcopters, predator, nano and more. Quadcopter drones allow characters to recon areas from the sky, while spider drones and radio controller cars allow them to get the ground view.
Hacking games like Watch Dogs, or Cyberpunk 2077, allow you to take remote control of a wide variety of devices and even people. The wide variety includes things like camera systems, turrets, speakers, displays and so much more. You are forced to use a combination of real world access and use for drones to solve complex puzzles that would be impossible without the help of a drone.
Even games like Call of Duty will use remote control cars for recon or as guided bombs. Some missions even have you take control of specialized drones. It’s almost a requirement for any near future game. That fun, but scary feeling you get controlling a robot to track down and kill enemy combatants.
The most genius use of the technology is for the game Mario Kart Live Home Circuit. You take remote control of a car, a Mario or Luigi Kart. The car has a camera on it that the game uses to record the track ahead of it in your living room and super imposes game objects when it shows you the screen on the switch.
