Kinect games that can be played sitting

im going to get kinect in few days, but i dont have too much space in the room. after christmas holiday im going to buy a new bed that can be "closed" during the day, so i can play all games. but for now which are games that can be played only with arms?

Apart from navigating through the menus and such, watching videos and using the video chat function I don't think so?

All of the games involve some type of motion from standing up, obviously the dancing games but also Kinectimals and Kinect Adventures etc. I don't know whether any form of racing games would need you to stand up or not as I don't have kinect yet, maybe? Kinect was made with standing and moving around in mind

Joy Ride is the only game out that can be played sitting I think.

Its optional, only required if you want the 100% achievement completion

Ive Got Kinect Joyride, and you can do it sat down just not the stunts quite aswell, but games such as kinect adventures and kinect sports im afraid will be impossible mate.

the only kinect game you can play sitting down is joy ride however i found it really doesn't work that well sat down so wouldn't recommend that either

Only Harry Potter really since in Kinect mode you move automatically much like a on a rail shooter like the old time crisis games. No legs required just hand gestures for the spells. The rest of the games though require your whole body and plenty of room, oh maybe table tennis on kinect sports because you can probably reach each shot by leaning rather than moving

It would be nice if you could navigate the Kinect Sports menu sitting down.. It's just a pain having to stand up just to select a game.

I'm hoping that future games will use both the controller and sensor and so are best played sitting down but as of right now no games are perfect for standing...
Joy Rid is your best bet but you won't get the full experience from it
