'''Waggle''' is a control scheme or game mechanic that is CoolButInefficient at best and a ScrappyMechanic, unwanted upgrade, or InterfaceScrew at worst. It is thrown into a game to capitalize on a video game console's latest features -- specifically, the interface and control schematics -- but it worsens the gaming experience because it violates the game's mood, basic ergonomics, or playability.

Whether or not something is ''waggle'' is a source of debate among gaming fans, of course, like everything else. The color of the sky, for example.

The term originated from derisive reviews of early Creator/{{Nintendo}} UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} software.
