'Exergames' Not Perfect, But Can Lead To More Exercise

Well they won't.
Active video games, also known as "exergames," are not the perfect solution to the nation's sedentary ways, but they can play a role in getting some people to be more active.

Michigan State University's Wei Peng reviewed published research of studies of these games and says that most of the AVGs provide only "light-to-moderate" intensity physical activity.

And that, she says, is not nearly as good as what she calls "real-life exercise."

"For those not engaging in real-life exercise, this may be a good step toward this," said Peng, an assistant professor of telecommunication, information studies and media.

"Eventually the goal is to help them get somewhat active and maybe move to real-life exercise."
Not in a million years.

People are too damned lazy.

Besides, exercise is useless or worse. Training is what you need to do.
