American Heart Association Wants You to Play Videogames



+ Add a Comment


I've been wondering if playing a really hard or tense video game that gets your heart rate up counts as cardio. It's excercising your heart, is it not?



having played (and subsequently sold) a wii i can vouch that you get far more exercise playing Dance Dance Revolution which makes me think this is more of a PR stunt than actual concern over healthy lifestyle.



actually, i highly agree. at best, wii can be useful for rehab patients or really obese people that need something toget started. my wii just sits there now, only the children play it and they still bug me to play my xbox. but yeah, the wii as a primary health machine...youd have to get a pretty decent assortment of accesories to make it viable and at that cost, might as well get a real workkout system.
