By no means does the Wii play ANY role in America's diets and exercise, but it CAN help.
If you have a lazy kid that lies down while playing Xbox, Wii can help, sorta, by making him sit, other then that it won't help.
Ummm....No I would say it doesn't help at all unless you get the wiifit or something, but IMO the old DDR series for xbox was actually much better excercise. I remember when everyone was into that. We had DDR parties and everything.

LOL times have changed.

Well, do you ever like to stop and relax?

I mean really, some people just need a break, especially if they are already really busy. Maybe you are different, but everyone is different.

I agree with you here Rubber. People that think the wii is too much work have issues. I myself just like the relaxed nature of the classic controller.

Whyfly is right as well, we all have our own opinions and this shouldnt turn in to a silly 10 page argument thread.

Lets just all agree that Chrono Trigger was the greatest game of all time, thanks

haha

Wiifit is an overpriced mirror with a weight scale. Do you REALLY need a machine to tell you if you are overweight? Ask someone close, or just google your weight/age/height ratio.
DDR WAS exercise. You didn't have to move just kinda move legs in certain spots, but HOW could you resist? I mean come on it was so much fun (Got a cousin with DDR, still throws party )
Wii is just another console, great new technology, but by NO MEANS a fitness program.

I completely agree.

I loved DDR on my PS2. I had the one tthat was eyetoy compatible, so it wasn't just jumpin around. It was actually dancing (sort of) That was fun. I remember once I played it for like 12 hours straight. I hit menu and it told me I had burned like 2000 calories No wonder I was so hungry.

Can't wait to play that again.
This was BEYOND dancing, it was just craziness, but it was all fun.


Wii would be something good for fitness, if you put some sensors on your legs, torso, hands, arms and head, and like used your whole body, not just your hands.
