Fitness Games Won't Work - Tweex the Gaming Geek

"As a long time gamer, I’m overjoyed to see games moving into other areas of life through the process of gamification (check out this video to learn all about it). However, I’m left with a sense of un-fulfillment. I’m not here to question its effectiveness based on whether it passes or fails, but rather if it is always the best method."

no one plays these games anymore, the only ones really using the wii anymore are the core gamers playing the 3 great games that just released (last story, xenoblade and pandora's tower) the wii fad died and it seems nintendo predicted the time to drop support of the console and launch the wii-u with odd timing.

good ridence motion gaming, well ofcourse unless its done right like some of the wii's best games, but we all know most games didnt use it right

Fitness games are the best hope for the Kinect but until people start doing them right it makes it hard to enjoy them. A fitness game has to be thought of from an entertainment standpoint to keep the players attention and want to exercise as well as a fitness standpoint. They exercises are important but integration with online, a personal stat tracker that the user can wear outside the game and sync later, the ability to easily load what they ate via voice and online database of common foods, etc. There are so many things missing. Granted Kinect needs to improve accuracy to help the exercises but for the most part they could have a good future.
