When it comes to video games, we have the following rule in my house: No more than one hour of playing video games a day—no exceptions!
Lately, however, there's been some debate around this rule, especially when it comes to fitness video games. Here's the argument: Should working out with a fitness video game count in a person's one-hour time limit? (My husband says no—he's not "playing," he's working out. I respectfully disagree.)
The new Your Shape Featuring Jenny McCarthy Wii game further complicates the situation because it is the first fitness game that enables people to experience a comprehensive workout controller-free. Instead of a controller, a motion-sensing camera scans players’ bodies, assessing their current fitness level and then projecting their images onto the TV. Pretty cool, eh? Oh, and Jenny McCarthy is there, too.
