On Monday we usually have a Community Review, where we discuss the latest releases – but since there aren’t any new games of note, I thought I’d ask everyone a question. What has your experience with exercise games been? Has anyone given one a serious go? Anyone bought one?
I actually use Wii Fit regularly, as a scale. I’m trying to lose five kilos and I’ve become quite obsessive about weighing myself and charting my progress. But I can’t say I’ve ever used a game to actually exercise, or had any direct results from using them.
Recently I gave Ubisoft’s Your Shape on Kinect a go, and found the interface fun, and the exercises interesting, but I’m not sure how much of it is just presentation and fluff.
Apparently UFC: Personal Trainer is awesome – genuinely. I have a copy, but haven’t tried it yet.
I think, like anything, getting results is a result of your own motivation and commitment regardless of how you do it. You could probably lose weight by jogging on the spot in your bathroom five times a week, just as long as you were consistent.
But anyway – what have your experiences been? Anyone got any success stories?
