Active Games No Better Than Traditional Games For Children

The moral of the story? If active video games didn't suck so bad maybe kids would actually play them.

He conducted a filed study with 56 children who were given access to active games for two months at home, traditional games for two months, and no games for another two months. He found that children did an average of five or six minutes more physical activity a day when they had no access to electronic games or active video games. Parents that took part in the study said that it was easier to replace traditional games with active games than it was to ban gaming altogether in their households.
