Video games: a good source of physical activity

I think that using video games as a source of physical activity is a great idea.  A good example would be for an elderly person going through rehab.  A video game will help them focus on having fun, and not even realize that they are being physically active or working on improving skills.  Small children will also like using video games for physical activity because they won't even realize that they are up and moving.  Kids will love playing a game and being physically active at the same time.  Also, if a child is playing the bicycle course game, and has a good time, he or she may be interested in learning how to ride a real bike, or pick up mountain biking as a hobby.
