Video Games That Are Good For Your Heart

Some interesting news came out today from one of the largest heart organizations in the U.S.  The American Heart Association has given its seal of approval to the Nintendo Wii Gaming System.  Apparently they have taken the old phrase literally, “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!”  Even though most people think of video games as being inherently bad, the Nintendo Wii offers a more active type of game.  The Wii Fit and Wii Sports Resort games require significant movement in order to play.  It’s basically an exercise program for a modern generation revolving around media and high-tech graphics.  I don’t personally believe playing these physical video games should replace your usual exercise routine.  It doesn’t hurt to change things up a bit though and play a video game of tennis on a rainy day!
