The Wii Proves Age-Old Arguments

Another random thought today.

Remember the old, "Video games are good for improving reflexes as well as eye and hand coordination," defense?

Now think of Jared, the Subway representative that said, "Video games made me fat?" Obviously, it was deduced that video games involve no exercise.

In comes Nintendo, with an movement-reliant video game system. Out with simply moving a half-inch stick, and in with moving the whole forearm. Out with simple button pushing and in with swaying and tilting. Prepare for sore-arm-gaming, also known as exercise. And don't forget to review your statistics afterwards.

Combine that with other realistic arguments, and we have a winner. So much for debunking those original pro-gaming arguments...
