I've seen a Wii game that requires consideration action, and I suspect that there are more. Therefore, video games can be designed to require exercise, but most of them aren't designed that way yet.

I don't have any children, so I can't answer your question.

Thanks for chiming in. Even virtual exercise is better than no exercise! I would miss the outdoors though! Please continue to share your experiences on any and all subjects.
