Video Games for New Year's Resolutions and Safe Fun

Written by RealMsH


Just Dance 4

Did you make any New Year's Resolutions for 2013?  Or did you make a mental note to be active and to exercise more in the new year?  If you did, there are lots of fun video games to help you out.  Who say's that exercising has to be boring.  Move around, safely of course,  playing some of these video games, have fun and burn a few calories -- all at the same time.  

Just Dance 4, by Ubisoft, continues to be popular for all ages, and is in fact rated E for Everyone.  WIth this game, there are no military strategies to ponder about, or zombies to destroy -- just emulate the figures on the screen and move with the music.  


Kinect Sports

Video games requiring your physical movement are not only geared toward safe exercise, but you can have fun -- good times as well.  Games that come to mind are Kinect Sports and Kinect Adventures, playable on the Xbox 360.

If you want a more regimented video game exercise routine, you may prefer Zumba Fitness, Wii Fitness, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved  or other games made especially for exercise. Whatever your preference in exercising, there is a video game for you.

As in all things, moderation is key and although it's comfortable to play video games in the comfort of your own home, do not discount the advantage of either taking a brisk walk, running errands or performing other activities that will exercise not only your body, but your mind as well.


Be safe and have fun!

Thank you. It is never too late (or too early for that matter), to begin a safe, healthy exercise plan, and more importantly to stick with it. Some video games are geared especially for exercising; however, video games that involve moving around (safely of course), can be beneficial to help fulfill resolves to be more active and healthy in the New Year.
Happy Gaming! -- RealMsH

I'm definitely going to try to be more active and consistent with my exercise this year. My first order of business is to go back and finish all the songs in Dance Central 3! Then I might move on to the games you mentioned here. Great topic, Ms. H!
