Games can be part of the obesity - prevention solution

Water Cooler Games has a nice bit about the CDC's new ad campaign against video games.

Here is what people are  missing when they talk about games and obesity. The *games* aren't the problem, the sedentary activity is. If we can capture what is great about games, and port that into activity, we will have found a great new way to reach people who don't enjoy moving other ways. 

Why do kids play baseball videogames instead of real baseball? Their reasons probably vary from gamer to gamer... but let's capitalize on those reasons and increase activity through gameplay!
