Who doesn't love a good game? Games, puzzles, quizzes - making information fun is one of the best ways to educate. But, what about exergames?

In contrast to traditional video games, exergames allow players to experience various activities (e.g., bowling, fishing, tennis, golf) in a virtual world or even take a walk or run. Hand controllers are eliminated and the body is used to power the game.

But, can they be used positively to treat childhood obesity and get kids moving more than just their thumbs? Experts think it is a step forward in working towards reducing obesity among the young, as electronic entertainment is not going away.

Try your hand at some of our Favorites. Have fun - and be sure to let us know if you find more. Who says you can't learn, get your exercise and be entertained at the same time?
