The West Virginia education system hopes to use a video game to help battle obesity. Some kids just don't want to go outside and be active

It really no secret that adolescent obesity is a common problem that possibly doesn't get enough serious attention in the United States.  West Virginia, a state with one of the worst obesity problems in the nation, plans to implement the video game "Dance Dance Revolution" to help increase the physical activity of middle school students.  If all goes according to plan, every middle school in the state will be using the game within three years.

Are'nt there arcade games like this?

If so, I only ever see girls playing on that arcade machine...

Now a racing game that requires physical exertion somehow I can see guys doing.

I had that exact thought... Guess geeks and girls don't match... I should create a new kind of stereotype - geeks that actually get laid - glaiks?...
