Since November, I've lost about 35 pounds.  Absolutely 0% of that weight was lost using an exercise video game (despite owning one, the Wii Fit).  So I got to thinking, are there any of these supposed "fitness" video games that are worth your time...and money?

According to Consumer Reports, it's a mixed bag.  I know from experience that if you want to lose weight, you have to keep your heart rate up; and that has always been my problem with the Wii Fit: there's too much rest time between exercises.

So which games actually do provide an effective workout?  Check out the video below from 9-News to find out.
