    Are these the games with the huge powerpad dance floor thing? I think I saw a japanese kid playing this game in that crappy movie w/ bill murray....ahh I can't remember the name but it was supposed to be all "deep" or whatever. edit: lost in translation is the name.

    Remember playing Track and Field w/ the nintendo powerpad? That was sweet.

    Actually, my rather skinny surgeon that I shadowed, commented on how he acquired his laproscopic surgery skills by playing video games. It's just like the video game joy sticks...

    Of course, if it is just like a video game, getting the GAME OVER screen is NOT A GOOD THING! :eek: :laugh: :D

    Nothing automatically makes someone fat. But kids who stay home all summer and play rainbow six 9 are going to be fatter than kids who exercise.
