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...

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.
