Its funny I have some Dance

Its funny I have some Dance games, but I have never played one, the kids next door used to come over (when i was in apt) and play.. teenage girls.. but you can only take so much of that giggling and such (and i thought teenage boys cussing like saliors would be annoying). I know my arms get tired fast as so many Kinect game require them.. (gunstringer).. I have fruit ninja, but again I think i glanced at it, but havent really played it. Dont have the Kung Fu one.. last one i picked up was hte Horror one? for get the name. i will cehcke the dance one out ( when nobody is home) :)

I actually like some of the stuff that's NOT specifically for workouts the best, though some, like most of the dancing games, have workout modes. Anyway... I highly recommend Dance Central 2 (the Just Dance series is crap in comparison). Surprisingly, Fruit Ninja can be quite the workout as well, and some of the mini-games in Kinect Sports will get you moving. Your Shape Fitness Evolved is pretty good, though sometimes the tracking in that leaves something to be desired. Kung-Fu High Impact is another type of game not expressly for working out that can work up a sweat. I haven't really tried any of the other fitness titles that I can think of, or at least made an impact on me... Definitely try the demos out on as much of this stuff as possible, because I think you'll definitely like some much more than others.
