There should be actual exercise/weight loss games that WORK

Seems like all the ones on the market are very gimmicky (the UFC trainer) or just not intense enough to be called a workout (like WiiFit) I mean, I went from 225lbs to 165lbs (5'11) over the course of highschool to freshman/sophomore year of college, it took a lot of sweat. Well, I'm judging these "games" by their trailers alone and they seem very tame.

They should just have Insanity with PSmove where you do Insanity as Kratos (if youre a guy) or Hatsune Miku (if youre a girl), sell like hot cakes!

Have you tried EA sports active? that was a pretty good work out.

you need to wear ankle and wrist weights. working out with your body weight as the weight wont do much because your body is used to lugging that weight around all the time

Honestly, diet is way more important in weight loss and being healthy than exercise is. Exercise is good, but it's a smaller factor. If you eat stupidly, and/or eat stupid amounts, it doesn't matter what your exercise routine is.

If a fatty needs a game about an exercise program to DO exercises in the first place, he's already doing it way wrong.

Provoking other users to respond inappropriately = Troll
Even the most positive remark can provoke inappropriate responses. Thus, we ALL troll.

Diet can't really come from a video game. Doing low impact exercises is great, which some games do perfectly fine, but weight loss is calories in vs calories out. Bottom line.
