Abstract

Exergames, video games that have activities based on the gamers’ intention to exercise, improve, or maintain physical fitness, have the potential for entertainment and exercise. However, we hypothesize that exergames may not be as appealing as non-exergames. We evaluated exergames using three types of user studies: personal game reviews, user comment reviews, and user surveys. We came up with appealing elements in video games and wrote recommendation guidelines for an exergame with said elements.
