Default Successful Video Game Dieters?

I am trying to lose weight like almost everyone here, recently me and my spouse have been trying the Wii game Just Dance and it SEEMS like a good workout, though we tried Wii Fit and fell out of the habit.

My question is: Has anyone successfully incorporated some of the more active games that have been offered into a regimen to positive results? I've heard that losing weight through video games is a fallacy so I am really wondering from people in the community here at 3 chicks.

I've seen some posts from people who incorporate DDR or other games, but I'm not sure about long-term. Personally, I can't motivate myself to burn as much as I want to on a game, but I do stick with my elliptical.

I have DDR and wii fit and I just wasn't able to workup a sweat. For cardio I need to go hard, and I just don't feel like i can achieve that in my living room!

However if you are doing it at a fast pace and it gets you sweaty and you do it regularly, it stands to reason that you'll get results. If you commit to doing 1 hour of DDR every day, you'll get results because you're burning cals!

So the question here is not what the games can do for you, but what you can do with the games....
