I've been using the Wii Active 2 game for about 4 weeks now! I have finished the 3 week program and just started on the 9 week program. It definitely gives me a workout every time and I can customize it to my weight and preferences. It also allows you to track your nutrition and outside activities. I have found it really helpful. The best part for me as a college student is that I can do the workouts at any time. If I get home late or need to do it early in the morning I can fit it in. Sometimes the gym is closed or the classes I want to attend don't always fit in with my schedule. That's my take on it!
Oh god, I would be tripping all over myself if I tried a Dance Dance game...
I use wii fit. I first got it because i tried out the Xbox Kinect workout game at my friends house. It's pretty cool and has some nice weight/progress tracking features plus it's obviously fun. But I don't think it's near as intense as getting on a treadmill or lifting weights.

I've noticed several threads on the forum here about the Wii Fit. I don't personally own the Wii system, but when I had a roommate who did, she shared, and I found it a great fitness tool - even without the Wii Fit board.
Right now, I have an Xbox 360. I use the Dance Dance Revolution games with a dance mat to get some good exercise in. It's easy to do, because you take less than five minutes to set up, boot up your system, load the game, and go. You can pick your own songs, your own difficulty, and you can do it in your own bedroom!
The convenience of it makes it nearly impossible not to do. Anyone else use video games to push toward their fitness goals?
