I used to use my elliptical a lot or jog in place on a mini trampoline while playing RPGs that are turn based i.e. Last Remnant, Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon and to some extent Final Fantast 13 though I did have to stop on harder battles. I like exercising during games like that or yeah puzzle games like another person said. But if you don't like RPG's then yeah I think you will have your speed affected by the faster paced action games you tried playing while pedaling :)

Play now, make the rules later!

LMAO! That's hilarious!! i don't know what platform you're using..maybe some *easy* games.. puzzles or easy adventure rpg's?

I think that Ryan aka LifeandAll1 would be a great person to ask opinions on games. he's been playing a lot of them lately, why not send him a note?

No, I am terrible at driving games even when I am sitting still. I've been told that this is because I keep trying to apply makeup and talk on my cell phone while I'm playing them. Ahh, "woman driver" jokes.

I have a foldable recumbent bike in my living room. I picked this because it allows me to be relatively lazy and do other stuff while I'm getting my cardio in. However, I've found that trying to play any sort of FPS makes both my gameplay and my pedaling speed suffer (and that's just in campaign- don't even get me started on what it does to my multiplayer).

I have decent experiences with tower defense games (current favorite is Pokemon Tower Defense- http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/566150) and crosswords, but they don't involve much interaction.

Anyone having good experiences playing games while working out, in situations where the game itself is not your workout? What do you do? What do you play?

Things that are not good to play while biking:
Fallout 3
Fallout: New Vegas (I don't know why I thought this would be different)
Portal 2 coop
CoD: BO (worst)
Halo: Reach
Crisis Core
