Play games, burn calories

Watching a good pulse-racing chair-gripping horror movie apparently burns up to 184 calories a time, according to new research from British boffins. So presumably a good action-style video game, which can absorb up to three hours per play session, could be using up to 400+ calories a time — especially if you count the physical button-mashing that’s needed to play the game. 400+ calories is apparently the equivalent to a 100-minute walk.
