So there's health food, does this make us "health gaming"?

Excellent! Maybe I'm only 40, but I can still pull that one out of the bag every time Mrs Jim tells me to pay her some attention. I'll tell her Erik Rutins said it's healthier to play Matrix games!

Yes, I'm young, a smartass and already playing these kind of games......this means by the time I'm old I'll be a 'super' smartass.

If you were a European company you'd probably get subsidies for creating those "healthy" games

Hm, maybe we should open a "European Office" for our "brain therapy" line?

Just apply for TARP relief, everyone else seems to be.

40 adults over the period of a month? pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease! Scientists crack me up! 

Isn't it simply a fact that the mind is like any other part of the body...excerise does it good?

ROFL! That's the funniest post I've seen in months. Thanks Eddy!!!

Yes, if it's anything like our farmers, Matrix would probably get subsidised by the European Commission to produce empty boxes or CD's containing no data. We'd end up with a wargame mountain

I'm glad it is "strategy-heavy" games that are good for you.

The alledged great exercise of Wii games will probably kill me.  Got a Wii for Christmas from my mother-in-law (actually my wife wanted the game)  Pretty sad how sore you can get.  They even had a spot on the news about the new medical problem Wii-itis the other night.  Doctors seeing lots of injuries because of the game.

Of course if I was a bit paranoid, let's see, mother-in-law and wife get this game for me - maybe they are trying to kill me.

Erik,

Thanks for the hint, already printed the article for my wife. Probably she will be not amused.

Come on, fullfill my dream, get some HPS products on your catalogue and you will make a lot of money out of this and me. Or alternativly release Battle of the Bulge or the Musket Game. This is an opportunity you should not miss! (I nearly own the rest of your stock already, thats why I have got all brains´n´games and no money in my pocket)

Regards
Motomouth
