Anthony Limperos, an assistant professor at UK, is researching exercise video games like Wii Fit.

Part of that research involves figuring out what some of the contributing factors are to what makes people play exercise video games and what keeps them motivated to keep playing them.

Many of his test subjects are UK students, who play the games in his lab for 10 to 15 minutes and then fill out a questionnaire about their experience.

Limperos says the interaction with the game makes a significant impact on the experience.

The game's trainers help to keep the players motivated and help them use correct form when working out.

The findings have been presented at a number conferences and Limperos is working to get the results published as he continues researching the topic.
