In some ways this is already starting - kids and adults playing Dance Dance revolution which is a dance based video game, sort of similar to simon says. It requires quite a bit of aerobic activity. OTOH I think that many reasons that people enjoy the MMORPGs is that the success *isn't* linked to ones physical prowess, except in fine motor co-ordination.
But I don't disagree, I think that would be bitchin' fun...
The reason it would work, as I envision it, is that success in the RPG would NOT be linked to one's physical prowess. The system is trained to know what you can do, and demans that you put out a real effort *compared to your own ability*, but does not demand that you do well by an objective standard -- which most of us would be unable to do.
