I like Ring Fit Adventure. Nintendo put a lot of thought into how to deliver it, and I feel that it works well for all ages. I’ve done it about once every other day for anywhere from 10-30 minutes of "active" time. I’m not a huge fan of the "gamifying" trend of "everything you do must be rewarded", but in this case it works well. Even if it’s just ten minutes, you leave with a sense of accomplishment both in the game progress and physically.

Also, it’s easy to go at your own pace. Aside from a few things, there’s usually no need to rush. The game is really good about reminding you to take breaks and drink water, and asks before you start if you want to increase or decrease the difficulty from your last session.

The hardware is brilliant. The Ring feels sturdy and I’ve no concern about breaking it. The leg strap could be a bit more secure, but there’s only so much you can do with an adjustable elastic band. It would be even better if you could strap extra controllers to your other leg and to your torso, so that the game has even more data on your posture.

I live in a condo, so I have to use the silent mode of bobbing up and down to simulate running, and I actually think it’s a harder workout than jogging on the spot. I was concerned that it would be too loud for my downstairs neighbours, but I don’t think that’s a problem at all.

The true test is my nephew, who got his own copy for Christmas and loves it. He’s probably not paying as much attention to form and posture as I am, but it’s getting him to be active and that’s enough for me and his parents.
