* Any Nintendo3DS game that allows you to exchange Play Coins for rewards has elements of this, since the only way to earn Play Coins is to go for a walk while carrying your system in sleep mode. You can shake the system to trick it into counting steps, but it's generally less stressful and tedious to just walk around your neighborhood, a park, or a shopping mall (assuming you live someplace safe, of course). However, the fact that you can't earn more than 10 coins a day (which is an equivalent of 1000 steps) downplays the exergaming element quite a bit, considering making 1000 steps a day isn't that much of an exercise.
