Games promote Healthy issues

GameSpot reports:

The University of Maryland School of Medicine is again hosting the Games for Health conference, a two-day gathering that health-care workers and researchers use to look at and discuss the latest health-related game technology. It is part of the Serious Games Initiative, which finds real-world applications to games in fields such as education, training, and health.

I always thought games promoted healthy issues. Games like GTA and Dead Rising clearly shows “Whats NOT good for health”.

Dead Rising

Thanks to games like GTA we know what happens when a car runs over pedestrians. By games like Dead Rising we know importance of keeping healthy diet or you could turn into a zombie, which is not very healthy for both you and your neighbors.
