The purpose of this study was to assess the energy expenditure (EE) experienced by children when playing six active video games, which can be used in a home environment and in a public setting (e.g. game center), and to evaluate whether the intensity of playing these games can meet the threshold for moderate-intensity physical activity, which is set at an EE equivalent to three times resting metabolic rate. Children are recommended to be physically active at a moderate intensity for at least one hour a day. © 2014 ACM.
