From the Paper:

"Since the dawn of home video game systems users have been forced to sit; only able to enjoy the action taking place on his or her television screen, doomed to a sedentary state for the entire game. Technology has vastly changed as the games and their respective systems have become more complex and user interactive with graphics that are nearly mirror images of real life yet the fact that the games are played sitting down has not changed in any way. Then the Nintendo Wii came along and changed the video game industry forever with its revolutionary and innovative style."
