In brief: Wii fit
Careful. There is a lot of joint tendinitis upper/lower extremities and shoulder because of overuse, improper mechanics, lack of proper warm ups.
There is no substitute for actual outdoors exercise. The wii yoga/strech is pretty good (adults more likely to use it than kids).

I enjoy the Wii occasionally myself. But I totally agree with your caution.
