Wii Fit’s got Nothing on 1983’s Joyboard by Amiga

25 years before the Wii Fit, Amiga unleashed the Joyboard upon an unsuspecting nation. The results? A resounding and thunderous silence. Of course who knows since everyone who used a Joyboard was never heard from again.

You see with the Wii Fit you can learn balance and maybe you burn a few calories — With the Joyboard play a Ski Game and then you get sucked into into a singularity. Beat that Nintendo. NextGen my ass.
