Every video game is not intended to be a replacement for doing the real thing. I like Foosball, but I don't have room in my house for a foosball table, this could be a nice and fun alternative with out taking up space.
Our lifestyles are so sedentary that foosball gets made into a videogame now? What next, chess? Oh wait. Nevermind.
As opposed to not having a foosball table around and not playing AT ALL.
