Games that slow your heartrate

Historically, video games are designed to make your mind and body hump things. Go faster. Beat harder. Sweat. But some games want you to stop and smell the green, grassy hillocks of your mind.
For example, “The Journey to Wild Divine” includes biofeedback sensors to monitor your heart rate as you maneuver through a Myst-like environment, hoping to befriend the trees. Oter so-called healthy games are aimed at kids with ADD and ADHD with headsets that monitor brainwave activity, rewarding the player when his or her attention is better focused.
