DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION

Ahhh the original DDR! Remember when it only cost $2 to play?

Dance Dance Revolution (abbreviated DDR) is a music video game series produced by Konami. Introduced in Japan in 1998 then released in North America and Europe in 1999,

DDR is the pioneering series of the rhythm and dance genre in video games. Players stand on a “dance platform” or stage and hit colored arrows laid out in a cross with their feet to musical and visual cues.

Players are judged by how well they time their dance to the patterns presented to them and are allowed to choose more music to play to if they receive a passing score.

Dance Dance Revolution has been given much critical acclaim for its originality and stamina in the video game market. There have been dozens of arcade-based releases across several countries and hundreds of home video game console releases.

The series has promoted a music library of original songs produced by Konami’s in-house artists and an eclectic set of licensed music from many different genres.

 

My favorite tracks were “Butterfly” and “Boom Boom Dollar” prolly because they were on basic mode and I can actually finish the whole song without failing.

One time I was at the arcades dancing to “Bumblebee” and it was too hardcore for me I fell off the platform. Soo embarassing especially when you have an audience.

I was smart enough to know that I don’t have the co-ordination to even attempt “Paranoia.”
