There have been two musical rhythm games on this 1001 list that I can recall: PaRappa the Rapper and Beatmania. They were both... lacking... shall we say... but only one of them came from the minds behind the monster that is Dance Dance Revolution.
Arcades are more than familiar with strange gaming concepts, and this one makes use of the fact that arcades are often dark and noisy by blaring out bright colours and loud music from the screen and having players hammer away at inputs with their feet, as though players find themselves in a happening club on a Friday night. I think. I'm not a clubber.
I'm not a dancer. I'm boogie-er. I bop. You can find me bopping. A nice catchy song comes into my ears, I'll bop, but dance? Nah. Not happening.
So how the hell am I going to fare with DDR?
