    Hello, my name is Sak, and I am a Dance Dance Revolution Addict. It all started when my friend took me to play DDR at the arcade on the boardwalk two weeks ago. The "Heavies", as I like to call them (those who play on Heavy), called me a natural, and by the time I left the beach I was playing on Standard. I could even do three songs on Heavy (R3, Sexy Planet, and Jet World). By "can do" I simply mean pass with a "D".

    I want to buy DDR for my XBOX very bad, but my parents are afraid it will make too much noise. The pain, the terrible pain.

    DDR causes me great pain. Helped to ruin a chance I had to hang out with my ex last night.

    As far as the home game, if you can get a hard pad, and get it for computer, from what I know this is much better and the hard pad is closer to the real thing.

    I played DDR for a while last year. Then i stopped.

    I had a version for the computer as well, called StepMania (same thing basically) and i bought a pad and a PS2 to USB converter, and ta da.

    I'm sorry but I've always thought that was the goofiest looking thing when I see people playing it. Especially to see the guys who take it so seriously.

    No, It was Zachary, then it was Zach, then Zak, and now it is Sak. I forgot exactly how that happened.

    Flash Flash just doesn't do it for me. I like to jump around and stuff. It's looks silly as hell but it is sooooooooo fun.

    Nope, I think it's funny watching people play it though. Tekken is the only game that's ever really got its meathooks into my heart.
  11. OMG...is this the thing I saw on the boardwalk last week where people step around from block to block watching a video game??? So...so...weak. The guys were SO serious and there were groupies hanging out next to them with looks like, "Yeah, I know him...he's a good friend of mine...I'm cool too.." My wife and I were hysterical. Damn, I must be getting old.

    Its funny watching people trying to dance, when they are actually just leaning over moving their feet. Then you see the people who take it really really serious- it makes me chuckle to myself and think, WHY?

    Thats one thing about this current generation---they can take the dumbest things and turn it into them somehow being god-like. DDR, America's Army, Halo---everybody thinks its cool to devote their lives to NOTHING.

    I used to be addicted to it, but I've since broken that habit. Been removed for far too long, and don't nearly have the money for it anymore.

    -Is it silly? Yes.
    -Do people take it too seriously? Yes (like taking silly things seriously is anything new :rolleyes: )
    -Is it also the greatest invention of mankind after the wheel and fire? Yes
  15. Is this the thing like where the South Park kids are looking for dancers because "it's on" and they "brought it" and the other kids "got served" and they go to the mall and there's the kid dancing on the blinkey light flashy game thingy...?

    I played a casino gig awhile back and this boy, around 10 or so, is asking through his mom for us to play "stuff they can dance to." The little guy was really tearing it up, too. On a set break I told the mom that the little guy needed a DDR game for Christmas. I was then informed that he was some kind of 32nd degree grand wizard of DDR, or something like that.

    Seriously, though, I don't think I've ever seen anyone over the age of 14 playing this game. I'm guess that at least some of the DDR fans in this thread are over that age, so maybe I need to adjust my perception of it... hmmm.

  17. Yeah, and they want the kid to be on their dance team, and he says, "You mean dancing w/out a videogame to tell you what to do? That's pointless." Or something to that effect.

    I've never played this game. I knew about long ago somehow.
  18. I love DDR, I'm in serious debate on whether to buy the xbox version or just save my money.

    I'm better than the average bear, but I'm horrible when compared to the betters of the game. I want to get alot better. My cousin and good friend is probably the best DDR guy I know, this dude can friggin dance.
