Sound silly, but is the most popular arcade game in the world since it came out....
Only people who have never played it, think it's bad (i did before I played it)
Girl: deletes text, doesn't respond
Boy in person: "hey did you get my text?"
Girl: (checks phone) "oh I don't have it here, sorry!"
Girl's friend: "did you reply to his text?"
Girl with friends later: "Get that crap outta here. I DDR'd that text. Kbye to the extreme."
Though it may not be the most known, this Bemani (Konami's music simulation series) feature has you dancing to high speed *most of the time* music and watching coloured arrows travel up the screen.
Gameplay is simple: Step on the appropriate arrow on a dance pad as soon as it has hit the top of the screen.
There are two types of DDR. Dance Dance Revolution, and Dance Dance Revolution Solo. With most of the DDR games, you only use four pads (which resemble a plus sign). As for solo DDR games, you use the four on opposite sides plus two corner buttons in the top-left and top-right corners.
DDR also comes in many different mixes, which include different interfaces and song lists.
"That would have to be Dance Dance Revolution... yeah that's DDR!"
"Holy crap, let's go play! I hear that MAXX UNLIMITED and PARANOiA are easy songs! Well, at least from some creepy girl named MJ."
"OK, how much for a game??"
"Oh. Well... it SAYS one dollar for 3 songs."
"That price rocks my socks!"
greatest fucking arcade game ever.
a game that requires u to read the arrows as they scroll up (or down if u change the settings) on the screen and step on the corrosponding arrow on the dance pad. the arrows go to the beat of the song being playd. hence the name.
ddr requires good coordination, good rhythm, and somewhat good physical shape
contrary to what some people may believe, being able to play this game does not mean u can dance. it just means u have rhythm. the closest one can get to being able to actually dance through ddr is freestyling.
the majority of people who criticize ddr are classified under 1 of 2 categories
1. never playn it, just hate on it cause alot of ppl are really into it and they say it looks/sounds stupid
2. playn it and suck monkey balls at it so they just hate on it
DDR is like a drug, once u get hooked, its hard to get off. and it drains ur money like a mofo.
2. (verb) to play Dance Dance Revolution.
2) We didn't feel like doing anything special, so we just chilled, DDRed, and played cards all day.
