A rhythm-oriented action game, also known as "DDR", played with the feet. The player stands on a metal pad with four arrows (up, down, left, right) on it. When playing a song, colored arrows referring to the directions move up from the bottom of the screen, and the player steps on the correct mark, hence the term "dance.". This game requires stamina, a sense of rhythm, and foot-eye coordination. It is a very popular game in North America.
Let's play some Dance Dance Revolution!

A game that people often think is a dance simulation game. It actually doesn't simulate dancing very well.

There are quite a few decent songs on it, such as Lupin the 3rd '78, Midnite Blaze, Last Message, and Burnin' the Floor. The songs in DDR, however, still pale in comparison to IIDX's.

Most players are scrubs who are obsessed with the game but can't even pass a "3 foot" rank song, and keep putting their feet back in the center of the pad. Once they improve, they will play the same 3-5 songs in a row, unknowingly pissing off people like me.

On the bright side, the game offers a great workout.

Before you say that I am jealous of DDR players, or that I have never played it, keep in mind that I have played the game for 2 years, am very skilled, know much about the series, and I still play it from time to time, though the game to me is not just as enjoyable as it used to be.
I play Dance Dance Revolution when I don't have access to Drummania or Beatmania IIDX.

A game that is usually played at partys by people who pretend to be able to dace so they can get laid only to be rejected later that night.Usually abreveated as DDR.

A game where you jump around like an Asian crack head whore that as a dildo stuck up her ass and occasionally fall where you may be laughed at by people standing around you watching.
"Mommy, that Asian chick has something stuck up her ass, I think she's trying to get it out, can we help? ; No honey, she's playing Dance Dance Revolution."

Video game that became popular over the recent years. Employs dance-like movements to "win" a stage. Good game. However, nowadays it has become extremely overrated.

Good alternatice to exercise for gamers, because they hit two birds in one stone: lose fat and still play videogames.

Oh well, I still prefer exercise. Lessens the strain on my eyes.
Guy 1: That guy's pretty good at that song.
Guy 2: Yeah. Beats the poser over there. Mus've got the case of Yellow Fever, but he isn't hitching any asian chicks.
Guy 1: Absolutely.

A game that involves jumping around like an absolute loon. It is a fun game once you get used to it. Most hardkor sk8rs hate it 'cause it's not a sk8ing game and they are ingorant assfucks that think they're goth and there is no cheap-ass way to cheat.
