An arcade game frequented by people who look like they normally couldn't dance. DDR is--in fact--a form of dance (more or less). The arrows which guide the dancer in their steps face the four cardinal directions and can be stepped upon in numerous combinations of patterns. The key to the game is timing on the techno beat of your song of choice. Some of the most popular songs include: "Dam Dariam", "Butterfly", and "Healing Vision". Excellent dancers are known as "maniacs" and their dance performances reflect that title. Although originally intended for use in Japan, Americans secretly exported these DDR machines into their country until the game manufacturer, Konami, declared that exportation of DDR machines would be declared legal. If you play too much DDR, you will see arrows in your head every time you close your eyes over the course of the hour following gameplay.
Dance Dance Revolution is by far the greatest arcade game ever!
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 requires endurance, coordination, and good taste in music. Non-players dislike it, primarily because there's no cheap-ass way to cheat.

"Stupid DDR game. It's so stupid. (inserts infinite life code). Now I can play House of the Dead forever! W00T!
A popular arcade game in which you must use your feet to press arrows in coordination with what goes on on a screen infront of the player.
On a side note, also a great game.
The Japanese (Konami) are quite ingenious when it comes to unique, and as usual, very popular games. Take Metal Gear for example. It was rated one of the best games of the year back in the day, and still is with the new games and series coming out. DDR does not attract only ugly, pale young males, and no females. In my area there are plenty of both young healthy males and young cute girls that play the game.
"Homosexuals" is definitley the wrong term to be used when defining DDR. When 2 males go up together to play, they do not make contact with eachother nor do they make any sexual reactions to one another.
Dance Dance Revolution is a popular Japanese arcade game.
A popular Japanese dance game normaly known as DDR. It combines quick movement with extreme coreography and coordination. It is usually played to extremely good techno-songs and it has 5 different difficulties; begginer, light, standard, heavy, and challenge. People who are very good tend to draw crowds at arcades (like me)and usually go for the hards songs suc as; max300, maxx unlimited, legend of max, etc.... And NOT only Asians are good at this!
try the game...you only hate it cuz you can't do it. and you know that...so get up and try it. Unless you are fat...then it might be hard.
also there is this song that is illegal to be in the united states called MAX. (period) and it goes up to almost 700 BPM...! X0
A super sweet game that requires much coordination and balance. Real DDRers don't follow the arrows exactly, looking like morons having seizures on their feet in the process. The best DDRers look like they're really dancing, all the while stomping on just enough correct arrows to keep from failing the song.
Damn, Jason can move on and off the DDR dance pad. He takes his dance moves to the DDR machine seamlessly. I wish I could move as smooth as Jason without looking like I'm stomping on 400 ants in 90 seconds.
An awesome and popular game that combines catchy dance music, foot coordination, and exercise. It would also really help if you knew how to find the beat in a song.
