If any of you have seen anybody play DDR, whats the most extreme thing you've seen?

When I was up in San Fransisco, there was this one guy who was dancing both pads to a high-paced song. He got every step perfect. I thought that was kinda crazy.

Man, how many DDR's have they made? Well anyway, I'm not a big DDR player,and I really suck at it, but the wierdest thing I've ever seen on DDR was when this guy was playing a very fast song, and he wasn't facing the screen!!! :shock: How can anybody do THAT?

:shock: REALLY??? Wow, that's pretty cool. This is the first time that I have ever heard of a school having arcade games on campus!

Man I'm old school with this. I was playing that back when it was only 2nd, 3rd and 4th mix was new. I hate getting crowds though when I play. Those little kids watching annoy me too cuz they've got so much time on their hands that they already know the moves memorized.

I love Stomp to my Beat, Dream A Dream, Dam Dariram, and a bunch of others.

Oh, I play all the old songs...as well as some new ones. Personally, I love crowds and kids, because the majority of the people don't know how to play...then they admire you!
Perosnally, I prefer to do:
DMX, Era, Afranova, and the paranoia's.

DDR is pretty cool, and I like to watch people play the stupid thing, but I myself suck at it. First of all, I have no rhythm, so the mere sight of me dancing is enough to make anybody's day. And then, my friends always make me play it just to get a good laugh. But I end uyp laughing at myself also. So...

i learned marking time to the beat in the begining or when u arent hitting any pads helps. the game is fun i like to play the easy songs. i'm actualy not that bad for not really playing at all. now if i had practice i'd be somthing.

I thought I was the only one that marked time. Doing the drumline "duts" also helps. During silent parts between musical phrases I go "DUT DUT DUT DUT!" and people stare at me weird.

what would be cool is a marching band version of DDR
instead of arrows pointing to music
it's a DM giving u commands and stuff like that while listening to a beat. !

The philosophy to the game:
If your any good, you like it.
If you are not good, or never have played it, you hate it and think everyone who plays it is wierd.

I think ddr is really fun but i'm horrible at it! my friend across the street has it on playstation so i go over there sometimes to play. I'm so bad at it though, I'm probably very funny to watch.
