Combining rhythm, music, and physical dancing into this innovative game, Dance Dance Revolution (aka DDR) has set a new style of gaming. On November 1998 the game hit the streets and dominated Japan by storm and eventually became known worldwide. This project teaches you the basic mechanics of the game. From how to play, to the wide diverse selection of music, and the different types of difficulties. It’s strong popularity went into the competitive gaming world and positive feedback has caused high interest to bring the game into hundreds of school’s physical education system. It’s a physically challenging game that is not only fun but a great cardio work out.
This was a self reflection class project. The topic basically asked, “what makes you happy and how does it affect you personally?”. While yes we could of gotten more information on the game and the history, but we were limited on how many minutes the video could be. We decided to focus a big part on how DDR can make a impact with obesity and how it can function in a every day use in schools for P.E. We believe this game could make a huge impact because since it’s such a fun game, people won’t even realize how much of a work out they are getting from it.
Give it a try when you see one! Presented by Angelie (annjuh-wee) for her class project. I just helped a bit :)
Filmed my cousins (annjuh-wee and her brother) freestyle Dynamite Rave for fun at Main Event in Shenandoah near Woodlands Mall. It was done in more than one take to get all the fancy angles. I’m sure you can tell =P. I threw in a few shots that my nephew took with an iPhone (you might see the quality change a few times). We only played on one side to save money so we can play it multiple times.
Just for laughs and giggles the audio was taken from a DDR tournament to make it sound like there was a huge crowd. Kind of sad DDR isn’t as popular anymore like it was when I was younger. Wish there were more DDR machines out there.
