For Shane’s and my project we decided to look at the game Dance Dance Revolution. The game seemed interesting because unlike most video games where you are using just your hands to control play, this game uses your whole body and tries to mimic actual actions from the real world… i.e. dancing. Another amazing phenomenon of DDR is how it is a very good social and spectator game, where many people enjoy simply watching others play.
The video tries to highlight these two qualities, the way in which the crowd can come into play with DDR and the link between dancing for DDR and dancing in the real world and how they are different.
