DDR stands for “Dance Dance Revolution.” It started out as an arcade only game in Japan in 1998, and has since become popular all over the world.
The gameplay involves standing on a platform with arrows pointing up, down, left, and right. Players must step on the arrows according to the sequence on the screen.
The arrows correspond with music playing in the background, hence the name: Dance Dance Revolution.
Although the concept sounds simple, it takes a lot of practice to become proficient at DDR. The more difficult songs take a great amount of agility and endurance to clear.
There are many home versions of the game available for different game systems. Currently, you can find Dance Dance Revolution on Sony Playstation 1 and 2, Microsoft Xbox, Nintendo Gamecube, and Sega Dreamcast.
