GH to me always felt like DDR adapted for your fingers...

DDR has four notes, Guitar Hero has FIVE. Obviously they're very different.

SlamVanderhuge3489d ago

and DDR to me always felt like Dragon's Lair with music.

So...Dirk the Daring is the forefather of Rock Band

SirLarr3489d ago

To be fair Dragon's Lair had music too.

A HiFi3489d ago

Good list. Never knew about the Piano one.

italianbreadman3488d ago

Yeah, that was a surprise to me, too.

Man beatmania was and still is a fun game for me, Still even have my copy for the PS2. Now that I see it here kind of makes me want to go back and play it again. Though wish the American version had more Jpop songs.

Anyway DDR is good to, just wish their was one for PS3 and 360 with DLC >.>

SirLarr3488d ago

Now that you mention it, I don't know why they've skimped on DLC for DDR, the match seems obvious.

stewie328873488d ago

Yeah, it saddens me a little that DDR is kind of being left behind this gen. It's such an addictive game.

Parapa was a sweet game. I could go for another one.
