Top Tier: The weak of the rhythm genre, part 2

Grant Potter: "When we left off in part one, the turn of the century found the rhythm/music genre enjoying moderate success. The games were fun, fresh, and innovative; we were happy campers at this point. But who do I mean by “we”? At that given time, it would have been the explorers: the hardcore, the niche. With the exception of big-name games like Dance Dance Revolution and Parappa the Rapper, most rhythm/music games were still obscure. Gitaroo who? Bust a what? Casual players were still ignorant of the speeding freight train that was about to blindside them." (Culture, Dance Central, Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero II, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, Rhythm Heaven , Rhythm Heaven Fever, Rock Band, Rock Revolution, Sequence)
