Since the Nintendo Wii was released, and later the Microsoft Kinect, dance games have been quite popular in the home. Prior to motion controlling, the only real option for dance-related games was Dance Dance Revolution. I recall watching kids half my age just crush hi-scores and nail perfect after perfect on some of these songs and being a bit in awe of them; you see, I am fairly terrible at any form of rhythmic moving so I always stayed away from dance or anything resembling dance. When motion controls became a "thing" it was only natural for dance games to come to the home consoles which allowed folks like me to go through and "dance" in the safety of our own homes and away from prying eyes.
