While I made this blog primarily to talk about rhythm games on the console, this wouldn't at all be possible without mentioning DDR. That is, Dance Dance Revolution. An arcade hit from the 90's, DDR is still played in Japan and similar Asian countries to this day.
Isn't that crazy?
DDR is arguably the origin of all rhythm games, and has inspired a spinoff called FFR, or Flash Flash Revolution. The Flash here refers to Flash games, a type of game that runs in your browser with an addon installed. It's essentially what you saw in the video, but done with your fingers on a keyboard.
Sometime in early 2009, FFR's website went down, and it remains down to this day. This makes me very sad!
However, the point of this post is to direct you FFR lovers (or completely newbies!) to http://ffr.lightdarkness.net/FFR/
There you can play the original FFR in all it's glory!
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
