Salon wonders when Japanese “dancing” videogames will finally strike it big in the States. They’ve actually got them here in the UK and they’re amazing to watch. Every time I go in Funland in the Trocadero, the same two Asian kids are there in the middle of a circle of admirers workin’ it. They’ve even got extraneous bits worked out to dazzle the crowd – touching the floor, leaping over the bar, and spinning on the buttons. I don’t think I could ever do it myself though. Way too embarrassing. I did play Parappa the Rapper on Playstation though, which was fun. I lived with a guy from Hong Kong who had all the best bootleg Japanese games. Too bad all Americans want to play is Quake and Super Tecmo Bowl.
