Man I dunno, people are pretty desensitized to dancing games at this point. People tend to stop and stare now if you're doing something ridiculous or excruciatingly loud. I suppose playing backwards on stealth would be mighty fun to watch to the layman as well.

Though the first time I played a rhythm game at an arcade was only 2008 (ItG), the impressiveness factor seems to have stayed pretty constant since then. I dunno. At GXS at least, people tend to glance over if someone plays a fast, loud (most importantly) Pump song on both panels. As for DDR, it's harder to say. I've never seen anyone play on stealth, let alone backwards.

In case you want to try it for yourself:

A normality test:
+++ATH
If you are no longer connected to the internet, you need to apply more wax to your modem: it'll make it go faster.
If you find this funny, you're a nerd.
If neither of the above apply, you are normal. Congratulations.

Hey Max it was fun and awkward to meet you I hope you can make it up to GXS more often so I can talk about stupid shit like IndyDDR and The Internet with you.

Heh, yeah. Truth be told, my enjoyment of games in general has waned a bit recently, but if I ever feel up for GXS I'll try to head over there on Thurs./Fri. afternoon as per http://www.indyddr.com/forums/viewtopic ... 961#p84314 .
