Quest for Dance Dance Revolution

leave a comment »

After hitting the gym yesterday, I stopped by the local GameStop to look for used Xbox Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) Games.  While we already have an Xbox 360 in the main floor, we setup the original Xbox in the basement with one of the BNS dance pads (the extra cushioning type).  This allows for all types of jumping and commotion without too much impact on the main family and dining area.

Luckily for me, I was able to find a copy of DDR Ultramix 4 for the Xbox for like $12. Not too bad! However, while I was on my way to pay for the game, I overheard a conversation between a mother and her 10 year old son. Basically, the son wanted to trade in a Sony PSP with like 5 games for a Nintendo DS.  The mother was following the son and telling him that he should be playing more mature games instead of baby games.

I didn’t quite understand the hold up until the little guy approached the workers at the counter. The sales guy asked the son what type of games he liked to play and he replied Action. Then the worker asked the son what type of action game he was looking at for the Nintendo DS and the son replied, “Nintendogs”.  I kid you not! In a way, I felt a bit sorry for the little guy because all he wanted to do was play Nintendogs but he was getting razzed by his mom on his choice of games.
