Drummania. Can't get controllers anymore though, nor the game.

Sports Champions for Move, Guitar hero then Dance Central for kinect in that order for me.



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

PSN: StlUzumaki23

Surprised no one has mentioned Just Dance considering how popular it used to be. I still play it on ps3 and ps4 and love it.

Yeeah, I used to get all the different PS2 games and once I got to heavy mode the dance pads wouldn't last too long.I think I stopped after Supernova 2 though. The newer ones weren't as good as DDR Max and Max 2, as I really liked the osts on those 2. Then... I got stepmania with a ton of songs, and that ended my time with DDR on consoles.

But dang, it's cool that you played other exercise games for your routine. Mine was just DDR and later I got into Pump It Up. I always wanted to get into Wii Fit, but wasn't sure if it actually helped with getting fit. So I passed on it. Now I feel like maybe I shouldn't have.

It depends on how you use it. The mini games were a fun distraction, however after setting all the high scores I never touched them anymore. Doing the exercises as shown won't get you very fit (it works just not very tacting). I add weight and or extra reps, going faster than the slow pace of the game, upto 110 for push up and side plank for example. It's a nice tool to keep track and have that little pause in between while selecting the next one. It's more of a motivation tool than proper 'workout instructor' And it's always fun when it accuses you of not making any effort when you're holding 20 pound weights instead of the wii motes.

I did, I'm elite on JD 2015 (ps4), won the may tournament. We have it on the Wii U as well. I had both running at the same time in online mode, switch back and forth to cut out the waiting part in between. The good thing about these games is that they get dirt cheap once the next version comes out. Buying up all the DDR games for ps2 didn't even get close to the price of 1 new game.

The ps4 camera doesn't work very well though. Even under the best light conditions it still loses track or suddenly introduces a false twin, switching to player 2 for the rest of the song. Odd, since Kung fu live keeps working until dusk on the old ps eye. Once in a blue moon I'll be able to get 5 stars with the camera, with the move 5 stars all the time on all the songs. (apart from a few I can't stand)



I actually think, even tough I have bough hundreds of games since my first own console in 1991 I have only owned one game which required an additional device not included with the main console, and that was my parents their original NES, they had a game called "Duck Hunt" and I needed to use a gun.

I loved it since I would just go really close to the TV and shoot the ducks. Apart from that I really dislike having to buy additional devices to use games, I did think about buying a racing steering wheel at some points but I haven't done that yet.

I believe you can drive a real M1 Abrams with those monstrous controls.

First of all, mad respect, man! As much as I try, I can't even get 5 stars on many songs.

Second, I had no idea the camera didn't track moves well. Since I already have a move controller, I'll use that from now on.



Rock Band 2

Time Crisis was good as well, but only in the arcade. I didn't enjoy the home version.



RockBand and Guitar Hero. Honorable mention to Wii Ski and the Balance Board.
