International survey on the Dance Dance Revolution game

International survey on the Dance Dance Revolution game Despite the growing popularity of physically interactive game-playing, no user studies have been conducted on dance gaming (one of the most popular forms of playing via full-body movements). An online questionnaire was used to study various factors related to Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) gaming. In total, 556 respondents from 22 countries of ages 12 to 50 filled in a questionnaire which examined the players' gaming background, playing styles and skills, motivational and user experience factors, social issues, and physical effects of dance gaming, and taking part in dance-gaming related activities. The results show that playing DDR has a positive effect on the social life and physical health of players, as it improves endurance, muscle strength and sense of rhythm, and creates a setting where new friends can be found. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Computers in Entertainment (CIE) Association for Computing Machinery

Abstract

Despite the growing popularity of physically interactive game-playing, no user studies have been conducted on dance gaming (one of the most popular forms of playing via full-body movements). An online questionnaire was used to study various factors related to Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) gaming. In total, 556 respondents from 22 countries of ages 12 to 50 filled in a questionnaire which examined the players' gaming background, playing styles and skills, motivational and user experience factors, social issues, and physical effects of dance gaming, and taking part in dance-gaming related activities. The results show that playing DDR has a positive effect on the social life and physical health of players, as it improves endurance, muscle strength and sense of rhythm, and creates a setting where new friends can be found.
