The other night in my LIS 768 class we played video games. This was probably one of the funnest classes that I’ve ever had. A number of people brought in various video game systems (PS2, XBox, Nintendo DS, PSP) and we hooked them up to the projectors and played. We had DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) on one projector and Guitar Hero II on the other. I have seen DDR but never played it. I understood that it was a physical game, but I didn’t really understand how physical. By the time we were done playing I was dripping sweat (this was compounded by the fact that I was wearing a long sleeve and a t-shirt). I’ve decided that I’m going to start a workout regimen that consists of nothing but DDR.
I also had a blast with guitar hero. I was really impressed with some of the music that they had available. I was playing DDR when I heard Danzig’s “Mother” and I was instantly pulled toward the game. It was the chance to fulfill my lifelong dream of being a rockstar.
If there was ever a way to get people into libraries, this is it.
