Nerd mode, activate! I started playing DDR about 18 years ago. Made tons of friends playing this stupid “dancing” game. I wish I kept in touch with more of them. It helped me gain confidence at a period of my life when that was at an all-time low. Starting a game with no one around and ending it to the applause of a small crowd never gets old.I’ve played every chance I got but Boston doesn’t really have DDR machines around, so I finally FINALLY got my own metal pad to play at home.Bonus: I’m going to work off at least 2 winter’s worth of Boston insulation.
