DDR (Stepmania) changed my life.
About a decade ago I decided I didn’t want to be obese anymore. I’m 6’3" and I weighed around 300 lbs. DDR was an exercise that I could tolerate doing after delivering mail all day long. After six months I had reached my initial goal of getting under 250. Over time I added more exercises to my regimen and grew more disciplined in my diet. Today my weight is hovering around 190.
Without DDR I might be struggling with severe health issues today. Bemani has my gratitude for creating this wonderful game.


That’s an amazing progression!
