Dance Dance Revolution: Usapin ng Laro at Sayaw sa Panahon ng Globalisasyon

Jema M. Pamintuan

Abstract


The Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) Machine is becoming a favorite game among the youth and even the not-so-young. While much has been written on the mechanics and popularity of the game, this essay aims to probe into the DDR phenomenon as a parallel tool and response to the changes brought about by technology and the age of globalization.
