EZ2Dancer was probably my favourite of the dance games. The pad layout was simple and the hand action could be fun with a little imagination. Went to a couple of competitive freestyle events at Funland and the bar just kept getting raised in terms of how much freedom someone could squeeze out of a track without failing it.
Went on visits to other arcades with the Funland regulars in other towns, usually on the coast somewhere. I got fairly well known after I developed a three-track expert/mirror/double/stealth semi-freestyle routine for DDR Euromix (Holiday, Word Up and Stomp To My Beat, IIRC) and pulled off 100% perfect combo run through that nightmarish hard 4-track set with Afronova and End of the Century in it.
I didn't just play dance games, I played everything. I was especially good at light gun games, often dual-wielding (even in Point Blank) and refining my knowledge of a game until I could complete it in a single credit. Never quite managed that for Final Fight, my record was 2 credits, but remember that Die Hard Arcade brawler? Got through that in a single life-bar one time. Owned* a lot of machines, including a Guitar Freaks, several House of the Dead machines, a bunch of retro cabinets (198k on Galaga was a good day) and a Derby Owners Club - much to the annoyance of some guys who traveled down specifically to set new course records on that with their uber-trained horses, just to find out I was 2-5 seconds a race faster than even their personal bests.... front-runners FTW!
One day I'll have to explain what a coin-operated video game was to someone before they could even begin to understand the war stories that have come out of places like that.
