    Easily Audiosurf. I have a lot of time racked up on that on Steam… and it’s actually missing a lot of hours due to not having an internet connection a while. Seems like every time I get a new song, I can’t wait to see what it’s like in Audiosurf.


  • I’ve gotta give it up to the game that got me into beat gaming, PaRappa The Rapper/UmJammer Lammy were fantastic in their time.

  • m9

    Elite Beat Agents, I think.

  • Mikazuki

    I like Dance Dance Revolution! ^_^

  • darkcitadel

    PaRappa the Rapper it was just so much fun

  • MooMilk

    Rock Band 3

  • Wchillinman

    I love the RockBand series, Rock Band 3 especially since they added Pro mode that lets you play real instruments.
