Music games used to be an indispensable part of arcade halls and had a huge influence on Japanese music and club culture. In the Arcade, you can always see people waiting in line for games, taking turns to play or two people playing together with a machine, choosing their favourite music, just like a B2B set.
At the end of a game the screen says, Thank You For Playing. With the passage of time, music games may no longer have the glory they once held but from popular culture to the underground it is still an indispensable lifestyle for some. In a dark corner, you will still come across someone playing a game, and that line of words, Thank You For Playing.
