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 would always see people waiting in line for games, taking turns to play or two people playing together, a bit like a B2B DJ 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.
This show features a lot of old works from the Beatmania IIDX and EZ2DJ arcade games, as well as some hot new songs, Thank You For Playing♥
