    So I've been played Rayman Legends recently and I gotta say, I love the Rock Castle level:



    Yeeaaaahh... :hrth:

    So I wanted to know what rhythm games you guys recommend, cause I'm really in the mood for it. :D
    PC Games ofc.

    Osu!, Kickbeat, Retro/Grade and Space Channel 5 Part 2 are ones coming to mind. Also here's steam tag list: http://store.steampowered.com/tag/en/Rhythm/
    If you emulate DS, PSP and other consoles then there's tons more.

    Stepmania's pretty fun regardless of whether you own a dance pad or not. You can get song packs designed for keyboard players.

    And yeah, +1 vote for Osu.

    in addition to the above mentioned audiosurf and beat hazard
    each of those creates unique levels from music files, essentially gameplay powered by your music

    Pretty much anything Bemani. Most popular would be DDR, but games like beatmaniaIIDX, Reflec Beat, jubeat, pop'n music, Sound Voltex, etc are all wonderful options if you're looking to get into more hardcore stuff. Reflec Beat and jubeat have iOS versions, and the others all have simulators of some type available.

    Rhythm Heaven on the DS.

    Anyway, was I the only one disappointed about not hearing "Whoa, Black Betty bam-ba-lam"?

    Check out "Crypt of the Necrodancer" (ITS IN EARLY ACCESS BE FORWARNED)
    My personal favorite trailer:

    early access trailer:

    Currently has 3/4 zones completed and they seem to be adding new characters and items and misc functionality, I'd say its worth it for the 3 current zones, music is by Danny Baronowski, the guy who did the sountracks for Super Meat Boy/The Binding of Isaac
    available:

    It works fairly well with a usb (foam) dancepad I ordered.

    Play 2DX, can confirm. The game I linked (Lunatic Rave) is actually the most common IIDX simulator.

    Osu is the best rhythm game on PC.

    Guitar Hero 3 is also great, though playing with a controller can be quite difficult, but I have beat it on Expert using only a controller.

    While not EXACTLY a rhythm game, I recommend One finger death punch. It certainly has an insane amount of flow going for it.

    Recently played kickbeat. Very decent one...sort of "guitar hero meets street fighter".

    the bit.trip series are...minimalistic. But at the very least runner 2 is awesome (haven't played the other ones really through to that "zone" level).

    Symphony and audio surf use your own music. They work...but I never really got 'into' them.


    I've been hearing that rocksmith is the best way to actually learn to play a real guitar, but since my budget doesn't allow to actually go out and buy said real guitar*, I can't comment.




    *if someone knows a site where I can download one, lemme know. ;)

    Bit.trip series isn't exactly rhythm games IMO. There just happens to be rhythm in what you are doing and you have to do things before that rhythm comes.
    I have bit problem with those games as they are locked to 60 FPS and I have 144Hz monitor, so because everything is moving fast steady pace everything starts to seem double giving me headache. I can still play them with my plasma, but usually I just can't be bothered so I forgot those games.

    When I first started that game I had laptop and wireless mouse and still wondered what was wrong. Now that I have laser gaming mouse and high refresh rate monitor that game became piece of cake and I nailed even harder songs I couldn't earlier :)
    Just keep vsync off in-game, keep mouse speed relatively high and use keyboard for hitting instead of mouse buttons and it starts to play more naturally.

    Erm...yes. And since that 'before that rythm comes' during the game lowers to the point where it's almost zero, it is pretty much by definition a rhythm game.

    Here's a random gameplay video of bit.trip runner 2:



    You seriously aren't going to deny this is exactly the sort of gameplay like the music levels of Rayman legends offers, right? :unsure:

    Try Audiosurf. You can import your own tracks into it.
