back in the day I would just play index stream files constantly, didnt start actually being not 12 years old and wanting to improve until i wanna say like mid 2016.

I used to play stepmania files with no jumps enabled, and on judge 1 cause i didnt care, way back in 2007. needless to say I was an idiot and tbh probably still am

edit: story time, back in around 2009, during the FFR blackout when the site literally disappeared, I somewhat lost interest in rhythm games... then one day, I remember seeing a friend in computer class one time, playing FFR on lightdarkness, shoutouts to anyone who remembers that old mirror... im like yo wtf i didnt know FFR was still around, then he told me about the mirror, then I asked him to play vertex beta and he was like "uhh do you mean vRofl?" and im just like nah, the regular one, and he did pretty good on it from what I remember.

I wonder if he still plays, i doubt it but maybe

edit 2: thinking more about it, I maaaay have found FFR because of myspace... remember the old band widgets http://www.flashflashrevolution.com/widgets/ , people used to stick those on their myspace page and whatnot, I feel like i probably found the game via one of a friends myspace but I have no idea

edit 3:


shiit, it might have also been cause of this... back when I was younger I was on newgrounds constantly, playing flash games, trying to level up on the site.. I remember in elementary school id come home and make sure to vote on the 5 daily portal votes to get my xp points lol



apparently I only got to level 9 tho lol, even so it was fun times.. I remember being super into the audio portal, and loved dimrain47, paragonX, and all those other obscure newgrounds artists lol... good times (I actually have an animation I made that won "turd of the week" on newgrounds because it was like 1.47/5 rating lul, but I sure as hell am not gonna post my username, my forum posts from back then are waaaay too cringy, realizing it now it shows my global rank in the pic but i doubt that lets you find anything and even if it does I don't really care that 10 year old me was an idiot its sort of to be expected way back then)

Saw friends play Stepmania sometime in 2007, paid it little mind. Then played the widget version of FFR that Children of Bodom had on their myspace to promote the upcoming Blooddrunk album, which made me interested in flash rhythm games. Played a similar one on facebook, then I remembered Stepmania. Played that for almost 2 years then when visiting my parents in Feb 2011, then while using a computer that didn't have Stepmania installed, I remembered FFR, and joined.

Back in 2009, I came across Tap Tap Revenge, which was basically a 3k VSRG that I played on my iTouch. Unfortunately, the game was rather prone to dropping taps, which I found frustrating, so I started looking for alternatives. Found FFR, and here I am still more than a decade later.

I don't remember how far back it was but i got interested in ddr but was embarrassed to even try it, saw a friend playing stepmania and i decided to try that and enjoyed playing it, then i found out about FFR from my friend when i asked him what he was playing cause it didn't look like stepmania, i also had a myspace and would always go to SGX's profile just to play the songs :) and thats how i wound up here since 2008 :)

Funny enough I got here when FFR was in it's lite form with a limited amount of songs. I was playing on my cousins' old computer when I saw the game, it was XP and I played it for the first time.

I was still a guest at the time playing one handed and then when I got my first computer which was a gateway desktop, I played it constantly. Then made an account 7+ years ago. Funny enough half of those years was one handed and today I'm spread DFJK.

To think all it took was a trip to my cousins' house for me to start playing the game for the first time.

Technically I came from DDR and Guitar Hero which I never actually tried at. My first keyboard based rhythm game was FFR. Reason for coming is cause a friend and I watched a streamer that was ~lvl75 (would play a song or two in-between rounds of a game) and we thought it looked fun.

wanted to play a rhythm game. friend who doesn't play knew of this site in 2007 and showed me. before this i dabbled in scgmd games on kong and frequency/amplitude on ps2. ffr remains my main rhythm game basically leaving sm and etterna untouched

Re: Which Rhythm Game are you from? and how did you get here
 
i guess my first rhythm game was parappa, but i don't consider playing the same demo stage over and over again as something to come from, so ddr was my first actual rhythm game.

my brother started playing ffr in 2004 and i noticed it as an interesting "ddr on the computer". i mindlessly played some stuff one-handed and just kinda never left, somehow learned to use both hands and learned that you don't need to use the arrow keys. here we are.

Played Amplitude on the PS2 back in 2004, thought it was a cool game but hard when I got to expert mode. XD

Then I started playing some DDR at my local arcade for a bit then decided I wanted to use my fingers to play. Computer at the time didn't have admin rights to install stuff so I had to settle for what I could find, and alas, FFR.

Re: Which Rhythm Game are you from? and how did you get here
 
My first rhythm game was Stepmania in September 2004 right when the DDR 8th mix came out. I remember introducing the game to irl friends, but I ended up being the only one that kept playing. I found FFR while looking up songs for Stepmania. That is because FFR used to have a Simfile Database which is no longer here.

When O2Jam came out in February 2005, it shifted my attention away from Stepmania/FFR for a bit until I got stuck at lvl36 because I had to pay to get rings for a challenge. That singlehandedly led me to quit O2Jam, but I still played songs once in a while. I remember playing FFR as a guest for nearly a year at first and eventually joined in July 2005. Back in the day, I was playing Tales of Phantasia and thought Dhaos was a cool boss name so, I swapped it into Xhaos. Eventually, I figured Xhaos looked kinda similar to ThaoR and I didn't like it so, I spent some time thinking at something a bit more unique and went for Hakulyte. That is why Hakulyte is technically my 2nd account. I was watching Naruto at that point, but I was also part of a guild in Ragnarok Online which ultimately led me toward this. Guild master was Zabuza and I was like the coleader, but "Haku" was taken so, I went with Hakulyte and kept that for FFR as well.

Anyway back in 2004~2008, I kept rotating Stepmania/FFR/O2Jam all the time until Osu came out. I got top 200 in the osu circle mode using a mouse and then quit when people started playing with tablets and crushing leaderboards. I wasn't particularly good, it's just that the level back in 2008 was a lot lower. I also broke 3 mouse in that process and it made me not want to come back (spinners are mouse breakers). I tried Osumania and despite liking LNs in O2Jam, I didn't like them in Osumania. I kept getting misses all the time when releasing keys and it never clicked. I guess I can only do this with screencut or a slower speed and all the scrolling space threw me off. It didn't matter if I could AAA everything else, I felt like that ruined my fun overall. Somewhere along these times I also played Audition, Bandmaster and Guitar Hero 3, but didn't particularly get anything worth mentioning in these games.

When it comes to Stepmania, I made it in the top 50 on stepmaniaonline.net but ended up slowly moving more toward FFR. Note that this top 50 is also based on something similar to grandtotal. Anyway, I prefered how FFR had a static song list and technically speaking a "end game". I really liked how I didn't need to download anything and how I could quit and come back at any point easily.

I also played a ton of non-rhythm games and rhythm games for me have always been like some "side game" to play between 2 games. I don't play instruments and I'm not particularly into music either. You would think maybe I'm more on the coding/developing side of things, but that's not really the case either. I just wanted to see FFR slowly get rid of its flaws one by one and hopefully eventually reach the point where I can't think of anything that can be improved.

Maplestory has a rhythm game in it or is there something here that I'm missing?
