#layout: post title: "MAX 300"

MAX 300 was the first[^sakura] level 10 song I cleared at the arcade. I learned to play DDR with my older brother; I distinctly recall the sensation of finally being better than him at a game---whether it was Descent, StarCraft, anything, he always had such a lead.

I started DDR a bit later than him and had some catching up to do, but eventually crossed the level 9 mark before he did. It turned out rhythm games would be a good place for me to excel.

He lives overseas now, and at some point got an L-TEK DDR pad. I was a bit envious, but felt the shipping expense---far worse to Australia than the US---was too hard to justify. Pandemic closing the gym made it muuuuuch more palatable, and plus it'd mean I'd get to play DDR with my brother again in a way.

It's been a very good way to get fit again, and hitting old milestones again is a lot of fun. I've done some other harder ones already, but today was the day for clearing MAX 300 again. My scores are much better than my 13-year-old self's, even though my endurance isn't.

MAX 300 score (87.23%)
