Otto's Irresistible Dance was a lot of fun in dungeons. Was a nice feature of the DDO game.

Actually my favorite DDO combo was what I called disco inferno, Firewall and then Otto's or Disco Ball.

Liked 3, 4, 5 and 6 than the others but surprised you didn't included L2's "Cotton eyed Joe" .

Also, and I may be biased, but I like GW's thriller better.

I'm probably a bit biased but in my opinion Guild Wars has the best collection of dances of any game I've played. I'm partial to monk dances personally.

'Liltawen' means dancer in elvish
There's the FF11 DNC which you didn't mention.
In STO there's the klingon Mubarak which is Tai-Chi.
By and large western dancing just isn't magickal enough. I'm waiting for someone to come up with something really interesting.(I study Bharathanatyam from S. India).

Wow, that DDO looks like it could be lot of fun.

And I was about to complain about the lack of TR love, when I saw the bonus note pointing to my own video that I was going to offer up as an example :) (@1:15 you can see the pole dance emote which was obviously a dev-only dance... until the game was in its last few months & they released it as an item drop :D)

Anarchy Online is fantastic for dancing--because you can script together a series of dances and emotes to create your own dance that could go on for however long you wrote the script for.

SWG has to go at the top of the list. If you've ever watched a highly coordinated group of entertainers do an entire routine using flourishes and bandflos.... It's amazingly impressive.

I like STO's robot dance, but thats just me.

It seems alot of the dances are ones that WoW did and others saw that and liked it, and went to the source material and did their own takes on it.

@xyna031

"I'm giving the nod to Guild Wars here because it pre-dates the male Blood Elves' dance in The Burning Crusade by several months. Also, I hate elves."

You read the article, right?

Sorry for the snark... really out of it this morning...

Is this the part where I point out that the music playing during the "jig" is actually a reel?

This Guild Wars dance compilation is actually one of my favorites ever (INC-Frosty Dance Video 7): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOoCKDtPFbM
