Densha de Go!!
#1
Hi Friends,

While I'm still finishing my new layout and don't have any Plarail videos to share I thought I would make a post about playing the amazing Japanese train driving game Densha de Go!!

This is the latest version of this commuter train driving game that can be found in the Taito arcades in Japan and I had a chance to try it when I was there last year. I have never driven a real Japanese commuter train so I cannot make judgement on the realism but it seems pretty good to my untrained eye. The graphics are really great and the screens wrap around so you get a nice sense of immersion due to peripheral vision.

As you will see if you can bear to sit through the video of my game play - I'm pretty hopeless! haha  The key to winning is to go as fast as you can without breaking the speed limit and stop precisely at the right part of the platform when you come to the station. I think those passengers were not impressed by my style. Smile

There are plenty of familiar trains here like E231 and E235, 323 and 201.

Wow, very cool. I believe the games are supposed to be pretty accurate and some home versions of the games have special controllers. I have played some of them but only on the Wonderswan and Game Boy Color handhelds, never the console versions.

Actually I forgot to mention if you look at the photos of the inside of the cabin you will see to the left of the console there are some white gloves. There is also a jacket hanging behind the drivers seat (out of view). These are for the player that really wants to act like a professional driver.

Check out this photo I took of a real train driver and see what I mean:

As a game Densha de go is quite good. As a real driving simulator, it is quite lacking. But since it's advertised as a game, it's very good! Big Grin

Great game. Had a go twice when I went last year. Was able to just about get the stop right lol. Also have the original Densha de Go for Playstation and Shinkansen for PS2 that I picked up in 2015.
