Guitar Hero actualy started as an arcade game of the same nature several years ago, as part of Konami's "Bemani" series of games. This of course includes their original Beatmania game which is akin to DJing, Dance Dance Revolution which is the most famous of the bunch, Guitar Hero which has been adapated in thise case, and there's also a drumming one where you actually have a full digital kit you sit at to play. Additionally there's Para Para Paradise, which uses motion sensors to pick up motions you do with your hands/arms Wild stuff.
