Densha de GO! Hilarious train riding "game"

While the Japanese may not like Loco Roco, they love the Densha de GO! series. And who wouldn't? By looking at the trailer, it appears that the game simulates the experience of riding one of Japan's great train lines. Yes... you heard me correctly. There's nothing I like to do more on my daily commute on the train than to play a game pretending that I'm on a train. Exciting.

If you want some hardcore train riding action, take your pick: there are multiple entries in this series, each focusing on a different train line. Gotta catch 'em all? You can buy either Osaka Kanjousen, Toukaidosen or Chuuousen Hen for $40 each. Or not.
