Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be caught in the middle of an Earthquake? Well, now you can experience the... er... fun of an earthquake, without any of the danger. Can't see the video?

Zettai Zetsumei Toshi was a really interesting game. Although, I admit that it pushed the PS2 so hard that framerates occasionally went single-digit, so hopefully they can do a bit better this time. The second game in the series had similar problems trying to do floods, so I'm cautious about that, however.
Why would the Japanese pay to have a go on an earthquake simulator? I mean, surely they experience the real thing often enough don't they?
Its a bit like living in Deptford, and then paying to have a go on a sh*t hole simulator, or the Gordon Brown simulator that keeps taking your money but gives nothing in return.

You might as well ask why people spend money on driving games when they can just get into their cars. ZZT is really an adventure game in which the environment is a city being devastated by a natural disaster. The vibration thing in the video is just a tacked on gimmick to a pretty sound game.
