** [[http://www.caranddriver.com/columns/the-pushrod-engine-finally-gets-its-due Push-rod (cam-in-block) Engines, themselves can be an example of this trope]], with General Motors achieving good results with the design. While power-per-liter is often spoken of as a reason for dual-overhead-cams, the push-rod engine is very space efficient, housing the camshaft in the core of the engine, and making up for fewer valves with higher displacement. This makes a push-rod engine a likely candidate for engine swaps, and their tendency for mass production from General Motors makes them very cost-effective. The Dodge Viper SRT even got variable valve-timing added to the engine design, showing a good future for the push-rod design. As of 2013, [[http://www.hotrod.com/how-to/engine/1212phr-variable-valve-timing-advantages/ Chrysler and General Motors implement VVT into their push-rod engines more prolifically]], to keep the engine format competitive, and further enhance desirability for engine swaps. It's not as flexible in valve train flexibility as DOHC but still makes a difference.

Added DiffLines:
** ''VideoGame/{{DanceDanceRevolution}}'', ''VideoGame/InTheGroove'', and ''VideoGame/PumpItUp'': Four or five directional foot panels and scrolling notes, with the same simplicity as the above rhythm games. And they're great for cardiovascular workout, too.

While it has received a number of interface enhancements, it has only had three changes ever done to its core gameplay: the addition of two new buttons, the option to play with the turntable on the left, and the addition of "hold"-type notes. Other than that, the simple whack-a-mole-esque formula of "notes fall down, hit the right buttons when they reach the red line" has not changed in almost ''twenty years''. ** ''VideoGame/PopNMusic'' is even simpler, foregoing a turntable for two more buttons. It has been around almost as long as ''beatmania''.
