Yeah, no kidding. Then maybe those idiots who play Need for Speed would give that up and just go buy real race cars, and those FPS morons would just go buy real guns.
It's called a game. The idea is to be able to pick something up with a few friends and be able to have some fun. Until there's a record contract unlockable for beating Guitar Hero, gamers will buy games and musicians will buy instruments.
That being said, I really don't like all these single-band releases of Guitar Hero. The real strength in the previous titles came from the variety. If you get together 5 or 6 people to mess around with GH or Rock Band everyone could find at least one song they enjoyed. There aren't many bands where I'd even want to listen to their entire CD, let alone play through them as an entire game.
