It's just for losers that can't play real instruments and want to pretend to be cool.

Not that people claim to be good at guitars by playing GH.. but they tend to have this smugness about them like they think they are.

Reminds me of the South Park episode.

In the end, it's just mashing 5 or 6 (don't even know) plastic colored buttons that looks like a toy I had when I was 4 years old.

*Sigh*

Why would you not want to pick up a real instrument and learn to play on your own? I used to play Rock Band/Guitar Hero but now I just feel stupid with this little plastic toy hitting buttons. It can't compare to the real effect of learning how to play a song on the actual instrument. I'm never one to trivialize what people like but this is definitely not my thing.

Not everyone that plays Rock Band or Guitar Hero goes about raving something like...
Quote:
OMG LULZ. I CAN PLAY REAL MUSIX ON MAH ROKBANDZ! IM SO KEWL!!11!!!oneoneone!!111.
I've been around musicians my whole life (I'm 17), and I've been making music for as long as I've been able to hold things in my hands. I play guitar, bass, drums, clarinet, oboe, flue, bassoon, and sax, and pretty much any variation you can come up with of one of those instruments.

We had a huge party the last day of school where a bunch of kids from the schoolbandclass brought in Rock Band stuff and an Xbox 360 and we hooked it up to a projector and our PA system and played Rock Band the whole day. All of the kids that brought stuff in played at least some kind of wind instrument or percussion in band, and pretty much anyone else that showed up played at least something.

We played it all day long and it was really fun. That's the important thing. We didn't play to go, "HeRp DerP DErp, We'RE so L33ts cauz we play rokband so We Li3k know how to playz real muzics." We just had fun pressing the stupid plastic buttons.

Sorry, I don't mean to rag on just you specifically, it's just tiring how people keep complaining about Rock Band/Guitar Hero because people that play it "aren't making real music." No crap, Sherlock. We realize it just as much as people that play Counterstrike realize that they aren't actually stopping terrorists from blowing stuff up or taking hostages. We're all just trying to have fun clicking buttons.

Thank god. Audiosurf and beathazard are the only music games I play and probably will be the only music games I ever play. Indie games FTW.

There's more to just mashing buttons to guitar hero. Hey I can play drums and guitar and i play guitar hero. derp derp. GH and RB are some of the best games to play with a group of people.

Anyways, I played the second and third one, and they were fun for a while. I enjoyed the game more with a big group of people, it would provide the background music and a game.

What is it like 60$ for the game then 120$ for the special guitar shaped controller?

The game has no subsentence to it, people listen to the same songs over and over again mastering the same 3 minute long button mashing sequence.

That and there are more guitar hero games then there are call of duty games...at least I think.
