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

Right, because there isn't any rhythm involved at all, is there?

Coming from a guitarist of 5 years and bassist of 1, GH helped me a tad with keeping in time, for drummers it helps a lot if you get the full kit for RB as that's practically an entire kit.


And this, Activision, is what happens when you don't innovate at all, I will enjoy seeing this happen to CoD soon enough.

Oh man, they're finally getting rid of Triangle Hero. I was getting tired of hearing people say how awesome that game is.

The next biggest thing, getting Parappa the Rapper on Microsoft's Kinect. LOL!

Everyone that jumps on the "I hate guitar hero bandwagon" has NO friends what so ever, and I will stick to that. So I don't think you should feel so superior for being too cool for the game. Because the beauty of the guitar hero games is they are great to just sit around and play when you've got a big group of people over and you are all drinking. They don't need strategy and planning. In fact, that's the last thing a group of my drunk friends needs!! They are just something fun to do that pretty much anyone can enjoy, gamer or not. If you don't understand the appeal of the games, go out, find some friends and have a few beers. Be sure to invite a few women over that have never played a game in their life. You'll get it then.

That being said like any other game they get boring after a while and the franchise was certainly wearing out its welcome. Plus, at a certain point it's no longer worth buying a new game just for a few more songs. They really don't need to make any more.

Same here. Since I actually know how to play a little guitar the game was completely unnatural to me and awkward. I never liked it.

Why don't people, for instance, learn how to drive a car instead of playing GT5?

Also, no they're not You don't need any musical skill to play rock band or guitar hero, just coordination and speed..

It was a fun fad for a while, waaaaaay to many different releases of the game, should have been more incorperated into each release.
