It unleashed creativity. If you stuck to it discipline.
I've seen it first hand. Computer science majors, turn music major. Now music teachers. I have say Guitar Hero played a part in this.
I have yet to play a song or a piece that didn't demand the discipline to play it over and over, for hours on end. Even after you have mastered it.
Sad to see it go.

Wait a trendy trend trended out? What are the chances?

So does playing a real guitar?

That's my biggest beef with guitar hero. Yeah, cool game and all, but it is just a game. You time button presses. Guitar hero is as good of an approximation to playing guitar as running in place on a power pad pretending to jump hurdles in your living room is to being in the olympics.

I'm never a huge fan of "It gets people into it because they don't have to try"

Erm... you could pretty much say that about any video game. But let's have fun with it anyhow.

Why don't you learn to be a better driver instead of playing driving video games?
Why don't you play football instead of playing a football video game?
Why don't you break out the board games instead of playing board game video games?
Why don't you study a physics book instead of playing physics-based video games?

Etc, etc, etc.

You play video games because they are fun and entertaining, not because they help you be better at life.

Love it,like it,or hate it, My hot ex-girlfriend got me into it, and now my 6 and 2 year olds have a blast with me playing all kinds of stuff. Maybe if they had Saxophone hero I would have never pawned mine off after high school lol

Guitar hero != playing an instrument.

Where did he say that? Not to mention the fact that if you use pro-mode for keyboard or guitar, it is.

I wish people would stop going on about how rhythm games and playing an instrument are not the same - I have literally never heard anyone suggest that was true. They are, however, fun. Which is the point.

He said he may not have pawned his instrument long ago if he had the game then. I don't know pro mode, but anything using a quantized rhythm and 5 buttons is going to be an approximation of a real instrument.

I never said it wasn't fun, or that the point is to get good at an instrument!

I was meaning that different people have different styles of wanting to learn and continue doing something. Ex. Goofing off and playing gh or rb was and is more entertaining and interactive to me than staring at sheet music and sitting in a boring band class. Thus I've been contemplating getting the fender pro guitar when it comes out in march
