There hasn't been a Guitar Hero game in years, and Rock Band downloadable tracks are going to be stopping pretty soon as well. For all intents and purposes, the genre is dead. Yeah, Rocksmith is still going, but it's not the same thing, it's more like an interactive teaching tool then a game. It's not all that different from Math Blaster or the Jump Start games really.

Yeah, I got interested in rock/metal music and guitar in general because of Guitar Hero. It's what inspired me to start getting interested in the real thing, I wanted more 'challenge' than just bashing buttons that pop up on the screen. Though, watching my grandma's old recording of a Chuck Berry concert is what made me really want to get up on stage and be a 'musician.'

Rocksmith is pretty sweet. I use it as a practice tool (the scale and chord minigames are addicting as ****).

The only good GH was the first GH. I enjoyed them. I still enjoy them. I see them as nothing more than games. The people who totally take them hardcore do annoy me though. Or at least did annoy me.

People still play Guitar Hero and Rock Band? They didn't just spring up recently... Anyways they are sort of fun for a little while, particularly if you are playing the game with a group of people. I can't see the point of just chiling by yourself, playing a fake plastic guitar with 4/8 buttons for hours on end. Seems boring.

Rocksmith is cool though, because you actually use a real guitar. It really isn't like Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but it's not like I have anything against either.

You're an idiot if you think anyone believes they're good at guitar because they can beat "One" on the hardest setting. Guitar Hero made a lot more people pick up a guitar, than it did drive people away.

Hell, the first one got me back into guitar.

Well, to be fair there was always that "one guy" who would develop the giant guitarist-ego after he got really good at the game (of course I'm talking 9th graders so it made perfect sense). Though for the rest, I'll have to agree.


This reminds me of an old Guitar World article I read years ago when GH1 first came out. It stated that while many guitar players and elitists felt that GH was a "substitute" for guitar and said that it would keep kids from wanting to learn real guitar, it was still better to have kids "jamming" to classic rock songs than sitting on their asses watching Hannah Montana.

What it also mentioned is that future guitar players would probably be admitting to getting their start/interest in learning and playing real guitar, from Guitar Hero. Which is surprisingly how it's appearing to be today.

I remember guitar hero was a gigantic scam if you where planning on reselling it. Gamestop would give you like 15 bucks for the game and controllers which together was like +100

I remember a lot of articles to that effect. I just never understood the mindset of a lot of guitarists who thought that GH was just blasphemous. It's a video game that features guitar parts...lol

Enter Jack White.

He had a really publicly anti-guitar game attitude for awhile. I always thought that was prickish.

Most famed guitarists praised it for giving the guitar more attention.

Fairly certain Guitar Hero 5 had some White Stripes song on it.

My contempt for Jack White increases.

Well Jack White has always seemed like a prick.

One of the latest versions, 'Rocksmith', does use the real thing, so I'm guessing that it works as both as an introduction to the instrument and also as a teaching aid to learning how to play the instrument.

Picked up a real guitar after playing Expert mode was too easy/boring. If only I spent those 4 years playing GH on a real guitar though..

Rocksmith, as I understand it, is meant to be a direct teaching tool. It's not a game as much as a method of learning guitar.

Well one problem is that the game has a basic controller shaped like a guitar, but a real guitar has strings and frets. Anything that has strings and frets tend to be harder to play than just a simple controller with buttons to push.
