I turn on the TV and see this RockBand Tournament. These people were talking about how great of "musicians" these ass holes are. Don't get me wrong it's fun to be inside BestBuy or something and go play RockBand with some stranger, and then rub in his/her face that you pwned them at some silly video game you don't even play. BUT COME ON!!! Why spoil the sacred term of musician with a game that only requires hand-to-eye coordination and a sense of rhythm.

It's not incest, but it's not masturbation.
It'd be closer to incest than masturbation, but I don't think there's a word for it.

Who cares? If the people like the game, and consider themselves musicians, let them dream.

I saw a thing on VH1 Classic called Rock Band 2 The Stars and these people were competing to be in a "band" with Sebastian Bach and Alice Cooper. They would play against each other and one guy's team got completely dominated. So in the interview afterwards he said, "It was tough because they had a couple great guitarists." I agree it's fun to play but some people take it too seriously.

lol those people are idiots. They aren't musicians and never will be. It's like me using wireless internet near an apartment and mooching someones unprotected connection and calling myself a 1337 h4ckz0r. It's ridiculous.
#12
With all due respect for the term "musician", those are the only two things really required to make music with a stringed or keyboard instrument, instrument itself notwithstanding because following their logic the controller is a musical instrument. Hell, you don't even need a sense of rhythm to play, but it helps you sound good. So does a trained ear and knowledge of theory, but again it's not required.
Do I think they're musicians for playing the game? No, but the point needed to be made that making music essentially takes good hand-eye coordination and a sense of rhythm as minimum requirements.

The term "musician" implies that you have mastered (or on the way to mastering) music. Anyone can play chords, or mash buttons. There is no soul in silly video games.

Which means that they are making music, and are therefore a musician.

What's even worse is that people get Unwarrented Self-importance from playing real guitars (often horribly) and talking down to people who play something else.

Well what else were they supposed to say? "It was tough because they had a couple great video game plastic instrument players"?

It's like any game tournament. If two teams play eachother in Team Fortress 2, do you get offended over them saying "The other team had some good Engineers" just because they're not real engineers?

Come on guys,I've never seen so much whining in a thread...

These shows are built like a parody or something of that nature,Not something to be taken seriously...sort of like wrestling.Some of the people who plays these games take it alittle too far...but if you were really good at a game and were invited to some contest would'nt you go?


**** people and their having fun right?....RIGHT?

Fine, I won't call myself a musician anymore. Rather, I will now refer to myself as a knight of sonic royalty. Yeah, let's see them take that, bitches.
