The Good:
Got kids into Black Sabbath etc rather than the Jonas Bros

The Bad:
Made kids think they are amazing because they can press buttons and taking up guitar because of it. Its a bit like someone scoring a killstreak on Halo or Call of Duty and going to war purely because of it.

i believe it severely limits kids music tastes. for instance i tell kids who love metallica cause they heard it in the game to check out bands like megadeth but they instantly tell me that metallica is much better without even listening, and tell me the same things about pantera, machine head, mastadon. and when they talk about guitaring, they think you have to shred to be good, which can be a factor, but they think that someone like stevie ray vaughan sucks he doesnt play as fast as paul gilbert
#10
lol i suck as at it :P but seriously though it inspired one of my neighbour kids to play guitar (or it was me with my divine skills ^^) but either way if it isnt played by complete game freaks i think its for the good of rock music, unless they all end up as dragonforce fans:P (no offense to real DF fans^^)

Who cares about Guitar Hero?? Yeah, it may have caused guitars/basses/drums to become stupid ****ing trends, but it's a fun game to play with friends.

Same. I never liked music until i played GH in 07'. I hardly play it any more because i learned that you could waist time on that or play real guitar. I also realized how many people in my school are tools when it comes to that game.

I just don't like guitar hero because what it has done to kids, such as make them that them playing on expert will contribute what-so-ever to there legt guitar playing.

What I hate about it is that kids who have no taste in music/have no musical ability decide to buy a LP knockoff and play 3 chords, then form a band 3 days later.

great point. no offense to newcomers, at all. But I do dislike it when kids have there cheap strat knock-offs, out of tune, can play a few notes, cant hold a pick without dropping it, tell me they can play shred.
#23
I can't stand guitar hero, and I hate all of these little kids that play it!!!


Because Rock Band is so much better

Is this an american thing, because I have never met anyone who thinks they can play guitar because they can play TTFAF on expert.

Actually, GH helped me improve my guitar skills, by helping with finger strength, and the ability to stretch my fingers. And I actually played GH2 last night, and played my favorite songs on Expert.

Im not quite sure, but I will tell you right now, I have met multiple people who think they kick ass, and play eal guitar, because they can play guitar hero

Definitely. I feel ashamed to be a teenager because of it. You won't believe how many kids I know have no clue what an arpeggio is. They wonder where the shiny buttons are on the fretboard.

Finger strength from pushing down on coloured buttons? I don't buy it. Maybe the stretching thing but you have to draw a line.

EVERYONE in my school thinks they can and it drives me insane, apart from that they only know any of the songs from the games from a band... i had on a black sabbath tee shirt the other day nd some kid was like "I LOVE BLACK SABBATH!! THEIR MY FAVORITE BAND EVER!", so i asked them their fav sabbath song nd he just said that he only knew the ones that were on gh
I pressed her thigh and death smiled

you sir, have no idea what you are talking about, there is literally a 20-30 member group at my school of guitar hero kids that are "bad ass" and "could" play real guitar if they wanted to.

wow. that looks crazy in formula form in the quote thingy!

i hate GH. Mainly cos all my friends think its so cool, and i'm the only one who actually plays real guitar.

Its got kids into older bands. But the majority of them only like the songs that are on guitar hero

If a kid who has been playing GH asks if you've got a certain artist on your mp3 player, or if you can play a certain artist on real guitar, you can bet that they'll say the song thats on GH.
thats from experience. and it pisses me off

GH is not to blame for that, though. Blame stupid people.
