I live in a dorm, and there are guys above me. They play rockband/guitar hero drums literally 6-8 hours a day. It sounds like a tribal dance, and it just resonates through the floor and walls. My roommate and I are incredibly distracted, along with a few other people on my hall. We've talked to the RA about it, but he doesn't take it seriously and just laughs.

I don't want to be a d!ck and go up to their room and ask them to stop, but it has gotten incredibly aggravating..

Go up to their room and tell them whats going on. Don't be a dick about it, just put it out "Look, I get you like this game, but the drumming and clicking can be heard on the floor below you. Could you guys stop rockin out so hard? Maybe take it to a practice room."

Yeah, I guess I'll just wait until the other affected are available then go up to talk to them.

If it's throughout the day, nothing. If it's at night time, talk to them but don't be a dick about it. But in dorms, you can't really expect people to be quiet all the time, it's not gonna happen.

If it's at night, try to tell them nicely that it's late and you can hear them downstairs. If it's during the day, you probably need to suck it up.

Of course, I'm coming at this from the other side of the situation, where I lived above a bunch of pretentious sluts last year who started banging on my floor with a broom while I was playing Guitar Hero at 5 PM on a Saturday.

Did you talk to your own RA or the RA of the guys above you? If your own RA doesn't care, you can talk to theirs, and vice versa. Both of them have grounds to talk to the guys, just as a courtesy measure and so you could remain anonymous if you're afraid of being "that guy".

Get some booze, invite some more people and go join them!

This, but turn up and be really awkward and pushy. Every time they start playing go up and say "Oh hi guys, can I join? I really love this game!" then randomly start spewing little known facts about bands and stuff.

Talking to their RA is a good idea..he's probably more with it than mine is.

It's not insanely late at night, but it goes on until 11:30. I go to bed around 10:45 since I get up at 6 to swim..it does make it harder to fall asleep..

Go talk to them. Honestly people in dorms tend to be pretty friendly, just go up there and let them know it is a little distracting and maybe they could play a little less. Honestly though, a dorm is not really the best place to rely on studying quietly.

edit: For example, if someone came to my room and said I was playing my music too loudly or something, I'd be happy to turn it down to make it more reasonable.

I'd talk to them, straight up, without being a dick. Then I'd report that RA for being an asshole.
#18
Get real drums and do the same.

Really though, just talk to them?

Yeah, unless it's quiet hours, they can be as loud as they want. You know there's other and better places to study/get work done than your dorm room, right?

Wanted to say the same thing. It's fun. Also, great for parties where half the people don't play an instrument.

TS, you have to march right up there and tell it to them how it is.


...And that means with a guitar in hand, play Through The Fire And Flames right in front of them, then throw it in their face and call them fags.
#26
Like everyone else said, just talk to them, if at an unreasonable time of course, maybe come to some kind of compromise if you really need to study hard, perhaps they can play it with drums for a few hours, then disconnect the drums and try to keep it down a little.

Alternatively, does your college/uni have a library? Usually when i need to get something done i go down to there with a few friends and have a study session.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.
#27
flatter them,write a anonymus letter something that says "your supreme godliness of rock is too strong for the world to handle,i can hear you in my room,everyone can hear you a mile away,please be more quiet playing guitar hero,you gods of shred" and if it continues then talk to them personnelly....aint my problem so i dont really care,lol.
#28
Tell them to grow the **** up and play a real god damned instrument, and that mashing 5 huge ****ing buttons with a "whammy bar" doesn't make you a professional. Also that only 12 year old emo fags play Guitar Hero/Rock Band thinking it's just like actual guitar and that they're REALLY rockstars. Proceed to beat them over with plastic instrument and break game disc in half.

And I bet every single one of them thinks they're going to become famous for playing the game.

Wtf would that accomplish... stop talking


Act mature and just ask them to stop, or send them an anonymous letter to their school mailbox.
