What do you guys think of the guitar hero and rockband games that have sprung up so fast in recent years? My personal belief is that they make these instruments looks way too easy, and less people are playing the real things because they think as long as they're good at the game, they don't need to bother with the real thing.

The ability to play drums in rockband was kind of fun minus the fact the kits were fragile as shit. Also about 4 years too late.

The most recent game like that I've seen is Rocksmith, and that uses real guitars.

Holy shit my time machine worked!


Also, Guitar Hero is fun. If you really care about it chasing people away from real instruments, you're an idiot

Uh.... You know the whole franchise is still going right? I mean Harmonix JUST released a new one for the xbox live arcade... plus dozens of less expensive spin offs that are still being made. The trend may be over, but that doesn't change the fact that 1. I'm just asking your damn opinions, and 2. they're still being made.

They really aren't, though. Rock Band Blitz wasn't even a "true" RB game.

And this


Also, Guitar Hero to a pretty large extent inspired me to play the real thing. My logic was, if it's fun enough to play it virtually, then it will be more fun to play it literally. And as it turns out, I was right.

since these games came out well after I had learned guitar I found them really difficult to play at first while my drummer in the band I was in at the time had no problem whatsoever which pissed me off to no end. Also, that was like 2006 dude

The whole reason I ended up buying a guitar in the first place was because I played guitar hero and rock band until my guitar-controller broke, and I was like "Well I'm way better at this game than anyone should ever allow themselves to become, I might as well go buy a real guitar and then I can play something other than Through The Fire and The Flames."

Do they still make these games even


They've officially stopped making Guitar Hero games. Rock Band however still releases weekly content and just released a new game last year.

Activision, once again, has over saturated their own series and killed it. Hopefully this will happen to Call of Duty soon, if it hasn't already.

Personally I think games like CoD have spawned numerous poseurs who think they're all that and a bag of chips even though they only kill virtually and are totally not navy seals. The same thing with GTA, kids should just throw that shit away and go out and actually do some real mass murdering.

And I'll bet you 90% who play Super Mario can't plumb for shit.

Sigh. It's a game. People who play guitar hero don't think they're rock stars, just like people who play Battlefield don't think they're soldiers. Get over your ****ing elitist self you asshole.
