I have a real drum set.
I have GH3.

Im not going to spend 200.00 on the rock band kit. Plus, singing is lame in that game.

I played the Rock Band demo with my brother at Best Buy and it was not as good as I expected it to be.

I'm still getting it though.

Rock Band easily. FULL studio albums to be downloadable, better set list, four times the instruments. Gh3 was a disappointment as it was pretty much GH2 with new songs, who the hell wants to spend $100 for that.

Frets on Fire remains the king of guitar games.

i think rock band is the guitar hero for people who actualy play instruments
EDIT: and are too drunk to play them at the time of playing this game

10 fret guitar for soloing
^ applies to bass as well
Drums <cool feature
Vocals<ok i agree thats really lame but w/e

It's the same 1-5 frets, the higher ones are just meant to make you think you're playing a solo more like a "solo".

Excuse my naive question but, what the hell is rock band?
The creators of the original Guitar Hero's left the main company and made Rock Band. It's basically Guitar Hero but with all instruments and a better song list.

I dont see why people even play GH. Frets on Fire is FREE, and you can download any song you want.

Have fun paying $90 for My Chemical Romance
#20
I actually tried to download Frets on Fire just to make new songs with the custom editor... BUT the Mac version is a giant glitch.

guitar hero's song list is definitely better....and i think vocals and drums would be kinda lame
#22
That game is just like guitar hero if you don't buy the drum and mic.

I'd rather play GH. It's got a better tracklist.

$100?!
You mean you can't just buy the game by itself and use the GH2 controller?

Or I can not pay anything and play AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, and countless other bands that wont go near a guitar video game.

I don't play guitar for the sole reason of making money off it. I consider guitar and video games (yes that includes Guitar Hero) to be equal pastimes of mine.

I have no problem with playing both guitar games and real guitar, it's not like you're not going to buy an NBA game just because you play basketball outside with your pals.

I just dont see why anyone who's really into guitar would spend $100-200 on it when they could put that towards their rig. A lot of the GH kids are the ones with Squiers and whatnot, what gives?

Rock Band's song list is no where's near as good as Guitar Hero 3's.

You can use the Explorer controller on GH3.

The only decent song I really want to play in GH3 is the first 30 seconds of Cliffs of Dover, and Knights of Cydonia. Rock Band has a lot of GH3's songs, plus FULL ALBUMS.

GH3 has One. Rock Band has One, Enter Sandman, and at least one full studio album. Plus other cool **** like Coheed.

It doesnt have One. Only GH3 has One. Rock Band has enter sandman. Read the set list thing in the news section today.

Seriously, I've played both, and all parts (guitar included) in Rock Band just seem...(can't really find the right word) poorly put together. You have to be 100% spot on, there's no real way to see if you've actually hit or missed a note, and you lose much more quickly. Now I'm all for the game being harder, but it's just frustrating. Plus the drums are so small that it's not too hard to miss them.

Wheres the "I'm a conceited douchbag with a superiority complex so I'm going to make fun of a video game" option on the poll? How will I show the world what a cool and likable person I am by ragging on people who enjoy a simple game for not investing years into a real instrument?

Rock Band doesn't have One.

Rock Band definitely has the potential to have a better song list, but as of right now, I like Guitar Hero's list better. There are a ton of songs on it that I would never listen to, but are still incredibly fun to play on it.
