Use the searchbar. I always hated it when people told people that when I started here, but god there's only so many GH threads you can take.

I like guitar hero, as a game, to play once in a while, I havent tried Rockband

rockband is more fun than guitar hero, but the guitar controller is weird because the buttons are actually flat...
#6
Rockband is fun as hell. Guitar hero isn't even half of what rockband is.


Literally, it's only 1/4 of it.

rockband's great if you have friends. if you don't have friends, go with guitar hero.
If man is 5, if man is 5, if man is 5,
then the Devil is 6, then the Devil is 6, then the Devil is 6, the Devil is 6,
And if the Devil is 6,

then God is 7, then God is 7, then God is 7

I've played guitar hero at various friends houses, it's pretty fun as a party game, but I think it would suck to play by yourself.

rock band isn't out here so I can't comment on how good it is, but the peripherals look better, although I've heard the guitar parts are way easier than guitar hero.

hope that helps.

Yah for fun

Nah to get super serial about about

The drums on Rockband are so much fun

Guitar Hero is so much fun and it is actually hard. Rock Band if fun to play with friends but all the songs are very easy for guitar. But drums on rock band are very fun to play but nothin like real drums really

Jesus Christ, ANOTHER one of these threads?

I'll sum it all up for you.

1) They're games

2) They aren't designed to replace the guitar

3) Anyone who disagrees and hates GH/RB because it's "not real guitar" is just trying to be a hardass.



I hate Rockband because it isn't a real band!

it actually helps with finger speed, and a little bit with coordination, but it wont be good to just rely on that for both of those...

Loved all 3 Guitar Heros (haven't played Rocks the 80s), waiting for Rock Band to be released in Europe. The drumset is probably the most fun in RB

They're fun videogames. It gets stupid when people compare it to real guitar-playing. I mea, you never see anyone complaining about flight simulator, or railway simulator or sth.

rockband guitar hero < real guitar talent

Rock Band is fun with friends, or if you have none, or none that can get to your house, the drums are insanely fun.

Guitar Hero is fun by yourself, so it's your call.
#22
they dont have rock band in europe? Its the EU, gotta get rid of it, the un is enough as it is...
#23
I don't like GH but I love ROCK BAND!!!!!!!!!!! Its just fun to get together with friends and play... Me and some of my friends made this crazy vid....

Guitar Hero is fun, but of course I still think playing real guitar is better. Like someone said, its a fun party game, but I can't imagine playing alone.

I havent played Rock Band, but I still voted in favour for it.
#27
search bar- awesome game, beats both of those. seriously, this has been done hundreds of times in the forums AND whenever they release news about the games

It's probably due to the NTSC to PAL conversion and doing the text for the main languages.

They are both pretty stupid, what ever happened to just playing a real instrument?
#30
i own both of them, their both alot of fun but rock band is definatly worth the extra money, when you have 3 friends its tremendous fun, and the drums are surprisingly realistic, im a guitar player but now i can actually play some more complicated drum stuff just from playing the game.

Play until she breaks up with you.

The most brutal band to ever exist is...

You should go like them...even if you don't like them.

What a great comparison

Playing real guitar is harmful to other people, better play guitar hero! Then I can brag about how good I am at it!

Uh, i play both.

Otherwise i wouldnt be on ultimate-GUITAR.com, which is a website for GUITAR players.

Most people who play the games play a real instrument.

Old analogy, but do you think Call Of Duty is stupid because you aren't fighting a real war?

EDIT: beaten to it

It was a joke, tit-face.


And real guitar is harmful to others. Case and point: Fall out Boy makes me want to kill infants.
