What are your feelings about Guitar Hero?

For me it was influential in getting me to start playing guitar, I always wanted to,
I just didn't think I could do it. After playing GH2 on expert for a while, i decided to pick up the real thing. Now GH3 is taking a back seat to the 6 string, but I still love playing with a plastic controller occasionally.

As a video game, it's about average. All the kids who can brag about playing *insert song here* on expert can just fuck off though.
#3
i play both. though i played guitar for like 6 and a half years before knowing what guitar hero even was let alone play it. I got aerosmith a couple days ago and it is one of the best games i have ever played. very fun.
Gear for now:
Ibanez RG370DX
Line 6 Spider III 30
Ibanez Weeping Demon Wah

It's fun with your friends occasionally.

But I would rather play a harmonized lead with some friends.

great game. Too bad musicians are soo snobbish and elitist when it comes to it.


And to people saying they like it : don't feel that you have to justify it, it's just a game like every other.

More fun than guitar hero, if you got it on the 360 that is.

Other than that...idk...its fun.

It's pretty fun but I can't do any higher than medium.

Yes, musicians somehow feel threatend by plastic.
Seriously, musicians who say that people who play Guitar Hero suck and also that kids brag about being able to play a song on something are complete douches and ****ers.
#13
very addictive i didn't stop until i could beat every song on expert now i'm pretty much done with it though
#14
TS told my story. I think its great fun indeed, real time killer when you just want to play something alot easier than the guitar. But I hate the fanboys though. I know a guy who's like that and he's so annoying at times when he blabbers on about it.

He also says he plays guitar to people when the only thing he barely knows is the beginning of the intro to Nothing Else Matters and intro riff to Mississippi Queen.

What's even worse is that he told me he actually tried Cliffs of Dover on the guitar.

So basically, I love the game, but I hate what it does to some people, it's just sad really.

those kids that brag about beating songs on expert bug the hell out of me, then they think that they could do just as good on a real guitar if they "tried"

Personally, I like Rockband more. Better songs, graphics, and playing drums is alott of fun. But its pretty fun to play with other people, like a party game. Altho people who bragg about being good at it are pretty annoying.
#19
to me GH and rock band are hardly comparable.
the guitar in GH is amazing.
the guitar in rock band is meh.
the drums in rock band are the best we've played so far...
and that seems to be the reason people say:

I don't know why, but I hate it how people only like songs because they're on Guitar Hero. For example the other day there was a guy listening to One on his iPod and I tried to start a conversation with him about Metallica. His reply was "Oh no, all their other stuff sucks, One is just awesome" or something like that. Annoys me.

It's probably just a satiracal comment referring towards the South Park episode.
#27
ah well i wouldn't know, i've never seen all of that one.
or seen much of south park at all.
i don't care much for it, it's funny @ times tho.

I have been playing for about a little under 1.5 years, and Cliffs of Dover is too hard for me. (No, I didn't hear the song through GH, unlike the guy I know. ) I haven't really tried playing it though, so with some practice, I guess I could get it down after a while.

I can play bits of it though, and to me he just sounded retarded when he told me he tried to play the song, simply because he doesn't know anything on guitar.
#30
I've been playing guitar hero for like a year now and I beat every single guitar hero game on expert but I absolutely suck at the real thing and no I don't get perfect on every song, just two songs.
#31
guitar hero is the gayest piece of crap ever invented. you get nowhere playing a piece of freaking plastic. pick up a real guitar.
I've never had a message for anyone in my entire life. Except maybe to give out my room number. - Bon Scott
#32
They say there's a legend that they stole pieces of the guitar from GH guitar into the new RB2 guitars so that now it has the buttons of RB and the stummer of GH.


...And the rent was way HARDCORE!!!

It's a fun game and a lot of people (actual guitarists) take it too seriously. Some people don't have the time or patience to master the real instrument, so Guitar Hero is the next best thing.

I like Rock Band better though.

I hate your sig (Pittsburgher here). ...

On-topic: I like the game, I hate kids who brag about beating a song on expert, and I hate that people only know songs from great bands because it was on GH.

I enjoy the game, i dont worship it though.
I just play it with friends, when im bored and its to late to play real guitar(loud) or when fapping rips off all the skin off of William and it hurts to fap, so its a good alternative.
#36
Grr why do people say rockband's guitar is meh? Do you download any songs that come out for it?...Just this week is a roadrunner metal pack,and last week had 2 system of a down songs that are hard as ****.Rockband is awesome as is the first two guitar heroes...but drums are'nt the only reason rockband is awesome.

I can say those two songs are the most complicated on drums bar none.

pretty fun game. I'm actually going into a Guitar Hero competition at the mall around here in a few days. Just because the prize is $250, and I figure that's pretty easy money. Especially when the competition is making everybody play on medium unless both players can play on hard or expert. And expert isn't that hard to do, so... medium = t3h boringz. To me, at least. It was exciting before I learned that the orange button doesn't mean the end of the world.
