Ok, so I'm only a teenager, and have been looking forward to my parents buying be a guitar (I don't get pocket money, I'll ask for something, and if it is within reason, I'm allowed to buy it) for a while now, but as it is approaching the november, all the good Xbox 360 games which look as if they have great potential are coming out. Now, my parents are making me choose now, between games such as gears of war 2 etc. and getting a guitar...(Its not about tha value) I don't know which one to get, because I've been looking forward to both... what should I do?

Oh, and please don't question about the pocket money...

Xbox games = Will last a few weeks.

A guitar = Can last 20++ years.

Get bored with the games or learn a ton of songs on the guitar.

I'd go with guitar.

even though saying that, I've had COD 4 for a year now, and I love every second of playing it.

Buy the guitar. You won't regret it. There is one simple reason for this: hot chicks won't want to go down on you if you're really good at Gears Of War 2.
For a wounded man shall say to his assailant, "if I live I will kill you."
"If I die, you are forgiven."
Such is the rule of honour.

if you even have to question whether to get a guitar or a video game, you obviously don't have enough of a passion to learn and play guitar. may as well get the video games because the guitar will just get dusty in the corner of your room.

After a mindboggling 3-hour Steve Vai concert, I had to listen to some brainless guitar playing... so I put on Nevermind...

Jesus Rocks!

Games that you can play online are really addictive, that's why I don't play them anymore.

I'd go for the guitar but if you're not really patient go for the xbox360.

I have wanted a guitar for god knows how long, hell, I've even checked online lessons and learnt a little bit of theory, just to get a head start on it!

I must be doing something wrong, because guitar hasn't helped me with the ladies.

honestly don't if you even gotta contemplate it, go with the games... doesn't seem like you have the attention span to learn guitar. once u learn its not knowing fingerings and for the first month or so just learning how to move ur fingers. i bought my first guitar, second, third, and some hot chick gave me her guitar for my fourth. and my parents refuse to buy me any thing video game related as it corrupts the mind into ducktaping a chainsaw to a plastic toy gun, and running around PWN'ing people

MWAH. Means 2 things.

2) The sound I make when I kiss ManWithoutAHat (on the cheek ) for making such a brilliant comment.

Do your parents where aluminum foil?

heres another way to look at it, if you get the guitar and turn out you don't like it you can sell it and get the games later. but if you buy the games you definitely wont be able to sell them to get a guitar. and you definitely dont want to get both, last thing you need is when learning guitar is having somethin else taking away all your attention. oh and professional guitarists make a hell of a lot more money then professional gamers

Okay, that is one year. I bet you probably beat the game by now eh? In another year you probably won't be playing it too. With a guitar, I've had mine for a year and I haven't even scratched the surface of what you can do. There are thousands of styles and thousands of song to learn in each style. Also you can write your own songs which are even more fun to play!

I agree with what you say, but about the cod4 bit, I'm just over half way multiplayer wise, and by then, there would be another addicting game like it,.

it really depends on what you like to do more. honestly, i play the **** outta my 360. but i mostly play on live, are you gonna gat xbox live, because if not, id say go with the guitar dude, learn some crazy jams
#35
get a guitar. when your power goes out, you can play it. when you are at your friends house and he is on the 1player xbox, you can play it. you can pick up hot chicks with a guitar, while with gears of war you can pick up boxes.
