i have been on this forum for a while now, and i have noticed that you all seem to hate guitar hero. i was just wondering, why?
in theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice, there is

This...

It's not more than a game, and some people get more respect for it than real guitarists.

I thought this whole guitar hero obsession thing was only in America, I don't know many people that actually play the thing so I don't think I've been exposed to the same annoyences and grievances as other members, to me it's just another random game that I've played once or twice and nothing more.

I think there are 3 different groups in UG`s if you talk about GH.

Group 1, Love it, play it and encourage others.

Group 2, Don`t play it, but are enthousiastic about it because more people know classic rock songs.

Group 3, Hate it, think that it`s an insult for playing guitar because it`s fake.

And ofcourse there are people between those groups and with an different opinion.

I've been on this forum for a longer while now, and i have noticed that it's hard to generalize on a board with over 1M registered users. I love guitar hero and I've played guitar long before the game was made.
Some people don't like it and they feel like they need to make a big deal out of it.

so i guess marines and army folk should be insulted because games of that nature dont involve real bullets or dead guys


the haters of GH are a minority, its a fun interactive GAME, and thats it

As long as you don't think guitar hero = real guitar ability then it's all good. Personally I love it, it's great fun to throw shapes and look like a general fool while playing.

It fun for a while

Putting huge amount of practice to do Through the fire and flames on expert however, is not fun

That's where I stopped playing the game

fun game, but people start bragging about how they rock at guitar hero and it's annoying, it's much funner, cooler, awesomer, and harder plus you can play anything you want andit's more useful, so wtf are they bragging on about?!

I like it. I bring the DS game everywhere but I can definitely understand why people hate it... I'm a purist about a lot of things myself.

It is. Or at least, in Israel and Argentina almost no one plays it.

Anyway, the people that hate it because it's fake, should also stop playing FPS's and racing games unless they enlist in the army and start racing.

yeah, there is always someone who can sum up the thoughts in one sentence.....

it is only worth playing when intoxicated with friends - it is sad to play it on your own to get scores.

otherwise it is just an expensive cd.....
#27
Haven't ever really played it but It's fun to amaze those who play them by playing simple songs from the game. I played intro of throught the fire and the flames in our music class and every guitar hero player where like: "HOLY SHIT" and the intro even isn't that hard.

It doesnt own up to a real guitar and a lot of the people who are "o-m-g i play exxxxpert guyzz" think they are big and bad and when they decide to pick up a real guitar, whine and cry over how different and hard it is.

Im not against the game or anything, but yeah.

I play it, but I just hate people who take it so seriously. But yeah, it's a fun game to play with friends.

I started playing guitar hero before i started playing guitar. I liked it before hand and still do. One thing i noticed is that people get more respect for playing guitar hero then playing the real guitar.

Guitar Hero Is Nothing Like The Real Guitar

But yeah, its not a bad game, just for the people who don't have the patience for the real guitar

I don't hate GH, but I hate 2 things related to it.

1) The massive craze of beating Through The Fire and Flames on expert and thinking that you win at life because of it.
2) Guitarists whinging about it.
Gear:
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
Ibanez GRG170DX

The same reason people on here hate World of Warcraft. It makes them look "cool."

Personally, I love both GH and WoW.

If you play guitar to get respect, you shouldn't be playing it at all.

Because we all thought we were so bad ass playing guitar and such until GH came along with its little pop culture and bastardized everything we stood for!!

No really, I don't have a problem with it.
