Guitar Hero? Psh, what a waste of time. I`ve been in real life punk/metal bands (not currently in one, since I have too much other crap occupying my life:( ) and let me tell you, The feeling you get from real guitar is INFINITELY better than anything a stupid game could ever offer.

Guitar Hero is literally one of the worst games ever created. It mocks real rockers.

Damn people, its a frickin` video game. Its something most players use for entertainment. Itsallfake and Loofahboy beat me to it with the Street fighter analogy. And to Dainty: I would hope that you wouldn`t choose one guy over another just because he plays a real guitar :P

I dont think anyone on this site has room to talk about wasting life...seriously. I do agree with a few people on here who are sticking up for guitar hero. I, for one, love rythym games. Ive played ddr for a few years, and guitar hero for a little while (never felt like paying for it so I just play here and there). But seriously it`s a rythym game thats all it is and all it ever will be.

Guitar Hero is so dumb. I`m sorry, but playing this stupid game doesn`t mean you can `play` a real guitar.

On the other hand, maybe it`s better that kids get into something stupid like this than drugs.

"Makes me laugh how people fight over such stupid things. If you lay guitat hero and want to wastes your time with it its YOUR problem not anyone elses. If u get ticked its kus something hit you as true. Meanwhile those of us who well could live without it, LOL what losers eh? :P IMO I cant judge you but you cant censor me. SO um get a life?"

Yes, because playing a video game and getting annoyed when people tell you to get a life and that you`re wasting your time meaans that we`re complete losers right?

What`s worse is when you`re playing it and someone sends a message when they`re playing something like Halo 3 saying that you should get a life and play realy guitar...umm, ok, I will, just as soon as you become a Spartan and kill aliens to save the Earth.

Guitar Hero is not that bad, but you just have to take it for what it is, a video game.

I agree with everything itsallfake had to say, really. I`ve only played guitar for two years, and I can honestly say that I don`t think I`ll ever feel like I`m as good as I COULD be. But with GH, you can just sit around with friends and hit a few buttons and have fun (for people who are willing to deal with the fact that it`s JUST A GAME). The only thing actual guitar and GH have in common is THE GUITAR SHAPE.

I`ve never heard of anyone telling a street fighter fan "why waste your time when you can go outside and start a REAL street fight? Like me lol?"

Dammit fake you beat me to it by 22 seconds! :D

Rant time!!

Theres nothing more annoying than the same three hundred people in any video discussion going "zomg why lurn guitar hero when u can learn a real guita rlike me lol????????/" The confusion lies with the similarities people place on guitar hero and real guitar. They are NOTHING alike. A real guitar is a delicate instrument which takes years of hard work and dedication to play. Guitar hero is a giant malformed game controller with six and a half buttons for which is effectively a rhythm game, which offers an immediate and cost-free adrenaline rush like any other game. I play both the game and a real six-string and I can safely say that guitar hero and real guitar have VERY little in common other than appearance.

The reason people enjoy and master Guitar Hero is the exact same reason that people master Street Fighter 2: Its fun and it`s competitive, while not having the consequences of a REAL street fight.

And finally, lets say they take your advice, you know cause "you play guitar and it`s so much different than the game". So these kids pick up a guitar, write a ouple of crappy tunes that happens to catch a producer`s ear, get signed, cut a crappy album, make a crappy video, get overplayed on the radio, and get paid $1M for all of it. Meanwhile your still sitting in your garage trying to be artistic and skilled, not getting signed, not getting paid, not making crappy video and not getting exposed on the radio, and your life washes down a tube along with your hopes and dreams of keeping it all "rock and roll". Do you really want that kind of competition? Remember these kids arent musicians, but if you push them, they ertainly could be, and they we will have to hear that crap on the radio...

Disclaimer: I play both guitar and bass.
That being said, let me enlighten the internet a-holes that think this game is for loosers who should go out and play real guitar. 1 - Most of the people who play GH are not inclined to play real instruments, period. What they are doing is enjoying a follow the leader game with music they love to listen to. 2 - GH can be played mildly successfully after 1 hour of game time, guitar = lifetime, seriously, i know people who have played for 20 years and still strive to be better. 3 - Cost, GH w/ controller = $100, using the same equipment as each and every band featured in GH = in the 100Ks. 4 - Do you give kereoke singer crap because they do the same thing?

learning guitar hero is easier than learning to play a real guitar for people who arent musicly inclined. Sides it picks up more chicks then a real guitar does these days. which i admit is a little sad

Although, the franchise(s) have been heading towards becoming just another mass-produced corporate cash-in for a while now, especially now with the "aerosmith" edition coming up. Bleh.

The portable guitar hero sounded quite good actually, but things like the speaker and guitar stand were a bit...extreme. Why not just learn to play a real guitar?
