I don't think much of it, It's a game, meant to entertain and for people to enjoy. I don't consider it an example of a sick attitude in society, That seems a bit overboard to me. People of all ages have fun with it, and can just enjoy it, i dont see anything wrong with that.

For me if people are haveing fun in a harmless way, that is great ! biggrin.gif As a very serious guitarist I dont look down upon this game because its not a real guitar, im just glad people enjoy themselves.

Now if someone asks me to help them play the real guitar I would be most delighted to show them the way ! biggrin.gif

Lots of people actually consider guitar hero a way of learning to play guitar. laugh.gif
I laughed when I first heard that. biggrin.gif
Guitar playing and Guitar Hero are nothing alike! Guitar Hero is for entertainment purposes only.

I think it's fine for people to play it with their friends casually...It's pretty fun to strike Rockstar poses with your friends. The real problem lies in people substituting Guitar Hero for real guitar. That's when it becomes sick: when you've given up shredding to sit around in your basement tapping playskool-like buttons

I think it's just a game where people want to play guitar but don't have enough time to practice the real thing smile.gif

I think it's pretty fun, good fun to rock out when frustrated learning the real thing. Stress relief!

Would anyone recommend that I should get this game? Because it looks cool and I've played it at stores and stuff. It looks pretty cool. And I have a PS2 that's gathering dust and saying "Play me! Play me!"

Hahah anyone see that Southpark eposide about guitar hero.This discussion kind of reminds me of it how some people take the game too serious thinking it has anything to do with real guitar.if you haven't seen it you should check it out caus it really makes people who brag about how good they are at fake guitar look stupid

lol, I really think that it's hillarious when some idiot says that they are good at real guitar just because they're great at guitar hero. I mean, come on. They have nothing to do with each other. I'm a good example- I can't play Raining Blood by Slayer on Guitar Hero at all, but I can smoke it on real guitar. laugh.gif
