I just think it's funny when kids devote so much time to playing GH when they could actually learn to play the instrument the game features. Don't get me wrong, it's a fun game, I've had all of them except the 80's edition (and 3 sucks sad.gif ) but if you're not playing real guitar in parallel to the game, then it's like saying that because you're a beast at H3 you're an expert soldier.

OMG i agree haha.. i have a friend who plays a little guitar.. he just dinks around and learns a few songs and riffs and stuff but! instead of practicing guitar he spent an entire week learning how to two hand tap in guitar hero! For some reason also he thinks hitting 5 buttons on guitar hero takes more talant than playing guitar.. where there are like what.. 144 buttons u can hit smile.gif

I got guitar hero for nintendo wii it looks fun (love the online mode) but never tried to play the game with the guitar controller wink.gif Well I don't see any similarity about playing GH and actual guitar but ok if kids get reason to tease their actual guitar playing friends its ok wink.gif

edit : we got a new sub forum Electronic entertainment so I think this topic will be suitable to be moved there wink.gif

I hate it when people say they're very good at guitar because they're good at Guitar Hero. Well, the Guitar Hero is equivalent to a guitar with one string and five frets... blink.gif When a real guitar has six strings and 21 to 24 frets...

EDIT: But it is a very fun game smile.gif

yeah i've gotta say i love guitar hero, but i cant stand when people think it helps you play real guitar. the only way i see something like that happening is the drums from rock band might help you get started on drums..

but.....the original guitar hero forced me to use my pinky....and that was when i finally used my pinky on real guitar too....

After a guitar hero night at a friends house, I got one of my friends into playing real guitar, and I think it's quite common for people to start wanting to play guitar after having played the game. But yeah, it's stupid to say you're good at guitar because you're good at guitar hero, it's like saying you're good as dancing juse bcause you're good att ddr..

If you play guitarhero, i think that you only get faster fingers. i don't think that you would be better at a real guitar wink.gif

I love GH, I have all games, and it's just great, but it has noooothing to do with playing the real thing, of course!

Good thing is that many people who play Gh end up getting a real guitar.

Some people spend thousands of hours playing GH though... check any youtube video of people who beat GH2 Jordan in expert!! They actually have to tap the buttons to HO/PO the solos... it's crazy!
