I hate Guitar Hero! Who's with me!?
« on: November 11, 2008, 09:47:49 am »
I'm looking around on the internet for a new guitar and to get an idea of whats available i type Les Paul into ebay as they're my favourite kind of guitar and all i get are freakin guitar hero guitars. I'm sick of this thing. I look for song tabs and i get idiots bragging about how they can play this song guitar hero.

Its a game where a band that only gets 80% of its notes correct gets blazing 5 start reviews and you can post a video on youtube of you getting 100% on expert and people will comend and envy you on how much of your life you've wasted.

It boggles my mind it really does.

why not spend all those hours learning an actual instrument?


i was watching the in bloom music video on youtube and the comments section had people proudly boasting "i can get 100% on this song in guitar hero!".

so? its a game. Music is one of the most defining aspects of any culture. I love music. Its an obsession of mine. Its the only thing that all cultures have and appreciate and people make million releasing a game where you pretend to play guitar.

Is THAT many options on a poll really necessary? 3 would suffice methinks.

why not spend all those hours learning an actual instrument?

Now, I don't play it. But it makes more sense to play this than taking the insane amount of hours needed to learn a "real" instrument.

The game is cheaper, faster to learn, and easy to throw away.

A real Guitar takes commitment.

Some people don't want that. They want to easy way. Fine. But no one is impressed with it other than other Guitar Hero players. And that's the trade-off.

It's a fun game. Go one step further and let's talk about Rock Band. Every time I go to a party with Rock Band there's always a fight over which girl gets to use the mic. That's a blast! Plus it's a great way to meet people, oddly enough.

Who says its stupid? It teaches people the songs doesn't it? Those people who have 100% could probably recite the entire song to you, is that not cultural expansion of music? Just because they cant play a real guitar doesn't lessen their interest and passion for music.

If anything, the world needs fewer guitar players and Guitar Hero is doing an immaculate job at that. Our college quads are becoming congested with douchebags who think it's cool to sit out there in the grass strumming the first few chords to a song that they think makes them deep and mysterious. We need them out of the way so that the only true non-douche activity can happen: Ultimate Frisbee.

having the ability to recite songs isn't cultural expansion.  Its just an annoying fad.
you could use that logic to argue sining into a hairbrush is cultural expansion.

if you wanna buy something and waste your time thats fine but its this hole thing where i can't escape it. its everywhere. You cant avoid hearing about it.

Our college quads are becoming congested with douchebags who think it's cool to sit out there in the grass strumming the first few chords to a song that they think makes them deep and mysterious.

I hate them aswell.  They've started learning for all the rong reasons. You shouldn't start learning just to try and acheive a look you want. I try very hard to avoid that. I don't play when friends are over or when i have company plus the main instrument i can play is piano.

well guitar hero players tend to be Rock Star Wannabes and rather than actually learn an instrument and put in the effort they just pretend they are by jumping up and down in their bedroom with a giant game controler listening to Cliche rock.

imagine if say. . .  thats all Eric Clapton did or Dave Grohl or Axl Rose did.

Its not cultural expansion its the opposite. Atleast when you sing into a hairbrush you atleast practice singing while your imagining you have a crowd of adoring fans.

I'm happy to say Guitar Hero is a game, and a lot of people seem to enjoy it. However, when you start counting high scores or 100%s as something more than just a high score on a video game and as an actual accomplishment in life, that's kiiiinda weeeeird.

it's because when you and some mates are setting around the console Rocking out playing a rolling stones track it is pure un-adulterated fun. It's not a real instrument so what Rock Band had it's Australian release (here I go my personal sounding like a broken record moment) just last Friday. So I been playing that game fair bit In an no time at all I can pick the game and be playing Foo Fighters - Learn to fly. To do so with a real guitar would take months of practice. Do i think I'm actually Dave Grohl? Heck no. Am I having fun? Darn tootin. The feeling is multiplied when I get friends to join me we pretend we are cool and we have fun.

Further point I've heard guitar sales are up as a result of Guitar hero/rock band people are wanting to learn to play for real from this very accessible medium.

Finally i leave you with case and point.

Sheesh Brutus, do you have something against people's form of pleasure and fun? The game is awesome because it fun. Not because it teaches you how to actually play an instrument. I'm pretty sure people are aware of that. And what makes it so great is that you can bond with your friends and have a good time. That is the true spirit of these music games.

As Cobra said, not everyone can commit to learning an instrument and perform in a family environment. Not everyone has that luxury. But I'm pretty sure you feel more attached to the friends you play with.

Actually, on this point I will agree with you. The people at my school who will bring a guitar a butcher a Christian/Country song...oh there are so many. The songs are bad to begin with, and then add in horrid guitar and some atrocious vocals....bleh.


But I know a lot of people who picked up real guitar due to guitar hero, or picked up percussion because of rock band.

I don't really think this thread was made because of "RAWW, I HATE PEOPLE WHO PLAY ROCKBAND AND GUITAR HERO!"...

Ok, maybe. But more likely, you have to add "AND THINK THEY ARE MORE AWESOME THEN HOT SAUCE!" to the end.

They can have their fun, but leave it in the bedroom, or whereever it is they play with themselves.

I don't like guitar hero, rock band, any eyetoy a games, and most wii titles. Because i don't like casual gimmicks where you need to buy extra equipment or controllers to play them.

Though i admit i did have rock band and while it was fun i regret it because it was not worth the huge price tag.

actually i belive you made a few mistakes... i will take care of them for you!

well guitar hero players tend to be for people who like rock music but don't have the attention span to learn a real instrument- nevermind start a band. Rather than actually learn how to play an instrument and put in the effort, they just pretend they are by jumping up and down in their bedroom with a giant game controler listening to decent rock so they don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on something that takes too much effort to learn how to even use, which they would most likely give up mid-way, seeing it is far too difficult than playing GH on expert. which brings me to my next point, people play it because it is simple, and fun without the hassle of a learning to play real guitar. people want to learn to play a real guitar so they can actually benefit from it whether it be from having a true skill or you want to start a band, which is fine! but others want simply to play guitar hero because they don't want to do any of the things i just said (Ex: start a band or care about learning the guitar)...

overall it isn't bad, but its not better than sex (whoever said it was is...different...) it does however irk me to a painful state to see people addicted to it thinking they benefited from clicking buttons in a certain pattern and that they are better than you for it making them human dieties placed on this Earth to destroy all who appose them and to spread the decent-ness that is Guitar Hero...

I made my point, I HAVE SPOKEN!

You know what's interesting? My brother, now 18 years of age, is an avid Rock Band/Guitar Hero fan. Then, get this, he and a few of his friends actually picked up some instruments and learned to play. And they don't sound like crap. I know it's silly, but it turns out some of the skills are actually transferable to real instruments.

It would be wierd if you did considering your like 12 or something. i can't remember exactly but your young i know that much.

It seems that the thread has turned into a simple discussion about GH.  thats cool i guess.

How long do you think it takes to get to beat songs on like 100% expert?

I don't think many people have that goal. Most will stop at medium and some will go to hard and that's about that. Expert is good for a challenge but it's really hard! 100% is out of the question. :P

OK.

The only thing I can't stand about guitar hero is that there is only guitar songs on their.  Who wants to spend all that money for a few songs, and you can't even make your own(a feature in some free rhythm based game)?
