Why did you even put that option in the first place?

i dunno. To see if someone would click it and to try and ensure that no-one would click it.

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.

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!

I didn't click it, I know that much.  That person is weird, seriously.  Guitar Hero over the greatest pleasure?  Not that I would know...

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.

Bah, it's like saying using a computer keyboard makes you better at piano...  It's just totally different.  They had the skills to begin with obviously.

There are some similarities. They are very different though still that is sort of what these rythem games are about making it easy to pick up an instrument.

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
