The sole reason I find this game so awesome is that one of the hidden unlockable songs is Trogdor. That's right...

TROGDOOOOOOR!!!

haha! that's amazing! dun nu nu dAHHH! dun nu nu DAHHH! dun nu nu dah du dah du dah du!

my roommate's boyfriend has guitar hero and he brings it over sometimes... when he leaves it here, I get very addicted for hours on end... which is not normal for me to do that with a video game. 4srs.

I would want this game if I weren't already able to play guitar so fast that my neck catches fire.

Oh well.

I don't get it... I can play the guitar, too. guitar hero isn't like actually playing guitar... it's much different. and funnnn!

Basically, it's like a $70 simulation of something I already do. It is fun, though, I played it in a store and had plenty of fun defeating some guy who already had it and thought I would be an easy target because I'd never played before. It's just not worth it to me for the game AND the controller monetarily. One of my friends might get it, though, I can't wait to pwnz him at life.

that's like saying, I already know how to drive a car, so buying a car game isn't worth it. They're quite different. I don't really find them very comparable, I guess. Or my good friend is a dance major, and she still finds DDR amazingly fun.

There's no need to shell out $70 for a game that just simulates what I do for pretty much a 3rd of my day already, though. If I can avoid spending unnecessary money, I will, and I don't see why it's such a big deal

Also, DDR doesn't count as dancing, despite it being in the name twice. I think they should call it SSR for Stomp Stomp Revolution, it's somewhat more fitting. And that's a pretty false analogy with the car games, as they're generally racing or stealing games, which you generally don't do during your morning commute. If they come out with a driving simulator when I'm old enough to drive, I probably would not spend money on it.

...and guitar hero doesn't count as guitar playing, haha. I'm not saying it's a big deal... but DDR is as close to dancing as guitar hero is to playing a guitar... for serious.

EDIT: actually, DDR is closer to dancing than guitar hero is to playing guitar... if you've ever seen someone who's actually a good dancer play that game on hard, they are straight up dancing and it's absolutely crazy. No matter what you do with guitar hero, you're not even close to playing the guitar.

Guitar Hero II is awesome. I'm stuck - I can't beat the Living End song.
Me and my dad play co-op almost everyday on his PS2, and "YYZ" is indeed the shiznat.

I hate the game for reasons stated by Llamas. It's almost nothing like actually playing a guitar.

If the game was a decent simulation of the guitar and required actual musical skill to do & beat I would probably love it. But the casual gamer, who is most likely their largest audience, would not.

or something like it, with the coloured signs on the strings you need to play...some sort of virtual tab.But definitely not with buttons...

I honestly wouldn't want to play it if it was like playing an actual guitar. Why would I want to play a video game, then, when I could play it for real? (This time the car analogy should work!) Why would I want to get a car game if it was exactly the same as driving an actual car? Why would I want to get a basketball game if it was exactly the same as what I can do out on a court? There have to be things that make the game much different from real life in order to make them fun.

Yes, thats true, but i dont think you could play "Misirlou" or "Hanger 18" The point is to have a similator of a guitar god, like Eric Clapton (Obey the Clapton!) or If you want Elvis, but he was only king.

Games are there for things you can't do in real life, like destroy death stars or beat old ladies with baseball bats. Guitar hero however i have been on once and i found it much more entertaining than the majority of tennis/football/fishing(hehe lame) game that i have been on.

Yep, there's 10 more. I don't know why i'm buying it, but i am. It's going to be almost the exact same thing. Hopefully there would be downloadable songs on the 360 version.

* Hush (as made famous by Deep Purple)
* Dead! (by My Chemical Romance) - Master Track
* Life Wasted (as made famous by Pearl Jam)

Guitar Hero is pretty fun. I have played it at my friends but I totally sucked since I play a 6 string bass in real life.. the size difference completely killed me. The 5 buttons of GH was about 2-3 frets of my bass.

Anyway, why I'm posting.. Guitar Hero is fun, but it gets on my nerves when people come up to me and say things like, "YYZ is so easy!!" or like "I could play that song so easily on a real guitar." IT'S NOT A GUITAR!

Had to let that out..

True, the Wii isn't made for kick ass graphics, its for family fun.
The PS3 promised too many things that they couldn't put in the PS3, in there time frame. I think they did that because Sony's last console was the new PS2, wich was released in 2005 I belive? Anyway, and Microsoft released the Xbox 360, wile Nintendo has realeased the Nintendo DS, DS lite, and the Wii. Thats just my opinion on the situation.
