A video game, originally published by RedOctane for Playstation 2
, wherein a player uses a controller shaped like a Gibson SG
as if it were a real-life, honest-to-God, swear-on-your-mother's-spatula guitar. Much like Dance Dance Revolution
, coloured shapes fly atcha - you hold the corresponding coloured button down and strum. That's how complicated it is, really.
Evidently, there are guitar players who see this game as an abhorration of musical performance, as those who do not play guitar can now revel in the virtual panties thrown on their virtual stage. But there's nothing wrong with the game - there are those who play both Guitar Hero and a real guitar, with equal relish... tasty, tasty relish.
The choice is up to you... keep in mind that, however wonderful you and your friends may think you sound, the music industry isn't all that easy to be part of. And no way you can have a problem with playing 'Bark At The Moon' as the fuckin' Grim Ripper.
I am a Guitar Hero. Jimi Hendrix is a guitar hero. But if he could, you know he'd play this damn game.
