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.

A simple entertaining pass-time that is the subject of much controversy among guitarists and video-game players. Being able to play a song on "expert" in Guitar Hero does not mean you are good at playing the guitar. However, that does not make the game less fun. Guitar players use it to bash video gamers, and video gamers use it to show off their "skills". However, a happy medium enjoys the game for what it is - a game.
Guitar Hero Player: Dude, this game rocks! But I'm smart and I know this is nothing like a real guitar . . . !

One of the greatest games that innovates without sacrificing etertainment value. Has a variety of rock songs, but would tend to lean on the metal side slightly. One does not have to enjoy metal to like this game however, for it has many mainstream approved songs. It is played a with a controller that looks similar to that of a Gibson SG. If you own a PS2 you owe it to yourself to get this game.

A game played at Best Buy as a way to pick up chicks who dont realize that no skill from playing the real guitar is required.
At a party where band and drama geeks are present, guitar hero is played along with DDR, soul calibur.

A pretty sweet game. But it's nothing in comparison to playing the real guitar.
(continued from one of the Guitar Hero definitions below)

Guitar Player: Oh yeah? Well I'd like to see you play Bark at the Moon on a REAL guitar. ::shreds 'Bark at the Moon' flawlessly on his electric guitar::

Gamer: ::overwhelmed by such awesomeness that he explodes and dies::

An awesome, innovative game, that sadly gives tards the impression they can actually play iron man on guitar. Look up guitar hero on YouTube to see what I mean. For this reason, most actual guitarists look down o it, but haven't given an awesome game a chance. Although I wouldn't call it a simulation, it's very far from actual playing guitar.
gamer: OMFG 3y3 KaN PLAY Ir0N MAN 0n t3h G3374r lolzorz!!1!111!!
guitarist: Yeah, too bad a real guitar has 22 frets instead of 5 and 6 strings instead of one. Guitar Hero is for cock smoking fags.
me: Both of you are dumb fucks. Go cut your throats.
