An awesome multi-platform game that has become a pop-culture phenomenon due to it's ability to make the player feel like they are a talented guitarist without having to waste any time actually leaning how to play a guitar.

Like all things that experience fast widespread success, and cause hot topics of conversation, it has it's detractors. Mainly guitar-players who are angry at the game's ability to make them look bad, and because they didn't know about it first. Like all critics of this type, they take an elitst stance and usually combat any conversation regarding the game with statements like 'Why don't you just play a real guitar'. Or 'It's just a poor man's version of a real guitar', ignorant to the well-noted fact that no girl has been impressed by a guy who can play the guitar skillfully since 1995.

It is this shift in the female gender's attraction from the traditional guitarists to non-instrumental vocalists that has garnered much resentment from the guitarist community. In addition to the fact that being a member of a small band is now less attractive than being a Level 639 at Warcraft.

It is also worth noting that while there are other games that simulate the experience of a sport or activity, such as the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater franchise, Dance Dance Revolution, 'music-making' games, and Sim-whatever; which do not recieve the same hostility from their peer groups. "Why don't you just go and skate/dance/compose/build your OWN theme-park. This is understood to be because of the "Guitars-are-lame paradox", where being skilled at a video game replicating classic guitar songs looks more fun than actually playing them would be.
Subject A: "Hey I've just bought Guitar Hero!"

Subject B: "Ughh, philistine. How moronic. Why don't you just be a REAL man and learn how to play guitar for REAL. Heh"

Subject A: "Errrm, are you aware that you're not in 1995 or a movie?"

Test subject (female): Will you (subject A) come over to my house to show me how to play Guitar Hero?"

Subject A: "Yes."

A simulatory game that is played on your game system using a game paddel that is in the shape of a guitar, has five buttons (called fret buttons) and a flipper that is supposed to represent all six strings in one! sounds pretty cool huh? well guess what if you have the time to dick around learning to play shit on that, that doesnt even MATCH the song, then just buy a fuckin guitar for $100 instead of the game and learn how to play that instead.
nOOb to guitar hero: WTF why dont I just run home and get my guitar so we can play a real song Mike
Guitar hero junkie: uh, duh, but we have everything that we need to play REAL guitar on my PS2!
nOOb to guitar hero: faggot..

Guitar simulation game for people who have no friends and/or don't own Rock Band.
Tom: Hey, wanna come over later and play some Guitar Hero co-op?

Bob: Dude, why don't you buy Rock Band? It's sooooo much better than Guitar Hero.

Tom: Well, you and Steve are my only friends. I don't see the point.

Steve: Hey, don't include me in your little group. I actually have friends.

One of the greatest games ever made by man. Includes a setlits full of such hits as Iron Man, Killer Queen, Spanish Castle Magic, and much, much more. There is an ongoing war between 'gamers' and 'guitarists' about it, but any smart person should realize that this is just a (incredibly fun) game that should not be compared to a real guitar on levels of awesomeness. *There is also a sequel, which is just as much, if not more, awesome.
Nerdy guy: guItR hEr0 15 5ooo000 MUcH HaRd3R D4N DuH R33L G33T4R LoL M I R1T3??????/////

Guitarist guy: Shut up, loser face. You suck.

Me: You guys are losers. Guitar Hero is not as hard as a normal guitar, nor is it supposed to be. It's just a fun game, so please just stop before my head explodes from stupidity.
