A fucking video game designed to look like the player is performing a live concert on stage (even though there is only 6 arenas or so)
Anyways, the game is wildly played at parties by some jerkoff tweens, and it is the same thing as that dance revolution game, its a slap in the face to many artists and it is insulting for real rockers, the game is so mainstream you will find it on billboards, websites, radio sations, every company is chipping in, tv, commercials it makes rock look like a fucking manufactured product, and of course-untill now-they are shoving dollar bills up every bands asses so they can sell out(which they do eventually) you like this game whatever, I don't fucking dig commercial rock, its shit it deletes its message. shit even the dead kennedys caved in and sold out, who can blame them for it, fucking lawyers made these guys assraping eachother at every sight, until they fucking rebanded to this plastic commercial shit, at least we still got jello..
Guitar Hero produces stupid mainstreamers and releases a new generation of fake ass artificial phonies, guitar hero is killing true rockers and making them just another toy of corporation greed.

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.

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.

A guitar-simulation series which let's you act like a proffesional guitarist without actually being one; a super fun game that's great for parties and leaves you with countless hours of head bashing fun!

Unfortunately, this game is looked down upon by half-assed guitarists. Here's what I have to say...

NO ONE GIVES A SHIT THAT YOU DON'T LIKE GUITAR HERO! IT'S A FUCKING GAME YOU HALF-ASSED BASTARD! A GAME! IF YOU WERE SMART YOU'D BE ACTUALLY BE PRACTICING INSTEAD OF BASHING PEOPLE NOT WORTH YOUR TIME ONLINE!

Another problem is belief among many Guitar Hero nerds, usually refered to as guitar heroes or guitar zeros, that being able to beat a hard-ass song on Expert makes them better than Hendrix. Here's another thing I have to say!

I DON'T GIVE A SHIT YOU FUCKING NERD! OK, YOU BEAT THROUGH THE FIRE AND FLAMES! BIG WHOOP! NO ONE REALLY CARES. UNLESS YOUR PICKING UP CHICKS WITH THAT, IT'S BULLSHIT!

Example:

Me: Bro, you want to play some Guitar Hero? I've been working and I think I got better!

Half-Assed Guitarist: Guitar Hero? You are such a noob. Not to mention gay. Only homo, faggot losers play Guitar Hero. Get a REAL guitar and then I'll be impressed, but I'll just act like a whining, big baby, jackass until you do that...

Me: It's a damn game. Lighten up, you prick... How 'bout you? You in?

Guitar Zero/ Hero Nerd: Heck, yes! I'll show you that I can beat every song on Expert! Then, I'll shred it up on a real guitar like I'm Hendrix, but we all know I've never touch a guitar in my life... or a girl at that... I'm TOTALLY in!

Half-Ass: You fucking nerd. Go shoot yourself

Zero/ Nerd: No! How 'bout you go slit your throat!

Half-Ass: No! You!

Zero/ Nerd: No! YOU!

(Goes on about 30 more times)

Me: BOTH OF YOU ARE ACTING LIKE BIG-ASS BABIES! Fuck both of you! All I wanted to to was play some fucking Guitar Hero, but you fuckfaces had to make it SO hard. Your both talented! Now stop fighting jackasses! Both of you go kill your selfs!!!!!

(I walk out angrily)

Zero/ Nerd: What's he so bitchy for?

Half-Ass: Who knows? Maybe he's secretly a girl and that's his time of the month...

Zero/ Nerd: Yeah... want to bitch more about Guitar Hero and real guitars like fags more?

Half-Ass: YOU BET!!!

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."
