A game played at Best Buy with the intention of impressing people walking by. Even though no one really cares.
Hey they have guitar hero here. You wanna go play it?
Nah there's no one there to watch me.

See that score of jordan on there? I got that shit.
Cool....don't really care.

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 good game that allows you to live out your rock n roll fantasies but does not allow you to think your better than everyone else who plays guitar because you can play through the fire and flames on expert mode. Another thing that pisses everyone off is that the people who play guitar hero actaully think that the controller is an actual intrument.
Kid one: I love guitar hero its so awesome I bet you 100 bucks that if you give me a real guitar I can play through the fire and flames!

Kid two: Ok hands him real guitar.

Kid one: Attemps and Epically fails.
Kid two: Ha you owe me a hundred bucks!
Kid one screw you real guitar is gay and I dont owe you anything. Kid two: takes guitar and hits kid one in the head and takes hundred bucks.

can be either

1. a game that uses a plastic stick with brightly colored buttons. occasionaly makes some addicts think they actually have talent on the real guitar, when in reality they are jealous pricks.

2. a game that some people play in small amounts. this is ok because they dont beleive they have any skill at real guitar and they could also be real guitarists too.
1. (this actually happened)
max(me): dude i finally got the intro to bark at the moon down!

tommy: sweet how long did it take?

matt s(guitar hero addict): you mean on guitar hero? i got 85% on expert! i can play it on real guitar too now! (no he cant)

me: what the fuck

tommy: go away


andrew(drummer): you know what song is awesome

me: no what

andrew: purple haze. its about a kind of weed thats apparently like 60$ a leaf!

me: thats like jimi hendrixes easiest song i learned it with the solo in 3 days

andrew: yeah its on guitar hero my cousin let me play it at his house

me: haha awesome just dont play it a lot

A game. That's all it is, a game that gives you the feeling of being able to play guitar. While a money worthy game, tends to be annoying to people who play guitar *coughmecough* when people think that being able to play expert means they can play guitar...

*Note* Find a good medium
Guitarist: Guitar Hero is for fags
Me: I can realize that it's just a game and I'm better off playing real guitar and playing Guitar Hero every now and then.

A fun music video game that has gameplay involving you picking a song and playing it on a guitar-shaped controller. However, some people get it in their head that just because they can beat "Through the Fire and Flames" on expert makes them the next Dimebag Darrell. Thousands of YouTube videos prove this. Honestly, if you can play "Iron Man" on expert in Guitar Hero, that's nothing to really be proud of, it just proves you play too much. If you can play flawlessly on a real guitar, on the other hand, that IS something to brag about.
Actual guitarist: Why press buttons on a piece of plastic when you can play the real thing?

Gamer: rofl stfu u n00b i can play through the fire and flames on expert guitar hero so im 90 times better than u roflmao yea what u gunna do bout it

Actual guitarist: Go suck a fat one
