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)

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 . . . !
A Guitar Simulation game. Utilizing an included Gibson SG shaped controller, players can play over 30 different songs in both Metal and Classic Rock categories, including David Bowie, Megadeth, Creme, and Jimi Hendrix. Avaliable for Playstation 2.
"Guitar Hero is a fantastic game, and great at parties!"
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.
Guitar player: Pff this Guitar Hero is lame go play a REAL guitar.
Gamer: omfg stfu n00b talk to me when you can play Bark at the Moon on expert roflolol
Guitar player: You're gay
Gamer: I kno u r but wut am I roflololmao
a video game compared to masturbation: fun but cant beat the real thing.
what?? come on its true. guitar hero is like masturbation
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.
