Guitar Hero is Pretty Darn Fun!

Guitar Hero IIII spent the better part of Christmas weekend and last weekend playing Guitar Hero III. That’s the best excuse for my absence here and elsewhere.  Besides the holiday itself that is.  Of all the new games that have come out, GH was not on my list. I tend to play a lot more of the football games and games like Medal of Honor.

I really had assumed that I wouldn’t like Guitar Hero at all. I was wrong. It rocks! The selection of songs is pretty darn good. And it’s difficult enough to keep you working. Of course, my fingers just wouldn’t work very well on more than the easy level. I’m sure a little practice would help that.

Unfortunately, the system we were playing it on was a PS2 so didn’t have any online capabilities. I believe you can download new songs if you’ve got a PS3, Xbox 360 or Wii. That would exponentially add to the playability. It’s much more fun when you are more than familiar with the song you’re trying to play.

Another thing that I brought back from my playing was a respect of sorts for anyone who can play this game on expert and actually get somewhere. These folks on YouTube, for instance. Simply amazing.

  1. If you like GH, Shane, you’ll LOVE Rock Band which lets you bash on drums, tests out your pipes behind the microphone and shred bass lines. It’s the best game of 2007 in my opinion.

    New songs each week on Xbox Live (Xbox 360) and the Playstation Network (PS3).

  2. I’ll have to see if I can find any relatives with Rock Band and give it a try. 😉 I refuse to buy things like that for myself because I get hooked and then never get anything done.

  3. I can totally relate. I never really like GH, even though I’ve never played it. It’s just one of those games you know you wouldn’t like. Surprisingly enough, someone got me the game as a Christmas gift. I decided to “try” it out 3 days ago and now I’m hooked! It’s kinda pretty darn cool! I even caught my dad playing with it last night when he thought all of us was asleep. Guess he couldn’t resist to get in on the action too.. LOL!

  4. I’ve never played either and pretty much thought the same thing as you. But my girl loves it and so do my friends. On top of that one of the local pubs has guitar hero night on Mondays where you go get drunk and have competitions. I went one week but didn’t play because I have know idea what I’m doing. But if I get the chance I’m sure i’ll give it a try.

  5. Yeah, I played this game the entire day and that includes the fun 2007 xmas party that i had.

    It’s a great party game 🙂 good to know that you are having fun with it. cheers!

  6. I’ve lost entire days playing GH. But I guess as I get better, I’ll need to drop it and look into Rock Band. Looks like tons of fun.

  7. My interest for Guitar Hero is pretty down… I now play a lot of rock band with buddies. Whenever I need to find inspiration to get that GH controller out though, I like to look at this girl’s pic 😉 : http://www.pause-button.com/2008/04/17/kiss-me-guitar-hero-babe/

  8. Hell yeah it is fun! Love it, I even found this cool video that shows you how make a guitar hero clone! Check it http://www.howcast.com/videos/27814-Make-a-Guitar-Hero-Clone
