I personally think that Guitar Hero and Rock band are a disgrace. All they do is waste the lives of so many kids, and some like Blake QUIT SCHOOL just to play them. Another negative thing they do is just prevent kids from learning to play the real guitars, drums etc. whatever.

Im making a wild guess that in about 50 - 60 years, kids will be getting more money out of a plastic guitar then other people who are really talented at the real instrument and deserve some attention, which is just a damned crying shame.

Actually, all the guitar hero does is just hinder from playing the real guitar.


Guitar hero is a disgrace and should be banned IMO.

No it doesn't.

All it does is take people who want to be the next Yngwie Malmsteen and make sure they're kept far away as possible from real guitars.

It's doing us a service in the same way natural selection does.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

Wow.

I didn't think it was possible to reach the level of idiocy it'd take to be convinced in to letting your child do this.

If he is properly home schooled and engages in some sort of social interaction with other people his age, it's not really that big a deal. Chances are he will just become a hermit and decide one day to shoot up a bowling alley... but guess we will have to wait and see.
