| Guitar Hero though! why ?|
nah i still dont get it !
fair enough, you have a valid argument using all those games as examples, but when it comes down to it, you can actually at times pick up a cheap starter guitar and little amp for cheaper than the guitar hero game and fake guitar costs!
now look at the games youve listed.
football would need another 21 people for a proper game and a field.
basketball would be along the same lines.
manhunt,GTA and hitman would have you in jail.
aliens havent be proven yet!
pong i could go for, but still the room for the table!
but yet, the cost factor for guitar heros against a real guitar isnt that much, and weres the difference in the time factor, if your willing to stand and learn all the guitar hero button bashing, then why not learn a real song!
in a world of boy bands and commercial music, there isnt enough real musicians anyways.
Sorry, but I'm gonna jump on ryuclans side, and say that you do not have a valid argument at all.
Just because you buy a guitar doesn't mean you can play it. People play guitar hero because it gives them the feeling of being able to play guitar without actually having any musical talent, and it also lets them feel good about producing music.
If you are comparing Guitar Hero to playing a real guitar, then you are wrong. Playing guitar for real requires far more skill and perserverance than playing Guitar Hero. The difference in time factor is, when I picked up and played Guitar Hero for the first time, I could play songs straight away with the interface. With a real guitar, it could take me weeks to learn the whole song, regardless of what it is.
Sorry, but I think you should stop before this hole you've dug yourself becomes much larger.
woah, im certainly not comparing guitar heros to a real guitar!
what im saying is, PERSONALLY, in my opion, i cant get my head around anyone who would choose a fake guitar over a real one!
i used to work in a recording studio in the uk. cvc studios, based just outside of newcastle, so im very much a fan of music in general. ive also worked with bands like Stiff Little Fingers and The Levellers. so guitar and drum was a major factor of my life.
BUT also being a games nut, ive seen how long people spend on games, and from what ive seen of guitar hero, it, like any other game can be addictive to some people, so all i was saying, is if your gonna put the time into this, why not try it for real!
it really isnt that hard, all its takes is a little practice like everything else.
but like you say
|The difference in time factor is, when I picked up and played Guitar Hero for the first time, I could play songs straight away with the interface. With a real guitar, it could take me weeks to learn the whole song, regardless of what it is.|
and this i cant really argue with if all you want to do is get stright into the music. but then again, how long do people really spend on guitar heros, i bet the real fans of that game could have learnt a real guitar by now, and you could never argue that playing a real guitar is more impressive!
|Whoever said Guitar is just tapping buttons probably assumes that the game is simple. |
that was me, sorry but i was under the impression you just tapped the correct buttons in time to the riffs on screen. my mistake sorry!
