No I play guitar hero because I need POINTS
I perhaps phrased that badly. I shouldn't have said that playing an instrument requires only slightly more skill; obviously I am aware Guitar Hero is a watered down version of the experience of playing an instrument and requires like skill, finesse and subtlety (I played clarinet for a few years when I was younger). The point I'm trying to make is that they're many of the same skills: sure, each instrument has idiosyncracies like blowing or hitting a string correctly, but the elements involved in playing songs is essentially the same. I might as well say that, when I blow through the reed correctly and cover the holes or push the buttons on the clarinet correctly, I get a nice tune like a hamster looking for a treat.Island said:I'm guessing you don't play an instrument, but as a musician let me tell you playing a real instrument takes an immense amount of mental and physical skill in comparison to guitar hero. people can pick up a guitar hero guitar and play it on easy the first time they try. try an pick up a cello and see if you can just play it. people spend their entire lives perfecting there craft as a musician. people play guitar hero for a couple of months and can beat it on the hardest setting.
This is a hilarious quote.Malygris said:"When I push the button, I hear Keith Richards," Marcus explained. "When I fail to push the button (or press the wrong button, or press it late), I don't hear Keith Richards. Therefore, I am Keith Richards!"
... Why would I want to? I don't play video-games so I can pretend to play instruments at parties - I prefer my games to involve things I can't reasonably do in real life thanks.Kiutu said:Can you play it online though? Or with ANY friend, even those who dont know how to play a real instrument?Gildan Bladeborn said:I'm trying and failing to envision a universe where I would want to imagine I was Keith Richards. Anyhow, I don't love Guitar Hero as I actually play a real musical instrument and therefore don't need to pretend to in a videogame.
No, it took them this long to support the conclusion so many derived with minimal effort.Ninja_X said:It took them this long to figure this out?
Please prove to be the exception to the rule!crazyhaircut94 said:I thought I liked it cause I like colors, challenges and playing fake guitar (even though I can actually play real guitar)
Apparently this professor flunked English.seem like the stupidest games on Earth
I wouldn't take the syllogism too literally.paypuh said:That assessment could be made for almost any game.
When I kill opposing forces, I am a soldier a la CoD. When I don't, I die. Therefore, I am a soldier.
When I pull off the right attack, I am Cloud Strife. When I don't, I die. Therefore, I am Cloud Strife.
