How many hours did you
waste spend playing Guitar Hero, or one of its many versions? I know it is one of the video games that caught my attention – and held it – for a very long time. I had several versions of the game on the PlayStation 3 and the Wii, and even though I didn’t have a guitar controller for the latter, I still kept at it. And I am not alone in this, for sure. (I did have the special edition Aerosmith guitar controller for the PS3, though!)
While the games were a lot of fun, there was one big criticism about the game: it didn’t really teach players how to use a guitar in the real world. Sure, you still had keep the beat most of the time. And it was easy enough to pretend that you were a rock star. At the end of the day, however, you still couldn’t play real guitar for sh&t.
