    Default GH World Tour

    Wasn't sure where to post this, but I'll ask anyways. Guitar Hero World Tour officially has VH on board. I noticed two songs on the list and seen the VH poster in the recording studio. Is this as far as it goes for VH content? Anyone have the scoop? Mike?....hehe.

    Two songs? The only Van Halen song in the game is "Hot For Teacher", but theres also the Eddie solo on "Beat It".

    I read a while ago that the president of one of the companies making the game, or something like that, let slip in an interview that they would be making more games focusing on just one band (as they did with Aerosmith), and that Van Halen would be one they would like to do.

    I know a Metallica one is on the way, as is a Beatles game, but haven't heard anything more about Van Halen, or if there will be more downloadable songs for GH:WT

    I hate Guitar Hero, Rock Band and any other game that has kids playing "Dance-Dance Revolution" on a guitar neck or fake drums.

    If these kids spent half the time learning to play guitar or drums they would learn a lot more about accomplishing something real.

    Honestly, if any of you are parents who were thinking of buying Guitar Hero for your kids.... DON'T DO IT!!!!!

    One step away from them picking the button that doesn't shock them to get cheese.

    Jesus Christ. Here we go. As soon as someone mentions Guitar Hero on an internet message board there's always some holier-than-thou asshole spewing off about how real instruments are so much better than fake, plastic ones. No fucking shit? Really? I know plenty of people that play real instruments and *GASP* love Guitar Hero and Rock Band. It's a fun game. Anyone half-wit knows that playing the game is nothing like playing real instruments. By the way. I bought my son a guitar for Christmas last year and I'm buying him Guitar Hero World Tour this year.

    I'm a drummer and I played Guitar Hero and liked it. I don't think it's a bad thing. Of course, you want an interested kid to play the real instrument but in moderation, GH is ok.

    I think anything that inspires people to have fun - and appreciate GOOD music (no Britney / Katy / etc) crap is fantastic. Rock got a HUGE boost from Guitar Hero and Rockband - bring more of them on! As well, these games will also inspire kids to pick up a real guitar - and given them some appreicate of how difficult it can be to play these tunes.

    I wish all the people that play war games would join the marines. I wish everyone that played a flight simulator would learn to actually fly an airplane. I wish everyone that played Tiger Woods would learn to actually play golf. I wish everyone that played Madden would man-up and play actualy football.

    It's not a replacement for an instrument, its an alternative and people don't realise that for some reason. Headbanging doesn't make metal any heavier and we still do that, people like to dance, what's wrong with another pointless way of enjoying rhythm?

    Someone takes their video games too seriously. My daughter plays guitar hero AND guitar. She like crap music and she likes rock and roll. Just like I did, and just like most kids do. Get a job or a hobby, and you'll find you don't have time to worry about stupid shit like this.

    My sarcasm was obvious, right?

    I'm an avid gamer and I have played guitar for over ten years now. They aren't mutually exclusive things. I enjoy Guitar Hero as a challenge and I enjoy learning a new song as a challenge. I also play shooters, but I'm not racing to enlist.

    It's entertainment guys. It's more interactive than listening to a CD, visually more stimulating than reading a book, and more personal than a movie. I will never understand the stigmas some people place on such a fun hobby.

    Indeed. Besides, I wonder what video games Pol Pot, Adolf Hilter and Augusto Pinochet played when they were kids.
