I'm a gamer. have been since I was a kid. My interest didn't wain or waver as an adult either. I've played lots of games. I especially love first person shooters of course. I like all kinds of games but one game that just didn't look like I would like was Guitar Hero. Playing a plastic guitar while trying to keep in rhythm with multi-colored buttons on screen didnt seem like my cup of tea. Nonetheless when my friend got Guitar Hero 3 for his X-Box 360 this weekend he asked my to try it. "Sure, what the hell, I'll give anything a try once". I say to him. I grab up the guitar and choose "Slow Ride" by Foghat as my first song. I figure this is going to be a piece of cake. It ain't. It kicked my butt the first 5 times I tried to play it. But in doing I realized something....I had misjudged this game greatly. This game rocks! I was one of the kids who used to sit in his room and play air guitar all night to Guns'n Roses,and Led Zepplin and an endless number of other bands because I didn't have an once of real musical talent in my whole body. This game is like being a teenager with the air guitar, except you feel like you really are playing something. After I mastered "Foghat" I tried "Story of My Life" By Social Distortion (Great song BTW). It was actually a little bit easier but still if its your first time it'll put you through the ringer. Many many over great songs on there. All I can say is I hope my wife caught the hints of what i wanted for my birthday this month.
