evilangela: With Guitar Hero or Rock Band, it doesn't take long to get a feeling of being able to play well-known music on the guitar. And doing it as a Rock Star. Heck, with Rock Band and three friends, you can get the feeling that you and your friends are playing the music as a band - and the drums can get pretty close to reality, apparently, and the singing part requires actual singing.
How much time would it take learning the guitar to be able to actually play Bark at the Moon, Hangar 18, or Knights of Cydonia? I can guarantee it takes a LOT more time investment than I spent getting good enough to beat Guitar Hero 2 on expert.
That said, just playing Rock Band for a week has me seriously considering learning to play the drums.
Elmore: I like Guitar Hero, but when it got to the point where I'd have to practice for an hour to be able to pass the next song I decided I'd be better off spending that time learning something new on my real guitar. However, it's still fun to go back to Guitar Hero from time to time and play a gig at Stonehenge.
