Many people think the game Guitar Hero isn’t any kind of blessing. My father says if my sister practiced a real guitar half the amount of time she spends playing ‘that game’ she’d be a skilled musician by now. Instead, she is very skilled at making a plastic guitar click in an abnormal rhythm.
Everyone in my family plays the game . . . except me. That could be because I suck at it. And for a while I agreed with my father. It was just a video game sucking everyone’s time.
Sure, it’s a phenomena. South Park made an episode about it. Bands are dying to be on it. Every kid dreams of being immortalized in a poor CGI rendition as one of the rockers. And I have to admit, (CGI aside) the game is well put together. I laughed my butt off the first time actually didn’t ‘fail’ a song and was rewarded with a nice paycheck. Which the game immediately rescinded to pay for my ‘trashed hotel room’ and ‘new leather pants’.
So while this game eats away at my children’s lives – and other family members’ too! I have to remember what it has done for us.
