Gaming Confessions: I Still Play Rock Band

Ryan at GameGrin writes: "For most people, the days of plastic axes and broken kick pedals are long gone. The sticky keys and non-silencing silence pads have either been sold or are gathering dust in the attic. Not for me though." (PS3, Rock Band, Xbox 360)

No-one should ever feel ashamed about liking a game. no matter the game. i mean that is what they are made for, to enjoy either by yourself or with others.

I'll admit, Im 41 and still like to play guitar hero and rockband with my kids. My oldest son (15) actually got inspired to play real guitar from playing these types of games. If i had been into the dance dance craze...who knows.

As far as these music games go, they are way more fun to play with others than by yourself. You can either be serious about it and really try for the score or you can be all front man style and just go crazy with all sorts of wild rock and roll antics to really entertain others in the same room.

when playing rockband, i use a gene simons ax style guitar controller and i usually play bass. Its been my thing since i was a bass player in my younger days. We turn up the volume up to get that.....feel. Until the wife comes in and says turn it down.

thats why i wouldnt buy it; im a solo gamer. thats awesome tho sounds like loads of fun. i was always bad at it, omg some people are just crazy, and im all like "what?... what!... wtf i pressed that!" *breaks guitar* *breaks ps3* *breaks friends nose* man the learning curve is crazy. im good at quick time controller buttion, none of these new jump-offs tho... :/

Oh, totally! I'm still down for Rock Band jam sessions any day. I've been playing guitar for 10 years, so that aspect gets a little old for me because it's too easy, even though it is fun.

However, Rock Band literally taught me some of the fundamentals of drumming. I started on easy, and now I play most tracks on expert. Even better, I can sit in front of an actual drum set and play pretty well. Who said video games don't teach you anything? :-D

I still play Rock Band to this day. Not as much as I used to, but I still play it. I'm just a fan of rhythm games in general, started out with Parappa and Um Jammer Lammy in the late 90's, eventually got into DDR in 2004 and then GH in 2006. I just love music, so it makes sense I'd love rhythm games too.

There's no point in being ashamed of doing something you enjoy. If you're enjoying yourself, it's not really a waste of time nor should anyone have the gall to shun you for it.
