Rock Band has been a genre defining experience ever since it made its debut back in 2006. No other Music-based videogame has captured the masses worldwide quite like Rock Band. No longer was it all about battling the computer-controlled A.I. characters or simply battling your best friend/stranger. Rock Band brought the “band” experience, which entailed playing cooperatively with a group of friends in order to jam out to some of the greatest rock songs to ever be released. With Rock Band 3, MTV Games, Electronic Arts and Harmonix took this party-based system to the next level and have shaped the way future music-based games will play and help you to play a real instrument.
