The Life, Death, and Resurrection of Guitar Hero

Guitar Hero was a niche series that found incredible success in the face of considerable odds, so why did it fail, and where is it now?

How could this ever be described as a niche series

The reboot had some great ideas guitar hero tv was awesome but the new controller sucked

Yeah and the songs were garbage. It used to have classic rock and then they put Rihanna songs in that one.

Profchaos504d ago

Yeah they made some poor choices there

Related story: Me and my friend had a month-long $150 bet to see who could get the highest score on a song that my friend picked, and he picked Waking Up in Vegas by Katy Perry.

It was the most awful month of my life man, just playing Waking Up In Vegas over and over and over. I'd get #1 on the leaderboards and then he'd overtake it and then i'd overtake it etc etc etc. 100% every time, just using star power at different moments for minuscule increases in points lmao.

I won. Im imagining im still #1 on those leaderboards

GH will go down as a timeless GEM. Even GH live was alright, GHTV was where it really shined, but still. Yeh the controller did not need to be redesigned, but once you get used to it, it is actually pretty damn fun. Sometimes feeling better than the original.

I think they just came out with way too many, way too fast and gamers got tired of it.

Guitar Hero Metallica was the last GOOD one if you ask me.
I still play 3, world tour, and Metallica at least weekly.
I love them to death.
Some of the most fun ever especially after getting tipsy or drunk with friends.

You should check out rocksmith , it's very satisfying.
It will seriously take a beginner and teach them how to play a real guitar.

I have rocksmith and love it.
I wish it had a slightly better selection of dlc songs, but otherwise it's fantastic!
