GP Blogger Natetodamax writes his opinions, "Sadly, it was going to happen sooner or later. I saw it coming on the horizon, and in a way I understood what was happening. But there was a part of me that was deeply sad, a part of me that remembered what Guitar Hero once meant to me. I am, of course, referring to the recent shutdown of the Guitar Hero franchise. Ever since the series was turned into another slave of Activision, I have continually lost interest and at the same time saw the end approaching. Frankly, it was only a matter of time before Bobby Kotick officially ran the franchise into the ground. I am in no way surprised to see it go, because there was no way I could see the series continuing on the cycle that it was on. But as I sit here and write this, I'm constantly reminded of the good memories I had with the early Guitar Hero games like Guitar Hero II, the game that, in a way, sorta changed my life."
