So I have been thinking of getting this game for my son and was concerned if he would be able to play it or not. He is only 6 and does well with games like Scooby-Doo and SpongeBob, but from the ads I had seen, it looked like you need a lot of coordination to play. So I took him down to the local GameStop to let him try it out. He really never did get the hang of it, but I had a blast.

The game is really fun and very addictive. After a few songs my son was tugging on my shirt saying "Come on dad!" and I would answer, "Just a few more minutes." LOL. I think I may buy it for him anyway. Maybe he will grow into it. :cool:

Anyone else given it a try? Or recommend any other fun games that we could play together? Another game we enjoy playing together is Lego Star Wars. The only game I have for myself that he does not play is Madden Football. Hopefully he will get the hang of it soon so I can have soemone else to beat besides the CPU.

How do you play Guitar Hero?  I always wondered about this.

It's like DDR, but with your hands.

You have a small guitar that has 4 buttons (red, blue, green, yellow) on the neck where you would play chords and another button near the pickups where you "strum". As the music plays on the screen, buttons scroll by on the screen and you have to hold the right button and then strum with the beat.

As Naitch said, it is almost exactly like Dance Dance Revolution except you press buttons instead of step on them.

For all the time people spend playing this glorified air guitar machine, they could probably learn how to play a guitar for real and then they'll be able to get laid too.

Thanks.  I had no idea what DDR even was.  I myself had quite a Sega '93 Hockey fetish back in the day when you could make the guys bleed.  We spent many snowed in days playing that game.

Rossi's right about the guitar getting guys laid.  Fuck, if the guys in Death Cab for Cutie are getting laid that should about tell it all.
