Stephen vs. Guitar Hero

If you don’t subscribe to our comment feed, you’ve probably missed the saga involving my comparison of a Guitar Hero controller to a Kidz Beatz toy guitar from last year. The picture that accompanied the post shows up a lot on Google Image searches, so we’ve gotten a trickle of commentators who take me far too seriously. As my replies get more and more over the top, I keep expecting people to figure out that I’m joking, but so far that hasn’t happened.

I’ll point out that Rock Band has just come out, and that I’m likely to be just as much a hater of Rock Band as I am of Guitar Hero. If anyone wishes to buy me the entire Rock Band kit to try to convince me otherwise, be my guest.

  1. I’m positively bowled over by people’s ignorance in defending Guitar Hero from your clearly intentionally-silly post. Wow.

  2. I am all about suggesting changes to RockBand … and bonus points if people take it too seriously 🙂 Maybe we can do it on the podcast (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

  3. Oh, that’s fantastic. “I can play it IN the box!”

    I especially love the all the “Nobody cool would want to play a silly-looking purple guitar!” Have we forgotten Prince’s Superbowl performance so quickly? Tch.

  4. Oh man… I’m just going back and reading that now. I remember laughing at your original post, but boy… these commenters have absolutely no clue what humor is all about.

  5. Okay, just because I’ve gotten to play Rock Band now, other than the freakin’ strummer on the guitar being iffy at best, the game’s awesome. Especially for having a group of people over. Oh, and the drum kit’s just too cool. 🙂 Yes, I do like to live vicariously through my bachelor friends who have nothing better to do with their income than buy the latest consoles/games when they come out. 😉

  6. Jeeeeeeeeeeeeez…

    the hilarity of those comments, and how the “Old MacDonald” becomes a classic rock staple of any axe-weilding tween is expertly played.

    well done to twist the minds of the poor saps. even a personal jab in there with the shampoo comment… boo!

    they don’t know to fear Dr. Boom !!
