Re: 16 yr Old drops out of School to focus on his Guitar Hero career
To those who'd say that this is a fad...I imagine the same was said when karaoke first started. They are not identical concepts, but have their similarities. I don't expect these Guitar Hero type games to completly phase out over the years...maybe they have reached their peak though.
Disclaimer...I play Rock Band myself, and yes I know it is a "fake" way to play instruments, but it sure is fun. Maybe my parties are lame, but at any gathering bust out the Rock Band and you've got your guests entertained.
I don't get the "professional" Guitar Hero player thing though, but thats just me.
