As a musician myself, I'm sick of hearing people saying that Guitar Hero and Rock Band are ruining kids' abilities to play music. They're not. If a kid wants to learn how to play guitar, trust me, he or she will. Nobody is deciding to not learn real instruments because of these games.
Guitar Hero and Rock Band are just two harmless and fun party games to play with your friends. I don't play many video games at all, but I do enjoy Rock Band. Don't be so hard on them.

Oh come on. The game was intentionally made so that actual musicians wouldn't have an advantage over other players just because they already knew how to play guitar. And there's nothing wrong with that. It wouldn't be a party game if that was the case.
