Damn. Seemed like every time i played this, couple times a year, I'd end up buying a bunch of new pop punk songs.

Or, ya know, you could pick up an actual guitar and learn almost every NFG song in about six months. I realize I sound like a dick. I just never got the point of these games. If it's your thing, it's cool.

I suck at music, and know nothing about notes, chords, how to read music, I'm basically tone deaf. when I was younger I used rockband to roleplay my dreams of being in a big band.

edit: yeah I sound like a ridiculously big loser I know lol

Honestly, I don't think that sounds like a loser at all. I do tons of weird gaming shit and have spent countless dollars on expanded gaming content. Uh, I'm much more proud of my life story in the Sims than I am of my own life. Like I said, if that's your thing, it's cool. I just couldn't fathom how one could prefer the video game to the real thing, but I suppose in your case it's reasonable. But honestly, these games felt so repetitive the few times I've played them. The way the songs were graphed made no sense to me, structurally. I recommend a game called Rocksmith if you haven't got up on that. I'm going to assume you don't have a guitar since you said you suck at music but if you ever luck into one, check that shit out. I can definitely vouch that it's a solid way to learn the instrument.

I suppose not, but like I said before, these games pissed me off because they made no sense in regards to the structure of the song that's being played. I will say that it's perfect for developing coordination between your left and right hands which is 70% of being good at any instrument.

The genre has been dead for a couple years ago and there are still people spouting this crap?

Alright, I'll be back. Gonna go to the local pond and jump on some turtles.

I'm sorry, I, honestly, do not get the appeal at all. Which is weird. I love games that allow people to role play and all that. I'm into Sims, I buy Madden and NBA 2K games almost exclusively to create an athletic version of myself and build up my character. But these games are just so damn repetitive.
