I Hate The “Guitar Hero” Franchise!

I’m a music lover, and I loved games like Amplitude and Guitar Hero when they FIRST were released.  But averaging 4 games a year is getting ridiculous!


Guitar Hero’s strategy of changing their titles instead of giving their titles a number is an annoying strategy for us the gamer.  No one cares that you’re coming out with the “Greatest Hits For 2009” or the fact that there’s a WEEKLY set of Downloadble Content (DLC).  I’ve supported Activision for their previous releases, and I know this Franchise is a money maker, but Just End it already. In 4 years, there have been 15 different versions of Guitar Hero. And many of you crave for more?

So let’s take a look at this. 15 Different iterations of Guitar Hero, PLUS Hundreds of Downloadable Content. No one sees a problem with this? To my knowledge no other developer has come close to 15 titles within the 4 year mark, Pokemon included!  Looking back, I too was pulled into the Guitar Hero hype, I bought the guitars, decked them out with dope stickers and got a tattoo… ok I lied about the tat, but everything else is the truthness.

  1. 2005 Guitar Hero

  10. 2007 Guitar Hero III Mobile
  11. 2008 Guitar Hero: On Tour
  12. 2008 Guitar Hero III Backstage Pass
  13. 2008 Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades
  14. 2008 Guitar Hero World Tour Mobile
  15. TBA Guitar Hero Modern Hits

Before I finish my rant on a Franchise striking rich while the rest of the world struggles financially, what do you think?  Do you feel that Activision is just a squirrel trying to get a nut?  Or The Rich staying Richer, while the Po stay Po’er?

We’re not ALL falling for your Jedi Mind Tricks Activsion.  Of course you can pass.  I don’t need to see your papers.  Move Along… Move Along!
