Well, lets see. You try to insult me by calling me immature purely because I am a teenager. Irony. You try to insult me because I have a joke on my profile about a member of these boards? Good one, bud. I never said they couldn't think for themselves did I? Oh, wow. Lets reread everything I posted.
"Ugh. Another good band being ruined by Guitar Hero.
At the Rise Against show last night there were like 100 kids wearing Rock Band and Guitar Hero shirts with their dads............ugh"
"Well it is ruining them. You obviously don't know how the community around paramore was before this. It really isn't helping. I don't care if someone recommends them or they hear them at a club, or hear them on radio. That's wonderful, I am completely happy for all of paramore. I am just so sick of talking to a friend about a band that ends up on one of those games, and some random kid jumping in and saying "oh I know them! they play that one song on guitar hero/rock band/etc."
"Awesome, another amazing band gaining fake ass fans. Wonderful. 10,000 bucks not one of those kids will ever recognize Underoath's first album.
I don't like it because the people aren't really hearing the band. They are playing a completely over-simplified version of one song on plastic instruments by bands that have so many more songs, and 9 out of 10 of those people won't even bother to listen to more than just their singles. Then they talk about what a big fan they are when they would never have even listened to them had their music not been on a fucking video game. What is even worse? People talk about how good they are at Rock Band and Guitar Hero when you can buy a guitar for less than that game even costs and then, you aren't limited to radiofame singularity that is picked by a bunch of 20, 30, and 40 year old people who, chances are, don't even listen to the bands.
Edit: Desperate Times, Desperate Measures? Really? What did I say? Oh. Wow. It's their latest single. GASP. For fuck's sake."
"They won't be due to the fact that there isn't a popular enough song on AWKIF, and they already have the so-called 'good ones' from Riot!
You obviously misunderstand me. Go pick up a guitar, or drum kit and try to find a scrolling multi-colored note pad scrolling down your screen. Also, you didn't discover shit. The game handed it to you on a silver platter.
Actually, it is different. These video games limit what you are going to hear the first time by a massive factor, and it leaves you no choice as to if you want to hear more. It is completely biased toward the developer's choice. You could hear a number of songs on the radio, on youtube/mtv/fuse or wherever a music video is played. Word of mouth would be the best, in my opinion because it allows a person you trust to give you a personal opinion of the band's best songs.
Also, don't mistake this for selfish. I just want people to have a choice of what they hear. You calling this selfish shows that you decide things much to quickly, and in my opinion, immaturely.
That doesn't matter. Anyone who can play a song on guitar, can play it on any other guitar. It just won't sound as clean due to lower quality materials and less precision in the design."
Let's see.....that's a no.
You're 21 and you call me immature, but you mistake debating for arguing? I really hope you don't vote.
