Beyond releasing 1,000 games in a short period of time? Well, the fact that there's little "playing guitar" involved. It was more of a glorified whack-a-mole with a guitar-shaped input device.

activision went full retarded pulling a CoD giving the game so many releases that people started losing interest. The releases after G3 didn't have a song list better than it and introduced more and more microtransactions.

Probably oversaturation but I don't have a single fact to back that up

I got sick of them when they started trying to compete with Rock Band.

There were 14 Guitar Hero games between 2008 and 2009.

You tell me.

Along with just the yearly releases of Guitar Hero games, you had Rock Band as a major competitor, as well as dozens of knock off games clogging store shelves.

I was always, more of a Rock Band guy, because Harmonix treated that game more as a platform and most of your music carried over from game to game, and they didn't release nearly as many titles as Activision did with the GH brand. The market, however, wasn't large enough to hold so many titles flooding the market all at once. There still is a market for it,and I believe was primed for a comeback, but unfortunately GH Live and Rock Band 4 launched around the same time, and ended up squelching any hope we had for a resurgence in the genre.

I have RB4 and really enjoy playing it, but it's too bad the sub-genre has almost no hope in taking off again now.

Nice meme. GH3 only gets remembered because of fags wanking over TTFAF, despite the fact that most of the setlist is boring trash that is only tolerated because it allows you to unlock a few better songs.

For the thread, too many titles in too short of time. I generally disliked Rock Band for having shitty guitars and feeling too sterile, but apparently people liked the DLC method.

So if I wanted to get gh, I shouldn't get gh3? Isn't there a mod that allows you to access community made songs?

Christopher Johnson

You should absolutely get GH3, it's the best in the series unless you're wanting to play the other instruments too but you're better off with Rock Band 3 for that. There are ways to load community made songs into both of them for multiple platforms.

No, GH3 has the absolute worst gameplay, presentation, and character designs of any game in the series. It's an abomination.

changed the guitar
changed the controls
added shitty pop music like fall out boy, katy perry, skrillex etc
used shitty modern online xD DLC mandatory to get new songs

not boring

Even then, that's about 5 memorable/decent songs. Comparatively, World Tour had:

-Purple Haze
-Satch Boogie
-Sweet Home Alabama
-Crazy Train
-Mr. Crowley
-Never Too Late
-Do It Again
-Trapped Under Ice
-Hot For Teacher
-Ramblin' Man
-Hotel California

The list was stacked with classic guitar anthems.

Gitadora did it originally and far better, but I haven't heard much of it for years now ever since Konmai practically closed off Bemani to the outside world.

Charles Price

It's kind of funny, they definitely released too many games too quickly, but most of them retained a decent level of quality. I even enjoyed Live for what it was.

Then again, I've never played 5, Warriors, or Band Hero, so maybe I got lucky.

the same 10 classic rock songs that everyone has heard a billion times
FUCKING THIS. And you want to know why we're forced to listen to those same goddamn massively overplayed classiv rock tracks whenever someone turns on the radio? It's because the absolute Jews at Clearchannel own almost every single radio station, meaning they only play songs that they paid for the rights to. For example you'll never hear a quality Zepplin song like Achilles Last Stand, you'll only hear their singles that got replayed fucking ten thousand times.

Ethan Gray

For example you'll never hear a quality Zepplin song like Achilles Last Stand, you'll only hear their singles that got replayed fucking ten thousand times.

You'll never hear Zepplin in any music game officially. But more to the point, what's the point of a guitar-based game if you're going to ignore the most iconic songs written for it? It'd be like making a piano-based music game and purposely omitting Elton John/Billy Joel/Ben Folds/Connor Oberst

Gavin Hughes

Guitar Hero Iron Maiden when?

David Brown
David Brown

If Elton John/Billy Joel/etc were spammed on the radio (which they are) and had been in every other Keyboard Hero game then yeah, they should be ignored. Or better yet pick a song that isn't as well known. I haven't listened to much Elton John but Billy Joel's got a bunch of great songs besides Piano Man but Piano Man is all that would ever be in one of these games because these games appeal to the same people that unironically listen to classic rock radio all day every day and apparently according to you they should. Or, like I hinted at above, try and expose people to new music through your games by picking songs that people haven't already picked up through osmosis.

William Long

From my experience the audio mixing in Warriors was garbage. On top of that, the songs that were already in rockband tended to have better guitar charts in it than in GH6. Never played Band Hero on consoles but it was actually pretty good on DS since it had an entirely different setlist

Camden Thomas

It's a fun chart, maybe someone has converted it for FoFiX/Phase Shift. I'd suggest looking around.

Jacob Bennett

Clone Hero
When Harmonix made both series
Not every chart. A few off the top of my head I can think of would be Trapped Under Ice, Cliffs of Dover, Crazy for You, Carry Me Home, and Infected. There's alot of songs that never transferred over sadly.

I only have a Rock Band Drum kit and drums aren't implemented yet but i think two former Guitar Hero champions (not sure) have switched over to it.
UKOGmonkey and Acai. Most of their videos are them playing either Clone Hero, Guitar Hero or Rock Band.

Jaxson Walker

Ah. I may stick to Phase Shift until all the instruments are added, plus charting with EOF is really easy, recently did Venom's "Don't Burn The Wtich" for guitar, fun chart.

Are there any cheap and optimal rockband drumsets (electronic cheap sets) for, of course, cheap?

Robert Moore

The original series went wrong when they milked the FUCK out of it. 2009 alone had:
2 band themed spinoffs
a compilation of songs from past games
2 DS games
a main series game
a pop-themed reskin of said main series game

The fact they gave out Van Halen for free if you bought 5 shows even Activision realized how insane it had gotten.

As for what went wrong with Live?
replace all the crazy characters and venues with full motion video
a Top 40 soundtrack with only a small number of songs one would want to play
GHTV had a load of actual great songs. However, you were at the mercy of when the songs would "air" if you wanted to play them
only way to play a GHTV song when you wanted was to either grind for free picks, or buy a 24 hour unlimited pass with real money
no way to permanently buy and download songs to play whenever

It's a real shame. The new gameplay was actually interesting, and would have worked in a game that wasn't a FMV microtransation mess.
