The day Guitar Hero died

Flattr this!

Es ist nicht so, dass ich die letzten Guitar Hero Verwurstungen genossen hätte. Guitar Hero 3 und Guitar Hero Metallica mal ausgenommen, erschien die lezten Jahre nur noch ein lauer Aufguss nach dem nächsten – und dennoch ist der Tod dieser Serie nichts, worüber ich mich lustig machen würde. Immerhin saß ich die letzten Jahre öfters mit einer Plastikgitarre auf meiner Couch, als mit einem guten Buch. Und das will was heißen.

Traurig: Mittlerweile könnte ich sicher selber Gitarre spielen, hätte ich die Zeit anders investiert. Bye, bye Guitar Hero! Zum Glück habe ich ja noch mein(e) Rock Band.

Das folgende Abschiedsvideo stammt von TheWarpZone – wer mitsingen will, ist herzlich eingeladen. I started singin‘,… Bye-bye fake guitar playing guy…

A long, long time ago…
In my college dorm room
Guitar Hero used to made me smile
And I knew if I had no fear
That I could make that fake crowd cheer
And it would make me happy for a while.

But February made me shiver
With every blog post I would quiver
Bad news on the Internet
No more colorful frets

I couldn’t believe my tearing eyes
When I read what Kotick did decide
I really wish it was a lie
The day Guitar Hero died

So bye-bye fake guitar playing guy
This decision Activision made
Has left us deprived
Them good ol‘ boys were drinking red bull and sprite
Singin rock band would have been a good buy
Rock band would have been a good buy

Did you lose your faith in games
When you couldn’t perfect Through the Fire and Flames
Did your Star power get too low?

Do you believe what happened here?
Did this game save Slash’s music career?
And could you teach me how to play in Easy mode?

Well, I know you love your C-O-D
And are planning Modern Warfare 3
Your guns replaced guitars
And you tomahawked our hearts

I was a lonely teenage legend of rock
With a Boston t-shirt and superman socks
But I found I was nothin‘ but talk
The day Guitar Hero died

I started singin‘,
Bye-bye fake guitar playing guy
This decision Activision made
Has left us deprived
Them good ol‘ boys were drinking red bull and sprite
Singin rock band would have been a good buy
Rock band would have been a good buy

At Neversoft, designers screamed
Musicians cried, and the gamers dreamed?
But we were out of tokens;
And the PS2’s were broken

And the songs I 5-starred all the time
Like Free Bird and Sweet Child of Mine
Are stuck on replay in my mind
The day Guitar Hero Died

We were singin‘
Bye-bye fake guitar playing guy
This decision Activision made
Has left us deprived
Them good ol‘ boys were drinking red bull and sprite
Singin rock band would have been a good buy
Rock band would have been a good buy
