It wasn’t that long ago that Guitar Hero was the hottest thing since sliced bread. People of all walks of life were playing it to death, and it helped keep the music business alive for a while. Before Guitar Hero died out, the bands that were able to capitalize on it, like Metallica and Aerosmith, made a ton of money in royalties in an age where people stopped paying for music a long time ago.
I remember very fondly when Guitar Hero became the hottest video game. It was a great idea, and for a moment it actually helped keep the music business alive.
