The one thing that sucks about the newest series of hit games where you play “musical instruments” is that you spend hours learning how to play on a plastic toy that you are never going to use after you beat the game. Enter Guitar Rising, GameTank’s newest production.
Guitar Rising will allow players to use any real electric guitar and actively learn how to play real cords. There will be an adapter where players hook up their guitars to their PC or Mac and start playing songs. The game progresses in difficulty to help those that have never played a guitar before. It took me about two years to become even remotely good at playing the guitar, while just the other day I went from being a complete idiot at Guitar Hero to passing every song on medium relatively well. This game seems like one of the better ideas to come out of the video game industry. No release date has been set.
