2005 called.. they wondered what took you so long!

So this weekend my friend Matt emails me to say he picked up Guitar Hero 3 and a pair of wireless guitar controllers, and he wants to get the 'gang' over for a gaming evening with Guitar Hero included. Now i've heard lots about Guitar Hero and knew when I heard about it that it'd be a riot but for some reason it has taken me nearly 3 years to actually have a chance to play it. Embarrassing really given that I call myself a gamer.

We kicked off the gaming at about 8:30pm and needless to say ALL we played was Guitar Hero. I think it has to be one of the best games i've ever played, even as we finally admitted defeat a little before 1am - my friend Dave and I got us through the torturous Helicopter by Bloc Party and then (because i'd been waiting for it to show up in the set list the whole time we played) I had a jam on Iron Maiden's Number of the Beast. It was a blast and even though we struggled our way through Easy level (watching video clips of people playing it on Expert mode makes me break out in a cold sweat) we all well and truely embraced the spirit of the game - at one point I got down on my knees on a particularly long last note, and whilst deftly wobbling the 'wah' stick, lost my balance and knocked a bowl of crisps over the floor - probably not what most people would picture as a true 'rock and roll' moment!!

The next day my left arm hurt - i've never played guitar before, let alone attempted to play it for around 4 and a half hours straight but I knew that I needed this game in my life. I'm now currently deciding whether to pick up a cheap second hand PS2 (so I can get Gran Turismo back in my life again) or to just buy Guitar Hero for my PC..
