Ok, how about the pro mode feature? I'd say that's bridging the gap between a gamer and a musician quite well. Even if playing real instruments is more fun for you, what's wrong with also playing the game? There are plenty of drummers/guitarists etc that play Rock Band all the time. in fact, most people that can 100% the higher tier songs on expert without even trying are real musicians. There are also people that aren't musicians at all that come over and play rock band, and when they started they had no idea what a harmony was, their rhythm was completely off, and they were extremely terrible at the game. now some of them can point out harmonies when they hear one and can play on expert. so I think the game's definitely having some positive effects on people and calling it merely a game is a bit unfair.

Sorry Yohandi, but in terms of rhythm games, I'd have to agree with Charles. Especially being a musician, it's much more appealing to bust out my guitar, turn on the amp and just blast away. I can improvize without being penalized, even... action games are something completely different. Playing music in real life won't get you charged for crime.

why play GTA, when you can actually steal cars and beat up people in real life? Why play Mortal kombat? might as well do real fatalities since that'll be way more realistic. oh and tank commander? c'mon, use a real tank! much more fun that way

About a game like Guitar Hero, I ask: Why pretend when you can do it for real? I would rather plug my electric guitar into my amp, crank the volume up on my computer or stereo speakers, put in a CD or tape, and play along with my favorites, or work on learning a new one, or jam with other musicians than use something artificial.

Yeah but here's the thing. how will you know if you can play it when you actually aren't even willing to try the game out? just because a sighted person tells you so? I had sighted people telling me oh you can't play rock band, so don't even bother purchasing it. you gotta see the colored games. well, I'm playing rock band. and to those asking how do I play it when I'm blind, I won't even bother answering that question, mainly because we've answered it plenty of times and it makes absolutely no difference. Isn't it quite obvious that video games have sound? do you guys somehow think that just cause it's called a video game this means that it's video exclusive and a totally muted gaming experience? *sigh*. someone mentioned they don't play rock band because they're musicians. all I gotta say to that is wow. I really hope you don't always have that outlook on life.

Hi Liam,
I totally agree. If I know there is a game out there that a blind person can play that may indeed be intended for sighted players, then I am willing to give it 100% concentration. Hell, I would even go out and buy the console it was designed for, just to play that game. But if you can't play it, because you need a degree of sight, then what is the point in wasting investments and time just to completely end up embarrassing yourself with it because you can't play properly like your sighted peers can? In my opinion that's just prejudice.
Regards,
Damien.
