Guitar Hero Will Rock You All Night Long

Last week I was chatting online with some of you, and atoxicsparkle had the guts to admit she's totally addicted to Guitar Hero. Let me start off by saying, I'm so glad I'm not the only one because on more than one occasion my friends and I have gone out for cocktails and ended up at home playing Guitar Hero into the wee hours, and secondly, I'm not sure I've ever seen anything cuter than Atox rocking out to the game while her niece Savannah joins in the fun.

What is Guitar Hero? Just

Guitar Hero is a music video game for the PlayStation 2 video game console - although it was recently released for Xbox as well.

It features a guitar-shaped peripheral (resembling a miniature Gibson SG) as the primary controller to simulate the playing of an electric guitar. It's quickly gained a reputation as one of the best rhythm games to come around in awhile.

The game gives you all the excitement and thrill of being a rock star without leaving your living room, bedroom or office, and features unique characters and concert venues that grow in size as your music career progress. The title includes more than 30 licensed rock songs including tracks made famous by such legendary artists as Boston, Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Bowie, Sum 41, Ozzy Osbourne, Audioslave, White Zombie, Franz Ferdinand and The Ramones.

The officially licensed Guitar Hero SG Controller was designed specifically for use with Guitar Hero. This guitar-shaped controller is held just like a real guitar and features five responsive fret buttons, a durable strum bar, a working whammy bar, and stylized START and SELECT buttons that resemble a guitar's actual volume knobs.

You won't be sorry you picked up the guitar!

Well, geeksugar, you are definitely not the only one playing... Daniel Dae Kim from Lost said that a lot of the cast members also played the game. He often played with the cast and his own kids.
