  • Activision Releasing Far Fewer Guitar Hero Games In 2010

    The music genre isn't the star child it used to be. It continues to be a solid performer for both Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but interest has waned.

    Hey, I don't have anything against old people. Decades from now, when every game is motion controlled, youngsters will be laughing at me, too. But for the time being, it's the other way around. The Faster Times recently ran a series of photos collected from Flickr chronicling a series of older men and women trying their hand at ye ol' Guitar...

    It's interesting to find out how rockers feel about music games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Yeah, they're just games, and we just have fun with them, but it must be surreal to have your art, job and craft appear in a video game. If you've poured your life-blood and passion into a musical composition, it must be really, really weird to have...
