A Lesson In Sucking At Life

As I was checking out the video to "Through The Fire And The Flames" by the mighty Dragonforce on YouTube:


my eyes wandered to the "comments" section (probably during a keyboard moment). To my horror, I saw comments like:

"even i can play it 98% right in GH3 (easy).. no way in hell i would even try it on medium.. my fav song to play in GH3:D "

"that is so hard 2 play!! bcuz i hav gh3 and i cant play dat song! "

What the hell? They look at some amazing instrumental feats and comment on how hard that is to play on some freakin D&D computer nerd game? What about appreciating the music, or at the very least the technical level represented in the music?

At some point, a Wii or whatever game is gonna be introduced wherein the game is played and rated using a lubricated holster the size of half a pencil (wild guess based on the what I assume the test level of these "guys" to be). From that day on, there will be no lines in comic book stores, there will be a drastic decline in all of the "IRL I'm 68 kilos of 45% bodyfat hunchback loser but in WoW I'm a 120 kilo Epic Conan-like Warrior" games, and a lot of "guys" will go into their rooms and lose ten kilos the HARD way, if ya know what I'm sayin'.

GH3?!? What a bunch of sizzys! I can play that song on my air guitar. Blind-folded. With my teeth! It's not difficult at all!

Yeah, 'cause the songs that are diffcult in a game sure must be difficult in real life and the other way around...

Somehow, this fit's in here. Guess who's made it in the music biz and who's the gaming nerd...

Aren't "before and after" pictures and sequences usually left to right?

Yes, you're right. But they are. To the left, before buying Wii. To the right, after two days of playing Guitar Hero III....
:-D

Wilhelm said...

....LOL.

It all depends on the pov, doesn't it? From guitar skillz the "before and after" sequence is definitely backwards. However, if you were hawking some snake-oil derived pill which supposedly increases your IQ, then it's definitely in the right order.

You do dig those Les Paul players, don't you? ;-)
