    Poll included. Agree or disagree with the stated statement.

    My friend had a little tiff with me after I said "I won't like Rockband" claiming that i've never played it, therefore cannot just assume I won't like it. I've played Guitar Hero and Singstar before and viewed the whole concept of it to be utter ******** encrusted in *****. The beauty of gaming is the freedom of doing whatever you want and make it as fantastical as you can - not being told what to do, when to do it and how to do it (that being said, I rock at Singstar... ish).

    Question for you to decide. Will I like Rockband if I hated Guitar Hero and disliked Singstar?

    They're very similar [Guitar Hero and Rock Band], you'll probably dislike it if you don't play it for the songs.

    Well you might not - but you never know until you try it so give it a go

    Agreed.

    I used to hate GH, then I liked it for a while, not I hate it again. RB only made me want to play that style of game again for a few different tracks, mainly being the Portal song.

    To answer your question in short: probably not. It's a very similar genre and there's nothing wrong with making an assumption. However you could just try it anyway, just in case you do enjoy it.

    I just thought I'd point out that I don't agree with the statement in red. I think the beauty of gaming as a whole is just playing whatever you enjoy playing, no matter what it is. But we all have different opinions. :smile:

    You could try drums?
    But I doubt you'd like RB if you don't like the others, although RB is better compared to GH.
    There's no harm in trying it anyway just in case :/

    Yep, if you don't like Guitar Hero or Sing Star, you won't like Rock Band. Pretty much common sense.

    The concept is almost exactly the same, so no, you won't.

    2 - I made this thread because I wanted to. :indiff: The same way you came in here and decided to be a complete prick. :cute:

    3 - "lame" should never ever ever ever ever be used as an adjective.
