Very interesting read over at IGN about Musical Gaming and how the genre has hit a wall so to speak.
http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/969/969689p1.html

I agree with the author that I'm pretty much done with musical rhythm gaming; I quit at Rock Band. I still have them (GH2, GH3. RB) and still play them; but probably won't be buying any more games in these series (unless I get a hellagood deal) and won't be downloading any new songs via DLC.

I'm just tired of it.

I played Rockband, and Guitar Hero 3.
While they are fun, I got bored after 2 hours.

Don't get me wrong, it's fun to play these games. But I can only handle them in small doses.

I found it got boring quickly. Now my Guitar Hero controller and the Rock Band Drums just gather a layer of dust.

YES I don't play Xbox 360 anymore.

Well I'd play GH3 more If it didn't lag on my TV. Other than that RB and my other GH's are collecting dust.

Lol. Good read. I agree with Kamahl.
Now, I only play maybe 1-2 hours a week, but it's still fresh and fun IMO. Maybe that's because I've got someone hooking me up with new songs every week. Idk. I'd never buy those shitty "knock-offs" if you will. I stick with Rock Band and Guitar Hero, and am just getting back into GH. I eventually will stop though.

I knew this was coming. Friends of mine who aren't hardcore gamers like myself say no one plays them anymore.

Hundreds of thousands of people still play it, but the article is saying that the constant shitting out of titles is getting old.

Still doesn't change the fact that I see it being less popular as a personal observation.

i wonder if the songs will also come as DLC or if it will have an export code or something. Id like to play "Song 2" for example, i dont see me buying that unless the rest are songs i love, i doubt that so like i said, i hope it comes as DLC

I think i'm the only person who never bought any of these games when they came out. Never appealed to me.
