Yes, it’s true. My husband and I both spent a good part of our Friday evening playing Guitar Hero II with the teenager. It was embarassing. The embarassment didn’t stem from the fact that we were playing, but, at how bad we were. There’s something completely humbling about seeing “Song Failed” come up when you’re a fairly seasoned musician, especially since it was on the easy level.
I’ll have to admit, I didn’t know very many of the songs. Maybe I’ll just let my son play the songs and I’ll take up a new activity—“sweatin’ to Guitar Hero!”
