Guitar Hero 1 is better than guitar hero 3 for many reasons.

Contention 1 -Guitar Hero 1 has a better song selection than Guitar Hero 3.

GH1 has 47 songs, GH3 has 73. This means that GH1 is focused on not numbers, but quality. Jimmy Hendrix, Ozzy Osbourne, and Black Sabbath are only 3 of the great artists included on GH1. GH3 includes Heart, Foghat, and Tenasious D. These artists are not even comparable to the classics of GH1.

Contention 2 -GH1 received more awards than GH3

GH1 received over 14 awards including "Best of 2005" IGN and "Game of the Year" Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences. GH3 received many reprimands. Wikipedia reads:

"Several reviews criticized the changes made to Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock compared to previous games in the Guitar Hero series. IGN's review of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions considered the game a "pretty safe effort" from Neversoft, doing little to change the game due to it being their first time working on the series. They also criticized the lack of customizable characters.[9] IGN's review of the Wii version described the game's presentation and art direction as feeling "forced", and, as a result, less visually appealing than previous installments.[74] GameDaily questioned the "white boy soundtrack" and would have liked to seen more tracks from legends like Jimi Hendrix and Prince in the mix."[75] GameSpy criticized some of the difficulty tweaks in the game. They stated that "Medium simply feels like Hard-minus-the-orange-button," and that the Star Power phrases were too long, comparing the overall game to a "trial by fire" in contrast to the previous games in the series.[17] They were also critical of the dongle approach used for the PlayStation 3 controllers, and failings in the online support for the PlayStation 3 version.[17] GameSpot criticized the game for its "heavy dose of in-game advertising."[5] GameSpy stated that the PlayStation 2 version received "the short end of the stick" because of a lack of online play.[76] Official Xbox Magazine also criticized the game for being "too competitive", a facet not readily found in the previous games.[72] The PC version has been criticized for its high system requirements, and for lag and slowdown problems even on high-end systems.[77]"

It is clear that GH 1 is a much more successful game.

Contention 3 -Without GH1, there would be no GH3.

With basic time line knowledge it is very clear that without a first addition to the series, it is impossible for there to ever be a 3rd addition. Any action my opponent takes to prove that GH3 is better than GH1 only helps negate the resolution because nothing he says matters unless he can prove that GH3 can exist in a world without GH1.

GH3 also has the Who, Cream, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Johnson, the Rolling Stones, and Metallica. And GH3 has Black Sabbath, as well.

P.S: Hendrix's first name is spelled "Jimi." Just sayin'.
