i think guitar hero is better because they have cool attacks such as amp oveload or whammy those are cool and guitar hero has 5 games. guitar hero is for the 360, ps2, ps3 and thats it. also you can play online with other people and also co-op mode and really nice songs please vote for guitar hero!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First of all, I see this is you're first debate on debate.org, so I'll be the first to say welcome! Haha

Ok, now to the debate!

Guitar Hero is a great game. However, I don't think how fun it is compares to Rock Band.

Guitar Hero can do whammys, online play, and co-op, but Rock Band can do it too. Rock Band can use guitar hero guitars, so anything that a guitar hero guitar can do, Rock Band can. Its awesome, but rock band can do it too

What guitar hero DOESN't have is the multiplayer experience. Rock Band has guitar, bass, drums, and vocals, while Guitar hero only has guitar and bass. This means that co-op mode on Rock Band is WAY more fun.

Also, Rock Band has a great song list, that anyone can like, because there is variety.

Ok, so I'll just go in the order my opponent stated things.

First of all, I do know something about both games. I have Guitar Hero 2 and 3, AND Rock Band.

ok.

1. Yes, there are two sets of buttons, but they do basically the same thing. Are they in the same order? Yes. Are they anything THAT different? No.

2. I never said anything about difficulty, and difficulty doesn't always make a game better. But if we're talking about difficulty, the drums are definitely in question. The drums are DEFINITELY a source of difficulty in the game. Also Harmonix did that ON PURPOSE, so the game is more accessible to people on their first time playing. Because of this, more people can play, which links to my argument of MULTIPLAYER experience. More people play=fun to harmonix standards.

3. This argument of videos makes little sense. You argue that guitar hero has more videos than rock band on youtube, but how does that make guitar hero any BETTER? Just because something has more videos, is it better? No. This means nothing with your resolution.

Well, since my opponent never posted a response:

Vote Con because:

Rock band is guitar hero times 4

it does everything guitar hero does

fame means nothing.

Thank you, and please, don't vote on you're game, read our arguments!

critterrice, it's simple. Guitar Hero is easier to pick up and play, and cheaper than guitars. Its not ment to be a profession or anythin, its ment to be fun.

And sometimes, the fingerings are pretty accurate. Also, in ROCK BAND's case, the drumming on there is actually helping me drum in real life!

s0m31john, their puttin out songs like every 2 weeks, AND their makin sequals this year, what do you want?

I still don't understand why people don't just play a guitar if they want to play a guitar. Those guitar controllers don't even have the right fingering. They would probably ruin you for playing real guitar.

I don't like either, and won't until they start putting out a lot more songs, more often.

Con won the debate though.
