Kicking off 2022 in Games

Seriously, it's something this industry has no concept of and, really, puts gaming in an almost similar position (no pun intended) to the pron industry. Activision have just announced Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. Yep, you read right, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. We all love the franchise, and last year's GHIII proved Harmonix didn't need to exclusively be at the helm for it to work, but this is just taking it a little far. Due for release in June this year, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith will give players an opportunity to 'relive' the life of this aging band from their first gig to super-stardom. But honestly, who cares? The band do, that's for sure:
"Having a game built around Aerosmith has been a huge honour and really a great experience for us," says Joe Perry. "We've put a lot of ideas into the game so that fans can have fun interacting with our music, getting inside our body of work and learning about the band's history."

Steven Tyler says, "Any band that can go from 'Donít Want to Miss A Thing' (Aerosmith's #1 smash hit) to the ass-kicking 'Sweet Emotion' to the cheekiness of 'Love in an Elevator,' to the classic ballad 'Dream On' shows why Activision chose us to headline this game based on the diversity of the Aerosmith catalogue. Not only is songwriting a bitch, but then it goes and has puppies."

Perry adds, "On a larger scale, it's cool for us to be pioneers helping to rebuild the music industry through a format like video games. It's great for rock since the record companies are struggling to make sense of how things are changing. Fans want to get and experience music in new formats--and there are going to be some of them who will play the game, then pick up the guitar for real and start bands. It's what's happening now, and it's only going to build more momentum in the future. It's a massive change for the music business."
The real test will be the price-tag on this sucker and if you'll need to buy any extra peripherals to play it (if playing only Aerosmith songs is your idea of a great version of Guitar Hero anyway).

Why play platform games when you could build scaffolds for a living

I just don't know why you would choose Aerosmith. Pick a band that have actually done something for music - Black Sabbath, Led Zepp, Pink Floyd or Dire Straits would have been my picks
