I dont really play video games that much since my brother always hogs the tv but the MLB and Mario games are pretty fun. I also liked playing rockband at the end of the year in music class however when i played it, it didnt even feel like playing a video game.

The infamous Guitar Hero/Rock Band. I'm surprised we didn't mention that before.

I believe we have...a couple of times, except none of them have inspired conversation.

Rock band is Amazing- I love drums, but I am pretty good at everything else too. Guitar hero also is really good. I just finished Through fire and flame for the first time today on medium therefore I am happy. :D

Thanks! Could you tell that to my mom? She doesn't believe it.

Wow gneissisnice, congrats. That song is difficult and expert is, well, expert. I can barely do hard- I can't seem to master moving my hand to the orange button. Sadly, that's my goal by the end of the summer because people here are tired of me beating them on medium :twisted:. The only thing I can really do expert on is drums, and occasionally singing-it depends on the song. Some of the harder songs I can't do either on expert and have to stick to hard for now- stupid, repetitive, triplet pattern with the bass pedal and buttons...

I'm horrible at the drums on rockband. I'm pretty good on guitar and singing though.

Haha i sorta cheated on the solo. I went to the high part of the guitar and used my right hand to do the solo from above, cause my fingers work better like that. But it was still really hard.
