I have just played what is most probably my last game of Guitar Hero 3. Certainly on Career Mode that is. Because I have come to one major realisation, and it has been brewing in my mind for several years now.
I cannot play video games.
I try and try and try to play these things, and the same thing always happens. Every single time. I get to a point, then I can't get any further and I end up feeling frustrated with the whole thing.
So today I am bringing an end to it. I am flat out refusing and boycotting games like these. Game with a very specific way of playing. Games where you either win or lose, and there is no other outcome. Why? Because they're not made for people like me. I simply cannot do it. I lack the hand eye co-ordination to jump through these hoops. And why should I PAY to be made to feel that I am not as good as someone else who has posted their video of them acing it in one go on YouTube?
I had to have a "Guitar Battle" against Slash. And I couldn't do it. I tried really hard, but I just couldn't do it. And to rub salt into the wound, I get booed for not being able to do it. And after being booed 5 times in a row, I felt just about ready to cry. So thank you publishers of Guitar Hero 3. Thank you for making me feel as low as the bullies did at school.
I was going to ask for Excite Truck and a Steering Wheel for my birthday...I don't think I will bother now.
