Guitar Hero

Guitar Hero may be a classic, but it is for a reason! This is the perfect game to break out with a large group of friends. The gameplay of Guitar Hero is based around a rhythm mechanic. The player uses a guitar-shaped controller with five buttons to hit color-coded notes, and a "strum bar" to simulate the picking of strings in time with the music. A "Rock Meter" on the side of the screen indicates the crowd's satisfaction with the performance. Hitting notes raises the meter, missing notes lowers it.
