First off, I have never been a fan of either of the aforementioned games, not because I thought they were bad games or anything, but basically because I knew I wasn't coordinated enough to play them.
couple days ago I was over my cousin's house and he was playing the Beatles:
Rock Band and truthfully it looked like a lot of fun and maybe something I
could actually pull off.
Most likely I'm not going to run out and
purchase either game as of right now, but if they came out with a game based
around one of my favorite bands I just may.
Growing up in the 80's and also being from
New Jersey it goes without saying that I was a huge fan
of Bon Jovi, then and
honestly still am. I know Bon Jovi isn't for everyone but I do believe if they
came out with a Guitar Hero/Rock Bank dedicated to them it would sell…I know I
would buy it…even if I had to get a second job with Tommy on the docks.
Now I know there is DLC for Bon Jovi of these
games…but that’s not good enough for me…I want to see them on the cover rocking
out in all their glory and giving love a bad name… I mean if they can give
Green Day (of all bands) their own game…so why not Bon Jovi…why is Bon Jovi
playing second fiddle (or in this case electric guitar) to Green Day…that makes
as much sense as Beyonce singing backup for Courtney Love.
Bon Jovi also doesn’t deserve some crappy
thrown together shovelware game either…where the band members look like some 8-bit
rejects who move like they are doing the robot. They deserve the best…the royal
treatment…their game should look like no other…like as if you are actually
there watching them live…and play where as you really feel like you’re jamming
out with the band itself.
Bon Jovi is
one of the greatest bands ever...they survived the 80's glam...the 90's
grunge...and still going strong. It is a real shame that they don't have their
own Rock Band/Guitar Hero game...I mean what is this world coming to. We have
video games based on all kind of crappy things…so why something as awesome as
Bon Jovi is being overlooked…is beyond me.
don’t know maybe Bon Jovi was offered a game but declined, I didn't really
think there were any bands that had issues with these games but I guess it's
kind of like the whole Napster thing to a certain point, bands vs. technology.
of the new generation of female tech savvy groupies that will be playing this
game...it will be like the 80's all over again.
