 Post subject: Musical Games
PostPosted: Tue Nov 20, '07, 1:36 am 
Have you ever played any video games that incorporated music as a major part of the game? If so, which ones and what did you think of them?

For this I'm thinking of any game where music or something related to it is a major mechanic. Anything from Dance Dance Revolution to Guitar Hero and everything inbetween.

Personally, the only one I've played is the PlayStation 2 RPG Ephemeral Fantasia, which has portions where the player has to play a guitar via the main character. Supposedly it works with one of the old guitar controllers, but I used a normal PS2 controller. It was pretty good, but I thought the guitar parts were rather difficult for me.

Lol, Karoke? Revolution was the only music based game that we ever got. It wasn't that bad either, we'd get the whole family nearing this time of year and sing as many songs as we could the best way possible. I had the highest score on Celebration, my aunt on Red Red Wine, my mom on Wind beneath my wings, and my little brother on Its the End of the World As we know it. XDDD

I played Parappa the Rappa way back in the day. It was pretty stupid, but had some catchy music. Parappa has been re-packaged, given a guitar controller, and is now called Guitar Hero. They are the same thing. I'll never unerstand how this junk became so popular.

Ah, Parappa... I haven't heard of that in years. I guess the presentation of the game has a big affect on the size of the audience it receives. Parappa was "kiddy" with cartoonish graphics, but I suppose Guitar Hero passes itself off as more "edgy."

Music games just aren't my thing. I have no musical talent, so I don't even try those. :lol:

The irony of music games is that you don't need any musical talent to play them. It's just button presses.

Ths only music game that comes to mind for me is Parappa the Rapper. It's kind of funny how certain parts were easier while others were harder (like the slow frog and chicken were easy for me). I think my favorite was the frog at the flea market since it was so silly! :p

Yes, that was the one! I always liked playing through it. :) However, the person playing it isn't doing too good in that video.

"The skunk over here will bring you luck~!" - Love that line.

I don't think I have ever played any musical games, but I do think I might like them. :note:
