I am a self admitted Guitar Hero addict. Probably the coolest thing I tried at E3 was GH2. Now was it really that good? Or am I just plain hooked? I dunno. I did find out however that there is a totally free PC based rythm based game prject in the works. The website has a cool demo video and say coming soon. I can't wait.
The appeal of Freetar is that you can author a set using any music you like... I like the beatmania/ddr clones for the same reason, since much of the music in the commercial games I can't get into.
Any photos of video of you and Brian playing GH2? :-)
Guitar Hero is extremely addictive, but I only like to play about 15% of all songs. They used lots of those noisy nineties classical (glamour) hard rock songs, which are extremely boring, I can barely stand listening to them. They initially promised to released different sequels based on genres. Let's hope they stick to it and release Indie and Post-rock versions soon.
