Guitar Hero

I had lost interest in computer games for a while and was only paying limited attention to them. Sure, I played Civilization IV or SimCity 4 to kill time every few months, but I was not really excited by them. However, two days ago I bought an awesome game called Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock for the Mac. The package included a plastic guitar to control the game.

It is essentially match colours to music game, but it really at times feels like you are playing music. And the songs are these legendary rock songs (incl some newer songs like Ruby by Kaiser Chiefs, Knights of Cydonia by Muse). If this is where the gaming is going these days (I still have not bought the incredible Wii with its motion sensor tech), I like it and am prepared to spend a lot of time playing games again.
