Lots of advancements and additions have been made to the various Guitar Hero games over the years, but Guitar Hero III was the the game that really put Guitar Hero on the map. The prior games were pretty neat, and when the 1st ever Guitar Hero game came out, people were excited about it and how cool it was to be able to play some of the songs they knew and loved. However, when Guitar Hero III came out, for it's time, it really broke the mold. After seeing how popular Guitar Hero was getting to become after II, more and more bands were jumping at the opportunity for their music to get out there and heard, and started offering up their actual songs to the Guitar Hero franchise. Many of the songs in the prior 2 games and even still in 3 were not the actual songs, but covered songs, but that all started to change after 3. With the addition of more of the real songs and a bigger variety of better songs, it certainly did more for the franchise. On top of that, also, was the improved upon game play and the addition of duels, in which at various point throughout the game, such as against Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine and Slash of Guns & Roses, and eventually Lou at the end of the game. This added elements and improved upon graphics really gave Guitar Hero a name and drew in an even bigger following, (this is about the point that I started to get into the games), and the rest is history. From then on, most of the following songs in following games began to feature the actual artist songs and people were very much into them. The following started to die down a little after Guitar Hero Metallic, but most of the games up until the final game, Warriors of Rock, were pretty awesome game. This and basically every following Guitar Hero game are in my collection still, for whenever I decide I want to sit down and thumb away at them. Will always very much enjoy Guitar Hero!
