Clone Hero: A Story About Plastic Guitars

In the midst of the 00’s, the gaming world gained one of the most popular, iconic rhythm games of all time. Of course, I’m on about Guitar Hero, a title which is synonymous with clunky plastic guitars. The games were fast paced, sometimes overly difficult on some songs; I’m looking at you, Through The Fire And The Flames. But even though the franchise as more or less fizzled out, with the last instalment deviating completely from the norm, some people wanted to see the once mega-star of rythm games rise from the grave. So along came Frets on Fire! But since then we’ve had more and more titles to help people repurpose those plastic guitars once more. Today, I’d like to take a moment to talk about how much I’ve enjoyed Clone Hero.
