Guitar Hero and Rock Band DLC Still Bring Joy to Players
After spending countless hours playing Guitar Hero and Rock Band DLC in my youth, I still find myself enjoying the occasional song pack for both series. While some users mention using Clone Hero on PC to access all Guitar Hero songs, others express a desire for new games and hardware in the genre.
While we've featured some stories of DLC misery in the past, there's no denying that plenty of users still enjoy Rock Band, with some even owning over 3000 songs. The increasing prices of Guitar Hero controllers are also a frustration for some, with the Metallica pack causing particular upset due to licensing issues.
"I still enjoy playing Rock Band," one user writes. "I've been playing since the first game and I'm sitting at over 3000 songs, with a lot of them coming from custom songs." Another replies, "3000 songs... I wish I had those kind of hours in any of the newer games."
"The price of controllers is insane," another user writes. "I'd love to get back into it, but I'll have to shell out hundreds for a new guitar and drums." "You can get used ones for cheap," one replies, "but be prepared to deal with the fact that they're heavy as fuck."
"I've spent more than a thousand dollars on Rock Band DLC over the years and don't regret any of it," another writes. "I've bought maybe a handful of DLC over the years and don't regret any of it either," another replies.
"I remember the days when Rock Band DLC was the shiniest new thing," another writes. "Now it's like a big bag of pogs from the 90s." "I spent 200+ on Rock Band 2 and nothing else," another replies. "I don't regret it, it was a lot of fun."
"I'm just happy that I can play all of my DLC on Rock Band 4," another user writes. "I wish there were more games and more controllers in the genre," another replies. "I play a lot of Clone Hero and use a Guitar Hero 2 controller," another writes. "I use the PS2-to-USB adapter and it works perfectly."
"I don't even own a console anymore and I still own over 300 DLC songs," another writes. "Don't get me wrong, I love the songs. I just don't play the game anymore." "If I had to choose between the songs and the controllers, I'd choose the songs every time," another replies.
"I spent about $500 on Rock Band DLC and $100 on a used guitar," another writes. "My Rock Band 2 still works perfectly and I have everything I need to play all my songs." "I'm glad I saved the money," another replies. "I've been playing Rock Band since the first game and I'm sitting at over 3000 songs, with a lot of them coming from custom songs."
"$200+ for DLC," another writes. "Forget it." "It's not worth it," another replies. "What we're talking about is the memory of playing the game and the fun it provided," another writes.
