Boegiboe and Jason introduced me to Rocksmith last night and I’m now doing mental calculus in my head about where we’d put the guitar and where we’d put the bass and whether we’d play the game half as much as we played the various Guitar Heroes/Rock Bands (if we did, you see, the investment would be worth it in a heartbeat).
One of the things we noted was that we are only now figuring out what video games can do… Rocksmith can teach you how to play a guitar. Typing of the Dead could teach you how to touch type. Golly, what will tomorrow’s video games leave us able to do?
Assuming, of course, they don’t just become some form of VR goggles with full bodysuit rumble technology. (At that point civilization will cease.)
So… what are you playing?
