I’ll freely admit that at first, when rhythm oriented video games such as Rock Band and Guitar Hero dropped, I was a openly skeptical. Over the past few years I’ve changed my tune and occasionally you’ll find me at a party rocking out the mic or drums on everything from Weezer to System of a Down (I won’t go so far as to actually own the games, but I also won’t sit disapprovingly on the sidelines).
Well the latest iteration of said rhythm games comes in the form of DJ Hero and yet again I find myself a bit of a skeptic. The game seems like a gimmick, the control scheme feels a bit elementary, and I’m not sure if it will catch on (note I’ve been wrong before). Of one thing, though, I am certain. Some of the tracks contained on this game are amazing. Simply amazing. Here’s my favorite.
It might not make you a DJ. You might not even enjoy playing the game. You will, however, enjoy the music.
