I gotta be honest that Brandon is the most qualified to create content revolving around stuff like this, even if I do have the abilities to do this myself as well.

I'm reviving this thread just to show what I wrote out on a whim, progress will be very slow because I'm really busy with school this semester.

There's a lot of research I can do on my own, but every suggestion and feedback from you guys contribute a lot to this as well

My main concern right now is writing a proper script that's actually fun to listen to, and it'd be time-consuming because this is my first time making something like this.

I'm not thinking about the voice over yet, but I appreciate the thought tho.

you might want to change guitadora to guitarfreaks/drummania since gitadora as a name didn't come until 2013

Ah okay, thanks for the fix.

Aight, I'm down to see this happen. Keep us posted

My own personal answer is that it would have stayed mainstream had Konami been willing to deliver solid ports of the games and Activision not over saturated the Guitar Hero brand, playing into the cartoony Rock Star angle so much that people just felt they had to be growing out of it nly 2 years after the first release.

Cost of production and music rights becoming more expensive because of Rock Band's success probably didn't help.

[UmActually]
It's from 2001. I remember because I used the term to refer to the series and got corrected by Jonathon Matthews/Disco Man while driving on I-75 back in 2008

It specifically was used in the CS release of GF4th / DM3rd

That said, I agree the script should be changed as Storn suggest, lol.

My harshest critique I can have, is that I want to scream intense profanities at you for the formatting of the first page. Then I looked at the other pages, and it just got worse.

lmao it's fair criticism, but I was in a hurry and just wrote everything out on a whim and disregarding the formatting.

this is just a script that I'm gonna read off of, so you don't have to worry about seeing OCD-violating stuff like this again xd

dragonforce def became popular because of guitar hero

i remember being on the bus listening to dragonforce all the time because i knew of them from stepmania and enjoyed their music
tried to share it with some other metalhead friends and only one of them even remotely liked df

eventually guitar hero 3 comes out with through the fire and flames and then all of the sudden everyone and their mother knew dragonforce and liked (at least this one) their music

Yeah pretty much. I think I first heard then through Kevin_18 and it kind of had this like fantasy cringe aspect to it at the time for most people, then Guitar Hero made that shit look metal.

FWIW I can dig a CD or two of Dragon Force but they did get super overhyped for a while there.
