Guitar Hero for Valentines Day!

Not even thinking I went out to eat and shopping for Valentines Day with a friend of mine last night, mind you last night was a very unusual one for Alabama.. we had quite a bit of snow and though the roads were clear when I left home around seven when I started home after shopping around ten every bypass on the way home was frozen solid. Which wouldn't have been a super huge deal but southern drivers are not at all used to ice and it seems that everyone the moment they felt their tires slip a little decided that hitting the breaks is the best policy. To make a long story short I drove the entire way home going about 40 down the enterstate praying that no one would hit me. Why am I telling you this story? Well before I left our little shopping trip my friend had asked me what I thought she should buy for her hubbie for Valentines Day and at the time I really didn't have an answer for her. Though on the way home it was the one thing I thought about to help calm my nerves as I watched everyone swirve around me.

If your looking for a great last minute Valentines Day gift for your other half or even a teenager in your life, I really swear by the Guitar Hero series of games. When the series first came out I really thought the Guitar Hero fad would be limited to teenagers and younger kids who were still in that whole "I wish I was a rockstar, mindset" but honestly after staying up late nights and playing Guitar Hero with some of my friends I've realized it's really a great game to play as a group or even as a family. One of my good friends plays it reguarlly with her kids including her three year old who I guess is fairly good at the drums!

The most recent addition to the Guitar Hero family is by far one of my favorite choice for the dads I know as the song selection is one of my favorites. Guitar Hero Van Halen has an awfully rocking soundtrack most of which are Van Halen based though the "extra" songs are really the ones that get me giddy. Including 25 Van Halen songs including some that have some really awesome guitar solos for those of you that really love the guitar controller best. The extra songs are really my favorite though including Billy Idol's White Wedding, The Offspring Pretty Fly for a White Guy, Weezer Dope Nose and so many awesome others. Though I think this title may be a little light in songs compared to some.. the ones you get are really great possibly some of the best overall songs I've seen thus far. Guitar Hero Van Halen is available right now on Amazon!

If your looking for a bit bulkier title Guitar Hero 5 includes a massive 85 songs with something from almost every genre. This title will keep you busy for hours as it really does seem like the song selection is almost unending. As well you can play it on party mode which allows you to switch players during songs to make it a real challenge if you have a big group. Guitar Hero 5 is also compatible with Guitar Hero World Tour and you can download the songs from World Tour into Guitar Hero 5 to give yourself an even larger song base. Some of my favorite songs included are Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit (always a fun one to attempt to get your buddy to sing while they are a little intoxicated or even some unsuspecting parent.. heh) as well as Bon Jovi You Give Love a Bad Name. Guitar Hero 5 is available right now on Amazon as well!

I can't get this to you by Valentines Day obviously.. but I have a copy of Guitar Hero Van Halen for PS3 to give away to one lucky reader!
