Default Re: Rockband - only more for reals.

I agree if your purpose is to learn to play the drums.

On the other hand, if you're just playing it for fun with friends with no desire to become a drummer, then it's just what it is - a diverting bit of entertainment.

My brother (for instance) used to be alarmingly good at Guitar Hero. Can he play the guitar? Hell no. Can I play the guitar? Yes, I can - but I'm useless at Guitar Hero. He has no desire to play the guitar but played the game for laughs.
