    Why? I cannot figure out why this game is so popular. I tried it a few times and got nothing out of it. Sure, I finished the songs, and even got halfway decent scores. But I had no desire to ever go back. I think the problem is that it's natural (fair or not) to compare it to Guitar Hero, and TT:R has no chance of competing with the physical, tactile feel of holding a "guitar" in your hands. Every second I was playing TT:R I wanted to be playing Guitar Hero instead, so I guess I had no chance of ever liking it. (And I'm not even a big Guitar Hero fan--I've only played it a dozen times. It's just that you know what's good and what isn't, and to me TT:R just isn't.)
