[154] .Analysts stated that such games must continue to innovate instead of just providing more songs in order to prevent "genre fatigue".[155] Jesse Divnich of Electronic Entertainment and Design Research commented that, much like Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero and other music games explosively grew initially due to significant new features from other games but have become stagnant due to focusing on content over features, and suggests that for the genre to continue to grow, they must look to incremental changes as done with the first-person shooter genre.^ Then they can become real Guitar Heroes, or at least more of a guitar hero than someone playing a game.

The series has also been criticized for its release model in contrast to the Rock Band series, causing some players to hold contempt towards Activision.[157][158] .Harmonix considers the Rock Band series as a "music platform", and have supported it with downloadable content and the ability to import songs from its games and expansions into most other games of the series.^ You may not copy, download, upload or in any other way reproduce Content, except for creating one copy solely for backup or archival purposes.

[160][161][162][163] .The recent release of Guitar Hero: Smash Hits, revamping older songs from the series to full four-instrument band support but otherwise adding no additional material, has been called "the definition of 'milking'" by reviewers, with no observable technical limitation as to why the songs could not be added as downloadable content.^ I love Guitar Hero, i can't wait for its release.

[170] Analysts believe that the market will evolve to support a smaller number of titles each year, averaging at a "healthy" value $500-600 million in revenues annually.[170]
.Activision Publishing chief executive Mike Griffith, in response to questions about Activision's approach to the Guitar Hero market, noted that Guitar Hero continues to outsell the Rock Band series in both number of sales and revenue, with consumers continuing to buy the separate games on the market, and considered the market acceptance of the multiple games as validation for their model.^ But anyways Guitar hero is an amazing game!!!

Easter Eggs

  • While waiting for a song to load, a loading screen is presented with an image of an amplifier. .The amp has three volume knobs, each of which turn to 11. This is a reference to the 1984 "rockumentary" This Is Spinal Tap, in which an amplifier is discussed for its apparent ability to go to 11 rather than simply 10. Furthermore, one of the random loading screens displays the reference 'Eleven IS louder than ten'. Subsequently, the song "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight" by Spinal Tap was featured in Guitar Hero II.
  • Though many of the loading screens give the player brief playing tips and hints, many of them are also jokes about rock'n'roll culture.^ I have played guitar hero.
