Where were you in November 2007? For many gamers (if not all), they started experiencing a game that would later become one of the best franchises ever put out by a gaming studio called Harmonix. On November 20th, 2007, a game called Rock Band came out, which expanded on the guitar game play from their previous work on Guitar Hero and combined additional elements, such as drums and vocals. In celebration of its fifth anniversary, I’m writing about my experiences playing a most beloved game series in the form of a two-part blog feature. Part I will start from the time when I first heard of the game and will cover from the beginning and all the way through my experiences with LEGO Rock Band and The Beatles: Rock Band.
