# ^^This to the extreme
I had "Frankenstein" on the C64 which had a 15 rating (because every now and then you allegedly saw a scary 8-bit drawing).

I couldnt get out the first room.

# did anyone have grand larceny on the c64?
I never managed to finish that, and lost the instructions so didn't know what the commands were. Typing in every verb you can think of eats up a lot of time.

I'd also like to point out to any of you that are confused- being able to play Guitar Hero does NOT mean you can play guitar. Please stop approaching me at my own gigs to smugly announce you can do Dragonforce on hard.

I'm a bassist, I can hardly bitch about lack of musical prowess....

# I know, I did consider putting 'Bass' instead of guitar....
My inner pedant though is quick to point out that a bass guitar is still technically a guitar...

Joe Satriani - technically astonishing, but his playing seems to lack feel or soul, if you know what I mean. I'd rather listen to Stevie Ray Vaughn or Buddy Guy, personally.

# I know EXACTLY what you mean.
technical ability amounts to shit all in my eyes - I went to see Paul Gilbert do a guitar workshop a couple of years ago and he's technically amazing, but there's a bit of soul there too which was good. Nice guy too.

there's a name I haven't heard for a bit! Did he demonstrate the electric drill thing he used to do with Billy Sheehan in Mr Big?

Lacking either technical ability or soul, I'm reduced to playing 3-chord punk where my woeful ineptitude is masked by distortion, volume and anger...

'cos when you play it on easy they miss out notes and penalise you when you play them.
