A good satire is funny while making serious points. This Guitar Hero: The Beatles trailer really hits home on a lot of the complaints that some of us have about the Guitar Hero series, although I would say that it doesn’t make enough of the Guitar Hero series’ tendency to have terribly overdone charts that feel like playing a game, not playing a song. You can bet that Activision was going after the Beatles just as hard as Harmonix, so how glad are we that it played out the way it did and that Rock Band: The Beatles hits stores this week?

Thanks to Egg for bringing this to my attention.
