What do guitar players think about video games like "Guitar Hero" and "Rock Band"?


I recently read an article on Prince. He refuses to put his music in these games. Here's exactly what he said to Tavis Smiley: "I ain't mad at them. I hear it made, like, USD 2 billion and they came to us and offered us a very small portion of that." "I just think it's more important that kids learn how to actually play the guitar." So, are these games just harmless recreation? Or do these games "dumb down" the art form?
