Guitar Hero 2 (for PS2)

Probably the greatest novelty-controller-based video game of all time, Guitar Hero 2 will make you feel like you're a rock star. You are not. You're just pressing buttons on the neck of a little plastic guitar as color-coded notes stream by onscreen, but wow, it feels so good! There's also some co-op action, where one player handles lead, the other the rhythm or bass tracks. Guitar Hero 2 comes with 64 songs, including some legitimately eternal anthems like Guns'n'Roses "Sweet Child o' Mine" and The Police's "Message in a Bottle." They're covers, but come on — use your illusion, people.
