and yes i would like them to take more risks on their albums and get away from the playing nothing but fast cords and solo stuff. yes, a lot of their material sounds alike, but then again, i find many others to be the same way
You are the only reasonable Dragonforce fan on the planet.

I hope you do know that it was not their intent to have any of their songs in video games. i hope you know that their intents haven't changed. Maybe they're labeled with shitty hyperspeed video game music, but I'm sure they do not take kindly to the generalization.

I hope you do know that in order for the song to be in the game, the makers HAD to ask the band, so you can't argue that they had nothing to do with its inclusion.
I hope you realize that by "video game" music, I don't mean that it was IN a video game, I mean that their music SOUNDS like old nintendo game music, played absurdly fast and ridiculously. If I meant that it was IN a game, by that logic about a dozen bands I actually like would also be shitty video game music, which the are not. Dragonforce is "shitty video game music" because their music sounds like, as I said, the soundtrack to a really ridiculous old school video game, not aided by their complete wankery and guitar noises, and the fact that their music sounds like it was made by cheese-tastic robot machines that have come fuck music in the ass.

The main reason I can no longer stomach Dragonforce is their fans and the mainstream reaction to them, ie. thinking Li is the fastest guitarist alive.
he's not!?

You're right, in a sense. Yes, they HAD to ask the band. But if the band disapproved, then the makers of Guitar Hero would make their own version of TTFAF and other songs, making Dragonforce look bad. They do the same with all Black Sabbath songs, ever notice that? I'd rather have my original song available for others to play on a video game instead of a terrible remake.

Well they certainly seem to have loved everything that GH has brought them, infact I think one of them even plays a guitar with a GH sticker on it. From what I heard of the new album its exactly what the guitar hero obsessed crowd wanted. They may not have been trying to "sell out" at first, but they have certainly jumped into it. They aren't completely free of blame for they fanbase.
