After a five-year break, gamers will once again have a choice in music video games this fall.
Although it’s been five years since gamers had either a new Guitar Hero or Rock Band game, Daniel Sussman, project director at Harmonix Music Systems, says the video game music never died. Harmonix has watched as hundreds of thousands of gamers continue to download new songs and play Rock Band games online. And on Oct. 6, Harmonix and co-publisher Mad Catz Interactive will unleash Rock Band 4 for Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One. The game will be backwards-compatible with previous plastic instruments like the drum kit, guitars, and microphone, but players can purchase brand new instruments that have been upgraded with new gameplay options.

411 Games Top 5: Top 5 Rhythm Games 5. Love Live! School Idol Festival (iOS/Android): In honor of Rock Band 4 coming out, here’s a list of non-guitar rhythm games (because everyone and their mom has played a guitar game.) This one is a bit niche, but if you enjoy rhythm games prepare for a blackhole of despair and triumph. A touch screen based game based on the popular idol anime Love Live!, the difficulty is just high enough to get you frustrated but most importantly never too hard to make you want to throw your phone across the room. If you watch video of it and think to yourself, “I can’t understand any of the lyrics how can I enjoy this?,” don’t worry, you’re not missing anything, and 10 hours in you will be singing along anyway (especially Snow Halation.)
