Guitar Hero II

I had heard about this game for a while now. It being labeled a "rhythm" game kind of turned me off. But last night after the Super Bowl (which, along with the weather, we shall not discuss, ever) we played it and it was really fun. I can see the difficulty levels slowly building up and taking you to a crazy level of "guitar" playing, which is one of the really positive aspects of video games (that slow, steady, frustrating progression of overcoming something that, at first glance, seems impossible).

In case you're not familiar, you hold a guitar in your hand and you have to strum certain chords in step with what's happening on screen, as the music plays depending on the right notes being strummed. Click here for more info.

In all, it's a really fun game great for large groups of drunk people.
