Our son received Guitar Hero 3 from grandma for Christmas, and we’ve rocked out on it way more than he has (even beat Satan handily in the guitar battle, bitches). So we weren’t a bit surprised when we read this story about adult women addicted to the game, some playing so much they develop painful tendinitis. Speaking of which, hey Activision, would it kill you to come out with a full-size guitar for us Wii playing grownups?
Tami Amati admits that sometimes, after she drops her two boys off at school, she comes home and plays the video game “Guitar Hero” … for hours.

Fourth-grade teacher Anni Whitaker, 29, of Roselle, lined up at Best Buy at midnight on a school night to buy the new “Guitar Hero III” — for herself.
Whitaker, who is expecting a baby, recently had a pregnant friend over. They balanced the video game’s plastic guitars on their protruding bellies and jammed to the game’s ZZ Top and Guns ‘N Roses songs.
