Doesn't anyone here find it just a LITTLE strange that off to the left of this forum under the "Inspiration" list of GT, they have a Video Games Category?

That's more of a novelty category than an actual inspiration. If you are seriously inspired by video games, i can only imagine what your conversations sound like...."Dude! This new Vai album RULZ!! OMG!!!!". "NAAW DUDE! HAVEN'T YOU HEARD MARIO and LUIGI's NEW GAME?!!!! The guitar playin is WAAaY BEtteR! They OWN Vai!! OmG!!!............................ :D

hahaha

In all fairness though...Steve vai's playing on the halo 2 soundtrack was pretty awesome........ :D
I am Comfortably Numb... :D

Oh yeah...STICK IT TO THE MAN!

Sounds like certain other guitar forums I could mention, only your spelling is actually better.

Keep in mind that the "By Inspiration" thing is basically just a quick way of putting those words into the search engine automatically for you.
If you click on "Video Games", it's the same thing as using the Search feature to look for "Video Games"
Then it does a search of all the lessons on the site that either have the words 'video games' in them, or where the teacher has added them into the keywords for that page.
You could probably get some interesting results by using weird words in the main page search engine too. If the other instructors are anything like me, they'll throw in random keywords sometimes, just in case somebody searches for something weird like 'Fish Food' or whatever.

Firstly...

Heheheh...too true, too true...

Secondly, I see your point...but I have to put my hand up and say I actually thought it was a nice, quirky option. I've got to be honest and say I do have a tendency to learn "trival" guitar licks (Tetris, Final Fantasy, Popeye The Sailor Man, Popcorn), but more as a bit of a laugh for party pieces than a serious inspiration....

I realise it's in alphabetical order, but what I find amusing is the fact Video Games is above Malmsteen...
Don't worry too much about me, ignore me long enough and I'll go away.
