Guitar hero needs some kind of subscription service and a solid platform before it completely jumps the shark in my opinion, putting out four full price games a year when most of the content could be put out as DLC is exactly the kind of money grabbing tactic that'll lead to the franchises early demise.
and they need to release a version on the PC that doesn't lag like a female dog :|

I totally agree and this is why I like rock band as they have a good DLC content which is updated most the time on a weekly basis.
GH has one huge issue. The game mechanics are slightly different on differing platforms.

I play GHWT on my PS2, but when I play the same game on the PS3, all my timings are out. Even on songs I know.

This needs sorting.
