Submission + - Zen and the Art of Guitar Hero

An anonymous reader writes: Julian Murdoch over at GamersWithJobs.com has what can only be described as a piece of liturgy, proclaiming a gospel experience at his local Best Buy as he watches someone beat "Through the Fire and the Flames" on Expert in Guitar Hero 3. Maybe video games are a religious experience, and us old farts just don't get it.

"At 6 minutes in, a small crowd has formed, perhaps 15 of us. His sravaka — his disciples — look nervously at us, absorbing the distractions, protecting him a bubble of calm. There is complete silence. Even my son is staring slackjawed, like he does in church during communion, not understanding the content of the ritual but understanding the tone and sacredness of the space."
