Website: Scorehero

"Graciously documenting our future arthritis"

ScoreHero is a fan-website for Guitar Hero as well as Rock Band and many other rhythm games. The site contains an unoffical leaderboard, site-wide leagues, as well as a forum and a coven of unofficial charts.

This website contains examples of:

  • Cosmetic Award: Winners of later leagues (season 13 onward) win a trophy over their username.
  • Crazy-Prepared: "Barfo" was very talented at getting exact scores (including many 133337 scores).
  • Do Well, but Not Perfect: In the early Guitar Hero games, you couldn't tell what your star rank would be until the end of the song. The site compiled a list of cutoffs for the different grades by repeatedly playing through and recording what scores earned how many stars. This got rather difficult when suddenly single-point precision is required.
  • Game Mod: The custom songs.
  • Resident Freak: Quite a few, most notably "toymachine", who is freaky but sane. He also happens to sport the highest post count on the site.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The spacing/capitalization can vary between "Scorehero", "Score Hero", and "ScoreHero". It's officially "ScoreHero". Our namespace listings have it as "Scorehero" due to a typo.
