"Accordion Hero" Not The Hit Activision Hoped For

After the success of the Guitar Hero franchise of rhythm games, Activision took a hit recently with their much anticipated Accordion Hero.

Herb Yankovic, creator of the game, expressed his dismay.  "Kids these days, give 'em a fake guitar and they're happy.  But give 'em an accordion, something you can really get down with, and they aren't interested."

Some critics argue that the selection of music is probably what did the game in.  Music selections included the "Woodpecker Polka" and the "Beer & Pretzels Polka".

But the real dispute stemmed from the controversial "Blue Skirt Waltz Remix".  "You don't mess with the classics," one critic argued.
