You can hardly call them shovelware. I agree that they are not classics, but you can expect a 7/10 for the first 2 titles, and maybe an 8/10 for the third title.
So it's not shovelware, not at all.

2. Meh, stupid because of all the needed peripherals
3. Also awesome. Want this the most

I meant shovelware in that sense that the games will not contain a single drop of originality or innovation. The entire inspiration behind them is "People buy them so let's make more of the same".

And the C.O.P thing? People are expecting nothing less than GTA4 on the DS. It may turn out to be not a bad game but it will fall way short of the ludicrous expectations.

I'm not interested in any of those games... And they shouldn't be worth so much money.

It's a friggin music game of a series. WTH do you expect. Besides that, you forgot the quality and usefulness aspect in order to determine if it's shovelware.

If we go around your logic we could name most 80%+ games shovelware

It's all a matter of perspective. Many six year old girls would swear the imagine series is the very acme of high quality. GH/RB is shovelware aimed at a different demographic. A game doesn't cease to be shovelware just because you want to play it.

And take a look back, I didn't say they would be bad games, only that they were shovelware by definition. I'll probably give the Lego one a go myself.

Uhmmm, first you say it's a matter of perspective, then you say somehting doesn't cease to be shoelware though it's liked and then you state they were by definition een though shoelware is defined by lower quality and not necessarly by innovation.

Contradiction!

Objection!!!!!

I'll play C.O.P...I'm not that interested in the music games. If you want to play music buy an instument, then you can play whatever song you like in whatever style...instead of simply clicking when you're told to.

What's faster? Playing Guitar Hero straight away or learning a guitar for months.

Thats another list that I think I can look forward to,the 10th. That is if the dates don't change. The only game in there I dont like (But I thought of others) is the Harvest Moon.
