Guitar Hero is a music video game. It features a guitar-shaped peripheral as the primary controller to simulate the playing of an electric guitar. Rock Band 1 and 2 are the highest-rated music/rhythm games ever. Mass Effect falls within the space opera genre and explores themes such as space colonization, intolerance, vigilantism, and artificial intelligence. The story, with its man-vs.-machine elements, has drawn comparisons to both Fred Saberhagen's Berserker novels and Battlestar Galactica, as well as to Frederick Pohl's Gateway novels.
