When I play Rock Band, the world around me fades out as soon as the venue lights up on my TV. I am whisked away from my everyday concerns and for a few precious songs I imagine being inside my favorite movie, Purple Rain, to perform at First Avenue and see the audience go wild.

At that point I totally fail out of the game and get booed by the audience.
