How many of us have channeled our inner rock demon as James Hetfield or the guitar slashing Kirk Hammet on the vicarious music video game Guitar Hero? Enough apparently to get the metal gods a nod for the Music Video Game of the Year at the Golden Joystick Awards. But they aren’t the only rock legends up for a nom, who are they going head to head for the coveted “Golden Joystick”?
Three huge music icons are fighting for the title of the Music Video Game of the Year award at the world’s biggest video game awards event, The Golden Joystick Awards. [lastfm]Metallica[/lastfm], [lastfm]Van Halen[/lastfm] and [lastfm]The Beatles [/lastfm] are all up for their special edition music video games released this year.
