When I was younger, my family used to watch old Disney Sing Along Songs VHS tapes. You know, the ones where they’d show clips from Disney shows/movies and you could “follow the bouncing ball” while singing. Sort of like Disney karaoke. Nobody in my house sang to the tapes, but we liked watching them anyway.
Well, I was shopping for videogames yesterday, and it turns out that Disney has TWO sing-along videogames. One has all the High School Musical songs, and another has sixteen Hannah Montana/Jonas Brothers/Camp Rock songs. The idea is just like the old sing-along-song tapes: they show footage of the movie with the song lyrics as subtitles, and you can sing along in the microphone.
I was sorely tempted to buy the High School Musical game, just so I could force Marianne to play and get some hilarious video footage.
So here’s my demand: The sing-along videogame is a good idea, but stopping at sixteen songs is bad. Only using songs made in this century is bad, too. I want to see a massive Disney sing-along game with pretty much all the Disney songs ever. It would be an awesome family game, and best of all, it wouldn’t be hard for Disney Interactive to make.
