Gunslinger Doc Holliday dies, the X-ray is discovered by accident, John F. Kennedy is elected president, the Florida recount begins, and the "Guitar Hero" craze is born, all on this day.
2005: The original "Guitar Hero" game is released in North America. One of the most influential video games of the 2000s, the game would spawn five direct sequels as well as three band-specific versions and three expansion games, not to mention spawning the "DJ Hero" games and inspiring the "Rock Band" series of music video games. The series has sold more than 25 million units worldwide, earning $2 billion.
