What are productive ways to use the "Rock Band" video game as part of a vocal training regimen?

Are there any bad habits/practices that singing along with this type of game tends to promote?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I believe that this is different from this similar question in that the answer, will (hopefully) focus on how to make the best use of these games. – Dave Mar 5 '13 at 16:45

I'm not sure how far a vocal game will get you, at least the ones that exist now. The main problem is they cannot give you feedback beyond pitch (and maybe rhythm). So any errors or deficiencies in technique may never get corrected.

That said, if you have a basic understanding of technique already, then games could be a fun way to practice.

You'll have to have a basic understanding of vocal technique in order to have any chance of improvement as they do not provide any advice and vocal coaching. I would recommand personnaly to take lessons or online lessons. Self-teaching yourself singing could get you real bad habits which could impact your progress dramaticaly.
