That is honestly a tough one for sure. It is a rhythm game for one, so guitar hero isn't a bad comparison, but I've had a friend literally argue with me that it's not a rhythm game but a circle clicking game before. Some people in the community even meme that osu! isn't really a rhythm game with some of them being serious (there is something to that argument because osu! being restricted to one circle at a time inherently means it's less rhythmically complex).

I think a guitar hero comparison is the way to go sadly. The average person will not know what you're talking about otherwise.

It's click the circle game with other mode when you're bad at clicking the circle.

it's the game that the obnoxious people reference on songs that were mapped in the game

Notes go from top and you have to hit them when they are on the bottom. It's like DDR.
