Music can define emotions in games and can be almost more important than graphics. It’s what gets your heart racing, your hands sweating, or your heart strings humming. Whether it’s license music or original music, it can wholly characterize a game. There have been many known famous songs from video games that millions of people can identify. This year we take a look at games that had heart wrenching and blood pounding soundtracks or licensed tracks.
BioShock has some of the best game music this year thanks to the early 1900’s vibe and just the unique tone that it gives off. From the Songbird melody to the opening cut scene, Infinite gives off this haunting melody that just sticks to you. Old American Revolution tones blended in with fantastical melodies is just something else.
