I’ve been thinking on music in games lately. Perhaps it’s because I’ve finally copied a ton of collectible soundtrack CD’s to my iPod. Or maybe it’s because I like music. A lot.
Growing up, one of my favorite manuals ever was for Homeworld. 100+ pages long, it covered the lore of the Homeworld universe with a tiny section devoted to controls. It was impressive, to say the least, and I was happy with nostalgia when my collector’s edition came with a reprint of that book. »
I’m all for cold openings and smash cuts in games. Frankly, I don’t think we have enough creative title screens these days. »
Solid list! I'd pick obvious choices like Stairway, of course. The symphonic metal nerd in me would like to see more Nightwish and Sonata Arctica. As far as classic stuff...I'd like to see Deep Purple stuff that isn't Highway Star or Smoke on the Water. »
Thanks for the excellent read. I also immersed myself in anime and games to cope with bullying and severe depression. Mine were Gundam, DBZ, Cowboy Bebop, Outlaw Star...essentially the Cartoon Network Toonami lineup, lol. »
