Sound of Play: 17

Post by JaySevenZero »


Welcome to our podcast all about our favourite videogame music – Sound of Play.

For many of us, it’s hard to think of almost any videogame without our minds conjuring up the music that accompanied it. Over the decades they’ve evolved from simplistic monaural beeps and bloops to full orchestral scores recorded in 7.1 surround, but from their earliest days right up to today, soundtracks have played an integral part of our memories of the games we played, and the times in our lives when we were playing them. What we aim to bring you with Sound of Play is a diverse sample of our favourites pieces from the many air-punching, spine-tingling, tear-jerking and grin-inducing videogame soundtracks we’ve heard over the years.

This show’s presenters were: Leon Cox, Joshua Garrity and Karl Moon.

Community contributors were: Retothumbs, Papapishu and Poperamone.

Track 1: Primal Eyes by Yoko Shimomura – Parasite Eve, 1998

Ah Parasite Eve, best Christmas game ever! (for the same reasons Die Hard is a Christmas movie...)
