Super Metroid's soundtrack proves the value of chiptunes

Bitmob - Beginning with the original NES title, the music in the Metroid series has been about more than just catchy compositions.

The first game's composer, Hip Tanaka, specifically wanted the sounds of Planet Zebes to evoke a sense of organic life, even (or especially) if that life was terrifying. You can hear his intentions in much of Metroid's ambient sound effects and melodies.

The story is too old to be commented.
