Staff Musings: Hey publishers, offer your soundtracks digitally

"(Editor’s note: In lieu of this week’s Liner Notes, Patrick brings you an opinion piece regarding the sale of digital game soundtracks.)

If you ask me, one of the most important aspects of a game (aside from being fun and playable) is whether or not it has good music.

A game’s soundtrack can make or break a game. Without a good soundtrack that instills some sort of joyful, thrilling or even fearful emotion in me I can’t have fond memories of that experience.

Some of us don’t think it’s enough to just hear a great tune while we’re busy blasting through a random encounter, stomping on a Goomba or tossing sonic booms. Damn it, some of us like to walk or drive down the road to the hair-raising ’80s rock euphoria that is the Grandia II battle theme, or the infectiously catchy melodies of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. That’s why we like to purchase videogame soundtracks."

I think this would be great. It also would bring in more money for the publishers too. I would love to download some of the songs from Rare. So I hope in the future developers will give their songs away for people to buy.
