The Importance of a Video Game Soundtrack – Part 1 of an Analog Roundtable | Analog Addiction

Analog Addiction writes: "The topic of video game soundtracks is one that comes up every now and then, especially when conversing with other gamers. Some people will view the soundtracks as unimportant or less crucial than the gameplay or action, while others will say that the soundtrack can make or break a game. There are others still that will take the stance that soundtracks play an important part in the enjoyment of a game, but no more or less than that of the plot or gameplay. Given that there are about as many different philosophies surrounding video game soundtracks as there are gamers in the world, we thought we would get a big discussion going amongst some of the Analog Addiction staff and share the results with you. The entire discussion has been split into two parts due to how thorough the responses got, with the first half being included in this article and the second half coming a little later. Each editor also picked their favourite video game track so you’ll have some ear candy to complement the reading. Who knows, maybe you’ll find your personal favourite in here."
