As video games themselves evolve, so too has the soundtrack that accompanies them but they don't sound like they used to. Melody has left the video game song in favor of atmospheric music. Is this a welcome trend?

Nothing like the CD music of Mortal Kombat 3. The character selection screen, The Church, The Soul Chamber and Shao Khan's level "The Pit III" were awesome.

I think of it more as evolving. Take for instance Journey. The music almost drives the game and elevates it to something more than just your regular video game experience. Going back a few years...Shadow of the Colossus. Another game that's visually amazing coupled with an atmospheric, hauntingly beautiful soundtrack that transcends videogames into, dare I say

Is this a welcome trend? I'd like to think so.

Right...the evolution of the "mood music" or cinematic score-type music is fine as long as the melodic music of old doesn't fade into obscurity. It already is, and that is unfortunate.

Banjo-Kazooie. Nuff said.

But Fire Emblem Awakening had a great soundtrack as well...

I love gears, halo, bioshock and mass effect music.

Uncharted worlds-mass effect
Ghosts of reach-halo
Gears keep turning-gears of war
Song bird-bioshock
