"Video game composers have it rough. Not only do they attempt to create memorable, game-defining tunes that refuse to leave our heads, they also have to make sure that those songs still hold up after they're repeated over and over. And to top it all off, they do so without the benefit of widespread recognition; it's unlikely any game musician will ever have the household name power of someone like John Williams or Hans Zimmer. But when these dedicated men and women succeed, their creations permeate the fabric of popular culture so completely that the entire entertainment industry takes notice."
