If there’s one thing that can be said about the video game industry, its that with each passing generation the experience is always bigger and better. With buzzwords like “graphical leap” being thrown around as the norm these days, its easy to see why a game’s audio, and most importantly music, plays second fiddle to visuals. And I get it, because every single day video game graphics are getting better and better. It’s only natural because as humans it’s all about visual stimulation; but believe it or not it’s actually the music and sounds you hear during the most memorable video game moments that will make you remember them even more."
