Just how powerful can music be to a game? We say, extremely. In our opinion it completes the experience; it can set the tone and overarching mood for the entire game, and often impresses upon us the way we should feel about a given character or world.
We took a hard look at the games released this year and chose the music from those that left the most indelible impression. Not only could we not imagine this games without music, we couldn't imagine it without the specific tracks that complete each experience.
