GodisaGeek: "Music in videogames has come on leaps and bounds over the past few decades. We’ve gone from short, repeated chiptunes; to the lavish, fully-orchestrated, cinematic soundtracks we enjoy today. It is now easier than ever to buy gaming soundtracks, and it’s now even possible to see our favourite gaming themes played live. A group of dedicated game music fans are even trying to get the genre recognised in Classic FM’s Hall of Fame.
Is there any better time to look at some of the most iconic themes heard in videogames? Note that I’m using the word “iconic”, this isn’t a list of the “best” tracks out there. These are the tracks that define gaming music, the tracks that people make ringtones out of, that bands cover and the ones that even non-gamers know."
