That ride into Mexico in Red Dead has to be one of my all-time favourite moments in gaming. Rockstar created a beautiful open world - and that sequence showed it off at its most mesmerizing.

* Music is the most underrated part of the game.

Those sounds help lock the memory in place and time, and helps us to recall the feeling it gave us when we witnessed something.

* I LOVE Video game music, it's so diverse in terms of genres but it's always disguised to fit it's game genre.

My list would be in the Thousands though.

There are 200-300 NES songs alone that are "special" to me, as well as thousands from SNES/Sega/N64 and so on...

* with Ocarina of time, the music helped make those moments special to us. It's part of the reason most are so fond of the game.

Music builds atmosphere and emotion.
