The Benefits Of A Great Soundtrack

Game Podunk blogger, Natetodamax writes, "In the past, great games have come out that immerse players in fantastic worlds without the help of a fitting soundtrack.

There's something to be said about games that can achieve this without a memorable soundtrack in question, no doubt.
