For obvious reasons, this overlaps a bit with Day 4’s post. So to add on to that, I just have one additional song.
When it comes to that mysterious and painful thing known as nostalgia, there’s nothing quite as cruel as video games. Memories of days gone by where I spent hours upon hours having fun in unforgettable digital worlds will always haunt my memories, and reliving those moments is always a rewarding experience that I crave. Or something like that.
Here is a list of my top ten soundtracks – five are from video games, three are from anime, one is from a visual novel, and one is from a film. My reasons for selecting these soundtracks are fairly simple – they contributed immeasurably to supporting the tone of the medium, and remain interesting to listen to well after experiencing them in context.
This is an update of a similar post from a few months ago, but you should forget that other one even exists. This time, I didn’t forget two that should have definitely been there. And unlike that post that doesn’t exist, I decided against limiting this to original soundtracks. While OSTs can provide new and interesting music, licensed soundtracks can also do a phenomenal job of supporting a film or game.
**This post has basically been replaced (go here), but I don’t plan to delete this outdated one. You should just ignore it.**
I have yet to do many posts concerning music, so I figured I’d overlap it with topics a bit more close to home – anime and video games. So here’s a little selection of tracks from some of my favorite OSTs. Enjoy!
Nothing on this list is exactly obscure, but oh well. And since I couldn’t quite decide on a proper order, they’re just listed alphabetically.
