What is the best video game music?

November 10th, 2014 at 10:00 by Chris Parr

What's the best music in video games?

What do you look for in game music? If you were following our Twitter account during our recent Gaming Week, we asked our followers for their suggestions.

For instance, is it epic songs complete with music videos, like ‘Sadame’ from Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven? This majestic song accompanies the games’ introductory cut scene, and boy does it set the scene! It contains dramatic sword wielding, ninja action, and shows the game’s biggest villain almost killing the main character.

Or perhaps you prefer MIDI revisions of Russian folk songs? The ‘Tetris Theme Tune’ is actually the melodic line from a song called Korobeiniki, whose lyrics allude to the courtship of a peddler and a girl. This is far from the only example of classical songs recontextualised as video game soundtracks: Satie’s ‘Je Te Veux’ is used in the NES game ‘Binary Land’.

Maybe your favourite video game music is iconic and composed exclusively for the series? Think the famous Mario theme, the wonderful Ocarina compositions from the Ocarina of Time, or any of the excellent songs from the Sonic series.

Speaking of Sonic, let’s revisit the epic songs complete with music videos category with this absolute monster (complete with slap bass intro):

Perhaps fully scored soundtracks by world-renowned composers are more your thing? Think Nobou Uematsu’s efforts for Final Fantasy or Koji Kondo’s efforts for The Ocarina of Time (music so good we mentioned it twice).

And who can forget some of the more archaic, obscure choices – but still resonating nonetheless – like Commodore 64’s Arkanoid: Revenge of Doh?

What’s your favourite piece of game music? Add your suggestions below – we are on the hunt for the nation’s favourite!

Plusnet wins 3 Moneywise home finance awards

We’re delighted to announce that Plusnet have won three awards at the inaugural Moneywise Home Finances Awards. The awards were voted for by Moneywise readers and we’re extremely proud to have come out on top in three categories.

Moneywise have built a reputation as the go to place to find providers that are rated highly by other consumers, so to win an award voted for by their readers is something we’re immensely proud of.

Over 5,500 people took part in the recent survey to vote for the best providers and we’re ecstatic that Plusnet came out as winners in the following three categories:

  • Most Recommended Broadband
  • Best Broadband for Service
  • Best Broadband for Value for Money

Andy Baker, CEO of Plusnet commented:

“We believe our customers are entitled to both great value and customer service, without compromise, so it is truly encouraging to have won these awards through a public vote.   We continue to invest in both our product offering and customer service;  we are recruiting more service advisors to our team on a daily basis and will be launching new products next year. 

“We’re really happy to also receive the “most recommended” title too.  It’s fitting because this year we have reached a significant milestone with our unique My Referrals scheme, rewarding over £6m to customers who recommend our service to family and friends in order to earn money back off their monthly bill.”

We’re really happy at winning these awards and we hope that we can continue to grow and offer great deals to customers.
