In Halo 4, one of the first music tracks you hear is when you emerge in space over Requiem and need to launch a bunch of missiles manually. I remember that I did quite poorly (requiring a couple restarts), but I also realized that I missed a rousing and driving soundtrack. I recently downloaded the Halo 4 soundtrack and upon listening to Belly of the Beast, it immediately reconnected me to the day I ran out launch day and played the game non-stop (not my proudest moment as an adult).
Music can really inspire and motivate (as I mentioned a few weeks ago) or stir memories. With video game music, the sensation is even sharper as it is accompanied with (hopefully) stunning visuals and heightened adrenaline and awareness. Every Friday, I will introduce more music that I enjoy. Hopefully you will enjoy it as well.
What are some of your favorites?
But… what do I know…?
