We’re only a few days into the second decade of the new millenium. To celebrate what has arguably seen gaming take over as the dominant entertainment medium, I thought it appropriate to honour one of the most overlooked elements of games that has seen tremendous growth in recent year: its soundtrack.
Specifically, games with original soundtracks (that is, not licensed music) composed around the gameplay and events. These are often later released as full albums.
While there have been many amazing soundscapes created for games both big and small, I’ll be covering some of the most noteworthy in various game genres including what is my pick of the best this decade has produced.
