Video games can have such a large influence over the music someone will listen to over time. PS - This post is big part nostalgia
Nostalgia & Music
Music can be a very powerful time capsule for feelings, emotions, state of mind and all the works.
At some point, I decided to embrace that experience, the trip down memory lane, the feeling of nostalgia.
A lot of my library today is influenced by trying to capture that feeling of nostalgia. Video games were a very big part of my life growing up, and I was introduced to a very wide array of music.
Soundtracks & curated music are a very important dimension of the gaming experience.
Need for Speed Pro street
This song started randomly playing back in my head, & I knew straight away it was finally time to flesh out this post.
I have many fond memories of playing pro street, lots of them with my young brother. I'm sure I completed that game's career at least 5 times. I've always enjoyed NFS games that lean more on the sim racing than arcade side.
Def Jam Vendetta
I remember thinking this game was so cool, because of 2 reasons:
- Strong Hip Hop culture
NFS Underground 2
What games did I miss, which video games have a memorable soundtrack? let me know, genuinely curious :)
