You are listening to this.

I think even if you don’t hold much stock in the artistic value of video games, I believe there’s something to be said about the music that’s being made for some of the big budget, triple A games that have come out. While video game music has been around since the 8-bit era to compliment the action on screen, I think at this point there are games out there with scores that can stand on their own as legitimately good pieces without appending “videogame” to their title as music. As an example, here are two songs lifted straight from their respective games. The first one is the theme to Nintendo’s Super Mario Galaxy 2, and the next is “Far Away” from Rockstar’s western-era game, Red Dead Redemption.
