Day 8 – Best soundtrack
This category is a bit tricky for me since I don’t always play games with the music turned on. I find that it can get rather distracting and overwhelm the experience.
Of course this isn’t always the case. There are quite a few games that make music an integral part of the game play and others that have game play centered on the music (Rockband etc).
But there are only a few games that have music so iconic that I could recognize them out of context. One of them is Super Mario Bros. I could probably recognize every single sound that game ever produced; etched into my brain for eternity.
Even so, the award for best soundtrack has to go to Diablo. Not only did it have fabulous music, but it also created this incredibly haunted atmosphere, even in town!
For being creepy and beautiful, unforgettable and unique, the Diablo soundtrack is definitely my first choice.
