As some of you might not know or may already have an inkling about, I myself am a gamer of sorts. I play on a selection of mediums and with a lovely group of individuals I might add, but back to the main topic at hand.
Music in games, for me, can either make or break the game. The auditorial components to any game is key in adding atmosphere, mood, emotion, intensity, suspense, and a whole variety of things. There are games I can listen to the entire orchestral soundtrack (BioShock, Fallout 3, etc) and feel as though you’re right there in the game, whether your walking down the street or sitting on the train into work. If an opening sequence to a game gives me the chills, grasps me in heart and soul, then it’s a keeper.
One such game as hinted at in the title is the badassest, kickassable game around :: Borderlands 2!
