Ocarina of Time Soundtrack and Other Cool Video Game Music

Ocarina of Time Soundtrack and Other Cool Video Game Music

What makes a video game a work of art? Is it a great narrative that connects with the gamer and drives them to delve further into the game? Is it the artwork itself, the splash of colors and shapes coming together to paint a world that we not only believe in but that we want so badly to be real? Or is it the characters that we control, these well imagined avatars that we traverse through the digital plain with, at once guiding but at the same time becoming the character?

GameSniped Video Game Review of Darkest Dungeon

GameSniped Video Game Review of Darkest Dungeon

The cruelty of Darkest Dungeon is what keeps me coming back. The latest game from Red Hook Studios has a creative new take on the RPG genre.

As you progress through exploration and battles each character in your party carries with them the stress of past events. Every hero in your party is changed in some way, and their stress level can either hinder or aid your journey. Read more...
