Creative Christmas Day 4: Which video game soundtracks would be on your playlist?

🎶   22 December 2017:   It’s now Christmas Eve and you’re throwing a lively party for all your friends, family and favourite characters. Which video game soundtracks would be on your playlist?

There are so many good video game soundtracks to chose from. I’m not really a soundtrack person though – I like hearing real musicians play songs from games…Sega games!

I’d definitely say the Outrun soundtrack…an all time gaming classic. Let the SST Band, comprised of Sega in-house musicians, show you a Passing Breeze!


Another Sega game I love is Super Hang On. I raved about the sound track to this recently as part of the 30 Day Video Game Challenge. Here is Tetrimino with their take on Outride A Crisis…it’s one of the best things I’ve ever heard.


Of course, no party is complete without 1) moshing and 2) Altered Beast. So I’d let Brazilian metallers Megadriver take us out….

I even wrote a ten point defence of Altered Beast over the summer and I stand by these points. I advise you grab a copy of Altered Beast next time you see it reduced in a sale…

Guilty Party – everyone bar Retro Redress

Crime – not appreciating the greatness that is Altered Beast

Redress – Retro Redress will defend Altered Beast the best he can

I’m fairly new to blogging on the internet and have only really been reading up on gaming opinions and analysis for the past few years. Generally, I’ve really enjoyed myself – there are some great people to discuss games with and some brilliant writers and bloggers out there. However, there is one thing that bothers me…It’s the general consensus on Altered Beast.
