There are plenty of truly wonderful gaming soundtracks out there which can contribute immensely to our personal gaming experiences. I see so many posts on Twitter about great OSTs whether it be appreciation posts, discussions or favourites lists; this topic is certainly a common one – with good reason. However, whenever I see talk of soundtracks, it always seems to be about how well they are written or how suited they are to the game. This is [11:11] after all, so I thought I’d address the topic with a slightly different outlook. As I have a musical background myself, the way music is used in gaming is a topic I’m particularly fond of, so I racked my brains to think of 11 games that have a unique type of soundtrack and / or use of music – the kind that incorporates into the game itself, or those that really go the extra mile to fit into the game’s requirements.
Welcome back to another [11:11] post! So far I’ve talked about Games I Loved But Never Finished and JRPGs I Wish I Had Time To Play, so this time I thought I’d revisit the past and choose a selection of games I used to love when I was growing up.
Ori and the Blind Forest had been sat in my backlog for almost a year. I took an interest in the game way before then due to the stunning visuals originally catching my eye but I’ve always found myself waiting for the price to drop. However, when the sales came around, there always seemed to be a different game at the top of my priority list. Eventually I bought it for 50% off and I can vouch that it was absolutely worth the £7.49 I paid. I’d been putting off playing it for way too long so decided to finally take the plunge last month. I’m so glad I did and my only regret is that I didn’t play it sooner.
I’m here with section 3 of the 30 Day Anime Challenge, as created by A Geeky Gal. I’m halfway through the challenge now and although I tweaked the main challenge from posting every day to posting 5 questions per post every 5 days, I’m very proud of myself for sticking to this schedule! These questions have been the most difficult ones so far but I managed to get there in the end!
