Vgchartz recently released its top 50 video game soundtracks list: http://www.vgchartz.com/article/275423/vgchartzs-top-50-video-game-soundtracks-10-1/
So I went into it wondering if there were any good music to discover and add to my hall of fame. A lot of the songs I'd already heard and judged long ago, many were types of music I have zero interest in so didn't even have to check, and the few remaining I diligently listened through.
It was a poor result. Nier Automata, Shadow of the Colossus, Kingdom Hearts, none of them were worthwhile. Skyrim, Super Mario Galaxy, nope. Even Assassin's Creed II let me down, which I had high hopes for.
There was only one shining exception to this misadventure: The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt. I started off liking a ton of songs, but slowly narrowed it down because many of the themes were repetitive, slow or grating. In the end I harvested 6 new good songs for my music hall of fame.
The top 50 video game soundtracks as agreed upon by a prestigious video game fan website, and all I got is 6 lousy songs. ::shakes head::
Well, six is better than zero. Valkyria Chronicles 4 came out today, so maybe I can gather some more good music before this is all over.
The new total is 4466, 10.2 days in length.
