The best part of music is the way it sounds.

Some video game series have been known for great things, whether it be the impeccable storytelling of Final Fantasy, the environmentalness of Metroid, the scope of adventure brought forth through The Legend of Zelda, or the back-against-the-wall, fuck-you-up-edness of Halo. Many ‘great’ series are known for many different things, but I venture to say that a series cannot be great without the accompaniment of great music. One feature we plan to unveil through MusicBox over the coming weeks/months/years is the divulgence of video gamedom’s finest, blue-chip series and the terrific music that enhances an already great collection of games.

Series to be covered (as of this moment) include:

  • Final Fantasy
  • Metroid
  • Legend of Zelda
  • Halo
  • Castlevania
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Chrono Trigger/Cross
  • Elder Scrolls
  • Mega Man
  • Mass Effect
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Dragon Quest
  • Super Smash Bros. (the greatest hits collection of the group)

Have any suggestions for superb video game series that tickle the ear as much as one’s fancy?  Comment and let us know!

    Well obviously, the Dance Dance Revolution series has some amazing music. Aside from those “real tunes” though, Sonic would have to be my favorite of all time but it’s already on the list.

    I say you discuss the utter lack of music in Lion Porno Party. They missed a real chance there…
