"The Encyclopedia Bombastica is a collection of the greatest and most influential video games ever made, published in special editions of the highest quality, complete with special features showcasing the history and the art of gaming."
Taken right from my blog, this list was first published on July 11th 2009, with new songs being added over time. Songs with * are not part of the official soundtrack; I added them personally after they were tested either in-game, or using the E3 2008 trailer which works just as well. Its last update was May 22nd 2010, and if you listen to them in order, it's a blast.
