Sound Check 03 - Filling in the Blanks 1985 to 2009
Inspired by The Hotspot episode 376 where Vinny, Brad, and Alex were playing short clips of numerous video game songs for most of the episode. This is my third Giant Bomb list of making a mixtape of video game songs. For this list, I decided to fill in some other notable video game songs that I recall fondly in from games released from 1985 to 2009. The only stipulation I placed on myself for this list is to not repeat games that I already selected from my first two lists within the years noted, which means I couldn’t use a number of fighting games that would easily be included. I also refrained myself from selecting multiple games within a franchise. There were other games that I would have liked to list but cross off for certain reasons. Nonetheless, here is a curated set of my standout video game songs in rough chronological order of when each game was released in North America.
