Video Game Songs - Old and New

Whatever your musical taste, the vast selection of music and songs from video games has something to suit you. The idea of music themes for video games goes way back to Mario Brothers and before. Every game has it's own unique sound. Some are classical, orchestral, maybe electronic, or even golden oldies like in the big hit Fallout Series, every game has it's own musical feel.

Just like a movie soundtrack, or perhaps even stronger than a movie soundtrack, the music from your favorite video games takes you back into the game, even if only for the few seconds of a ring tone or a few minutes of a song.... If video games are a part of your life, then so is the music.

For some who grew up on the dawn of video games, these old classic video game songs bring a feeling of nostalgia. Later generations, who have always known the world of video games, have developed their own taste especially for the songs that go with their favorite games. There is a little bit here for everyone! Find your favorites and download music and songs from the games you love. Vote for your favorite video game songs on video, add to a list of bands you think should make soundtracks to video games, and leave your thoughts in the comment section.
