  • I enjoyed the music in video game, and also like it very much.

  • James

    Hehe, that was rubbish. Nobody knew anything about games so it was a case of “Err.. I don’t know. I don’t play games. I’ve heard GTA4 is good” etc. etc.

    Lots of good composers in videogames for 20 years now, so it’s not just about liscenced stuff. Big videogame influcence coming into Grime at the moment. Called “Wonky”. Lots of mid range synths and general chaos. Crystal Castles have a good flavour of it as well.

    In all fairness chief, it’s not a games podcast and we all admitted as much – my interest in games ended on level 8 of Flimbo’s Quest back on the C64. David knows his stuff and personally I think it’s a damn fine article if ya get to read it.
