  1. Really solid list, but I see you skew Nintendoish, not that they don’t have some of the most memorable game scores in gaming history. Have you ever checked out Video Games Live? It’s a traveling concert where they do suites from video games in concert settings. I was lucky enough to get to go to one of the very first a few years ago with my wife at The Hollywood Bowl and it was so much fun. They did a suite from Sonic the Hedgehog but before it began, they had a full choir there just to sing the SEEEEEEGGGGGAAAAA that would play every time you booted it up lol. Some ones I would add to the list: the Mass Effect series, Gears of War 1&4, Medal of Honor, Battlefield 1, Elder Scrolls: Oblivion & Skyrim, HALO, and a few others I’m sure I’m forgetting. Here’s a blogging tip specific to WordPress that no one told me until I’d been doing this like a year. WP has a 15 tag rule if they’re going to showcase any posts and circulate them in feeds. If you have more than 15 tags its unlikely they or any search engines will pick you up. I had no clue. I thought the more the better, but they apparently do not. It’s agonizing sometimes especially with list posts to cut it to 15 but after 3,000 something posts I kind of do it automatically now. Just a lesson learned. Good idea for a list!

    1. Thank you so much for this useful feedback as always. This is a guilty pleasure of mine, since most of my gaming life has been exposed to Nintendo. I am doing what I can to play non-Nintendo titles. Your feedback has helped me remember that there are some soundtracks I completely missed, so I added more on the list.

      I love anything that deals with remixed versions of themes like Mega Man 2 for instance. Sounds like you had a great time in that event.

      I have the first Halo on the list so far. Need to replay Halo 2 and 3 enough times to bump it up on the list.

      Dude, thank you for that tip. You are a life saver. I will take this as gospel, and limit all my posts to 15 or less tags. Greatly appreciated. You are very kind.

      1. Not at all, it’s just something I fricking wish someone had told me and I think it was months before I asked why my traffic was so low and a WP admin looked over my site and told me the rule, arrrrrgh! The admins are very helpful, actually, and gave me a lot of tips, but that one is one that didn’t even occur to me and they should tell to new bloggers. Mega Man 2 I just got in the Mega Man Collection last night for the Xbox One. Phenomenal game and I can hear the theme in my head right now lol. Keep up the good work!
