Bacon Bebop – The Best and Worst of Video Game Music
This facet of nerd-dom is brought to you by Nerd Bacon author ChronoSloth!
Here at Nerd Bacon, we love video games, and there’s no question that the songs found within these games play an important role in our enjoyment of them and the impact they have on us. Can you imagine playing the Final Fantasy series without the emotional music of Nobuo Uematsu, or playing through Super Mario Bros. without that beloved tune known the world over? Of course not. Bacon Bebop is a new type of feature where Nerd Bacon’s various authors cover stand-out pieces (good or bad) from video game soundtracks and detail what makes them special as a composition, where they appear in their source, how they’re effectively used during the game, and what feelings they evoke. Grab your favorite pair of headphones and join Nerd Bacon on a musical journey through video game history! Be sure to let us know what you think of these pieces in the comments and suggest other games and songs for us to cover!
