So lately I’ve been listening to a lot of video game music. Sometimes it’s just OSTs or symphonic renditions of my favorite games. Lately, though, I’ve been working a lot to some sweet Nintendo tunes I found long ago and recently – for free!
One of my gaming buddies pointed me to Overclocked Remix (a.k.a. OC ReMix) when I was searching for fun gaming music. Since then, I haven’t been bored! You can find a slew of amazing fan-made music based off several games you know and love, all for free. I listen to these mixes frequently behind the wheel and at work to help me concentrate on writing. It’s pretty sweet hearing the tracks you grew up with remixed, whether it’s chiptune, hip hop, metal, rap, or synth.
Here are my favorite albums. Check them out and let me know which ones you like best!
