Game music of the day compendinarium

Every weekday someone at GamesRadar takes a moment to honor a classic piece of game music, be it from consoles past or a memorable tune pulled right out of today's biggest franchise. The only problem is, there was no home for each Game Music of the Day article, and within a few weeks there were so many spread across the site that it was nearly impossible to find 'em all.

No more! Feast your ears on our compendinarium of game music!

    No Grim Fandango?! As a Tim Schafer fanboy, I am deeply offended!
  • GamesRadarBrettElston - September 14, 2010 1:09 a.m.

    Updated! Another option is to simply click on the "game music" tag at the end of each GMOTD article. But this is cool too, though it takes time to update. Tags are automatic!
  • enlargedhousecats - August 31, 2010 11:03 p.m.

    You guys really need to do one for the first Rayman game, easily one of the best game soundtracks ever, right up there with the Legend Of Zelda and Mario games!
  • StickyLungs - June 16, 2010 10:32 p.m.

    Thanks for sucking up even more of my life. I have to come back every day now because this is TOO awesome. Curse you, Mr. Elston.

  • kneehighsocks - June 14, 2010 4:29 a.m.

    Thank you so much for this! This will keep me busy for a while. Also prepare for suggestions I was wary to give them out before in case the songs I suggested had already been done. Now I know for sure
