Game music of the day compendinarium

Your one-stop-shop for each and every GMOTD article

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!
