Dialogue Options: You can only keep one videogame soundtrack... Which is it?

What's your favourite gaming soundtrack of all time? Whether it's a well-timed record drop at a big moment or an orchestral score that swells as you head into a boss fight, it's hard to overstate the impact music can have on our gaming experiences. In this week's Dialogue Options, video producer Ellen Causey, staff writer Heather Wald, and news editor Ben Tyrer are all tasked with a rather difficult option: If you could only keep one videogame soundtrack, which would it be? 

A variety of games are brought up, such as Dragon Age, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, and Red Dead Redemption among others, as the trio discuss and dissect how these games usually music, be it a bespoke score or cultivated soundtrack, helps create defining memories in some of our favourite titles.

On top of that, they touch on how Rockstar have effectively been using music in their games for years, whether it's the appropriately aggressive soundtrack to Max Payne, which was written and performed by HEALTH, to the expertly designed scores that accompany GTA games. Oh, and naturally, they also talk about the Wii Channel music. That's just a small part of the discussion, so make sure to watch the whole video at the top of the page.
