For anyone who has ever flagged a game as one of their favorites, there is a good chance it was done so based on more than just good gameplay or an impressive storyline. This was also done so based on its music. Speaking personally, most of my favorite games do not just have amazing game concepts but also amazing soundtracks, with a game’s music score having just as big an impact on a memorable experience as a game’s mechanics. I, like many other people, associate certain songs with scenes from video games. In some cases, video games have even helped me to discover new types of music that I never knew existed before. As it turns out, its becoming ever more common for game developers to license songs which already exist in pop culture in order to enhance the gaming experience in unique and novel ways. I want to discuss how this licensing method helps build on the preexisting ways that music enhances the gaming experience.
