Following the release of OlliOlli on PS Vita and a conversation with Lyle Arends, I was recently reminded of a certain skateboarding franchise that at one time ruled the game industry but has since fallen into obscurity.
I remembered the excellent soundtrack accompanying Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 and looked it up, and sure enough (perhaps due to nostalgia) it’s still excellent, but as I was listening to it all I could see in my mind was my time in the game, speeding through abandoned spaces, ramping metres into the air and seemingly forever on a quest to perfect the elusive ‘900.’
Which songs that you hear regularly (or after seeking them out like I did) remind you of games and your in-game antics? Which games have the best soundtracks that will always be linked to that game for you?
