Game Theory

013 marks 35 years of video game music (Space Invaders, released in 1978, was the first game to feature a continuous soundtrack). So we took the opportunity to take a look back at some of our favourite examples of video game music and build a 19 track mashup, combining them with some other tracks we love.

The tracks used vary from some of the original 8-bit tracks from the Atari, GameBoy, through to 1990s N64 and PS1 classics, right up to modern day symphonic epics that accompany some of todays blockbuster games…

Tracks used:

Tetris Music A (Game Boy)
Abba – Mamma Mia
Doctor Who Theme
Super Mario Bros
Street Fighter II Turbo
Goldeneye – Chemical Warfare
SBTRKT – Wildfire
Lana Del Rey – Video Games
Michael Jackson – Beat it

Final Fantasty VIII Theme
Time Crisis
David Bowie – Let’s Dance
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 – Main Theme
Basement Jaxx – Where’s your head at
Run DMC – It’s Tricky
