Gaming’s Instrumental Potential
Music is a wonder.
The infinite possibilities and amazement that can be created by an array with musical instruments, or even no instrument at all – only one’s voice is exceptionally noteworthy.

I’ve always been an avid listener to almost any kind of music and a few months ago, I started listening again to an all-time favourite band and I haven’t stopped listening since. I even went as far as buying all their music videos on two flat pieces of sturdy plastic, which is a first for me. I like music videos, but not that much and buying this is really saying a whole lot.
To finally get to the gaming portion of this rambling I needn’t even elaborate on the powerful nature music is able to possess.
There’s so many videos out there where people have taken footage from a favourite series, anime or games and added a song to go alongside it – if done right, this can be jolly entertaining. Game trailers with already released songs can have tremendous impact, see Assassin’s Creed Revelations’ E3 trailer. (Most probably my favourite Assassin’s Creed trailer.)
Personally, I think there is a certain magical element when something you’re familiar with (or fond of) is combined with a musical piece that elevates an already interesting game video. No dialogue is to be found in the video mentioned above and it carries tremendous impact throughout with the ending of the video not being excluded.
Another way music can elevate a game is when you’re playing a game like Left 4 Dead 2 with Heavy Metal blaring into your ears. Sure, it is mindless, but once you’re familiar with the game and your senses are treated to a preferred game coupled with well-liked music, it definitely can be a treat.
With that, I bid everyone adieu for today, but before you go – drop us a comment and tell us about your experiences with gaming that had steamy magnetism with music.
