What music will ring out during your next adventure? What soaring melodies, what elephantine beats, what shocked silence? With each new video game comes a new aural accompaniment, a new collection of custom-made compositions. And so we press the buttons, push the sticks, and lose ourselves once more in the rhythm of play.
2013 was a very good year for video game music. It was just about on par with 2012, though possessed of its own identity and perhaps lacking some of that year's variety. I may not have been regularly running Kotaku Melodic this year, but I still kept my eyes and ears open.
