Tear-jerkers and heart-pounders from the annals of history

Selecting the winners for last week's Greatest Video Game Music #2 giveaway (if you're among them, you'll receive a PM shortly), I find myself succumbing to a familiar urge. Yes, there is no other way. I will, I must put together another round-up of Youtube embeds.... read more

Yes! Yes! Yes! To Dragons Dogma's awesome cheesefest! Can't believe I forgot that one.

Who are the winners by the way , no doubt I won't be one but still , I'd like to see the OXM teams taste in game music.

Even if they did rate Desmond sodding Miles above Ryu in a greatest fighters competition a while back , not that I'm bitter or anything :P :evil:
I used to make arrow in the knee jokes , then Arm Fall Off Boy kicked me in the balls....... Come on Boon , quit teasing us with DLC characters we don't want , give us Arm Fall Off Boy dammit! Or at least give us Detective Chimp........

I'm assuming I didn't win for suggesting in game music should be banned. A travesty. I thought outside the box and this is what happens. Not even an honourable mention for swimming against the tide, bucking the trend and fighting the system that OXM built. A travesty for all the free thinkers amongst us

You didn't win because a) He hasn't done the winners yet - they get a PM when he is finished picking, these are whoever wrote the things choices for RPGs only, I'm assuming Ed, and b) if the competition was to pick a song or soundtrack you enjoy I don't think not picking anything would win, otherwise me not entering beats your apathy.

Option C would be taking you at your sarcasm, and I've wrote too much before I realised so there.

I did eventually suggest Ocarina of Time and no, I didn't actually have hopes of winning. I'm not even sure what the winner wins. Other than immense pride and the realisation of a dream perhaps

Shame Dark Souls didn't get a mention, the haunting melody from Firelink Shrine near the beginning of the game is nothing short of brilliant and sets the tone for the entire game.

Hmm, perhaps I should have tried harder. I like a hat. Still not as good as immense pride though. I hope whoever won woke up feeling a little bit better today (and perhaps wearing a hat)

Going to totally ignore the spelling error in my username in this article. If we are mentioned does that mean we have won?

I was always partial to 'Thing on a Spring's' jingle.
