I'm sitting here at 4:04 in the morning thinking, "Ya know, OC Remix has got an idea of what music really is," while doing my daily/nightly browsing. The concept that "video game music is not just background" as the mission states. I have always agreed to that. I have been listening to, collecting and enjoying VG music since I can remember. I've endured the arguments about how Video game music is just "stupid, repetative, annoying, NOT MUSIC (grr), and NOT NECESSARY for a game" and come out on top in most cases (depending on how stubborn the person was).
I've always felt that Video game music has so much passion and work into it, that its more than just music. Unlike a lot of todays nobody music artists, who have people writing for them and they just sing about things that really are quite arbitrary, every aspect of VG music has life to it. It has a function a purpose behind it. It sets a theme, defines a moment, makes a memory, even participates in the actual gameplay. Without the music there wouldn't be a game. I listen to it, and it crosses my mind "I remember that moment when so and so died" or "Man that is my favorite stage" just because I here that theme.
Game music, is in fact, music as any other music is. And, yeah, I'm stating the obvious to everyone who reads this, because, we'll I know we're all gamers here, but I really enjoy the fact that this site exists. I hav been blown away by the remixes put out by all the DJs on this site (since theres so many to name lol). So simply put, KUDOS to OC Remix for one of the best sites on the net and my homepage. I wish I had the talent you guys had. And maybe someday, I'll get my own remix made and submit it. Til then, I'll just enjoy all yours .
