I’m not a gamer & in fact have never owned a console as an adult
but that year in a shared house with two software coders …playing Wipeout 2097 every night was a defining moment for me in terms of getting into dance music

V much looking forward to reading this after lunch.
came in here to say wipeout
I bet they don’t have Psychic Force in there, but it should be.
Metal Gear probably had the best though
THPS and THPS2
The original Grand Theft Auto
Still remember the country song off GTA
can someone stick all these on a playlist please
Let it out by the Hounds was actually a really good song.
Also obvs this
My favourite game soundtrack ever.
Yeah yeah, it’s PS2, but it’s fucking incredible.
Sony always head a head start because they were a music tech firm before a videogame firm, but concentrating on the sound was such a good decision.
Some of the best music I’ve ever heard on ps2 soundtracks, let alone just in a game.
oh man he did the streets of rage music too. Amazing stuff!
if we’re extending it beyond the PS1 I’d say that Flashback for the megadrive had the most powerful sound for me as a kid. It was so brave in it’s sparseness, just a few minimal ominous synth chords occasionally to add tension and the ambience of birds chirping or wet dripping sounds to convey a sense of place/space.
oh my god he did revenge of shinobi too?!? fuck I’d go to a club night that just played his soundtracks super loud that would be awesome
