Top 25 Saddest Video Game Songs (25-13)

Top 25 Saddest Video Game Songs

I’ve made it clear that I have a very strong appreciation for video game music in the past, enough so that I have done multiple countdowns before in addition to my Amazing VGM series. My Disturbing video games song countdown was a nice way of showing off a variety of different game songs, so this time I will talk about game songs that make your eyes wet and not your pants.

This countdown is precisely for video game songs that make you cry. Game music can be very powerful and emotional, and the following 25 tracks are among the best examples of how. Of note is that I am also sticking to games I’ve played or am remotely familiar with given that context is an important element. Anyway, make sure you have a clean Xbox on hand for this one.

Also there will be spoilers for most of these games to fully describe the context.

Amazing VGM: Holding My Thoughts in My Heart (Final Fantasy VII)

Final Fantasy VII | Corel Train Tracks

Welcome to this week’s VGM. I have decided that I would go with something that is from a game especially nostalgic to me, Final Fantasy VII. Of course, I’m never one to go with the predictable tracks like “One Winged Angel” or “Aerith’s Theme” or even slightly less common but still talked about tracks like “Still More Fighting” and “The Great Warrior.” The first track that comes to mind when I think of Final Fantasy VII is either “Interrupted by Fireworks” (which I honestly find more beautiful and emotionally moving than “Aerith’s Theme”) or “Holding My Thoughts in My Heart.”

(Outdated) The Guardian Acorn Steam Summer Sale Recommendations

Steam Sale | Capitalism Ho!

Update: Sales over guys.

Steam is at it again with their infamous sales that extend to a majority of their catalogue. However, given how vast this catalogue is, how will one know where to look? That’s what I am here for; to provide my readers with a list of recommended games for purchase along with their sale price. Additionally, there will be Amazon links in place of direct Steam links when possible cause I gotta make some money somehow, but they will only be there if the code costs the same on Amazon as it does on Steam (IE is also discounted). Anyway, let’s begin.
