Honorable Mention #19
Mass Effect OST
Is it becoming obvious that I love video game music yet? A lot of Mass Effects soundtrack is pretty ambient, unnoticeable stuff. Until you put it on your iTunes or something while you’re typing. Songs will come on and you’ll be like, “what the hell is that? That’s cool”
(checks iTunes, sees what it is) “Ohhhh, Mass Effect!”
. Of course, the standout tracks really stand out. Personally I love the club music. When I first walked into Upper Afterlife and heard that pumping music through the door I wondered what was going on. Then I walked into the room, saw all the video screens, the dim lights, the Asari dancers and the music hit me in the face. That was fucking awesome. I'm the biggest, fattest, Harry Potter look-alike geek out there, but I still want the music from Purgatory in Mass Effect 3 to follow me wherever I walk.
