Infendo Top 5: Game Music

Top 5 Video Game Music Picks

Here at Infendo, if there’s one thing we love more than grinding through 100 hours of Persona to reach that final boss, it’s the music that we get to listen to while we do it.

That’s why this week on Infendo Radio, we went around the table and asked each other, “what are your 5 favorite tracks from the games you’ve played?”

Here’s what the crew had to say:

Gamer by day, game designer by night - Lukas studied Digital Arts in school, and grew up in the age of the N64 and Gamecube. He's the youngster of the bunch, but that doesn't keep him from shouting out at every available opportunity on Infendo Radio. He often finds himself at the edge of counter-culture (hates Metroid Prime, loves Other M), but isn't afraid to dive into the next big budget AAA title with the best of 'em. Favorite game: Sonic Adventure 2 Battle/Skyward Sword/Ocarina of Time/Zero Escape 2/You get the idea
