Stealing from Video Games - The Soundtrack
I'm shocked how much video game music has taken such an epic, cinematic leap forward this generation. One of the most memorable pieces for me is Nate's Theme from the game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (pictured above). It's got a very Indiana Jone-vibe going for it while being both modern and its entirely it's own thing. I'd love to use this during a trying time for the characters in a pulp game.
So you can see that there's a nice mix between instumental and sung music in the game. The tempo's are also interesting. I could see this being both fight music or low key "suiting up" kind of scense as well for the most part, especially Triggernometry (I love this name).
