How does video game music influence games past and present?
Video game music adds flavor to a video game. It can also add a couple of notches to a video game. The music to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series made the video game just as much as the graphics, and the gameplay. As far as the Golden Age games it was important too. Donkey Kong that came out in 1981 has a lot more music than most people realize, and it really does add to the experience. Even Space Invaders with that da da da noise is something that's an iconic memory.
