My Thoughts…

I  call myself a gamer. I grew up playing games like  Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy, Mario, Zelda, Tetris, and many others.  I’m very much pleased that many of the games I loved playing have remarkable music of which I am not surprised was  put together on a DVD collection like  this one.

I was going to wait on my husband to watch this collection but with our conflicting schedules, I couldn’t wait any longer and watched it on my own. And though alone, I quite enjoyed watching the Video Games Live show DVD and most assuredly will watch it again.

My props to the creators who put together the whole project. The musical arrangement are phenomenal, the commentary extremely helpful, the video remarkable, and the  interviews were an added bonus in learning a little history behind the music of games I grew up loving.

Whether you grew up playing games or you have children that do, I would recommend picking up a copy of Video Games Live show DVD or CD. It’s a favorite in my household and in my opinion  it’s definitely great background music to enjoy anytime.

Buy it!
