Video game music

Video game music is the soundtrack that accompanies video games. Early video game music was once limited to simple melodies of early sound synthesizer technology. These limitations inspired the style of music known as chiptunes, which combines simple melodic styles with more complex patterns or traditional music styles, and became the most popular sound of the first video games.

This song is great! The strings are very emotional and the wind instruments give the song a strong body. The song gives a sad yet action-y vibe.
