The final sequence from Bastion was my favourite gaming moment ever - the perfect marriage of writing, game design and music.

Loved the selections. Amon Tobin and Austin Wintory are both my favorite composers.

 

The dialogue, on the other hand, felt totally scripted and unnatural. Why not just talk about your actual opinions on the songs, instead of reading Wikipedia articles or CD quotes?
