What happened to catchy video game music like the video game music from the 80s and 90s? Yeah, video game music today is very orchestral and what have you, but most of it isn't catchy. I'm talking about that catchy gaming music you find yourself humming to yourself or even want to listen to on you portable music player. The most recent game I can think of that has catchy music is Super Mario Galaxy 2, and that has BOTH orchestral AND catchy music, so it's the best of both worlds. That's a huge exception though. Most gaming music today is mainly ambient background music to set the mood, but it's not very catchy.
I'm talking about in games that most people have heard of.
