Time to break out the Doritos and the Mountain Dew, because the series has finally hit 100 entries. Still tons of 16-bit games to cover, leaving me to contemplate just how many more hundred videos I'll make in the future. I just thought I was making a little video feature about sweet gaming tunes, but now I've morphed into this completist mega-nerd seeking to leave no stone unturned, so I guess this'll just go on for many months to come.

Yep, SF2 and the DKC games have cool music, I agree. That being said, I'd like to bring Snatcher to your attention. Like just about everything else in this game (maybe not the voice acting), the music is phenomenal if you ask me. Seriously Kojima, please go back to this franchise after you've served the fanboys your latest offering of cyber-chicks and ninjas running about. Just too good to let it die in obscurity like that. If you've ever heard the song 'Heat Miser' by Massive Attack, I'm quite certain you'll especially like the first tune in the video. If you haven't heard that song, well, stop reading this blog and go to iTunes or something like that. Gar out.
