Sound Byte: Best of 2012 In Game Music
We take you to an audio-filled ride on the game soundtracks that made this year great.
With GameSpot's Best of 2012 Awards and People's Choice still running, we figured it was appropriate to celebrate the music of 2012's games. Truth be told, we were blessed with a lot of genres of music this year: we had orchestras aplenty, electronica and house, ambiance and leit motifs, and dozens more that can work outside the context of the experiences they're tailored for.
Without further ado, here's 2012's finest in video game music.
