Is VGM as a whole over-rated OR under-rated?
That is the big question on my mind right now!
As much as I absolutely love & adore the genre (if I didn’t then I would have never created this blog after all) I hate to say it but VGM IS slightly over-rated especially because it overshadows other components of a game!
In order to prove my point I’ll use an analogy from a cartoon:
“If music is the heart of a video game then the characters & story are the liver & gallbladder!”
In other words music isn’t the only thing needed to make a game work!
In my analogy above all 3 of those internal organs are needed for your body to function properly & the same also holds true for games!
There is more to a game then just the music
it REALLY ticks me off when that’s the main reason people want to play a game!
Yes I understand a game without music would be dull, boring, & lifeless but still!
Does anyone else feel the same way?
If you do please post how you feel in the comments thanks in advance!
The honest truth is there isn’t a single genre of music that is TRULY under-rated
Not even VGM!
Also just for fun:
can you guys figure out what cartoon I am referencing in my analogy & the episode where said reference originated?
If you think you know please post your answer in the comments!
this is an over-rated & EXTREMELY popular long-running cartoon on Nickelodeon!
