Here's the thing. I love videogame soundtrack loops. I respect composers who can put together something that will set the tone, fade into the background for long periods, but still have a hook that makes it interesting when you just sit down and listen to it. This is a list of some of my favourite video game loops. I'm sure everyone's got their own favourites, but here are ones that put yours truly in a trance-like state of affection by association. Here they are in vague descending order of how much I love them.
10. 'Self-Justified Sacrifies' - Fingerspit
Gods Will Be Watching (2014)
Gods Will Be Watching is a 2014 sci-fi indie game about brutal resource allocation and difficult moral choices. The game is structured into scenarios that ask you to finely balance competing demands to prevent situations from spiralling out of control. For instance, in the opening scenario you are a space terrorist who must keep several hostages subdued enough so that you can hack a computer terminal in peace, without intimidating them so much that they go insane, try to run away and force you to blow their brains out. 'Self-Justified Sacrifices' is the loop that plays during this opening vignette, and its grim oppressive drive will keep shoving you in the back as you repeat the negotiations over and over again.
