With 2013 coming to a close I think it's a good idea to take some time and remeber all the great music in games we've enjoyed over the past 365ish days. An essential, if overlooked, portion of any game, music can come in practically any style and form in a game. So lets give a shout out to what we've been so engrossed by.
Just a forewarning, this article is going to be rather Youtube link heavy. Also, this isn't a list of the "best" game music over the year, just pieces I've enjoyed, and I encourage you to chime in with your own opinions.
