Shadow of the Colossus Soundtrack - Track 01

Day 8: Best Soundtrack - Shadow of the Colossus

Oh, man. Shadow of the Colossus is a work of art, but the music in this game is another whole work of art unto itself. I mean just listen to it.

But not only is the music amazing… it gets better. Some tracks are procedural, so that when you’re in the midst of a battle and suddenly gain the upper hand, the music changes and gets more dramatic as a result.

Listening to it again brings back so many emotions.

Day 7: Favorite Game Couple - Chell and GlaDOS, Portal/Portal 2

I’m picky about relationships—in general, not just romantic ones—in games. It’s hard to find interpersonal relationships that are actually done well, or done in an interesting enough way that I feel like they actually add something to the story.

Rarely am i comfortable when the player character gets shoehorned into anything by a game, whether it’s “hey this guy is your cousin!” or “odds say you’re probably a straight man, let’s sling a caricature of  a woman in your direction!” I hate that shit. But Chell and GlaDOS? That was never forced. The games made me feel like I was a part of that relationship, too.

The relationship between Chell and GlaDOS is such a rare thing, and is done SO well, and can be seen as platonic, or obsessive, or love/hatey, or… it’s just great. Chell doesn’t even have to say a word and yet the dynamic between them works so well.

tbh I don’t see the fuss about having waiters/waitresses not being happy and enthusiastic like I came here to eat I didn’t come here to be amused by employees as long as I’m getting my food and they’re not being blatantly rude I don’t see why y’all need to go on yelp to rank a restaurant 0/5 and have an outburst on why your waitress didn’t smile at you when she poured you water

this is pretty fucking important
