Music is an important part of video games, one of the most important there is some would argue. Either way you look at it, the music in a video game can have a big impact and take a game from being good to being wonderful. In celebration of the music of video games, I decided to put forth this new feature. The music of video games is something that deserves to be featured in the spotlight, and so I introduce the inaugural edition of Beyond the Beep a regular feature that will take a look exclusively at the music of video games and the gaming industry. Sometimes we may look at a special category of music, music from a particular series, or feature a particular artist. And of course we are open to suggestions from anyone on what they would like to see! Without further ado, I leave it to our writers.
