Top 5 Main Menu Themes in Video Games

Top 5 Main Menu Themes in Video Games

Games are bloody awesome. But unlike movies or books, there is almost always a main menu at the start of the game, in which you can load, start a new game, or mess about with the settings. These are important as they are usually a players first impression of the game, the job of the main menu is not only to be functional, but to immediately set the tone for the adventures ahead. In this regard, music is the easiest way for games to start off on a strong note, and these are some of my favourite. Now, this isn’t going to be the most visually appealing list, it is after all going to be a series of main menus. I’m going to chat for a bit and then let the music play for about 30 seconds each, so you can get the feel of the piece. So plug in those headphones and clear out those ear canals, as these are my Top 5 Main Menu Themes in Video Games.

When it comes to Magic, there is nothing quite like cracking open some new packs and building a fresh deck to go toe to toe with your friends (or foes). A format in which you construct your deck there and then from "new" cards is referred to as a 'limited' format. This can be from drafting...
