Game music through the ages

From old-school Pong to modern-day Halo video games have definitely come a long way. What is also interesting to chart, is the variation of music over time in video games. With the ever increasing synergy between the video game industry and Hollywood, we are now at a time when we have movie industry veterans who compose for some bit-budget games – for example, Hans Zimmer of Gladiator and the Dark Knight fame, for COD: Modern Warfare, and game composers crossing over to the movie industry – Michael Giacchino who worked on Medal of Honor going on to work for StarTrek 2009, being a case in point.

Gamespot has a wonderful article on how video game music has progressed over the years @ http://www.gamespot.com/features/6092391/
