Tira overrated tale e cup marketing head e toca fucking Hollow Knight.
Because, "no cost too great".
Great video, btw.

im not really into complaining about the game you left out like some of these other ppl, but i am into complaining about all the years you left out….

That Minecraft one made me have a mental breakdown cause all my memories just kinda flooded back and now I wish I could be back when I could just not care.

I didn't realize how good diablo could sound on the piano. I think the AoE 2 soundtrack is really good and am glad he played a part. Was hoping to see WoW vanilla or burning crusade's theme/loading screen song. Also some starcraft would be cool.
ps. They are billions

the thing i love about this guy's videos is that while he's playing his eyes are doing commentary.

Can you do a version of 70's games too? Most people don't realise that there were computer games in the 70's too!

Questo video non mostra l'evoluzione della musica. Non c'è alcuna indagine in questo video se non un esecuzione e basta. Per esempio perché non hai detto che il tema di Tetris si chiama Korobeiniki che è un canto popolare russo di guerra? Oppure la traccia numero c per game boy che è la suite francese numero 3 di bach il minuetto? Oppure perché in castlevania Belmont revenge c'è Passepied di Debussy.. Perché in minecraft non hai detto che quel brano era Gymnopedie numero 1? Questo video non accultura e non c'è una evoluzione. C'è un esecuzione che non indaga le origini e neanche la struttura delle melodie. Così come neanche si focalizza sulla diversità degli strumenti ben utilizzati nella musica moderna con tastiere e Kontakt 5 oltre che a Library's molto costose per produrre.. L'evoluzione é stato il graduale uso dei brani di musica classica dal 1600 vedi bach ai canti popolari russi di inizio 1900. L'utilizzo sporadico di Ragtime e l'influenza delle colonne sonore da cinema che oggi si fanno in casa solo con strumenti campionati. Mi dispiace per la scelta dei brani proprio non eccellente o per lo meno non curata sotto il profilo armonico almeno brani come tetris o super Mario potevano essere preparati meglio.. O studiate le partiture originali. Puoi migliorare tanto aumentando l'interesse. E poi perché per esempio.. Non c'è un brano come FF7 battle per piano di Nobuo Uematsu? Con quello si che facevi un figurone.

Skyrim may not be nostalgia yet but it's probably the best game I've ever played. Looking forward to Elder Scrolls VI: Redfall. Meant to be played for a decade, huh? They've almost achieved it with Skyrim so if Bethesda don't fuck this up like they did with Fallout 76, it WILL be played for a decade and onwards.

In the U.S.A. without health insurance you would pay $150-$3,000 depending on the injury and necessary tests. Also depending on treatment the cost could rise to $20,000.
If you decide to visit I hope you enjoy yourself and I apologise in advance for the rude and entitled of my country.

Everything info about the Minecraft one was wrong
He played Gymnopedie
Minecraft was released in Java, so not Windows
and in 2011, not 2009 xD

That's not Minecraft music, that's the music of my favorite web game, GOIME 500. And every time I hear it, I can't resist the urge to replay it. See you in an hour.
