Day 8: Best Soundtrack
Street Fighter III: Third Strike
When I was in high school, I spent many an afternoon at the arcade. And of course there were lots of fighting games there. But I think the arcade experience did a lot for my music tastes to this day. They had music videos playing as well, so I was exposed to a lot of different styles. When it comes to games, though, it’s this soundtrack that stands out to me.
Jazz, Hip-Hop, Drum and Bass, and Mixture were all represented on this soundtrack, and the complexity of sounds were like nothing else in games at the time. I think this soundtrack helped foster my love of drum and bass years down the road.
To this day, I still play 3rd Strike quite often, and this soundtrack still stands out as one of my favorites.
Day 7: Favorite Game Couple
Kurt (Hayato) and Dia - Harvest Moon: Magical Melody
To be honest, I don’t really care about pairings in games. I almost can’t even think of any official couples besides Tidus and Yuna. In fact, this question was so difficult for me to answer, I almost gave up on the challenge altogether. But then I remembered Kurt and Dia.
I like both of these characters a lot - Dia happens to be my favorite bachelorette of all time in HM. I usually end up dating her, but if I had to lose her to anyone, I’m glad it could be a guy like Kurt. He’s pretty awesome.
