Who can forget the clever theme music to our favorite childhood video games? The video game instrumentals of the past consist of the most intricate and unique sounds. Since the creation of the 16-bit gaming system blew up in the 1980s, the world of video games went through a revolution. At the time, the graphics were colorful and impressive to kids and young adults around the world. The theme music also made a historic mark in the gaming world by setting the precedent in overall production.
RBMA brings us a new documentary series entitled ‘Diggin’ In The Carts‘, which touches on the history of video game theme music.
