With the constant barrage of Humble Bundle-like deals, I've developed a bad habit of buying discounted indie games and only playing them for an hour or two -- if at all. Although I feel guilty when that happens with pricey AAA releases, my conscience is usually clear when it comes to indie packs. Sure, they're absurdly cheap and the money generally goes toward a good cause anyway, but the real reason is because many of them have spectacular soundtracks that are worth several times the asking price of only a buck or two per game.
Indie games have been a great way for me to discover new music, particularly instrumentals, which is what I prefer listening to while working. It's hard to name one soundtrack as my favorite, but I've really enjoyed the music from Capsized, Sol Survivor, VVVVVV, Super Meat Boy, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, The Binding of Isaac, FTL: Faster Than Light, Hotline Miami and many others, including big budget games such as the Splinter Cell, Hitman, Elder Scrolls and Mass Effect series. What are your favorite game soundtracks -- indie or otherwise?
In the frigid northern province of the continent of Tamriel the legendary dragon god Alduin rises, bringing with him a plague of ferocious flying lizards and the promise of the end of the world of Nirn. Only one being stands between this malevolent force and the people of the eponymous province Skyrim: Dovahkiin, the Dragonborn, a figure blessed with the ability to absorb the very powers these terrible creatures seek to unleash upon the land.
