There’s not enough Rock ‘n’ Roll in gaming is there? Sure, we’ve seen the Rock Band and Guitar Hero franchises squeeze every last bit of life out of our favourite air-guitar tunes with it’s party-time gameplay (let’s be honest, how many of us haven’t at least tried to play either of those titles when pissed, with a few mates and want to pretend to be Jimi Hendrix or similar?) with titles specifically focused on artists such as Green Day and The Beatles. Yet despite the world of gaming being so utterly massive, there’s a distinct lack of games for those with a more alternative music taste. Brutal Legend, starring the legend that is Jack Black alongside cameos from rock-gods such as Ozzy Osbourne and Lemmy, is the only title that would immediately spring to mind. So, we here at MOSH have picked five tunes that we think would fit in nicely with an equal number of computer games. Hit us up in the comments to let us know if you agree, disagree or have some of your own suggestions. For now though, let’s take a look at our choices.
Moose Blood – Gum / Life Is Strange
What does an arty game starring a couple of hipster ladies need? An equally hipster soundtrack is what! Just looking at the video for ‘Gum‘ by the fabulous Moose Blood is enough proof to set this as the perfect soundtrack for this killer title. Fairy lights? Check. Unique and arty story line open to interpretation? Check. All the nineties emo influenced excellence you could need? Check. It’s a match!
