Video games always seem to bring individuals together. Whether a group of people sit around the TV, fighting it out in Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo, or join arms and pull an all-nighter while playing Secret of Mana, people and video games just click together well like pepperoni and pizza.
Another thing that resonates so well with gamers are video game soundtracks. Koji Kondo, Nobuo Uematsu, and Grant Kirkhope are just a few of the many amazing composers that have blessed the games industry for years, and we as Nintendo fans have decided to dedicate this week’s Audiophile to our favorite songs from any Nintendo platform.
Here they are:
Donkey Kong Country 2 – Stickerbrush Symphony
DKC2 – Stickerbush Symphonyhttps://t.co/I6RGSrSJ4N

Get ready for an incredibly epic tune from Etrian Odyssey 5
I know this will likely be full of people choosing Mario/Zelda so I'll choose something from a more niche series. https://t.co/0TWIZGEYvl
