So for a school project...


#1

I’m doing a movie on the evolution of video games in which I’ll be using footage of video games from 1985 to the present hopefully with each year being 45 seconds to a minute long. Now I need music for each year as well as a few video games to show video of, so I was wondering if anyone here has any suggestions on games/music for years.


#2

Well, there’s a few you HAVE to include because of their impact on gaming.

1985 - Super Mario Bros.
1986 - The Legend of Zelda
1987 - Final Fantasy
1989 - Tetris
1992 - Wolfenstein 3D
1997 - Final Fantasy VII
1999 - UnReal Tournament
2001 - Halo: Combat Evolved
2004 - Half-Life 2
2006 - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

I would include these just out of adoration:

1997 - Starfox 64
1998 - Brave Fencer Musashi
2005 - Tales of the Abyss
2008 - LittleBigPlanet

I’ll post some music in a bit.

[SPOILER]God, I’m having more fun making these lists than I should.[/SPOILER]

Final Fantasy has an impact on gaming?

As I recall, no one outside of 4 people knew about Final Fantasy until FFVII came out.
:stuck_out_tongue:

Games that I feel have significant importance to gaming…

(pre-1985) Pac-Man, Donkey Kong

(1985-Present) Legend of Zelda, Contra, Super Mario Bros. 3, Sonic the Hedgehog, Street Fighter 2, Resident Evil, Super Mario 64, Metal Gear Solid, Pokemon, Grand Theft Auto 3, Wii Sports (yes, I went there).

I could probably think of many more if I weren’t this tired.

As for music… you looking for music in general or game-related music?

My plan was to use game music from the year so yeah :stuck_out_tongue:

Where is doom on there?

Why is half life and oblivion on there?

Because you touch yourself inappropriately.

How do you APPROPRIATELY touch yourself, nothere413? :smiley:

I wear frilly wrist cuffs and speak in a British accent while I touch myself.

Nah the class is mostly full of emo FFVII fanboys who love Sonic the Hedgehog and shouting memes around the fucking school like they’re all cool because they know them.
