Christians are gamers too and vice-versa. Including metal bands and rappers of all stripes!

Its no secret. Videogames and Christian bands and artists from metal to rap are often gamers, just like I am. The result is that many Christian Metal and Hip-Hop artists grew up with videogames and thus are inspired by them or pay tribute to them in their awesome songs.

So what Christian songs of Metal and Rap feature videogame references? PLENTY.

This list comes from my own personal observances where I’ve noticed videogame references in the Christian metal and rap songs I love.

Please leave a comment to let me know of other Christian songs where you’ve noticed videogame references and I’ll add them to the list! Eventually I hope this will become a masterlist to find videogame references in modern Christian music!

What is the Videogame Reference? “Al and Jesse don’t speak for me. I’m probably gonna catch some flack, mayne/ But I’m gonna swallow this pill like Pac-Man” at about 58 seconds into the music video.

This awesome box set includes a 11-disc series soundtrack, Bluray anime, artbook, statue & 4 games!

A Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Box Set has been announced by Cacpom, celebrating the TWENTY-FIFTH Anniversary of the long-running fighting game series. To make matters even more interesting, Capcom thought a sweet $150 dollar Collector’s Set to go along with the anniversary of the game that birthed the fighting game genre was in order. Huzzah! Er… Hadoken!

Sadly though, the set DOES NOT contain every game released in the Street Fighter series…. which seems like a HUGE missed opportunity. But what you do get is several modern and classic games in their modern forms, along with TONS of extras and some very cool additional content.

The Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set Includes:
* Street Fighter X Tekken, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, and Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition Games.
* All downloadable content ever released for the four games.
* Two-Disc Bluray Set containing: “I Am Street Fighter” 25th Anniversary Documentary, The entire Street Fighter: The Animated Series TV Show, Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie, Super Street Fighter IV Original Film on Bluray.
* 11-Dist Street Fighter soundtrack set spanning the ENTIRE FRANCHISE and it’s amazing music!
* Hardcover Art Book
* 8-inch Ryu Statue that lights up at the base
* Full-size Ryu Belt Replica
* Certificate of Authenticity

Here is a Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collection Box Set trailer!

There will only be a limited amount of these Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collection Box Set’s produced, so if you want one, you better save up money for it and buy it now! You can pre-order Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Box Set on Amazon, they are sure to sell out.

Official Synopsis:

* Experience Past and Present Street Fighter Games: Gamers get a snapshot of Street Fighter with four critically-acclaimed games that represent important chapters in Street Fighter history.
* Light-up Ryu Statue: Standing 8 inches tall, the highly detailed Ryu statue features the iconic character in mid- Shoryuken with flames that light up from below.
* Blu-Ray Video Set: The exclusive Blu-Ray two-disc set includes a documentary that highlights the profound influence the franchise has had on fans – and vice versa – throughout the years.
* Soundtrack: 11 discs worth of Street Fighter music spanning the past 25 years. Two of the discs include remixes and fan-created music inspired by past Street Fighter games.
* Art Book: The 64-page art book pays tribute to Street Fighter fans from all over the world and includes fan pieces submitted by professional and aspiring artists alike.

Isn’t is CRAZY to think that Street Fighter is a whopping 25 years old? That means I was two when the original Street Fighter hit Japanese arcades. :/ YIKES!

Capcom will also be putting on new tournaments to celebrete the 25th Anniversary of Street Fighter and to promote this boxset, and the tournaments will be started in July 2012. They’ll be handing out $500,000 worth of prizes, so get in on it if you think you can win!

 

Silent Hill 1 (PSX) Videogame Soundtrack Download (Free) – Episode 1

Videogame soundtracks are a beautiful thing, yet many people do not even know they exist. They DO exist and I plan to highlight them here, plus give you a link so you can download each soundtrack yourself and listen to the whole thing with one click.

The files will be zipped, so you’ll need a zipping program to unzip and listen to them (each was personally zipped by me, so you can trust that they will work perfectly and are free of anything that would harm your computer). Hopefully you will be able to discover some new music that you never would have listened to before, or catch up on music from a favorite or classic game that you never got around to downloading.

The sad reality is that most people do not purchase videogame soundtracks, they simply download them online. Although I will be contributing to this, many of them are not officially available or are hard to come by through official sources or typical music stores. Although that has become easier in recent years. You can even buy videogame soundtracks via the PlayStation Network. When possible I will link to where you can officially purchase the soundtrack. One of the best ways you can do so however is by simply purchasing the game.

Either way, popularizing videogame soundtrack listening by spreading the love is a noble endeavor, and will only seek to make people more aware of the videogame music genre as a whole. So sit back, download and enjoy. :)

Free Download – Silent Hill 1 Videogame Soundtrack (PS1)

Akira Yamaoka is the long-time composer of the Silent Hill series and responsible for part of the main aspect of Silent Hill’s success and the reason that the game became so popular and beloved… the insanely creepy sound, music and effects which played psychological tricks on the players mind to enhance fear. He (Yamaoka) also worked on other Konami games including Snatcher (1994), Contra: Shattered Soldier (2002), Rumble Roses (2004), No More Heroes 2 (2010), Lollipop Chainsaw (2012), Rumble Roses XX (2006), Sine Mora (2012), and Shadows of the Damned (2011).

Akira Yamaoka has also worked on every succeeding Silent Hill game including Silent Hill 1 (1999), Silent Hill 2 (2001), Silent Hill 3 (2003), Silent Hill 4: The Room (2004), Silent Hill: Origins (2007), Silent Hill: Homecoming (2008), Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (2009), Silent Hill: Book of Memories (2012) and Silent Hill: Revelation 3D (2012), the upcoming 2nd film. Providing vocals on the Silent Hill soundtrack is Vanesa Quiroz and helping to compose on all the tracks was Rika Muranaka. Rika has also sung on many other Konami games, some of her other work includes the Metal Gear Solid series (1, 2 and 3), Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Silent Hill.

This album was only officially released in Europe and Japan, which is strange considering that Silent Hill for PS1 was released in the United States before anywhere else. The entire running time of the album is 1 hour, 11 minutes and 48 seconds. The Silent Hill Official Soundtrack was released in Japan on March 5, 1999 and in Europe on July 26, 1999. The ID # for the Japanese album is: KICA-7950, and the ID for the Europe album is: KOE-CDS-002.

The album contains 42 songs in total. Here is the complete tracklist, click the link above to download the full album. Enjoy! :)
