PLAYING THE GAME
Ever wonder what Donkey Kongs music would sound like if played by a full orchestra? Yeah, us neither. But what the hell, Video Games Live sounds like a cool concept: the tunes you remember from classic games, played by an orchestra, full choir, and soloists, with all sorts of things happening with video screens, lighting, and special effects. Get nostalgic as you hear tracks from Pac-Man, Pong, Donkey Kong, and Mario to the more modern compositions found in Final Fantasy, Tomb Raider, and Advent Rising. And there will be games to play as well, and a costume contest. Youll feel like youve won a major bonus round.
