Tunes to Go - The Best Handheld Gaming Music

Music is an important part of everyone's life. Whether you are a sucker for a sad song or not, it is undeniable that music is a major part to any good game. Some games sport generic loops throughout the entire adventure while others go above and beyond with incredible compositions that will unfortunately never be remembered simply because they were part of video games, which according to this generation can not be mature unless there is a school shooting, in which case video games are suddenly completely mature and are to blame for all violence.

Sorry, getting a bit sidetracked. Or maybe I'm not, these songs I have selected can fill even the saddest soul with emotion. These are masterpieces and should be regarded as such. Music like this, especially on handhelds, should be highly appreciated. I'm not going to share my thoughts on each song, I'm just going to let you listen to them and think what you want. Music should be left up to interpretation.

Pokemon Black/White - Emotion

Mother 3 - Love Theme

Chrono Trigger - Wind Scene

Ok, ok, I know. Way too many feels for one day right? Have no fear, this last song will perk you up. Take a listen to this ultra funky chiptune version of the Metal Gear Solid theme! It is from the surprisingly good GBA kart racer called Konami Krazy Racers, which I think is even better than Mario Kart.

Konami Krazy Racers - Cyber Field


Thanks a lot. Who knows how long it'll be until Cyber Field stops looping through my head.
