Weekly Video Game Track: Super Metroid Theme

Few songs are as noticeable as music from the Super Nintendo era. One of the big games that came out during that time was Super Metroid. All the music in the game has a very dark sound. I remember playing it when I was a kid and feeling uncomfortable during most of the game because of the music. Right off the bat, you get that feeling with the main theme. It has some really low notes that sound intimidating along with some sounds that just sound like screaming. But, there is something special with this game. Especially in the speedrunning scene. The donation incentive during the Games Done Quick marathon of “save or kill the animals”, in the game of course, can pull in nearly $500,000 itself.
