Music to My Ears: Dragonborn

Ah, Skyrim. What hasn’t been said about this epic game by this point? A beautiful open world full of interesting areas to discover with a character that you could customize in a multitude of ways. A plethora of sidequests and a thoroughly mediocre main story. One of the most robust modding communities in all of gaming. A phenomenal soundtrack.

I’ve been playing the remastered version for our YouTube channel for a couple months now, and episodes started airing this past weekend.

Skyrim is a game that I’ve played all the way through twice before (on Xbox 360 and on PC), but I’m still excited to give the world one more go. The fact that the game looks prettier and has all the DLC out of the box certainly doesn’t hurt. I’m probably still crazy for buying and playing this a third time, though. I can admit that.

The title theme is probably the most iconic bit of music from the game, although there are certainly several other pieces that stand out. I’m a sucker for just about anything with choirs. I actually feel like Dragonborn gets slept on a bit when people think of the best video game music ever made. Here it is in its four minutes of glory.
