Music in video games is one of the most under-appreciated portions of gaming. The right song, the right sound effect, even the right utterance, can elevate a game to another level.

, pulled out all the stops, ranging from seventy plus actors to a song that rhymes both in dragon and english to the Elder Scrolls
theme song. Has your mind exploded yet? Check out Bethesda in their most recent developer diary explaining "The Sound of Skyrim."
