    I agree, I think that’s exactly what makes Bandcamp so good.

    To be honest, I don't see it going anywhere, at least not as soon as 25 years. I feel like combat sports (boxing, MMA, etc) are a good example of this. Those sports can be very dangerous and yet they are still extremely popular after all these years simply because people love it and it makes a ton of money.

    I normally would agree with you, but in this context i've literally never seen anyone complain about Apple dropping the "Macintosh" moniker, not even hardcore enthusiasts.

    Been listening to a lot of Bladee, specifically his Eversince album. His monotone voice is definitely an acquired taste, but once you get used to it his music starts to become more unique. Also the Yakuza 0, 1, and 2 soundtracks are great.

    After playing one of them 5 years ago, dropping it, and rediscovering the series towards the end of last year, I've been deeply in love with the Yakuza series. So far I've beaten Zero, Kiwami, and Kiwami 2, and they're honestly some of the best games I've played. Such well written characters, combined with a good soundtrack, great plots, and super fun, well fleshed out gameplay. I'm patiently waiting for the remastered collection to release next month so I play the rest of the series.

    This makes me so happy to read because I am also extremely passionate about video game soundtracks, they are my favorite kind of music to listen to and heavily inspire my own work as an artist. I love to analyze them and hear the intricacies of each track. I've never heard of this game before, but I'm glad that it was able to have such a profound effect on you.

    I make music, play video games, make visual art in photoshop, participate in powerlifting/bodybuilding, and am always keeping up to date with the newest gadgets in the tech field. Sometimes I like to read up on psychology but I wouldn't really consider that much of a hobby cause I don't do it that often.

    Persona 5 - my favorite game ever. Loved the series for years and to think they could top Persona 4 is just insane. Best design and soundtrack out of any game I've ever played

    Marvel's Spiderman - This definitely came as a shock as I never thought it would be better than Spiderman 2 on PS2. I actually cried so hard at the ending. Combat system is spectacular and swinging around NYC felt so fluid. The story was surprisingly dark at times and the characters felt very fleshed out because of the good writing and great voice acting.

    NieR: Automata - Oh man...the story of this game is so philosophical and mind boggling. Its funny because I played this right after I played Persona 5 and I was thinking to myself "there's no way this game will have a better story than P5" and yet I honestly think the story is better (I still think P5 is a better game though). Soundtrack is god tier and it really inspires my own work as a musician.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - I almost forgot this game came out this decade because it feels like its been so long since its released. I bought it the first day it came out and to this day its hard for me to find games that get me as immersed as this one. The world building is so good, and the soundtrack is very subtle, yet crucial to the feel of the game. The combat system admittedly isn't great but I had enough fun with the game that it didn't really matter to me.

    I’ve been listening to a lot of new drum and bass, particularly artists like THUGWIDOW and Bakground. Also a lot of Babymetal as usual for me.
