BONUS: Replay: a metal tribute to the history of video games by FamilyJules7X

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8-V4yuM984]

How cool is this?! 39 game themes covered in a metal style.

Jules Conroy writes on his YouTube page

This medley was begun a week and a day before it was released. I made this during the same week as my last year of college finals […] Still the time restraint gave me one day for arranging, one day for drum programming, one day for doing all of the mixing and mastering and one day to edit this beast of a video. This was because recording all of the audio took 4 days of straight recording to finish.

While he is a little self-critical about certain aspects of the video, particularly wishing that he’d had more time to practice the green screen techniques, I think it’s brilliant and great, great fun.
