Ok, this isn't really "news" but we here at Awkward Machine love talking about the bones of Video Games almost as much as we love playing them (hence AwkwardMachine.com). We're all too familiar with the significance of music in video games. They help shape a story, enhance a particular mood, and sometimes tie an entire game together to the point where playing without it would strip the game of its character (Think Hotline Miami)

So here's a short history lesson on the importance of music in one of the gaming industry's unique developers Remedy Entertainment.

 Oh, I forgot to mention, Creative Director Sam Lake also does the presentation in slow jam style featuring a sweet remixed Max Payne theme. Well worth a watch!

When the fuck are they making Alan Wake 2?
