The Grue Crew Episode 5: The Best of Music in Games of 2013

Welcome to the fifth episode of The Grue Crew!

The Grue Crew is a games-focused podcast hosted by that focuses on video games in a broader cultural context. We’ll strive to discuss not only what makes games fun, but what makes the tick and why we find them so fascinating.

This episode is a bit different from the usual fare and opposed to the usual chats the Crew has, this time around host Jon Hamlin and producer Nick Hahneman sit down to listen to a selection of some of the best music we heard in games last year. 2013 was an amazing year not only for games, but for the music in games. From solo artists to giant orchestras, games built around music to others embellished by it, there was much variety in the music we were treated to in games last year.

We’ve built this episode as more of a radio show, wherein we take you through a number of titles that represent some of the best of music in games that 2013 had to offer. This list was developed in conjunction with a written post by Jon that will be going up later this week, so if you like what you hear be sure to check that out for the full list!
