Now Playing @6Music tracklist July 15, 2011
Is there going to be a new Grand Theft Auto announced very soon? Well that was one of the big questions this week online, and given credibility by Official Xbox Magazine saying it was going to happen.
So this got us thinking, what is the best music from computer games? Think GTA itself, FIFA, Guitar Hero, Tetris and Gran Turismo - both songs made specifically and others licensed can make an awesome difference.
