death's blog about game music reminded me of the Ballad of Black Mesa, despite not actually being video game music. Instead of being music made FOR a game it's music made FROM a game, and that kicks ass.

After which I discovered these other ones.

These are badass. Every game should have one of these remixes. Best for last:

I just wanted to share those.

If anyone knows of any more of these, let me know.

I love these things. I'm too lazy to pull any up now, but I used to watch these things all of the time.

I love this kind of stuff.

If I ever make a shooter game, it will be promoted through various Gunbeat mixes.

i was working on a story with a guy called the Black Mesa Killer, and i've never heard this thing before. my mind is seriously blown.

Black Mesa is the setting of Half-Life 1.

never played Half-Life :> makes sense though. anyway, i wasn't expecting a song made out of gunshots. even from the blog title. …i'm an idiot.

Thanks Kamira.

These make me wonder if this kinda thing could actually be choreographed and played live in a multiplayer game.

I suppose that qualifies… but I'm not happy about it.
