The Video Games That Shaped Me (Nikki Misery // New Years Day)

Gaming and music have much, much more in common than you’d think at face value. For one, many musicians on the road are killing time just by bringing their Nintendo Switch or other systems on long, overnight drives. Makes a lot of sense, of course.

One of the other things music + gaming have in common is artistic expression. It’s hard to not consider games like Super Mario 64 and Okami works of art, whether it’s the freedom of movement or graphic design that defines these games.
