SEGA Tribute – Don’t Stop Me Now

March 5, 2011


I made this video back in 2007 or so, when I was first learning how to use video editing tools, and that is a little more than obvious. However, I feel my passion for the company and their games is very apparent and overrides most major complaints I have with it. I put a lot of love into this for no real reason other than a thank you to the thousands – Perhaps millions of great games SEGA has made that so much of us all over the world have loved through the years.

The song is “Don’t Stop Me Now” by the band Queen. After the jump is the list of games included in the video, along with the format they were recorded on in their correct order.



Classic SEGA Music: Hey Hey Why Why – Opa-Opa!

January 17, 2011

Fantasy Zone is an 1985 arcade shooting game developed by SEGA. It was designed in a unique nonsensical manner, making a very childish and happy setting but keeping a very high difficulty along the way. It’s unique shop system concepts were considered revolutionary for the time and it was one of the first side scrolling games that allowed the player to choose which section of the level they wanted to attack first. In a sense, with these and more it can be considered one of, if not the first action RPG. However, the music of the franchise which is largely composed by SEGA’s own Hiro who sometimes is also known as “H.” is considered to be the highest point by many fans, especially the song “Hey Hey Why Why” that is featured in most of releases, which is sometimes also known as Opa-Opa, which also happens to be the name of the series’ protagonist.
