Join us as we celebrate 5 years of VGMRips with many of the people responsible, not only for its maintenance and up keep but its creation. We’ve asked our friends to share a song that has significance to them and to tell us about it in their own words. This led to an episode crammed with beautiful tunes (across many platforms) that we all think you’ll enjoy.
Thank you VGMRips community, for all that you’ve done for video game music lovers and also preserving these tracks for generations to come. We’re so proud to be a part of it. Here’s to 5 more years!
