List of Games Without Music

From Video Game Music Preservation Foundation Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a Wiki for video game music and, while music is expected in any modern video game, earlier games often could not afford the luxury of music due to technical constraints. Some modern games also lack music as an artistic decision by the developers.
