Retro VGM Revival Hour – Tim Follin

While a small number of video game composers go on to achieve great fame thanks to their work in the industry, there are countless others who receive little to no attention at all . One of those often forgotten great video game composers is Tim Follin. A talented individual who’s career has been often hindered by the poor quality of the games he composed music for, so such that despite his considerable talent as a composer, his work is regularly overlooked in favor of other, more well known composers who simply had the good fortune to work on high profile releases.

Regardless of the overall quality of the games Follin worked on, he always gave it his all and made some of the most memorable tracks in video game history.

Tim Follin is unmistakably one of the absolute greats in the world of video game composition. And this is why This STAGE of the Retro VGM Revival Hour is dedicated to the great works of Composer TIM FOLLIN.
