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.

The following is a list of games that do not play music. These games should not have a game page in the Wiki unless there is something special about their lack of music, or music was made for the game and is available, but was not used in the game.
