The Vinyl Art of Video Game Soundtracks

You don’t have to be a video game aficionado to appreciate the graphic design of these enticingly collectible vinyl releases of each title’s respective soundtrack. As someone who has been dedicated to listening to more music on vinyl again, it’s going to be difficult to not give into the temptation to collect all four of these record releases for gaming titles on the basis of graphic design alone: Monument Valley (which we once called, “the most beautiful game“), Journey, Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns, and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.

Each record is pressed with colorful 180gram vinyl, accompanied with beautiful gatefold artwork within.
