Welcome and Introduction from the Editors
Welcome to Emotion in Video Game Soundtracking. This book presents an overview of this exciting, emerging field. Before we begin, we should probably get one thing settled: is it “Video game” or “videogame” (or indeed, some other permutation)? According to industry insiders, the accepted standard was “videogame” until “video game” started to yield more internet search results (On “Videogame” Versus “Video Game” 2017). So, we are going with video game/s. But if this really worries you, feel free to substitute your preference each and every time you see an instance, which will be a lot by the time you have reached the end of this book.
