Forever Gamer

Slow dance/trance-song in 130bpm created by Eirik Blodoks Hafskjold (Skymarshall Arts) and Lars Erling Bolstad (Xenomorph). It's about way back when gaming was magical, and pretty much all we did. Mainly on the Amiga and C64 and various following consoles. And now ofcourse PC.

I sequenced this 70% in FLStudio7 XXL, 20% in Cubase SX3 and 10% in Adobe Audition 1.5. Instruments used are too many to be named, but the main VST was reFX QuadraSID. Vocals where recorded by a RĂ˜DE NT-a1 through a Roland UA-4FX and given a little delay, flanger and chorus. Vocals and lyrics are by myself.

Lyrics are as follows:

Niiiiiintendo .... wohoooo!

I remember a time that I was sitting alone.
And playing my Amiga at home.
Gaming Maniac Mansion and Lotus Turbo,
and U.F.O Enemy Unknown.
Sitting on my ass - doing nothing at all.
But managing in Ports of Call.
No chance in hell I would ever ever get bored of;
killing NVA in Dogs of War.

Yeah, I'm a gamer forever.
I'm gaming whatever.
Together with my lads 'til I die.
I'm gaming forever.
I'm gaming whatever.
Together with my ladies 'til I die.

Ugh that was just cringeworthy

I mean it's just so stereotypical bland and just felt like this was written by a 12 year old. I mean I'm tired of all these songs forcing the gamer lifestyle. And the voice yeeeesh

Too shorten it sorry but I'm not a fan. Better luck next time
