Variety profiles video game composers


To make up for our poor understanding of a recent GameStop post, we've taken a few finance classes and we're ready to show off the results with a little math. In a really interesting piece profiling video game composers, Variety reports that they "can make anywhere from $1,000 to $2,500 per minute of music, and many games demand 80-100 minutes." So, calculation time:

($1,000 to $2,500 per minute) x (80 to 100 minutes) = Oh God, have we ever chosen the absolute wrong part of the video game industry to be involved in.
