It’s that time again for the SoCal Gaming Expo, an event that was held at the Ontario Convention Center, in Ontario, California. Its major draw is the vendors sending wares of retro video games, hardware, and accessories. A few independent developers were there to showcase their latest projects. There were also panels of guests, including voice-over actors and actresses, that shared their experience with video games.

This week, we’re back with another man-on-the-street episode, talking with random strangers about VGM and their awareness of covers and remixes of VGM. A few cosplayers, some vendors, and a few developers were asked several questions; one of them even mentioned a track inspired by a video game.

Enjoy listening to these people talk about the experience with VGM, and if you were one of those interviewed, your time and answers were very much appreciated.
