Car Battler Joe 

One of my favourite games ever is Car Battler Joe, released for the Game Boy Advance in 2002 and re-released on the Wii U Virtual Console not too long ago.  It's basically an unofficial remake of the classic PC game Autoduel which I played on my Commodore 64 and Amiga in the mid to late 1980s, but with all the trappings of the Japanese-made RPGs, with some Pokemon-type collecting of car parts too.

The song follows the story of the game from the first half hour of play or so, and the video was made by playing my GBA cartridge on my GameCube with the Game Boy Player add-on, hooked up to a video capture card on my Mac.

We went for a garage rock sound which seemed fitting for a game that involves upgrading your garage to work on your car!
