New MobyGoal! We're aiming for 1,500 well documented Arcade games.

Protagonist: Musician

Group Description

This group includes games that feature protagonists who are either professional musicians or otherwise clearly demonstrate an ability to play a musical instrument.

  • Role-playing games in which one of the playable characters is a bard should be excluded from this group. Exceptions can be made only for games that feature main predetermined bard protagonists, e.g. Bard's Tale (2004).
