The lights are on
Music is a very easy thing to just find in todays world but has anyone ever stepped back and got into music of gaming. We all think about how cool music in games are but do we dig any deeper. This week ive been going back through old games and looking up soundtracks and artist to actullly learn more about it. Ive learned alot about how alot of games we love have music wrote for every moment in the game. My favorite example is Dark Souls. Out of most games tis is one you play majority without music. This game only has music to the people who can reach each of the respective bosses and everyone of them has music to capture there own experience. Im not going to bore you to death about what im doing but i want to create this thread to know what is some of your favorite music in gaming. If you shared it below i would love to check it out music is my life and i would like to see what peoples taste in music is. Because i know im not the biggest classical music fan but if its put in a game right it makes me love it.
I'll go a bit the other way with an Original Soundtrack, not just BGM. ALAN WAKE had amazing production and in-game soundtrack.
Crush 40 Sonic songs!
The ending credit song to infamous one is great. The ending credit and final boss theme for Metal Gear Rising Revengence are also really cool. I think the Ratchet and Clank games have really fun music and when they introduced a radio function in A Crack In Time I thoroughly enjoyed the extra flight music.
"Castlevania" games are known to have amazing soundtracks, usually classical in nature. Especially "Symphony of the Night"; that was one that you could play the soundtrack from in the original PlayStation's music player right off of the game disk :)
"Ia! Ia! Cthulhu Fhtagn!"
God of war's OST is one of the greatest soundtracks I've heard in a game...
