Game music

What game in your opinion has the best music in it. Although this is it doesn't have to be an mmorpg, it can be any game.


In my opinion i would say that everquest 2 has really good music, it's very different to most styles of music and it has a verm warm and fantasy feel to it, which helps you to feel more immersed within the game IMO.

What do you think..

    Battlefield Vietnam.

    For MMOs it is AoC followed by GW.

    AoC then WOW,EQ2 and EVE.I didn't played much Gw1 but the music I remember was good,in fact my favorite music in gw2 is the one inspired or taken from gw1 music.

    Games have music?

    hmmm, best is a touch cookie.

    I remember someone posting a link to you tube to some sort of final fantasy music which he thought was the best. It was horrible. practically two chords throughout (tonic or the "first of the key" and dominant or the fifth of the key") and the theme was, in my opinion, just musical noodling over those harmonies.


    I've liked the Lineage 2/Aioin music. Not all of it but a decent amount. I think the Guild Wars 2 music is very good.

    Though understated, Tera's music is pretty good as it tends to be a bit more atmospheric.

    WoW has some good music though from what I've heard it strikes me to be very much like "movie music".

    Morrowind/Skyrim/Oblvion has good music thought that's Jeremy Soul who did GW2.

    The Witcher 2 has some good music.

    The best game music for me had to be Final Fantasy (multiple games)/Chrono Trigger/Cross - but this could be my nostalgia showing

    As for more modern games and MMOs - WoW had some good tunes and I haven't turned off the GW2 music yet.  Also Dragon Age: Origins had some pretty epic music.  All and all, if its not annoying I leave game music on as it helps me immerse myself in that world/game setting.

    AOC  is undoubtelly the game with the best music soundtrack.

    All of the above that were mentioned have indeed great musicla scores but lets not forget to include  Istaria

    The one that has withstood the test of time for me is the 1st WoW expansion, The Burning Crusade.  Most MMO music is pretty disposable, but that one is an exception for me.

    You make me like charity

    Basically, anything composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto: Ogre battle, Vagrant Story, Tactics Ogre, ect. Also, the Bioshock 2 soundtrack is really good.

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

    Really? I believe that the best element of GW2 is the music... Jeremy Soule is amazing!

    Metal gear solid (PS1) for personal best.

    Might of posted a Star Wars game like Reble Assault or SWG, while awesome scores, I feel using John Williams film score is cheating. image

    AoC and TSW, in that order, have some of the best music I've heard.

    Hell hath no fury like an MMORPG player scorned.

    Final Fantasy series for games in general.  Honestly even though I leave game music on most the time I can't say I really pay much attention to it in MMOs and I can't think of anything memorable.  So I don't really a MMO answer.

    I don't think I've regularly played a game with a bad soundtrack to be honest. Most notable would be EQ2 and WoW. I will say that VG music, though not bad, put me to sleep a few times because if how tranquil it sounded :).

    One thing of note is EQ2's combat music. After the RoK expansion the battle music was composed of 14 tracks that would interchange depending on how you were doing in a fight.
  • AeliousAelious OregonMember Posts: 3,087 Uncommon
    EQ2 and WoW being great soundtracks, not bad. The above post was a little misleading.
  • CrazyCronusCrazyCronus PatrasMember Posts: 47 Uncommon

    I will post my top three favourite game soundtracks:

    1) Elder Scrolls III and V

    2) Classic RPGs like Baldur's Gate 1 & 2, Ice Wind Dale, Neverwinter Nights, Planescape Torment etc.

    3) World of Warcraft

    Its more than three games but hey ;P
