    Forgot games actually had musical scores.


    Need less of this lol.  Its not good when players just turn on the sound effects and music when playing a game.  Thank you for your hard work Mr Composer!

    I can understand why some people do it though, either the music sucks or it's interfering with TeamSpeak or Ventrilo.

    I have to say there are alot of ones I have overlooked from what most of you have gathered.

    Keeping it MMO I loved it when I got a song for a quest reward player WoW, dont know of another MMO that offers a song as a reward. (you dont get the video shown but a nice show with some ghosts, that you see form to totime in the video)

    This is why FFXI is the MMO closest to my heart, even 10 years after release. You didn't just play this game, the music was so robust that it put you INSIDE the game. With composers like Nobou Uemasto and Naoshi Mizuta, I can't exclame enough how the games soundtrack is exceedingly magnificent.

    Currently playing : WoW, Dofus.
    Played: LotRO, FFXI, SWG, Guild Wars, Dofus, WoW.

    Favorite: FFXI

    Another thing I noted in WOTLK expansion, blizzard has zone/location ambiant music for day and night, so you get to listen to a dfferent track when your there in the day or night.. a great little touch I must say, blizzard doing the little things right as always.

    I guess this can only be employed in a game that has a long or realtime day/night rotation such as WoW.

    for example:

    Howling fjord DAY :

    Howling Fjord NIGHT:

    Also on the WoW 3.2 PTR I am loving the Argent Coliseum music real EPIC feel.

    Track 1

    Track 2

    I’m from the 90s generation. I’ll try to post the modern versions…

    DOOM - E1M1 (classic)

    Newer versions exist.

    Killer Instinct – THEME OST

    Unreal Tournament – FACING WORLDS

    Rainbow Six: Raven Shield OST

    Metal Gear Solid: Main Theme

    Of course, Mario, Megaman, Final Fantasy and such were among the best as well…

    As for the theme song that will never leave me…

    The incredible return of DOOM.

    Yeah, that's probably my favorite track from all of FF. (The Black Mages version)

    Personally I think EQ2's main theme doesn't get enough attention. Probably because all the EQ1 fanboys seem to prefer the original. But EQ2's symphonic version is really amazing imo.

    Lost Oddysey had a lot of great tracks (Battle Theme; Boss Battle)

    WOW's music overall is hit and miss, but the good tracks are great. (Burning Crusade Theme)

    WOW, Ashenvale music: Song of Elune


  • SwaneaSwanea Member UncommonPosts: 2,401

    I will say outside of teldrassil, and the opening music from the first cgi movie, until WotLK the music in wow was terrible.

    The WotLK Music was completely different, and sounded wonderful.


    AoC music, which I have the CD of, was wonderful.  I really love that sort of music. 

    I did sure enjoy the music from KotORs also.  It sounded Star Warsy, yet was unique at many points.

    Guild wars has always been wonderful music. Mr. Soule is extremely good at creating music.


    I am sure there are others, but everyone enjoys a different type of music more than another.

    You're not kidding. The first time I took a few steps out into Conall's Valley and that music started, I thought I was in love with the game. If I wasn't so forced to so frequently leave Cimmeria, I'd still be playing, and Conall's Valley trumps it all.'sValley.mp4

    If everything hit that perfect intersection of ambience and design....

    Guild Wars and World of Warcraft take my vote. The Guild Wars opening themes for the 3 campaigns + expansion = memorable. World of Warcraft has nice enviromental music just to relax to.

     Not sure if anyone has said this but FFX-Otherworld is awsome best ingame song iv ever heard and i even have it on my playlist sorry i cant post a vid


  • klinikaklinika Member Posts: 17

    Hands down Paul Ruskay's music for the first Homeworld, all of it.

  • muzzingtonmuzzington Member Posts: 12

    I think I'll always remember the theme to Monkey Island. I also remember loving the music to Warcraft 2, whenever it was, even the briefing page. I think I most remember the music from when I was younger, since I was just playing the game and didn't have MP3's all over the place or a TV close by.

    Oh dear, I recall making a version of the Monkey Island theme with Noise- or ProTracker on Amiga :D That song was mind-bogglingly good!

    There is lots of great music out there. I love the Ashenvale music in WoW, and although i don't play WoW anymore, it's the music that makes me sad that i left!

    My favourite song though has to be 'Still Alive' at the end of Portal. It was a unexpected treat for completing such a wonderful game:

    I have "Still Alive" on my Ipod. Beautiful song, it is.

    It's too bad Valve decided to become enemies with the PS3. Now, unless they come out with a sequel to Portal, I won't buy or even look at anything Valve related, as should any Sony fanboy worth his/her marbles.

    This trailer got me worked up for the good vs evil theme back in the day, but then I found there was no PVP in the game and the game itself was way too restricted so I dumbed it fast.

    But the trailer was inspiring even the music.

    I really like some of the songs in EVE, don't remember the names tho, but really nicely music that fits well to the theme.

    Age of Conan had some nice scores.

    WoW had some nice scores.

    Kara no Kyoukai movies has great music done by a group called Kalafina.

    Kalafina - Oblivious


    I know its not music from a game. But we shouldn't be bound by that.  If a movie or game or any other form of media has something amazing.  why not share it.
