    Best... would have to be EVE.  Sadly, it's what I looked forward to most when I logged on. 
    WoW ... I like it.. but it just feels like it was ripped off from Braveheart/Gladiator.  Have James Horner and Hans Zimmer been working together recently? image
    And it sounds like a lot of people like the music from Lineage 2.  If anyone can post a link for that, i'd appreciate it.  The Dark and Light music was pretty cool.. thanks for the link!

    most of L2's music is done by Bill Brown, a leading Hollywood composer...

    these are some of the tracks he did for L2...

    Can't even remember the music from L2 ... but Eve-Online was the best for me, I think I played that game just for the music alone.

    Typical of an EQ clone, ripping off something else is not surprising.

    I would definitely side with Eve Online's music. It sets the mood like no other for me, way cool stuff :P

    Rubies of Eventide Have pretty nice music. Thats the only one that sticks out in my memory. cept for the music in an upcomming game....

  • josjikawajosjikawa Member Posts: 209

    hmm hard too say but ill try...

     

    1. maybe Eve online.. it gets bored after the 10th time but still i liked the music.

    2. Endlessages.. the music is perfect made for that kinda genre of game so maybe this should be on1 

    3. planetside.. dunno why but i like the music at some places in game.

     

    i know this is a weird top3, it could change annytime cause every new game i play comes with new cool music so :) and btw WoW would come for me between 1 and 2. not on 1 because yes they got good music but every place i walk trough the music have to change which i dont like..

    1. Eve Online. Really nice music in that game.

    2. Planetside. For some reason, whenever I hear the Planetside music after not playing for a few months, I get all emotional. ::::02::

    3. EnB, but thats gone

    World of Warcraft does by far........I am playing in the final stress test right now and I get non stop awesome dramatic music that sends chills down my spine (literally).

    Trust what I say about that.

    1. EVE - best ingame music by far
    2. AO - cool ambient and combat music

    I haven't played all mmorpg's, but every major one. I think the background sound in Anarchy Online is great , it really fits into the post-apocalyptic world.

    Horizons absolutely has the best 'athmospheric' music around. Only MMORPG thusfar I didn't put the music off.

    I have had the pleaser of listening to a few tracks from Tabula Rasa, but the only place that has some of the music posted is a stratics page.

    Here is a link:
    Tabula Rasa Music

    One important note though before you listen to the tracks, the only ones posted on that site that are actually in game are the first two tracks, the rest were inspired by the game. My favorite is Sanctuary.
