Yeah, nothing can beat a Star Wars piece.
I love the GW2 Metrica themesong.
It reminds me a little of one of my favorite movies, Quiqley Down Under: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAYb30J_UOI&feature=related
Overall: Age of Conan, from intro to end of the last raid all the music is great.
Helene Bøksle has the voice of an angel!
Best song in an MMO: FFXI battle music, Final fantasy has always had some of the best music when it comes to enter battles.
The tempo and stuff just makes it so epic. It just left you wanted to get that hit in, which in FFXI combat was slow, the way I like it.
Originally posted by lovefist I'd probably go for Age of Conan, you can't fault the soundtrack in that game. I like the music in Eve Online as well.
Those are the two I'd pick, and I wouldn't want to choose which was better. They're both excellent.
Overall sound I would say TSW beats most of those.
For music one must add Lotro as well especially in the new expansion coming out.
Swtor music likely takes the cake simply because of the sheer amount of music from movies and all video games up until it's release.
You stay sassy!
As an overall type thing? World of Warcraft for me. Especially the Karazhan dining room and theatre music.
After WoW it would be Jeremy Soule for GW2.
Playing: FFXIV, DnL, and World of WarshipsWaiting on: Ashes of Creation
If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.
Originally posted by ShakyMo Poll is stupid because it doesn't have tsw in it, that's got everything from hard metal to orchestral stuff to K pop to ambient house
That and ambiance is why I mentioned it had best overall sound. In fact it beats most mmo's by a long mile. Very few games have had me just stand around and soak in the atmosphere with combination of graphics and sound. Back in the day I did the same with Lotro mainly because it's landscapes were quite spectacular (and not so bad today despite it's age).
For music, i'd have to say WoW and AION. Despite me disliking WoW, i always gave Blizzard credit for making such amazing music.
Grizzly Hills: The atmosphere it created when i first played Wrath was quite amazing.
Storm Peaks: After 0:30, the choir made it for me. So serene.
Arathi Highlands: After about 0:30 created another great atmosphere, it fits almost perfectly with the Highlands.
Grim Batol: Just listen to it, it's just beautiful.
Night Elves: 1:20 beyond... need i say more.
Elwynn Forest: Just the revamp and reorchestrated music of this place left me awestruck when i heard it. It surprised me.
For me: Age of conan is the best and then EVE probably.
I also like the Anarchy Online music, but that is more because i have lots of fond memories from it.
Sadly, Anders Brevik also liked the AoC music and has used it in his propaganda video.
2. EVE Online
3. Guild Wars 2
I would put Age of Conan at the top. All the Funcom MMOs have great soundtracks - AoC, Anarchy Online and TSW.
Anarchy Online - Seascape http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBqYdCGaNEw
TSW - Siren's Song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGVsvRAH1gM&feature=related
Honourable mention to Vanguard, Eve and LOTRO
LOTRO - Red Stones and Golden Leaves http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pc9_zsk-dFc
You missed LOTRO (this one is classic):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3dPApPyIGs&feature=related
And the new Riders of Rohan expansion music (by Chance Thomas) is great:http://massively.joystiq.com/2012/06/22/lotro-releases-first-track-of-riders-of-rohans-score/
But if I had to vote for only one, it would probably be WoW; either Storm Peakshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6I2muPfUdOQ or Grizzly Hills http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IV1ekaMKyc.
Both are amazing.
No game matches the awesomeness that is listening to Caldari Rock as you pull into an asteroid belt, about to destroy a bunch of pirate ships.
Ok, I lied. Minmatar Rock comes close:
