    Anarchy Online. It's 16 years old but to me still reigns as best music.

    zone "Seascape"




    Omg, memories. I loved noob island AO for the music and atmosphere and the leet remarks from the animals there lol.

    I have to go with FFXI as well. I still love the Rolanberry Fields Theme:
    nNo doubt about it!!

    Age of Conan by far, IMO. I really liked a few tracks from EQ2 (they used a real orchestra), but AoC's soundtrack was on a completely different level.

    Music is the one area that the older games can compete with more modern offerings.  Compared to the advances in graphics processors, music is relatively unchanged.  Music is a simple enhancement to games -- if developers put in the little effort, the game gets a lot of benefits.

    I did like the music in EQ1 and EQ2, with LotRO and SW:TOR in the mix as well.  Music was the only positive thing from the loading screens in games like EQ1.  Sadly, I don't recall any of the music from superhero games like CoH or CO.  A selection of memorable heroic themes would have been a great addition to the genre.

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

    Cabal Online is by far the best one when it comes to music for me. I love every single ost in this game.

    My instinct was to say Jumpgate but then I remembered I had just inserted my favorite songs into the music folder.

    I think I have to go with SWG. It's hard to beat John Williams.

    TBH the old Runescape MIDI tracks. They made absolute art with a limited sound tool

    This post is all my opinion, but I welcome debate on anything i have put, however, personal slander / name calling belongs in game where of course you're welcome to call me names im often found lounging about in EvE online.

    When you're in the beta of a game, test some human character, and then you first enter the local major town in a game, and you get this...



    That one isn't bad either:

    I turn off music. I'm more interested in hearing the sounds of the environment in a game. Far more interesting to me.

    His opinion. Whats the problem? Is it because he didn't say IMO or something? Also your right about Metallica. :)

    My all time top 5 MMORPG soundtracks (subject to change):

    #1 Star Wars Galaxies ... it's John "freakin" Williams
    #2 Elder Scrolls Online ... the lute music is amazing
    #4 Final Fantasy XIV ... Nobuo Uematsu
    #5 World of Warcraft ... despite what people say about WoW, it earned a spot in the top 5.

    Yess I will always remember Lineage 2 Themes, FFXI, and World OF Warcraft, FFXIV Music was meh I miss the gaming days like FFXI was great FFXIV is pure garbage in my eyes because of housing and poor glamour system thats highly out of date for its development...

    Elwynn forest still brings tears to my eyes. It just takes me back to the times when WoW launched and I started it up for the first time. What an experience that was.

    Same here, I only wanted to here sounds of skill casting sword shattering and the voice of NPC's

    When it comes to music in MMOs, it's clear a lot of games did an exceptional job. I think it would be a better question to ask, which MMO have you played that you couldn't stand the background music.
