Music from games make up a large part of my roleplaying theme music collection, and am always looking for more.
I still have a weakness for Final Fantasy music in particular, mostly from the sixth and seventh game. Of which Terra's Theme
probably is my all-time favourite. I still remember the first time I played it, stepping into the overworld and wondering why this
place had such nice music. Generally, I love all the opening piano pieces, and the final boss themes, to death.
Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne had a fairly eclectic
soundtrack that I personally much preferred to Persona's more J-pop inspired soundtrack.
Ar Tonelico can't go without a mention. The theme of the game itself is music. They have plenty of odd singing
, epic emotions
, upbeat travel music
and boss themes
Crimsonland has a total of like, 4 songs, but goddamn, I love it's hardcore riff
Metal Gear Solid is always good in a movie like manner
(theme comes in at 0:50), occasionally bordering to the James Bond-ish
Blizzard's music doesn't jump out to me much while playing the games, but when you sit down to listen to it, it's damn good
nobody wrote:But sometimes I prefer to mute the sound of the game and put on my own tracks that I think fit the mood better, do you people ever do it?
Once I've played the game for a while and have heard all of the music in it, multiple times, I switch on my own, mostly for the sake of variety. After a while, it's also good to hear some music that isn't cut off every time you open a menu or enter a random encounter.
