Default Game Music

Now I'm not talking about the music for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 100000 or Burnout: Scottish Highlands Expansion where the soundtrack is a collection of songs from existing artists.

I'm talking about the original stuff that get put in video games: Jesper Kyd, Frank Klepacki, the soundtracks for Morrowind and Oblivion. They were great mood setters, the last two even adapted the music depending on if you were exploring, being attacked by monsters, or just drinking in the virtual landscape. These are things that don't just fall into the category of original soundtrack because unlike a film, a game has many variations at each stage. It puts you in the mindset for it, it shapes the way you play, the energy you impart to it.

Who here agrees?

Yeah, music is a very important part of the gaming experience for me. I often find myself playing the same stages over and over just to hear the music.

Kōji Kondō is the 8 bit Mozart.

I still to this day listen to something and think, "oh, that reminds me of Legend of Zelda!".
Oddly enough I usually wind up loving music that reminds me of videogames.
So yeah, I love most video game music.

Music is critical to some games though I often find myself listening to my own music in the background.

Nevertheless, check out my Michael Hoenig thread. His BG1/2 soundtracks were fantastic.
