The Gaming Music Thread |OT| Music is the universal language of mankind

Often music is a severely underappreciated part of a game since people just focus on graphics and gameplay so I wanted to make a thread dedicated to it. I believe a soundtrack is just as important to a game as the other aspects since it can elevate a game to the next level.

Some of my fav pieces/compilations:

What are some of your favorite pieces in gaming music?

I constantly find myself going back to the OSTs of:

  • NieR: Automata
  • Ori (both)
  • Halo (all main line titles)
  • Gears (all, mainly 4 tho)

Nier has a sublime soundtrack.

This one just sets up exploring the ruined city amazingly.

And this one is just pure hype

I love Song of the Ancient because it’s actually from Nier Gestalt/Replicant and they changed it to the Automata theme.

Everything Xenoblade Chronicles

Fun fact the Xenoblade Chronicles X soundtrack is made by no other than the composer for attack on Titan

In my opinion nothing comes close to Xenoblade in regards to soundtrack it’s just…masterpiece

But there are soo many other games with spectacular soundtracks

@Opatschi Sawano one of the best composers of our time

This is my favorite piece of game music to date, you can really imagine a dragon’s wings flapping along with that percussion!
