Sure! (twenty character minimum)

I for one am going to wait until @WerqKween has reached #1 and then I’ll point out everything he’s missed :wink:

Red Dead Redemption. I’m a fan of Western tunes in general and having played through it at least 5 times, I’ve had plenty of time to hear it all. It’s one of the few soundtracks I catch myself humming on random occasions.

I’ve never played it.

I know we’re still in early days, but it look longer than I thought it would to get to Final Fantasy. Oh but believe you me, more is coming. :slight_smile:

Just to clarify any weirdness, since you didn’t post after, what I meant by 20 character minimum was me hitting that to get the post to work.

Lanota and Cytus have an amazing music!

I love the OG starcraft sound track and the Elderscrolls III morrowind sound track. Not sure if it’s some nostalgia, but I find myself pulling those up on spotify every so often.

If you look up the morrowind one, make sure it isn’t the elderscrolls online morrowind.


Morrowind part 1

I’m not familiar, are these games?

See, I never had a computer until I was in high school and even then it wasn’t a good one. I’ve had a MacBook the last 13 years, so I’ve missed the entirety of PC gaming. I’ll check these out!

Lanota and cytus are musical games that include genres such as pop , trance, drum and bass, etc. The music is composed and performed by independent composers and artists from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and the United States. in addition, they both have quite a deep story that is represented by the songs. You can play them on iOS, Android, PS Vita or Nintendo Switch

No Doom music. DISSAPOINTED! Jk, RPG game music is really nice though.

The list isn’t done yet, you never know! :wink:

You absolutely must take some sort of look at the original The World Ends With You, originally on DS and now on Switch. The music in that game made me an appreciator of music when I was Teen, it’s so varied and made to feel like you’re taking a walk down the street and hearing various different types of music that you don’t quite recognize or hear the words to.

I will also say that @BrayanOckel 's suggestion of Cytus is worth looking into. Probably my favorite mobile game of all time because of that.


Here is a current favorite of mine, both the music and the game. The menu music is especially nice.

@peter or @BMO am I not able to edit posts after a certain amount of time passes?

What happens when you try?

It just shows my edit history, but nothing to make more edits.
