but As I sit here working at my PC and listening to Tome Raider COF music blasting it accured to me how importent music is in a game.
SC had a great opening and the music was the best. PT's opening realy sucks. NO music NO anything. Most of the games I play have good to great music. How do you feel about the music in games?

Like in Deus Ex, the music was awesome, and added the game real bladerunner-like feeling!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif
So the good music is very very IMPORTANT!!!
When the music is good, it makes the game more enjoyable! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

If you don't notice the music then its good. The music really conveys a feel of whats happening ingame, whether you realize it or not it influences your mind. As in mp after an ND133 is neutralized the music speeds up and makes you more frantic to get the adrenaline flowing through your veins so you get away faster.

I agree. And not only music. Voices, efects, everything but only in SP. In MP all sounds are very good.

That is truly scary, halo

The music in a game is very important. The Max Payne games are good for this (especially Max Payne 2 - And we keep driving, Into the night, It's a late goodbye, It's a late goobye)

Hi Axman

This is why I try to rip most game music. Most is good, some are lame, but between Deus Ex, MOHAA and Unreal not sure which I like best.

i like the music of SC1 and StarTrek: Bridge Commander. Especially the last was THE music - how it changed depending on what are you doing, or if the enemies started attacking...

Lambert: Holly Christ, Sam, what are you doing in stavpal's yard?
Sam: oh, i thought this was the place they had hidden the NNDX-1335.
Lambert: get out of there! Next time I'm putting you up for psych evaluation.

The Last Express has fantastic music (You're thinking what the hell is the Last Express aren't you?).And so does Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. Call of Duty has some really good music too but it only starts playing at the game's most cinematic moments.

Well i agree that musique is mostly important for the atmosphere trhat is created in the game, BUT

a good game functiones without the music. like morrowind, the music is superb, really beutifull, but i turned music volume tozero for the max 'realistic' experience.

I didn't seem to have noticed that SP:PT's music sucked, i think that's a good point !!!?

yeah it creates the atmosphere..... if you didnt have music, you would be storming normandy in scilence. you also need the right music, you dont want a britney spears song playing while your sneeking past a gaurd, otherwise it would ruin the atmosphere and effect of the moment.

Music in games, just like music in movies, is extremely important for setting the mood and the atmosphere. I've got the soundtrack for Deus Ex (came with the GOTY edition); I pulled the .mp3s out of the .pk3 files on MOHAA and converted to audio CD format, and burned them; and the old game Outlaws came with all the game music in CD audio format on the discs. All are great.

I just wish some of the other game makers would make it easy to play their music. But that would be too easy.

nothing realy, im saying that it would ruin the stealthy-ness.
also the music for games have to repeat over and over again, unlike a movie where the scene would be over in ten minutes with a ten min. music reel, the one thing is, the game music cant be annoying otherwise it makes the game SUCK!!!
