Awesome game music Part II

Saturday, 1 October 2011



Here's the second part of game music I think is awesome. Check part I here. I have some musical background myself as I've played electric guitar for my own fun quite long and have tried to learn few composing apps on PC. I'm kind of a sunday musician.. but i'd love to compose some computer music one day :-P. Anyways let's keep it short and have a few beers while listening this great stuff. Great game music (at least in my opinion) that majority of nowadays games just cannot match.. I don't know whats the problem. Too much repetivive pompous orchestrated stuff that just repeats itself - for example Might And Magic VI is good orchestrated while Oblivion in my books is not really. Weirdly enough composer Jeremy Soule succeeded to make Morrowind soundtrack with some quite memorable moments while in my opinion Oblivions soundtrack lacked soul and all the mysterious feeling to it.
