RE: Video Game Music -- youtube videos welcome!
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (one of the best game's I've ever played)

Jeremy Soule at his absolute best on display here. A little tidbit, he had a very serious car accident while in the middle of composing this. He said it changed his perspective I believe.

The title screen (Reign of Septims) gives me serious goose bumps and an emotional response. For it and some of the other pieces of music I almost tear up in some moments of a couple other songs, I just love this game and its soundtrack--more than Skyrim which is saying a lot. The nostalgia is huge with this game.

RE: Video Game Music -- youtube videos welcome!
Jeremy Soule's music definitely sound epic. Those songs remind me of movies like Conan the Barbarian (the original, the new one stunk badly) and Conan the Destroyer. I just love music that sets the tone for "high adventure" (a nod to the narrator in Conan movies). Hehe. I still need to give the Elder Scrolls series a chance just to see why people love it so much.

I do like Oblivion's soundtrack a little bit better than Skyrim. I guess it just gives me more of an emotional impact (exciting, epic, adventurous), similar to movie soundtracks by John Williams. I can never get over the original Superman and Star Wars music no matter how many times I watch them.

You should start with Oblivion and play the DLCs. I promise it is worth it even if the game is 10 years old... Nothing beats a trek out in the wilderness at night with a clear sky and the stars in Oblivion. And maybe Skyrim too, but Oblivion had more of an impact. Ranged / Stealth characters are really fun to play in either of these so I recommend those as I'm sure Lotex will as well. ;)

Agreed. On both. Oblivion's soundtrack while shorter seems to be a bit higher quality and also seems to give more of an emotional response. Skyrim's is good but some of it doesn't give me that same feeling.

Fun fact, I have all of the overworld, town, and dungeon music in 1 MP3 for each Oblivion and Skyrim that I play at night for my wife and I to fall asleep to. I'll upload them if anyone is interested. I need to do Fallout 4 as well...

You bet I will! Although I have to warn you, while they're really fun to play they're also pretty broken in terms of: You shoot someone in the ass and they're like "Must've been the wind" and then they go back to what they were doing before.
Oh and definitely play Oblivion before Skyrim because the latter is easier to handle (lockpicking and such stuff) and if you do it the other way round it's a little bit like
"Man, this is incommodious"

That sounds familiar, although it's not music that I listen to Grin
I'd be interested though.

LOL. It's the same in the Dark Souls series. I shoot arrows at enemies, and they start wandering around and then go back to staring at the wall. :P It really depends how far away you are. If you're a little close, they will chase you down. I'm sure it's similar in Elder Scrolls. But sure, I'll use a range character in Oblivion and Skyrim.

Speaking of which, I started listening to music by Eric Heberling who composed for Elder Scrolls Arena and Daggerfall. Arena was okay, but man Daggerfall has an amazing soundtrack. If you guys haven't done so, you need to check it out below. I also listened to Morrowind (also by Jeremy Soule), and it was very good as well. Sounds on par with Oblivion in my opinion.


The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall:






















The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind:

Kind of, but not exactly. It also depends on their level, if you're beside a torch/in plain sight or if you're in the shadows, if you wear chameleon gear and your sneak skill. It's still fun though, you can always ramp up the difficulty and it also feels good to master legendary :cool:

I'm just going to leave this here.

Final Fantasy IV: Within the Giant

I don’t know what it is about this song in particular but man it gives me serious goosebumps and fuzzy emotional responses every time I hear it. Reminds me of my happy childhood and of my best mate Tim who you all know as ttruelove.

After listening to that song, I immediately envisioned the archetype called Hero's Journey. It's a template for the thousands upon thousands of stories in all forms of media present in our books, storytellers, tales, poems, plays, music, paintings, movies, tv shows, and even video games. But most importantly, our own Hero's Journey we call life.

Oh, it's a nice song too, JC. LOL. Grin

Thanks Phil. You should check out more of Jeremy Soule's compositions, he is a very underrated composer. I'd put him up there with Nobuo, Kenji, Yoko, Yasunori, and etc. Oh and FYI, he also did Secret of Evermore. Fun fact! For me personally he's right behind Nobuo.

I forgot about this video I had watched about 9 years ago. Really good talent right here. I can usually assess someone's musical talent with not just their ability to produce but what their feet do. And in this case her left leg/foot is highly active.
