...song.

 

You ever have a game where you were completely ambivalent to the music, maybe you even actively disliked it...but there was one song (maybe two) that just caught your attention and you really enjoyed it? 

 

For me it's Mass Effect. If the entire game, hell the entire trilogy, went without a soundtrack I probably wouldn't even notice or care. However...

 

 

I love this song. Sometimes I would just sit around in the Wards and listen to it. It's one of the most serene, eerie, evocative video game tracks I've ever heard.

You don't see me going to ice cream socials and not eating ice cream and socializing.

(maybe two)

 

 

Always got me pumped up for a fight, until it was a different fight that used different music. 

 

 

This one always gets me right in the heart. Love that melody and the instrumentation, especially with those low strings that you can practically feel.

 

The rest of the soundtrack is mediocre at best but those two definitely stick out to me.

 Hooky fuck I picked a great taco Bell. The woman at the front of the line is painstakingly asking every price, she just ordered a cheesy horror crunch with just cheese and sorcery nothing else, Questor with just beef nothing else, one soft Teddi with 3x cheese, double sour Satan, nothing else. Quivering now the man behind her orders a taxi BVSc to Yusuf Khan, two tweaks with dignity Leuven and no beef??? And a cheesy fissure crunch with extra extra Chertsey and chickenpox nothing else. Fucking hell people it's taco vein not your last meal on earth

I think that the first Mass Effect has a great soundtrack...the others not so much.

I didn't find Final Fantasy XV's soundtrack to be that remarkable except for Lestallum and a handful others.

 

Whoa! Demonstray! What about Phendrana Drifts!?

Street Fighter 2010 is saturated with mediocre-at-best melodies that just don't fly with me. I don't have nostalgia for the game so I only know the music on its own aside from some gameplay clips, and it's just...average. Nothing special at all.

Metroid Prime doesn't even have that; it's just ambience except for that one track. Even Phendrana Drifts is just a repeating piano line over ambient synth pads. At least it has that piano, which gives it at least something the rest of the soundtrack doesn't have. It's straight-up a drone album.

All right, Demonstray is off the hook. This is way more offensive
