I thought to open this so we can suggest and comment game musics (any game is ok)

My suggestion is.. Age of Empires osts.
Its an RTS game made by Ensember Studio, under Microsoft.

Microsoft stupidly closed Ensemble Studios around 2011 but around 2-3 years now some developers that liked it made a mod and ended up later on co-operating with MS for HD vers and expansions for the old games and now they announced a 4k remaster of the very first game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyPlECHiXcM&feature=youtu.be

I've been listening to a lot of game music recently, coincidentally XD

What I've been listening to is mainly from Xenoblade Chronicles (composer: ACE+; for Wii and New 3DS) or Bravely Default (composer: Revo; for 3DS)

Favorites from Xenoblade Chronicles:
Engage the Enemy
Colony 6 (Future)
Bionis' Leg (aka Gaur Plains)
You Will Know Our Names

Favorites from Bravely Default:
That Person's Name Is... (aka He of the Name)
You Are My Hope
Baby Bird
The Immortal Country (Eternia Theme)
The Beginning Country (Caldisla Theme)
Infiltrating Enemy Territory (Dungeon Theme 1)

I have listened to both soundtracks and the bravely default one is love, and Yoko Shimomura is on par with Kajiura for me if not better sometimes

Game OST's are probably the third most common thing in my music library, behind J-pop/rock and a vast slew of metal subgenres, so this is a good thread.

Currently playing Persona 5 and reminded that Shoji Meguro is a god amongst mankind. Legit one of the best composers in the world right now, really hope that P5's success makes them consider bringing the Persona Live Music events worldwide like they've done with some other (albeit far more popular) franchises. I'd pay a ton to attend one.

I think that as well, but most game soundtracks by anime composers (inc. Kajiura) I've seen have been subpar. Xenoblade Chronicles X is a perfect example: though Sawano Hiroyuki is one of my favorite anime composers, the soundtrack for that game was mediocre at best. Though there were a few good songs, like Uncontrollable (Tyrant theme) and 46-:ri9 (Sylvalum Night), most songs were really repetitive and bland. It didn't help that he made the loops for the songs way too short (~2.5-3 min) in a game where you could be in the same area for 15+ min (yeah it would change between night/day but it's still 12 min for each night or day)

Persona 5 also. Those three are unparalleled so far though.

EDIT: Actually Gravity Rush 2 had a great OST too.

BOTW had a pretty good soundtrack as well; it just rarely played during the actual game.

Super Mario Odyssey is also shaping up to be very good too.

The soundtrack rarely playing I thought really fit the game though, cause it added an element of calmness. Plus if you were in one place for 30 min you'd get sick of one song looping

Oh I agree. I really appreciated the game’s sound design, but I never really noticed how much good music there is in the soundtrack until I listened to it standalone.

No i chose asia server because i dont know anyone else in Europe that plays it 🤭 so we can play together but not for long, i played for hours the first 3 days and have neck pain now.😥 Only played like 30 mins today. Im Adventurer Level 23.

Actually its not my first time playing gatcha i was playing Yugioh duel links for about a year few years ago. Lost interest aftet they moved past the first arc. And i had tried FGO too but got bored fast. Genshin is so much better though.

But im still confused about the elemental reactions and the artifacts 😅google didnt really help either.
