Games affecting the music industry?

  I was watching VH1 rescently, and I noticed that artists are getting back into the classical instruments rather then the typical 5 piece band.  With Avril Lavigne using a chellow and piano, to new artists using acoustic guitars and pianos.  I'm actually kind of glad at the shift since I no longer have to hear singers trying to yell three words constantly into a microphone and call it music.  However, what element has effected this shift in music?

  In rescent years I have started to see people on youtube playing beautiful peices on the piano.  Not just any pieces though, they were playing game theme songs.  Has the music industry shifted its focus thanks to the impactful music from Final Fantasy?

[insert more research here]

  In any case my tastes in music have matured passed the constant noise of banging rythmically challenged on drums, and I welcome the better composed songs.

I'd have to see for myself.

As we know, the music industry is really being polluted with junk like rap which is basically a sole beat with swear words thrown in.

I like the aspect of classical/acustic instruments in modern songs, which coincidentally happens to accomodate in alot of video game music. It just sets a bettet tone for video games/MMOs. Fantasy usually invovles music that takes away from the ordinary and the current music bands are just so generic that they really need new content and thus, they turn to probably the second/third leading media industry: video games.

This happened with television too. Music first, then television, music got boring so they incorperated television into music. Same thing is happening again only this time they are incorperating videogames with music.

So in short: modern music really sucks.

I agree, but I wouldn't go as far as saying the current crop of *pop* music is inspired by games, I think the video producers, and record producers are using the gaming trend for something to latch onto to the current demographic, but it's still vapid, disposeable garbage.

To me most popular music is one big assembly line.  Once Fallout Boy for example sells a few million less records, they will already be primping the next substanceless pretty boy band, to be the next big thing.

Well, you should know that I totally agree whit that about Final Fantasy music afecting the bands, and Im also very glad, couse for some time I been hearing "The Black Mages" or  "Ost" playing Noebuo Uematsu compositions not only with drums or an electric guittar but with a chorus or an orchestra, an besaid I liked them or not (by the way I do like them)  They are prety good, and people doesn't know them as they'll diserve.
