I love the WvW theme tune. And it's great running about hearing the GW1 tracks as well. They make it feel like Guild Wars.

Music in MMO is not meant to be very memorable. It's supposed to be part of atmosphere/experience. There are tons of very catchy songs in jRPGs as people mentioned... but note that you don't play those RPGs for years... If music in MMO was more than something nice in the background, it could become pretty annoying quickly and after that you turn on your winamp. This was typical in WoW... You couldn't listen to dungeon music for very long (not mentioning it was arguably very bad).

That being said, I like GW2 music very much. It may not be the best epic music, but it just fits the world perfectly for me.

Befroe I first logged in, I had heard some saying the music was "amazing". When I did log in I was underwhelmed, even irratated by the music for a few days. After about a week I really started to dig it. By the time I left, I felt that it was ok.

Though there is only one track played in Guild Wars 2 that is legitimately not forgettable to me.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxa7n1mXVMs

Guess what. It's a Guild Wars track that hasn't been altered in any way that is played in Guild Wars 2. This track was memorable in Guild Wars 1 and it is still memorable in Guild Wars 2. This track is creative and beautiful. The new tracks in Guild Wars 2 lack such a soothing and atmospheric melody this track has. If it wasn't for this one track, I would have muted Guild Wars 2 music a long time ago.

Couldn't disagree more.  I still have this tune on my playlist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAwkcNSK5tc of this tune occur at epic moments in the personal story, which really add to the experience.  

Music tastes are matters of opinion, and my opinion is that GW2 music is very well done.

 I like the music very much, a few examples:

There are some bad things in GW2, but why is there at least one new thread every day on this forums, that critizises this game in a very unjustified way? Bad graphics, antisocial, no pvp, pay to win, boring combat and now bad music. It is rediculous.

Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need.

While I believe the GW2 music is good, I will agree its not the most memorable. That has to definately go to Everquest. I wish I could find my old collectors edition cd soundtrack for EQ2 which is great but EQ1 still is the best.

GW2 has the same composer as GW1 - hence there is a link between the music. Jeremy Soule is the composer and has done the music for: GW1, GW2, Icewind Dale: Heart of WInter, and many many others - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Soule

 

I find the music wonderful and nice that in certain areas it hearkens back to GW1.

What is "real"? How do you define "real"?

11/01/12 8:09:19 AM#29

I have the music volume set to about half, or less, of what the other game volumes are.  It makes for good filler, but I don't really pay much attention to it.

 

Pretty much the same for me with any game.

You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

Again, op ? we doing this again, its not even been 2 months, and after having your point totally anihilated in the previous thread you post exactly the same one ?, do you have a personal vendetta against Guild Wars 2 or Jeremy Soule  ?

 

As for a direct answer, again NO, you are wrong, GW2 music is better than 99% of all other game music, why ? because its Jeremy Soule who composed it, end of story, ...

 

When it needs to be forgettable it is, when it doesn't it isn't, your music tastes are yours, leave the rest of the world to enjoy their own music tastes please.

Ya I thought this was that other older thread. I added him to my block list. He's kinda odd redoing the same thread again. And. Yes Mr. Soule's backgournd music is very backgroundy. But the main themes are quality.

AoC and LOTRO both come to mind immediately for me.  Might be others if I give it more thought..

Haven't played LOTRO - but yes - the Age of Conan music is a triumph and very gripping no matter how many times you hear it.

Why necro a dead thread?

The difference is that was before Guild Wars 2 was out and this is now after Guild Wars 2 is out. After every one has experienced the game with out the new game smell to hinder their opinions. Having a chance to play the game with the music going instead of sitting down and listening to it by itself.

Also if I did have a vendetta against Jeremy Soule. Why do I enjoy his work on the Guild Wars 1 track that was included in Guild Wars 2 and not his new Guild Wars 2 stuff? Your conclusion jumping is lacking in the logic department.

WoW had some really good and memorable tracks like:


Elwynn Forest (Cataclysm version)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7p-hqRz7cw

and
Stormwind (Pre-Cataclysm version)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rXIyz8HSJQ


The way they are arranged. There is no forgetting them. It is isn't generic. It has a distinct theme that nearly any one can recognize.

I agree that GW1 had a better soundtrack than GW2. But there were some gems, including the character select screen music and the end game song - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOMQxVtbkik

They could probably up the tempo in the towns for sure.

Have to say I don't really pay much attention to music in MMOs. I usually have my Windows Media Player going and the music turned off. The only game I remember much music from was EverQueset. Mostly the loading screen when first logging in which was pretty damn good I thought. The best I've heard though, maybe not for quality but for other reasons, was the Kelethin music. I swear there is not a better sound than hearing that come on when you're lost wandering around Greater Faydark.

Played: EQ1 (10 Years), Guild Wars, Rift, TERA
Tried: EQ2, Vanguard, Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online, Runes of Magic and countless others...
Currently Playing: GW2

GW2 music is kind of hu-hum.  I am sitting here trying to think of one song, and I can't.  I even leave the music on while I play ..

 

I guess the GW2 music composers knew how to arrange notes in a way not to sound sour, they are "booksmart".  But the music completely lacks memorable and/or compassionate themes that might stimulate emotions and leave a lasting memory.

 

Maybe it's just me.  As for recent releases, SWTOR has far superior music (game is meh tho) compared to GW2.  Jazzy, futuristic, classical, .. not the music everyone knows the movies either .. the new stuff.

 

WoW has amazing music as well.  Powerful fantasy themes.
