The soundtrack of a game is incredibly important, and many games sport some epic soundtracks. But sometimes a game has that one song that completely transforms the game, either during a mission, or a certain cutscene.
So my question to you is, what has been the song or piece of music that made a game more epic? Either making you feel like a better badass in-game, tugging at your heartstrings, or filling you with a serene sense of wonder.
There are a few games and songs that stand out for me.
Firstly it will be the field burning mission in Far Cry 3. When Skrillex & Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley - Make It Bun Dem started playing, holy hell that was probably the best highlight of the game for me.
I also want to mention Civilization 4’s Baba Yeto by Christopher Tin. I think that game made me play more hours in the game that the actual gameplay.
Rage Against The Machine - Guerrilla Radio from THPS 2 was the first time I listened to Rage Against The Machine, and it was awesome! I would restart levels just to get that song playing, and I always got high scores on maps when it played.
The ost for heroes of might and magic 3 still has to be the best.
Painkillers was also up there.
Command and conquer red alert 1 and 2 and tiberian sun with firestorm.
Doom 1 and 2 and the recent dooms.
Unreal tournament 1 and 2004. Wow 2004 that was so long ago I feel old.
