disasterpeace and health have always been great too

music is essentially silly

No because vidya composers are failed composers who couldn't land a job in film or modern classical orchestras

Jeremy Soule writes very well developed and coherent music.

mediocre

Literally just a complete hack who happened to be in the right place at the right time. His music is iconic in relation to the actual games themselves, on its own no one would give a shit about it.
>>
NeoTokyo, I guess.

There is literally no difference between writing scores for games, movies or just writing because you love music. There is probably music in video games that surpasses the best composers.
>>
The Silent Hill games have amazing soundtracks

lol if i wantd to listen to final fantasy i'd listen to fucking final fantasy.

darren korb sounds completely different and actually has a distinct sound, whereas all the FF soundtracks generally sound the exact same.

Though mostly it's just:

I can't, because I don't play many games. What I said first is my main point, regardless of whether I'm right about my second statement.
>>51928841
True.

I do, but from my experience most of /mu/ doesn't because they're too pretentious. If you're into 8bit and 16bit music you should check out the podcast Legacy Music Hour.

Sure, there's good, interesting, and even experimental VGM, it's just exceedingly rare. Especially around the SNES era due to the timbrel restrictions the soundchips had, a lot of great compositions have been made for vidya that otherwise never could have been created.

But on that note, I fucking hate music that tries to replicate VGM like chiptunes, as well as people who think they're cultured because they listen to vaguely orchestral video game music.
>>
I don't even know why people get defensive about soundtrack music.
It's music.
/mu/ also loves non-musical things like bandcamp-tier noise projects and field recordings that take very little effort to make.

At least video game soundtracks require some modicum of effort, especially with older games.

It's not real music.

Go back to your super mario bros soundtrack and claim that it's better than everything else because you have no taste.
