Do We look At Video Game Soundtracks As A Whole Or As Background Noise? Part 4 (GamerLive.TV)

Timothy Michael Wynn has scored music in the video game industry since 2005. He has worked on known game franchises like Command & Conquer, Warhawk and Red Fraction. You might have heard his work on CW’s Supernatural. His best work was in Warhawk as gave its vibrant atmosphere that suit it’s military theme. It’s Wynn’s behind the scenes work that helped make the game stand out from the rest, but do fans notice? Do people look at soundtracks as a whole or as background noise? (Command & Conquer 4, E3, PC, PS3, Warhawk, Xbox 360)

They may only get appreciation from a small group of gamers, but their importance is imperative. They can save a game, make a great game epic or leave good game feeling undone. While I have never personally listened to soundtracks on their own, I know the soundtracks of my favorite games very well and often hear it it my sleep or throughout the day. It's similar to the nostalgic feeling that songs conjure up years later. If I hear a track I spent countless hours of my life listening to, I am immediately transported back to that time.

Some games have good music but others i can care less for.

It really depends. Much of it is just there to enhance the scene, slow for sad, fast for excitment, whatever, and you never really get to hear it. But the truly memorable songs really do something for a game. The Halo theme is very recognizable, and the song that's playing as you go into into Mexico in RDR works wonderfully.
