Tasteful or Tasteless: What is Your View of Music in Gaming?

Through much deliberation on my part, I have garnered enough courage to venture into the topic of music in gaming. No, not the blips and bloops common to titles that were surely part of your childhood…

great music can make a good game great.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution, MGS4, and Assassin's Creed 2's original soundtrack stand among the best this generation.

Mass effect gave me that Sci fi vibe and Space Exploration feel, ME2 and 3 completely ditched it for some reason.(albeit, the music in 3 is better, it just doesn't suit the universe as much imo, which is what ME1's music strives to do, so I suppose ME 1's is better in a way, it sets the mood as it should in a game while being less epic than 3)
More sci fi feel

Bad music can also make a good game okay. Music heightens the experience so much. What is Jet Set Radio without the soundtrack? Replace Uncharted's soundtrack with Justin Bieber and then come see.

A prime example of how music can give a game life is Journey. I had to buy the soundtrack after playing that game.

Woops! Sorry, I hit the "disagree button" by mistake! :(

I agree, Journey has a very inspired soundtrack.

I watched the first trailer at least 50 times with the volume almost to maximum :D

Music gives games the atmosphere. Back in the 1980's and 1990's game music was much much more memorable than today's.
There are however many games today with killer soundtracks that makes games even more epic than what goes on in the game(God of War for example). It definitely sets the mood or in some cases kills it.

They don't do it like they used to. You only have to look as far back as final fantasy 7, 8, 9 and 10 to realise that music used to make or break games. Now if the soundtrack doesn't appeal to me, I put on my mp3 player.
