RPGSite - Zack's Top 9 RPG Tunes of All Time

Snippet: For most of these songs, they may not stand up so much on their own, but within context (like with a lot of theme music in general) they do help compliment some of the most shocking and emotional moments in RPG history. Of course, there are also video games out there where their only real redeeming quality is their soundtrack.

With this list, however, I hope to convince some of you out there to go back and give these titles a try. If you would like to listen to them, I have a provided a link to a Youtube page in the title of the song. So without further ado, here is my list of the Top 9 RPG spoiler-free songs of the decade!

Funny how the end up all being Japanese ones.

Short of recent efforts from Mass Effect, Oblivion etc music wasn't the WRPG's strong point and never has been. Gameplay, though... depth... that's more of a fight.

Karuto4916d ago

If it makes you feel any better, just outside the list was Diablo 2's "Tristram Village".

Planescape - Torment - Deionarra's Theme

Sidology4916d ago

I wasn't even close to being surprised by anything on this list. Which just means it's a pretty good list. :3

I thought Sephiroth's theme was pretty balls awesome.

And the bass line from FF2...as evidenced in Scott Pilgrim vs The World.

No mention of fixing the audio issues the dialogue audio is too low this has been reported many times on social media the volume has to be turned up and music has to be lowered to hear the characters properly :(

Babadook741d ago

I have a question as someone who is considering buying the game soon. Is this a fixable issue? Can you just lower the volume for music and sound effects and keep dialog at default?

shadowT41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

yes, it is no issue at all. Just go into settings. Do you have already played the first Remake or the OG?

M3talDiamond41d ago

There are a few youtube videos and reddit tips with some tips on fixing the sound issues but sadly they didnt work for me

@Babadook7 There are a few videos on youtube with tips on how to fix the dialogue audio this but sadly they didnt work for me. There is an option to lower the music and sfx and keep the dialogue audio at 10 but you have to keep the volume up high (well for my TV I do) but when you are in battles and cutscenes the audio is higher so you have to adjust the audio again.
@shadowT The audio issues doesnt affect everyone there are some people on reddit complaining about the audio and there are other people saying they dont have any issues at all. I think it depends on the TV I have a Samsung QLED 4K and FF7 Rebirth is the only game I have audio issues with.

Babadook741d ago (Edited 41d ago )

Thanks for the answers all.

@Shadow yeah I have the Remake and finished it and loved it (loved the OG also back in the day). My understanding is this is even better than Remake.

The way it was handled was so dumb. One shots in melee...your teammates are to ostupid to get away from its attack. So you most often end up alone in a certain fight.

Two words, one accessory....Safety Bit

MeteorPanda72d ago

Needing an accessory to keep a.i from dying and only one of them isnt great.

gold_drake72d ago

absolutely haha
