Jeremy Soule is a talentless hack who can't write anything that isn't copied and pasted from his previous game music.

Let's discuss pic related, which is actually good.

Just in case you were too much of a pleb to own an N64 back in the golden age of console gaming, here's a taste of what quality game music sounds like.

Idk, don't get me wrong oblivion had a good soundtrack, but it was way more gentrified then the Morrowind soundtrack and didn't have the character of the Skyrim soundtrack with all the chanting. Still, maybe I'm just projecting because it's the worst game of the three.
>>
>>72322155
Show me Jeremy Soule tracks that are copy/pasted. You can't do it.
>>72322217
Morrowind's soundtrack didn't work as a soundtrack. It stands up outside of the game but its way too active for an open world soundtrack. You'd get a rhythmic anthem when you're walking on a road.

Oblivion's was top notch composition that fit stylistically and with the gameplay.

Civilization V has some really good picks of classical stuff, often gets overlooked.

Souls games kind of get a little repetitive but there are a few highlights where the music is softer for the context (Sif, Vendrick, Gwyn)

Grim Fandango deserves an obvious shout for music that perfectly matches the style and tone and is for the most part quite memorable (notably during the Rubacava quarter)

Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 (particularly 2) had great sneaking music as well as great pop songs (SNAKE EAAAAAATEEEER and Star Sailor).

Fans of early-IDM should rush to Bomberman World OST, some good hidden gem tracks.

horse riding music was great! only problem is that it was too easy to stop the momentum of it, enemy music was also great i think. the quiet nature of it is all in service of the sound design which is quite good, I think that game handles music better than just about any open world game really, also yeah hyrule castle is amazing

Sent this to my ex that I still love on Valentines day last year. Still think of her when I hear it.

Apart from personal reasons, its an excellent song and fits the part of the game it is in. Wondering around the world in Earthbound after Gigas has being defeated while this plays is great.

Oblivion as an RPG is much better than Skyrim. Skyrim is a great game but it was so dumbed down and really wasn't very big at all.

Not only that but Oblivion's soundtrack is also better than Skyrim's. Skyrim's has absolutely nothing memorable for me other than the main theme. Tracks like Harvest Dawn and Dusk at the Market take me back to so many different moments in the game whereas I don't get that from any of the Skyrim tracks despite having played Skyrim for longer than Oblivion overall.

It aged terribly but overall Oblivion is just a way better game
>>
>>72331138

>>
>>72331157
Nah man the character progression was excellent I always thought. It worked well for really long playthroughs and you had to put a lot of work in to master skills.

On the flip side Skyrim just felt too easy. You could master everything realistically if you wanted to. Nowhere near as bad as Fallout 4 though, literally jack of none, master of everything
