A theme song that got anyone ready to race was the game THE CREW.  Sadly the game didn't live up to the potential it had.  It was a good game in many ways, but also not that great in several as well.  It always left me feeling a bit empty.  But the massive whole United States world you could drive from LA to NYC, Seattle to Miami, was pretty stinking awesome.

The theme song as well as atmospheric music used in the game was really good.  The Theme song seemed to promote this awesome game, but when you get into it, the tone just doesn't fit this rocking' theme.  The theme has urgency and weight to it, but the game has neither.

Ok, this might sound weird... but hear me out.
There is this... interesting pokémon ROM hack: Pokémon Clover.
It was made by group of 4chan "natives"... and it's a celebration of everything that 4chan represent.
This means memes... a lot of memes.
While being a giant meme game, it's actually really well made.

It also has an completely original soundtrack.
Most of the songs are meme songs, but some are 100% original... and they're actually pretty good!
Here a couple of my favorites:

Idk why I never left my comment regarding the tracks. I was gonna, but I didn't know how to properly word things, but like, what you said how it's a sort of 4chan thing got me thinking of V4-11 Hall-A. From what I know, that game is also a 4chan game...? And that game has some bumpin' music. Like... BUMPIN'

Those guys on 4chan know how to make some good music. But of course, behind those anonymous name tags, is of course a person. With talents. And shit. So naturally you're bound to find a dude that knows how to make bumpin' music.

Idk why I'm saying bumpin'

I came back to this thread to leave this here, but I totally forgot that I forgot what the hell I was gonna say about those tracks up there, so I left a message up there first cuz I remembered what I was gonna say.

Alright anyways. Y'all hear me talk about the souls series all the fuckin' time. It's my favorite series, blah blah blah.
But fuckin. It really hits me in the gut. Like, hardcore hits me in the gut knowing that the first song you hear in the entire series is called "Prologue".
First song in the entire series, starting from the first game.

And then fuckin, the last song you'll hear in the series is called "Epilogue", from the third and last game in the series.

And it ffffffffucking hits me hard because of my attatchment with this series and shit. Like, I finished High School to this series. Up til' my senior year. I played the first game Sophomore year (maybe Freshman), played the second game more or less the same year, and then the last game just a few months before I finished High School.

And it's like. It hits harder, literally just because it's called "Epilogue". Cementing the ending of the series. Like SHIT. DAMN. It's DONE. BOOM. It's OVER.

Like, yeah, duh, Miguel why the fuck're you talkin' about a series that ended like 3 fukin years ago as if it's a new thing?
Cuuuz fuckin, it JUST hit me like a few weeks or so ago that the series is over. Like. OVER. So I'm like "Aw shit. That sucks."


K I'm done, just felt like throwing this out here.

So does it make a diff to people when some companies use licensed music while others make their own original music?  Like original scores.

So does it matter?  Because we can list Vice City for having an amazing soundtrack with their true licensed music, while we can also say that Medal of Honor has a great soundtrack that is fully original in its score.  So does this make a difference to people?  Licensed vs original?

I don't think it makes much a difference. Licensed music can give as much of an atmosphere and mood portrayal than an original ost. An example aside from most open world games, would be Killing Floor 2. It has some original stuff in there in between waves (sometimes during the waves), but a lot of the OST consists of a few metal bands to give that adrenaline rush for Zed killing.

I will give slightly higher credence to original's scores and soundtracks, but there is no denying when using licensed music properly, it can create an atmosphere like no other.  So I think they are both allowed in this topic.

Idk if it is really over, the Dark Souls brand now sells way too much to just end it there like this...

I'll tell you what, maybe it's better if they don't continue the series anymore.
Much better than what happened to most of my favorite series from my highschool days.

Halo, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed...
God, what have they done...

At least FromSoftware keeps making games with the same style and "spirit" of the Dark Souls games.
It might not be the same thing, but it's better than seeing your favorite series becoming a smelly rotten corpse.

You know, I just started playing V4-11 Hall-A. I can confirm that the OST rocks!

V4-11 Hall-A is fucking great. I should get back to playing it, it's super chill.

No yeah, I'm OK with it being over in the sense that it's better to not keep going on and on. And honestly, it ended perfectly with a battle between the last two people alive.
The Ringed City DLC is great.

I didn't look, but if Minecraft isn't listed then you are all nuts. ;)

No game brought me to a time and space so unique as Minecraft has.  A game so simply, yet so complicatedly simple.  You could make your imagination come true, and the few times the music would pop in, it always seemed to be as you climbed a peak to stunning vistas or were exploring some caverns or even in the forest.  Much love to that game and the soundtrack makers.

I was about to post Minecraft and did a quick search.  I fully agree. Minecraft's soundtrack is a gem.  You never know what song will start playing and they are all crafted and memorable. It's the ultimate mix of just fitting in and not really realizing it is playing until you have this ultimate and memorable experience.

Did we ever say Planet Coaster?  Planet Zoo might be another.  Made by the same composure.  Haven't heard Planet Zoo yet.

Monster Hunter music is also pretty good!

It has pretty amazing orchestral battle themes to perfectly capture the feel of hunting epic giant monsters!
They also give a lot of personalities to the monsters themselves.
Here's a couple of my favorite tracks:

Glavenus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3P_vtNd24I
Mizutsune: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFq49J6PDkA
Nargacuga: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lo13i1DZ_R4
Rotten Vale battle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFBXcl6FW6M
Arctic Ridge Battle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHqFhUg5F0A
Teostra/Lunastra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9y-Nn_f2dX4
Brachydios: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CVVvG2k2uc
Zinogre (World mount ver.): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oY9rue5p2Tw
Bazelgeuse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRV48bV6T-Y
Deviljho (world ver): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIdjp95JMcw
Rajang (World ver): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0p_CAhgnSJE

And of course: Proof Of A Hero, the main theme of the series.
This song is played everytime the player is facing a monumental challenge, it means that you're proving to be worthy of being called a true monster hunter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9fs9lSw0BM

I don't think this has been mentioned... but the Sims game franchise has a very chill soundtrack.
