I think that good game music is also important in a game. It adds that little bit extra oompf to a game ... I've come up with a list of good and bad game music composers and/or games that have good or bad music. BEST Jeff van Dyck (country: Canada; work: Shogun Total War, Medieval Total War, Rome Total War) John Williams (country: United States; work: Star Wars) Kenji Kawai (country: Japan; work: Nobunaga's Ambition) Yoko Kanno (country: Japan; work: Nobunaga's Ambition) Tijs Michiel Verwest (country: Netherlands; work: Alone in the Dark) Robert L. Euvino (country: United Kingdom?; work: Caesar3, Stronghold) James Horner (country: United States; work: Braveheart) Henry Beckett (country: United States; work: Pharaoh) Dimitriy Dyachenko (country: Ukraine?; work: American Conquest) Maciej Pawlowski (country: Poland; work: Earth2150) WORST Yanco (country: ???; work: Patrician2, Patrician3) Roger Briggs (country: ???; work: Civilization3) Mark Cromer (country: ???; work: Civilization3) Paul Wilkinson (country: ???; work: SimCity3000) Celso Alberti et al. (country: ???; work: The Sims) notes: -Maciej Pawlowski makes good music with his co-composer, but the game earth2150 isn't that great to my opinion, it suffers from bugs and a sluggish mouse, also the game concept isn't original. -Yanco's music isn't exactly that bad, but the music is mediocre for what is a game concept ideally suited for good music. -About Civ3's music... please tell me your cat jumped on the keyboard and the dog ate your notes. -Maxis later bought by EA games, which in turn was bought by Vivendi, not only have a terrible Q&A and support department, but also a terrible taste in music. Good Yazz shouldn't be that hard to find and yet they failed miserably in my opinion. -In vast contrast to Maxis is Koei, this game studio always gets the best game music. -Jeff van Dyck, John Williams, Tijs Michiel Verwest and Kenji Kawai are the greatest, literally anything these guys touch turns to gold... they are excellent So what game do you think has good game music?
