View Full Version : Some good gaming tunes?

I'm putting together a nice youtube playlist full of background mood music.

I was wondering if the playground had any suggestions for me. :smallsmile:

Skyrim theme, for every epic moment, ever.

Here's an out-of-the-box suggestion: Portal 2. Some of the creepier exploring music from that game fits really nicely in a dungeon laced with mechanical traps and unknown devices. You don't even need Portal references to make it work! :smallcool:

Two Steps From Hell (http://youtu.be/LRLdhFVzqt4) - all epic, all the time.

Since you didn't specify which RPG, if it happens to be Paranoia, then I recommend Shiny Happy People and/or Another One Bites The Dust.

SunnO))) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sG97k6DMNVM) is pretty great for when you want to inspire unease or fear.

Just an example, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAECuVcnSsk&feature=youtu.be) but I find that the soundtrack of Super Robot Wars Original Generations can fit just about anytTROMBE OVERRIDE! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ot-0-KyPd0Y&feature=related)

For Fantasy Flair:

Conan The Barbarian OST (the original one not from the crappy re-make).

Eiswerk - Weltuntergang / Weltenklang (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulsb0XoMYj8&feature=related) (depending on CD/or youtube upload) and Der Bestimmung entgegen (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JA4tyGsrqnQ)

I'd suggest some of Mannheim Steamroller's stuff (but not Christmas, unless it's a Holiday-themed adventure). A sample, which I think would work rather well after the death of a party memberů
Most of the stuff is made with synthesizer, so you may need to watch out for the overly electronic feel of some of them, but I think a fair number work well for a fantasy campaign.

Thanks for the suggestions guys! While I go through them, have a look at the list so far: D&D (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBD382DB1C733085D&feature=mh_lolz).

Pay respect to your gaming fore-fathers and listen to Rush.

Two Steps From Hell (http://youtu.be/LRLdhFVzqt4) - all epic, all the time.

And Immediate Music as well

For my group, it needs to be something that doesn't vary in volume greatly, and they can't sing along.

For my next game I'm planning a soundtrack of mostly Rodrigo y Gabriela, Silk Road Ensemble, and Psallentes (Gregorian Chant),

I'm planning to use Septicflesh's The Great Symphonic Mass in a horror setting sometime, and I think I can recommend it. Don't be deterred by the name, or the fact that Septicflesh is a (symphonic) deathmetal band; this is the orchestral version of their last album. Here (http://youtu.be/wIZW5zIWHic) is a sample track.

Anything from Waldeck is good atmosphere music.

Yu Yu Hakusho is always good. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mNNWivqU0g)

As is Rurouni Kenshin (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsA7QG4eS-o&feature=related)

Or perhaps .hack//sign? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ar-EvbitXs&feature=related)
