How important is in game music to you.
I've noticed lately, I've been enjoying it more. Just now I was playing FarCry 3 and was trying to stealth clear an outpost. All of a sudden dog came up behind me and the music started. It was chaotic music....the kind in action scenes in movies.
So instead of playing like it was a video game....trying to stay alive.....I played like it was an action movie - trying to go beast mode on the 4 guys at the camp.
I've also noticed that some of the newer games I've played seem to have "smart" music. The right type of music plays at the right time.....I know it's been like this for a while but it seems less scripted as before. I dunno, it's hard to explain. Almost as if the ambient music blends in with the music that starts when the action starts.
